Police are to blame for the death of Susan's children.

I know this is a harsh statement but let's look at the facts. Denise Cox is going public making the statement that if the police had arrested Josh Powell on the forensic evidence, Susan's blood found in the home, the cheesy story Josh gave for her disappearance, the young boy's statement that they went camping with, “ mom in a container".
The amount of life insurance that Josh had out on Susan.
The midnight camping trip, etc.
Then Denise's nephews, Susan’s children would still be alive today.

As a forensic scent evidence expert, I agree with her statement 100%.
I understand the DA's office and the police wanting to be cautious when making a
"No body" case.

But when all the fingers and evidence points that Susan was dead, and that Josh was behind it. He had motive, opportunity, and all the evidence said JOSH WAS INVOLVED. HELLO?

What the DA's office and Police failed to do as far as I know, is not bring in a specially trained forensic scent evidence dog team into Josh's home, vehicle early on in the case. This should be the first thing done after the detectives interview the person who last saw the missing person.

If Josh had transported Susan’s remains as Susan’s young son said his daddy did.
Then the scent evidence search dog would have alerted on Susan's "DEATH" scent in the home and in the vehicle.

Thus giving police Probable Cause to arrest Josh for the death of Susan. Thus the two young boys would still be alive today.

So did the police fail to do their jobs or was it the district attorney who failed to oversee that the police did their jobs correctly?

You decide...

All I can say is I hope that Denise Cox's family attorney calls me to testify.

The jury would love to hear what I have to say about the mishandling of this case.

Dogs don't know how to lie.

With all of the cadaver dogs alerting at a shallow grave in their search for Susan Powell and the arepolice not finding any human remains in the grave, they need to do the following things.

1). Dig deeper. We had one suspect dig a 7 foot deep grave near Amboy Washington
and dump the victim there.

2). Bring in Ground penetrating radar to see if there's anything deeper.

3). Draw a circle 1 mile around the grave site and bring in the cadaver dogs to work an loose air scent grid in that area. If a cougar or coyote spread the remains. That's where they will find the bones.

4). Or a suspect removed the remains and the dogs are alerting on the body fluids that soaked into the ground. Do a DNA on the soil and see if it matches the DNA of Susan powell.

How I suggest you find Susan Powell missing in Utah.

Police should bring in an expert such as myself only after they've worked their current information. When Susan disappeared the police should have pinged her cell phone to establish if her phone was working and her last known location. The police should also polygraph Josh's father as well as Susan's husband Josh.

Next let me bring in a forensic detection dog train to detect minute amounts of human live and cadaver scent. We can then show the police if there is any "Death, or Stress alerts" inside Josh's or his father's vehicles. Or on any of their tools such as a shovel.

Next bring me out to the "Caves" the police are interested in. This will show if Josh, Susan, or Josh's father was in any of the caves and we might be able to detect if she's still there dead or left on her own power.
