SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (ABC 4 News) - Josh Powell and his father Steve have released copies of Susan Powell's alleged journal entries to the media.
Steve Powell tells ABC 4 News they are releasing them to refute Chuck Cox's claim that Susan was not suicidal..
The entries are not recent and were supposedly written by Susan when she was a young teenager.
In one alleged entry, Josh Powell claims that Susan had written she had "taken 10 Ibuprofen," but then later admitted that she "wasn't trying to kill herself." The Powells believe the alleged journal entries from Susan's young life show that she was a troubled and even sexually motivated woman,who could have easily run off with another man in December of 2009.
"It is imminently clear that Susan led a double life, from the time she was 13, 14, or possibly even 12," says Steve Powell.
Chuck Cox refutes those claims, saying Josh has no right to his daughter's so-called journals. "They are not his. They are Susan's. They are alleging she is alive and if that's the case, then they are stealing her intellectual property and in violation of copyright laws. We will take action to protect our daughter," says Chuck Cox.
ABC 4 has decided not to divulge detailed information from the alleged journal entries, out of respect for Susan Powell's privacy. However, Steve Powell claims they will post them on their website that's devoted to Susan.
On Tuesday a hearing will be held in Tacoma, Washington to determine if the protective order Josh Powell filed against Chuck Cox should remain permanent.
