WEST VALLEY CITY, Utah (AP) - Police say they believe a missing Utah woman's brother-in-law was "heavily involved" in getting rid of her body.
West Valley police say the focus of the Susan Powell disappearance shifted to Michael C. Powell after Josh Powell killed the couple's two boys and himself in a deliberately set house fire 15 months ago.
Police held a news conference Monday to say they are closing the active investigation of Susan Powell's disappearance citing a lack of leads. They are also releasing the case file, which includes details that have been kept under wraps since Powell vanished in 2009.
Michael C. Powell killed himself Feb. 11 by jumping from a parking garage in Minneapolis.
Police have said they would reopen the Susan Powell case if they get new information.
