Police interview with husband of missing Utah woman.
Authorities in West Valley, Utah have released video of a December 2009 interview with Josh Powell. Powell’s wife Susan disappeared days before and police are looking for leads.
12:45 in the afternoon on December 8, 2009, and a very nervous, anxious, fearful and tearful, Josh Powell sits in a West Valley City police department interview room.
Powell seems more concerned about the cuts on his hands and talking to an attorney than finding his wife Susan who vanished just a day earlier.
"I don't know where she's at and she ain't back yet. I already told you guys everything I can think of."
"What do you want us to do? You not want us to talk to you? Do you not want us to talk to anybody and leave you alone hoping that she just shows up? Is that what you want us to do?"
"No. You guys are already trying to trap me on little things like my hands for one."
"Now the issue is you have a wife that's missing. That's the issue. That's the concern. Ok, and that's why i don't understand why you're worried about having an attorney. We need to find your wife. I would think that you would want to help me find your wife. Do you want to find your wife?"
"Yeah, I do."
"Why are you making this so difficult then."
"You implied that my hands have some kind of defensive wounds on them just because they are all cut up and that's just the way they are, i just want to talk but i'm getting scared."
Towards the end of the three and a half hour interview another officer enters the room and they tell Powell his story just doesn't add up.
"One of our detectives just talked to your children and one of your children is saying mom went with you last night and she didn't come back."
"She did not go with us."
Josh is later read his rights and told he will be detained, but eventually he's let go.
"If you want to leave you can leave."
"I can leave?"
Powell was not arrested because of a lack of evidence in the case.
In February 2012, police say Powell killed his two sons and himself in an explosion in Puyallup, Washington.
Susan powell's body has not been found.
