(Newser) – The husband of missing Utah woman Susan Powell has declined to grant authorities a third interview and has also retained counsel. Police seem positively jilted. “This is very disappointing to us and it is not helpful for this missing person investigation at all,” a cop tells the Salt Lake Tribune. “I guess his attorney has advised him against it.” Still, police do not consider Joshua Powell a suspect in his wife’s disappearance.
