Baby Lisa Irwin

Baby Disappears From Bedroom While Mother Sleeps

From KMBC / Channel 9 :

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Just hours after being introduced as the legal counsel for the parents of missing 11-month-old Lisa Irwin, attorney Joe Tacopina appeared on network morning news to talk about the investigation and apparent changes in the mother's time line. When asked by "Good Morning America's" George Stephanopoulos about changes in Deborah Bradley's story about when she last saw the baby, Tacopina denied there was any sort of discrepancy.

"There's not a four-hour gap," Tacopina said. "There's not, because what she said was she put the baby to bed around 6:30 p.m., at one point, during one of the 13 hours of interviews, she had said she believed she had checked on her at 10:30 p.m. It's not an inconsistency. It may be a recollection refreshed at some later point, but it's certainly not material as to whether she had anything to do with the disappearance of her baby. Other witnesses were there that fixed the time lines."

Tacopina reasserted his belief that the parents had nothing to do with their daughter's disappearance.

"There have been some things that have been shared with PD that I'm not going to reveal at this point. But there is enough that clearly eliminates them in my mind -- some of their actions, their candor, the immediacy of their actions, things that were missing in the house when Jeremy came home," Tacopina said.

Tacopina said he did not want to cast aspersions on the police, but he said he had problems with the way some detectives have handled the investigation.

"Some of the local police officers in this case have conducted themselves in a way that to me is baffling. For instance, within hours of their reporting this baby missing, which was instantaneously, where Deborah is trembling, one of the interrogators, I'll call them, actually accused of her of murdering her baby without a stitch of proof," Tacopina said. "Imagine for a second, assume, that this baby was kidnapped or taken, and this mother who's in terror is being accused, without any evidence, by the person who's supposed to be helping her find her baby of committing murder."

Tacopina then added that KCPD is doing its job in trying to find the baby.

Bill Stanton, the private investigator hired last week by someone anonymous to help the parents also appeared with Tacopina. Stanton said he is convinced that someone outside the house took the baby.

"My feeling is that baby is alive. Someone has her," Stanton said.

From ABC News :

New surveillance footage of a mystery man may support the claim by the parents of Lisa Irwin that their daughter was abducted.

In video obtained exclusively by "Good Morning America," a man dressed in white is seen leaving a wooded area, at 2:30 a.m. the night of Lisa's disappearance.

The family says Lisa was abducted and they point to key witnesses who saw a suspicious man that night, carrying a baby.

Mike Thompson told ABC News that he was on his way home from work around 4 a.m. on Oct. 4 when he saw a man in a T-shirt carrying a baby at an intersection about three miles from the Irwin home.

It was shortly after 4 a.m. that Lisa's parents said they discovered she was missing.

"[At] 4 a.m., 45 degrees, baby don't have a coat or nothing and this guy is walking down the street and I thought it was kind of weird," Thompson said.

He thought the sight was so unusual that he recalled considering offering the man and baby a ride home, but couldn't because he was on his motorcycle.

He later reported what he saw to police and told ABC News he is convinced the baby was Lisa.

Thompson described the man as around 5-feet-7, between 140 and 150 pounds and in his late 30s or early 40s.

A few hours earlier, a couple living three houses down from the Irwin family said they saw a similar sight. A woman and her husband said they saw a man in a T-shirt carrying a baby. They thought the situation was so unusual that they reported it to police on the morning of Oct. 4.

"It was shocking because I couldn't imagine anyone outside walking with their baby in the cold like that with no clothes on," the woman told ABC News.

Bradley has said that Lisa was wearing purple shorts and a purple T-shirt when she last saw her, but the neighboring couple said the baby they saw did not appear to be wearing any clothing.

"We seen the little arm, the leg, it didn't look like the baby had on any clothes, just a diaper," she said.

ABC News consultant and former FBI agent Brad Garrett said the timeline of events is strange.

