Description

The criminal investigation into Susan Powell's disappearance kicked into high gear on Dec. 8, 2009. Josh Powell frantically cleaned his house and minivan before meeting detective Ellis Maxwell for a tense second interview. In secret warrants, West Valley City police identified Josh as their sole suspect in Susan's presumed kidnapping and murder. However, they narrowly missed their best chance of finding her.

For the past three years, investigative reporter Dave Cawley has been studying thousands of police documents, journals, videos and diary entries. He has tracked down new sources, followed new leads and traced Josh Powell's trail from West Valley City, Utah, through Idaho, Oregon, Nevada and on to Washington State, where Powell killed himself and his two sons. Cold is the most complete retelling of the Susan Powell story ever. Join Dave Cawley in his search for truth. Share your thoughts: #ColdPodcast #FindSusan Twitter Instagram Facebook

Josh is probably guilty, but I guess we'll never know. The detective's tactics are horrible though. Goading him into talking. I also agree that this is very biased. I haven't heard any other theories except that he killed her. I dont know if they exist or not but I'm sure some other stuff has come up as possibilities.

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!
