WEST VALLEY CITY — The city council will announce tonight whether or not it will release police records on Susan Cox Powell’s disappearance to a lawyer representing her family.

In a statement to FOX 13, city spokesman Aaron Crim said the council will convene in a private session prior to its regular Tuesday night meeting and finalize the decision. They will then contact Anne Bremner, the lawyer for Susan’s parents, before making the decision public.

Bremner has sought the records on behalf of Chuck and Judy Cox, whose daughter vanished in 2009. The Coxes have said they want answers from police about the investigation into Susan’s disappearance. Susan’s husband, Josh, was considered a “person of interest” in the case. He killed himself and the couple’s children in February.

In an interview with FOX 13, Bremner said that if the records were denied she would likely end up suing to get them.
