The father of Josh Powell apparently called in sick to work the day after Powell’s wife mysterious disappeared from the couple’s Utah home in 2009, the Salt Lake Tribune reports.

Steve Powell was off for two days in December 2009, the Tribune reports in this story.

West Valley City Utah police declined to comment on the revelation, citing their on-going investigation.

Steve Powell, meanwhile, is in Pierce County Jail, awaiting trial on voyeurism and possession of child pornography charges. He’s declined to speak to authorities about Susan Cox Powell’s disappearance.

Meanwhile, the chief of the West Valley City Police Department spoke Monday and said investigators didn’t have enough evidence to arrest Josh Powell in his wife’s disappearance. The Salt Lake Tribune has a story on the comments here.

    Why does this creature deserve any more press? Please, if you MUST report on something, report on the Cox family. Better yet, give the matter a rest. No news is no news. A once every 6 month update is fine, in lieu of something significant happening.

    This just in. The father in law of Susan Powell sneezed while in jail today. This leads everyone with no ability to think to believe he is the reason that Whooping Cough is now an epidemic.

    It took them 2 years to figure that out….WOW. NICE WORK.
