Susan Powell's father-in-law to be released from prison Sunday

MONROE, Wash – The father-in-law of missing Puyallup mom Susan Cox Powell, is set to be released from prison Sunday March 23rd.

The Department of Corrections announced that upon release Powell will move from the Monroe Correctional Complex to a privately owned residence in Tacoma.  Powell will be supervised by a community corrections officer who is part of a specialized sex-crime unit and he will be required to wear a GPS locator for at least the first 30 days of his community supervision.

Powell has been held at the Monroe Correctional Complex since he was convicted of voyeurism in June of 2012. Police say he took pictures of young girls in his neighborhood without their knowledge. He was sentenced to two and a half years in prison at that time.

His daughter-in-law, Susan vanished from her Utah home in 2009. Her husband Josh was the focus of the investigation until he killed himself and the couple’s two children last year in an explosion that burned down his home.

As part of his release, Powell will be required to attend a sex-offender treatment program and he will be required to get permission from his community corrections officer before leaving Pierce County.
