Description

West Valley City police were running out of options. Every traditional approach to the Susan Powell case had failed. So, during the summer of 2011, detectives began brainstorming plans for a major, multi-state operation code-named Tsunami. It all hinged on the use of a court-authorized wiretap to monitor Josh Powell's phone calls, in the hopes he would let slip some important clue about the fate of his missing wife. To stimulate that conversation, police staged a bizarre public search in Ely, Nevada and they raided the Puyallup, Washington home of Josh's father, Steve Powell.

For the past three years, investigative reporter Dave Cawley has been studying thousands of police documents, journals, videos and diary entries. He has tracked down new sources, followed new leads and traced Josh Powell's trail from West Valley City, Utah, through Idaho, Oregon, Nevada and on to Washington State, where Powell killed himself and his two sons. Cold is the most complete retelling of the Susan Powell story ever. Join Dave Cawley in his search for truth. Share your thoughts: #ColdPodcast #FindSusan TwitterInstagramFacebook

I think they were just introducing the fact that it's along the Pony Express Trail, which was part of Josh's route on the day in question, and that there are a lot of abandoned mines there.

Why do we need the historical background of Ely?