"Are you going to logically abduct a child, let's say in the midnight area, then 2-4 hours later, you are spotted in the proximity of the neighborhood. I mean, that doesn't make any sense," he said. "It could be true, of course, but the logic of abducting a child is so you can take the child to some other location."


This case caught my eye on the TV the other night and I realized that this baby was still missing and they had no clues. There have been shoes dropping all over the place and I could see right away that the cops suspected the parents. There have been a lot of parents killing their children as of late so you can't really blame them for jumping to that conclusion. In fact, I heard there was decomp found in the parent's bedroom, next to the bed. And then I heard several eyewitnesses had given testimony seeing someone with the child in the wee hours of the morning. Wow. I was fascinated. I love cases where there are shoes dropping, don't you? So I drew up the charts and started with the time when dad came home and found the baby missing. Those charts gave immediate information that dovetailed with some of the facts that have come to light. When a chart pops out at me and is very readable right from the start, I just cannot resist. So let's take a look at what those charts had to say.

The baby's mother says she looked in on the baby at 10:30 pm. This was at first considered a discrepancy in her story because she had said she had last seen the baby when she put her to bed at 6:30 pm. Witnesses presented the information that she had actually checked on the baby at 10:30 pm. The charts seem to support this. This chart shows the first house ruler, Mercury, together with the fifth house ruler, Venus, in the fifth house (children). In fact, the first house ruler, the fifth house ruler and the fourth house ruler are all disposed of by Venus, which rules the fifth. This means that the reason the mother (first house ruler) is in the child's bedroom (fifth house) is to check on the child (fifth house ruler being Venus) and that this bedroom is inside the home (fourth house ruler in the fifth). Interestingly, in addition, Mercury rules the first house and is also the traditional marker of children, underscoring the report that the mother was with the child at this time. I think she is telling the truth. And, also, the baby looks fine and in her bed at this hour, as well.

The charts for 11 pm show the appearance of a new person coming into the home. Saturn is in Libra, which is ruled by Venus and Venus rules the fifth house cusp. Venus is also still placed in the fifth, showing the baby in her room. The Moon rules the first (and co rules the entire chart) and is in the sign Capricorn in the seventh house and disposed of by Saturn. This shows me that the mom knew this person who entered the home and that she probably let them into the house. Because her marker is disposed of by this persons marker, I would venture to guess that she knew this person was coming. Mercury rules the fourth house as well and has moved up under the Sun's beams, hinting at danger in the home. But I do not see any direct threat from this particular person and I do believe the mother knew this person and was not afraid.

And to consider the fact that reports have the mother drinking that night and possibly drunk, I notice that the first house ruler, Mercury, is in the fifth house, which is the "party" house. This could be showing us the mother partying. Notice that her co ruler, the Moon, is in the eighth house in Capricorn and disposed of by Saturn, also in the fifth and conjoined Mercury. This grouping creates energies that make the Moon, Saturn and Mercury the rulers and markers for mommy. Moon square Saturn shows intemperance and lack of self control; possible emotional rebellion. This might be the woman who says, "damn it all, I'm gonna have a drink!" or it might be the woman who says, "people may not want me to drink, but darn it, I'm going to do it" and possibly to spite someone. Saturn in Libra is a dignified position but square to Moon in Capricorn, which is in fall, can indicate a spiteful mood, especially with the Moon in the eighth. This drinking binge might have been a sort of revenge on someone. Perhaps her husband admonished her when she drank in the past? Or perhaps she had been asked not to drink? It just feels like an act of rebellion when looking at these aspects. One last note- I see that the eighth house ruler, Saturn, is conjoined to the twelfth house ruler, Venus, with the first house ruler Mercury there in the fifth. This woman wasn't kidding when she says she blacked out. She was literally unconscious at some point and I think that might have been the goal. I think she was drowning her sorrows, but this is my opinion here and not something shown the charts per se.

