The body of missing mom has not been found, but all suspects in the case, including her husband Josh Powell and his brother Michael Powell are dead and after extensive searches there are no new leads to where she might be buried.
This case has riveted the nation for several years since Josh Powell tricked a social worker during a supervised visit with his two young sons and dragged them into a house he had rigged to explode, hacked them to death with a hatchet and then blew up the house while the frustrated social worker tried to rescue the boys.
Susan’s journal showed that she sensed danger, but she did not act on this sense of danger soon enough to save herself and her children. The book by Gavin DeBecker The Gift of Fear, is a perfect book for anyone to read who feels a sense of danger. Our gut instincts many times tell us that we are in danger from someone, and we should heed these feelings, they are the gift of instinct, intuition, that helps us avoid danger.

Missing Mom Susan Powell’s Journal Foreshadows Family Tragedy
SALT LAKE CITY — Susan Powell had been married about a year when she started writing a journal. She was a love-struck, 20-year-old newlywed, dreaming of the future she would build with her husband.
“I just feel incredibly lucky to have Josh,” she wrote in 2002.
Before long, however, she found herself torn. A growing sense of danger was telling her to grab her kids and flee, but her strong religious faith led her to believe she could save her young family. The journal entries turned grim.
“If I die, it may not be an accident even if it looks like one,” she wrote in 2008. “Take care of my boys.”
