KSL’s New Podcast Digs Into Cold Case

COLD: Susan Powell Case Files: The Untold Story, a new weekly podcast from KSL Salt Lake City investigative reporter Dave Cawley, reveals unprecedented details into the case of a woman missing since 2009. Cawley reviewed tens-of-thousands of pages of case documents for the podcast.

COLD includes never-before-seen-or-heard recordings from police files, including video footage showing Susan’s father-in-law Steven Powell’s obsession with her. Also, personal journals and specifics from police interviews with the only suspect in the case, Susan’s husband, Josh Powell.

“Susan’s story has affected so many people, myself included, because it deals with universal topics like family, faith, finances, love and fear,” says Cawley, “I now understand the reasons why police never arrested Josh, even if I might not agree with them.”

Cawley reveals every twist and turn in this case. Beyond Susan’s disappearance in 2009, the death of Josh Powell and the murder of their children in 2012, new details unfold.

“This expansive project is the deepest look into the Susan Powell case by a journalist thus far,” says Sheryl Worsley, director of audience development for KSL. “Dave interviewed numerous people who have never before shared their stories. Going through these files, it was clear Josh’s deception and manipulation started well before this case became public,” says Worsley. “I’m proud of Dave’s more than three-year commitment to this story, and we are hopeful that others can draw lessons from Susan’s experience.”

No charges have ever been filed in Susan’s disappearance. Her body has never been found. But now, there may finally be more answers.


“If I die, it may not be an accident, even if it looks like one,” Susan Powell said in 2008