Running charts for the next few hours show nothing outstanding except the visit from the friend. At midnight, everything looks to be ordinary. So I jump ahead to the 2:30 am hour, which the reported hour of the first sighting for the strange man. The video cams have him coming out of the woods at this time so I want to look at the charts to see what they say. You can clearly see this man in the woods in this chart. The seventh house ruler, which always shows us the next person we will meet, is in the ninth house, the traditional marker for outdoors wooded areas. But Uranus is cusping, moving into the eighth, which shows a change in the man's situation, which corresponds with him leaving the woods at this time. So he is seen "coming out". But I believe this sighting was at a time after he left the Irwins' home with the baby. In fact, I believe he entered the home sometime between 2 am and 3 am, which centers the time close to the time he was seen leaving the woods. Uranus, already in the ninth house at 2 am and showing this man to be in the woods, is disposed of by Mars in Leo, right at the first house cusp. This shows a direct confrontation, some sort of attack. The first house is the marker for the mother in this case. The fifth house ruler, which marks the baby, is in the tenth house, again showing the baby still in the home. Mars and the first house cusp are disposed of by the Sun in the third house, showing all of this to happen in one neighborhood, an area familiar not only to the victim but to the abductor as well. In fact, I believe this man came from an area in the same neighborhood, very close to the baby's family home. Sun is conjunct Mercury, which is the traditional marker for children and babies, showing that the baby and the home in question was a target. This was not a random event. The node is in the fifth house, disposed of by the baby's marker, again saying that this baby was a target and it's because this home was in this neighborhood.

Discuss This Case At My Forum

The chart for 3 am appears to show us the abduction. Notice how the seventh house ruler is in the eighth and the eighth house ruler is in the seventh, a descriptor showing a criminal or someone performing a criminal act. This marker traditionally shows us someone seedy and dangerous, who lives on the edge and engages in very sleazy activities. Here he is engaged in a criminal act, shown by the marker for the baby moving into the ninth house. Has he taken the baby to the woods? Going back to the actual entrance into the home, Mars rules the fourth house so I believe he broke in (attacked the home) as Mars crossed over the first house cusp. This occur ed sometime between 2 and 2:30 am. Because Mars is in Leo and disposed of by the Sun in the third, I think he got in through the garage or some other outside access area but one where the car is kept, such as a carport or driveway area with a door to the house. Mars is right at the first house cusp at the time of entry so I think he went into the parent's bedroom first. He probably stood right beside their bed (Leo is the natural ruler of the fifth house and a marker for a den or bedroom). Besides, Sun is in Libra, and Libra also describes bedrooms, especially joint ones where couples sleep. So this man went in there first, to make sure they were asleep or to kill them if they posed a problem. And because the mother was the only one home, I would say he stood next to her for a moment (Mars at the cusp) and on realizing that she was unconscious, left her there. The charts have her marker, the Moon, in the sixth house, which can often show a handicap that affects performance and Capricorn is a common marker in the charts of alcoholics. So I think she was telling the truth, as embarrassed as I am sure she was, when she said that she was stone cold drunk on the night the baby was taken.

So the charts comply with the reports that this man came out of the woods. In fact, the charts support the idea that he either lives in the woods or spends a lot of time there and probably took the baby into the woods at some point. The chart for 3 am clearly shows the baby's marker, Jupiter, in the ninth house. Jupiter is disposed of by Venus in Libra in the third house, showing the baby being moved about in the same area. The third house shows the neighborhood and Venus is on the cusp of the third as well as being the marker for the baby's location. This shows us the baby being moved around (Libra) on foot (Jupiter in Taurus) in the same neighborhood (the third house). Libra shows us the baby being taken west or a westerly direction from the family home. The actual location itself is described by the ninth house, which means a wooded area in the outdoors. The baby could be literally outdoors or she could be in a cabin or other home in the woods. The large number of planets in Libra in the third seem to indicate a mobile home or trailer. The ninth house indicates a southwestern area so I would assume the baby was taken west on foot and once in the desired area, was located in the southwest quadrant of that area. So if it's in a trailer park, then it's in the southwest area of the park. And the park itself would be west from the family home.

