Susan Powell Update: Remains Found in Idaho Unlikely Those of Missing Utah Mom
Police in Utah are investigating whether the remains of a woman found in Idaho are those of missing West Valley woman Susan Powell. Detectives believe that it is very unlikely that the remains are Powell's.
The badly decomposed remains were found last Friday about 12 miles east of Idaho Falls, Idaho.
Idaho authorities "are pretty sure it's one of their missing-person cases from three years ago," West Valley Police Capt. Tom McLachlan told the Deseret News. "They're pretty positive it's going in that direction."
The West Valley police department has named Josh Powell, husband to Susan Powell, as a “person of interest” in the case. Josh Powell has not been arrested for Susan Powell’s disappearance, and detectives say only that interviews with him left “more questions than answers.
