SALT LAKE CITY — Police detectives investigating the disappearance of Susan Cox Powell found the video inside a safe-deposit box, alongside some of her journals and a note “for family, friends of Susan — all except for Josh Powell, husband, I don’t trust him!”
On the tape, Susan Cox Powell is seen engaged in a mundane task — documenting all of the property inside her West Valley City home.
She walks through the house, filming pieces of personal property.
“Pearl earrings Josh’s dad bought me,” she said, showcasing some jewelry. “(Unintelligible) got in a rage as you can see and broke this. There’s studs and pearls and opals in there. Broke this and threw all my DVDs and made a mess because he was angry at me a year or two back.”
On another part of the tape, she pointed out holes in the wall that she said Josh had made, punching the wall.
