Co-worker: Steve Powell spoke of Utah camping trip

Published April 6, 2012 4:09AM (EDT)

OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) — A co-worker of Susan Powell's father-in-law says Steve Powell traveled to Utah for a camping trip around the time Susan Powell disappeared.

Attorney Anne Bremner says she has spoken to the co-worker and reviewed the statement the colleague sent to authorities. In her account, the co-worker says Steve Powell talked about leaving around Thanksgiving 2009 for a camping trip in Utah with his son, Josh Powell.

The co-worker thought it was odd. Steve Powell spoke with her a week or two later and said it was cold but fun.

Susan Powell was last seen Dec. 6 of that year. Josh Powell had said that he took a late-night camping trip in Utah with his two boys on the night Susan Powell disappeared.

An attorney for Steve Powell did not immediately return a call seeking comment.
