Episode 104 - True Crime - If I Can't Have You - The Disappearance of Susan Powell - Author Rebecca Morris

Prove me wrong

What happened to Susan Powell? Did she simply seize her moment to escape a bad marriage while her husband and children were out camping, or was it something else? Her husband Josh was erratic and disinterested in the efforts to locate his wife after her disappearance, he did not respond to inquiries from authorities and actually moved out of state less than a month after Susan went missing...were these the actions of a jilted lover upset about being abandoned, or the movements of a potential murderer trying to escape? Author and investigative reporter Rebecca Morris joins the podcast to discuss the tragic story of Susan Powell's disappearance and ultimate murder suicide of her children and husband and the breakdowns along the way in the criminal justice system and child welfare that led to this terrible outcome.

IF I CANT HAVE YOU-UPDATE-Rebecca Morris

True Murder: The Most Shocking Killers

Every once in a great while a genuine murder mystery unfolds before the eyes of the American public. The tragic story of Susan Powell and her murdered boys, Charlie and Braden, is the only case that rivals the Jon Benet Ramsey saga in the annals of true crime. When the pretty, blonde Utah mother went missing in December of 2009 the media was swept up in the story – with lenses and microphones trained on Susan's husband, Josh. He said he had no idea what happened to his young wife, and that he and the boys had been camping in the middle of a snowstorm.Over the next three years bombshell by bombshell, the story would reveal more shocking secrets. Josh's father, Steve, who was sexually obsessed with Susan, would ultimately be convicted of unspeakable perversion. Josh's brother, Michael, would commit suicide. And in the most stunning event of them all, Josh Powell would murder his two little boys and kill himself with brutality beyond belief.It will be eleven years December 6th since Susan Cox Powell disappeared. Her story is still unfolding. A definitive update on the case will air on ABC'S "20/20" on Friday, Nov. 6. The NYC crew came to Seattle in early March to interview Rebecca just as the city was locking down for Covid. The crew was there for the very important court trial involving the Washington State Department of Health and Human Services and their responsibility in the deaths of Charlie and Braden. There are other events happening next week that could postpone the airing of the 20/20 program November 6th.IF I CAN'T HAVE YOU-UPDATE: Susan Powell, Her Mysterious Disappearance and the Murder of her Children-Rebecca Morris

BOY MISSING-Rebecca Morris

True Murder: The Most Shocking Killers

It's one of the most shocking unsolved missing-child cases in the world. Where is Kyron Horman? Why hasn't the woman who police suspect is responsible for his 2010 disappearance-Kyron's stepmother-been charged? That the seven-year-old disappeared from his grade school got the attention of parents around the world. The twists of the case -adultery, sexting, murder-for-hire-keep the story in the media spotlight. New York Times bestselling author Rebecca Morris tells the minute-by-minute, day-by-day story of the long investigation, the search for Kyron, and his family's heartache. Based on years of research and interviews with Kyron's family, "Boy Missing" also examines what recourse families have as they wait for a loved one to be found and challenges a common assumption in no-body cases: that prosecutors must wait until there is a confession or remains are found. No-body cases can be prosecuted successfully. BOY MISSING: The Search for Kyron Horman-Rebecca MorrisMURDER#fabfitfunpartner

A MURDER IN MY HOMETOWN - REBECCA MORRIS

House of Mystery Radio on NBC

On a fall evening in Corvallis, Oregon, in 1967, 17-year-old Dick Kitchel, a senior at the high school, disappeared after attending a party. Ten days later, his body was spotted by two children as it floated down the Willamette River. He had been beaten and strangled.     The investigation into his murder played out during one of the most dramatic years in America. Life in Corvallis, a college town, had offered a protective, idyllic life to many. But in 1967 to '68, Vietnam, a presidential campaign, the assassinations of Martin Luther King, Jr., and Robert Kennedy, and the murder of Dick Kitchel changed that.   His friends thought his death was ignored because Dick was from the wrong side of the tracks. Police and the district attorney thought they knew who had murdered the boy but never made an arrest. Decades later, a cold-case detective believed he, too, had solved the case. However, once again, justice was elusive.    Now, nearly 50 years later, a classmate, New York Times best-selling author Rebecca Morris, returns to her hometown to write about how the murder changed the town and the lives of Dick Kitchel's friends.Support this show http://supporter.acast.com/houseofmysteryradio.
