Susan was way too good for her husband. I would have ran the moment I found out my father in law was a creep and taking pictures of me showering and going to the restroom... and then gotten a divorce when things started going downhill. Sometimes we just keep looking at a person's potential and thinking that's love. When the intimacy stops we should know better. I know religion tells you to be steadfast in love but there are exceptions. She wae very beautiful. I hope her family finds some closure before they pass. I couldn't imagine the agony everyday of wondering if she's actually gone or was maybe sold off to human trafficking. With how twisted that powell family is/was, I wouldn't put it past any of them. I feel dirty even living in the vicinity of slc working in the same dept and walking the same floors Susan once did at WF Investments. One of those chairs belongs to her. It's all wrong

As I listen to this podcast, all I can think is how similar my ex husband is to Josh. This podcast is so heartbreaking, so terrifying, and SO NECESSARY. Thank you, a million times over, for this podcast..I hope it helps others wake up to their situation.

it makes me sick that there WERE leads on places to search, and yet I don't believe they've looked hard enough. This family needs closure!! We all do

if she's in one of those mines, they're probably never going to find her. Josh is a sick sick man

Maybe I'm super gullible, but Josh's behavior seems classic depression--apathy, lateness, forgetfulness. Everything is believable from a standpoint of him being innocent. I was completely on board with him being guilty until the second interview. Right now, it seems more likely that Susan woke up, realized she has no car to get to work, and called someone or walked to somewhere to get a ride, and then that's when something bad happened. It's at least a plausible enough theory that the detective and this podcast's journalist should have explored it (assuming they don't?). Tunnel vision is never good for crime-solving.

Heidi Moffett I believe you are super gullible. He was caught in lie after lie in the first interview.

Heidi Moffett I’m all for this theory and didn’t want to just assume it was josh either but how should we explain the lack of foot prints or tire tracks in the heavily snowed in area around the house? Or his dad’s journal entries just days after her disappearance? Just a very interesting case with lots of options!
