1 5. Joshua and our two grandsons were not heard from until they showed up at the house at
2 approximately 5:00 p.m. on December 7, 2009. Joshua told police that he left the family horne
3 just after midnight to take our grandsons camping in subfreezing conditions. He told police that
4 when he left Susan was sleeping and when he returned she was gone. The following day I spoke
5 with him and he informed me that Susan was getting ready for bed when he left.
6 6. To date, Susan's whereabouts are unknown and police have labeled her disappearance as
7 highly suspicious. Joshua is the only named person of interest in the investigation to find Susan
8 and has been extremely uncooperative with law enforcement in helping find her.
9 7. Eleven days after Susan's disappearance Joshua moved to Puyallup, Washington, where
10 he currently resides in the horne of his father, Steven PowelL.
11 8. In 2010, Joshua and his family created a website called SusanPowell.org. The website
12 seeks to address the Powell family's belief that Susan ran off with another man, Steven Koecher.
13 Around the same time that Susan disappeared, Utah resident, Steven Koecher, also disappeared.
14 Although investigators in Susan's and Mr. Koecher's disappearance have found absolutely no
15 link between the two, the Powell family has held steadfast to this belief.
16 9. In an attempt to give credit to their outlandish belief that Susan ran off with another man,
17 the Powell family has begun publishing and distributing Susan's personal journal entries. While
18 neither I nor my wife have ever read the journal entries, out of
respect for our daughter's privacy,
19 I know that Susan began writing journal entries at the age of 8 and continued writing until she20 was approximately 20 years old. Journal entries have been published on SusanPowell.org and
21 distributed to numerous media outlets.
22 10. The journal entries are of a very private nature and detail very personal family matters.
23 One journal entry has been published on SusanPowell.org that details a quarrel between our

1 daughter and my wife. The journal entry was written by a friend of Susan's, Brittainy Cornett.
2 Ms. Cornett never consented to the release of the entry and it was written in the journal with the
3 knowledge it would be kept private. Another journal entry that was distributed to various media
4 outlets details an episode where our daughter consumed a number of over the counter headache
5 medication and had to be taken to the hospital as a precaution. While there are a number of
6 journal entries and I have only seen the ones that have been released by the Powell family, I can
7 only assume that all of them detail very personal family matters and are private.

a. Attached as Exhibit A is a true and correct copy of an excerpt from
9 SusanPowell.org
10 b. Attached as Exhibit B are true and correct copies of news articles discussing
11 journal entries and their distribution by the Powell family
12 11. The publication and distribution of these journals has caused my wife and I severe
13 emotional distress and anguish. It is horrible enough that we have had to endure the
14 disappearance of our daughter, but now her husband and his family are releasing private
15 information about our family. They have no right to release this information and it invades my
16 privacy, my wife's privacy, and most importantly, my daughter's privacy. Our daughter has
17 never consented to the release of this information and my wife and I have never consented to the
18 release of this information.19 12. My wife and I have made repeated requests to Joshua and his family to not publish the
20 journals or distribute them. We have also made repeated requests that the journals be given to us
21 as they are not Joshua's property and we know our daughter would not consent to his use of
the
22 journals.
