Spend an evening at the Eccles Theater diving even deeper into the untold story of the disappearance of Susan Powell, hosted by “COLD: Susan Powell Case Files: The Untold Story” podcast investigative KSL reporter Dave Cawley.  

“COLD: Susan Powell Case Files: The Untold Story LIVE” will provide Utah locals who have been following this case since 2009, the opportunity to ask their own questions to host, Dave Cawley, and other guests. The evening will include unseen footage, audio and new developments not explored in the podcast as well as special guests involved with the case. “In a live event, Cold ditches the script. We’ll share more of our personal experiences investigating the case. You’ll hear the story behind the story. We’ll discuss the important themes and issues raised by Susan’s disappearance and share how to turn those discussions into positive action in our own individual lives,” says Cawley.

The COLD podcast premiered in November 2018 and has been downloaded more than 10 million times and continues to be a trending podcast on Apple Podcasts. 
“Susan Powell’s case is a cautionary story many are connecting with. Recognizing the signs of domestic abuse before tragedy strikes is a significant reason for us to tell this story, and a reason we can feel good about. We are hearing from scores of people who say they saw the signs because of this telling of Susan’s story and we hope it means fewer cases of violence in our community,” says Sheryl Worsley, Director of Audience Development at KSL.

A portion of proceeds from every ticket sold will benefit the Utah Domestic Violence Coalition.

COLD is a weekly podcast from KSL investigative reporter Dave Cawley that reveals unprecedented details into Susan’s case. Cawley reviewed tens-of-thousands of pages of case documents for the podcast and reveals every twist and turn in this case. Beyond Susan’s disappearance in 2009, the death of Josh Powell and the murder of their children in 2012, new details unfold. No charges have ever been filed in Susan’s disappearance. Her body has never been found, but now, there may finally be more answers.

“Susan Powell’s story reaches people on many levels. People connect with her struggle to find and protect her independence in an abusive relationship. They identify with her love for her boys and desire to protect them. They want to understand what happened to her and why Josh did what it appears he did. Cold sheds new light on that question and brings answers to a case that has lacked them for a very long time,” explains Dave Cawley.

“If I die, it may not be an accident, even if it looks like one.” -Susan Powell, 2008
