(KCPW News) More than two and a half years after their daughter, Susan Powell, went missing, Chuck and Judy Cox are continuing to search for answers. They’re hoping the West Valley City Council can help by granting the family all of the investigative files related to Susan Powell’s disappearance. Susan’s father says this is the third time the family has requested the information.
“We feel like at this point with our daughter still missing, and our two grandchildren dead, and Josh gone there is not much point in them withholding information at this point,” Cox said. “We’ve made an official request and they denied it. We’ve made an appeal and they denied that. We feel like we don’t really know what is going on. We feel like there may be some tips that they missed.”
The Cox family’s attorney, Anne Bremner, will address the council Tuesday. Chuck Cox says he and his wife have tried to be patient with the police, but the process has gone on too long.
“We want to know what information the police actually have,” Cox said. “They have been promising us for a long time telling us that one day they’ll tell us everything and we’ll understand why they did what they did, we’ll understand all this stuff. Well, we feel that time has come. We’d like to know why they did what they did; why Josh wasn’t arrested, because the evidence we know about there was plenty to arrest him on.”
Cox says if the request for the records is denied the legal fight will continue, even if it means a lawsuit.
