Scene Of the Crime
The Disappearance of Susan Powell, Part 2
Susan Powell’s journals reveal a young woman who yearned to be a wife and mother. And Susan was an amazing mother to Charlie and Braden.
Oh, how she tried to be a good wife to Josh Powell. But, her husband didn’t make that easy. Not by a long shot.
Trapped in an emotionally abusive marriage, she leaned into her religion for guidance and support. No one could have seen the depths of depravity Josh would delve into to get what he wanted.
In episode 2, we continue to unpack how Susan’s disappearance and Josh’s behavior afterward would set in motion what would become a runaway freight train of events hurtling toward the unthinkable: The murders of Charlie and Braden by their own father.
