Susan Powell Search: Unidentified Remains Found

Posted by BOC Staff | Josh Powell,Michael Powell,Steven Powell,Susan Powell | Wednesday 14 September 2011 5:12 pm

Topaz Mountain, Utah-  In a search effort today,  based solely on intelligence gained by recent warrants served on Joshua Powell,  the husband of missing Utah woman Susan Powell,  human remains have been located.

Cadaver dog teams were utilized this afternoon, and confirmed positive alerts in an area Josh Powell is known to “rock hunt”.

The waiting game begins,  the remains could not be identified as that of a man or woman, and the medical examiner is enroute.   Abc4 , who had been invited by the search effort,  was subsequently restricted from the crime scene upon recovery.

Chuck  Cox,  father of Susan Cox Powell,  said he believes police are close to completing their investigation in this case and it is due for a break, but stopped short of confirming if he believes are the remains of his daughter.

“I absolutely believe they have a specific reason for being there.”

    Breaking news on KOMO Seattle—Steven Powell has been arrested and charged with 14 counts of voyeurism and one count of child pornography. This was just on the 11 pm news and I caught the tail end of the broadcast, saw his slimy face as they led him away in handcuffs!!!

    They stated that Susan Powell’s children are in protective custody! I am freaking out as I try to type this-we all knew this guy was a major perv and now he has finally been arrested.

    I am sure this is just the tip of the iceberg concerning SP!

    I am sick as I think about Susan’s children being allowed to live with this creep for so long. What is the world coming to?


    “Several computers, digital media, recordings, and photographs seized from Steven and Josh Powell’s home contained “thousands of images of females being videotaped without their knowledge, including Susan Powell,” said the Pierce County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office. “The photographer focuses on the women’s buttocks, breasts, and genital areas. Many images were of minor females.” Some of the victims have been identified as children who used to live near Steve.

    “We found many pictures of young girls as young as, we believe, 7 years old in explicit positions,” Pierce County sheriff’s spokesman Ed Troyer said. “They’re pictures he shouldn’t have taken — pictures of girls in showers, on toilets, in the bath … He’s basically a peeping Tom with high-end camera equipment.”

    I knew Steven Powell was a perv., but child porn? They should immediately give his grandchildren to the Cox family. I will not write what I think should happen to pedophiles, but I will say that we have no use for them as a society. Here is the link:

    So, the creapy father in law is a perv!!! I knew there was just something that rubbed me the wrong way about him…..secretly recording females as young as 8 years of age…..what a sick individual….

    Mama always said if it walks like a dog, talks like a dog and LOOKS like a dog, its probably a dog. Thanks Mr. Powell for proving Mama right again. What an idiot. Giving TV interviews when he knows LE is holding all that evidence. The workings of a sick mind can be almost fascinating.

    Here we go, here we go, here we go………..FIL arrested for child pornography, some pics included neighborhood children…Perv smiled right into the camera’s face as LE ushered him into a vehicle. Maybe just maybe something will come out of this other than the fact even more have been violated by this man.

    Oh My. We knew there was something seriously wrong with that FIL…
    Father-in-Law of Missing Utah Mom Charged With Possession of Child Pornography

  7. lizzy says:

    So now that Steve Powell has been arrested on charges including child pornography (for photos HE took), does the Cox family have a good chance to get custody of the boys ASAP?

    Please say yes.

    Finally, something is happening in this case – hopefully, the link will post.

  9. Essay Kaye says:

    Father-in-law busted on child porn and voyeurism. Police also found images of Susan included in his stash. I am hoping that justice for Susan is not far behind all of this recent police work.

  10. Mary says:

    Steve Powell has been arrested on l count of child porn, and voyorism.

  11. Mary says:

    Steve Powell was charged with child porn. and voyeurism, and he had hundred of photos of Susan and other women who did not know they were being filmed. He is being jailed. LE is hopeful that he will give up Susan’s location in hopes of making a deal.

    (Sorry about above spelling!)

    Thank you for posting that link. So Steven P is 75% certain that Susan and Steven K will be found together, is he? Even though NO ONE ELSE has reported EVER seeing them together, and there is NO evidence that were ever in the same place at the same time before their “abscondences.”

  13. lizzy says:

    No wonder he was concerned about the “embarassing videos” that were taken.

    Is he going to say the little girls were “very sexual” as well?

  14. lizzy says:

    I forgot and posted this with the link first, but it did go into moderation. Just in case, here it is again. Sorry for all the posts but I am more than peeved at this skeeve.

    Praying Mr. Cox makes the call.

  15. [...] WA- You knew it was coming.   Steven Powell,  unaffectionately dubbed Freak-in-law by,  was arrested yesterday after child porn and non-consensual hidden video [...]

  16. Carol says:

    I read in my local paper this morning that Josh Powell has also been arrested for Porn.

    The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.

    Blink, I think something must be going cuckoo with your site. I posted earlier today, a link about LE finding bones as well as bits of clothing or fabric, and charred wood…but tonight I only see one comment from September 28th and nothing at all for the 29th.

    Is that a server problem? A browser problem? Or other?