Taurus is a strong marker, ruling the tenth and being the sign the baby's marker is placed in, so I would guess that the location where the baby is being kept has Taurean qualities. This means the area would have gardens of some sort, with people seeding and growing plants, most likely food crops. This could be private gardens with beans and corn or it could be larger agricultural operations. There may be wheat fields in the area, as well and a cattle pasture, cattle farms or slaughterhouses for cattle. There are going to be lots of trees in the area with small animals like porcupines or groundhogs and landscaped parks with turtles and other amphibians. There may be lumber mills or other lumber operations in the area, mostly serving companies that make furniture. Look also for the bank nearest to the family home and the closest luxury hotel. These can serve as markers for the general area where the baby was or still is being kept.

Right away, I want to say that I do not see a death pattern in any of these charts. I do not see the baby being dead, being murdered or in danger of death. I believe that the baby is still alive right now but I am hoping the charts will help us figure out why the baby was taken. So, the next chart I worked on was for 4:00 am, which was the time of a second sighting of the man with a baby and also the time at which daddy returned home to later discover Lisa was gone. So what does the chart say about the second sighting? We know that the man was seen by another man who was returning home from work, much the same as Lisa's daddy who was coming home from work himself. You can see that the seventh house ruler is in the sixth so I am allowing the seventh house ruler to mark the witness rather than the abductor. This man was coming home from work so this makes sense. The baby, I would guess, would be ruled by Saturn (fifth house ruler), the Moon (chart co ruler) and Mercury (traditional ruler for babies). I think it's interesting that Neptune, which rules the witness, is disposed of by Uranus in the eighth house, which seems to say that he witnessed a "criminal act". I am thinking that the abductor is shown by the eleventh house (the seventh from the fifth) and is marked by the Moon as well. So the abductor and the baby share a marker which is not unusual when you consider that the baby is not a real player in the case, being basically helpless. But the baby and the abductor are one, with the baby dependant upon this person for her fate. The Moon is in the fifth house, another traditional marker for children, and is disposed of by Saturn in the second house, which is conjunct to Mercury, the traditional marker for children. So this all works together. Mercury rules the first and second house and is conjoined to the other planets in the second house, which seems to indicate a financial transaction of some sort. Uranus in the eighth is disposed of by Mars in the twelfth and these planets are trine and also involved in a larger grand trine involving the node. This is a big operation, it's secret and it's criminal. Uranus in Aries is a strong marker for outlaws, theives and bootleggers. Aries is the traditional marker for business, the second house rules transactions and money and Mars in the twelfth describes aggressive activity, even violence, that goes on in secret. This is a criminal enterprise. And they took the baby for a financial reason.

Looking at the charts for 4 am, 4:15 am and 4:30 am, I am convinced that the baby was taken and then sold almost immediately. There was a transaction in the making that required a baby and this child was chosen because she was accessible, probably the right sex and possibly the right age. All of the planets in the second house, including the first and tenth house markers, the fifth house dispositor, the dispositor of the Moon and the second house marker, presenting in a stellium, is a powerful indicator in this chart. In fact, you just cannot ignore it. The biggest indicator is the fifth house marker in conjunction with the first house marker in the second house, showing us the adult with the child selling the child. Mercury is disposed of by Venus in Libra so I am guessing the child was sold to a woman. This is not written in stone and there is a possibility this person was a man (Libra is a masculine sign) but Venus is a feminine marker so it's possible that this was a woman or, perhaps, a man and a woman, a couple. Libra being the sign of marriage and partnerships it is very possible that the baby was purchased by a couple, a man and a woman. Little baby Lisa became a black market baby sold in a black market adoption? It is very possible.

The chart for 6 am show the baby being moved again. She is in the hands of the merchant or buyer (Mercury in the first ruled by Mercury). They may still be waiting to finalize the sale, waiting for the money it seems, with Venus, the second house ruler, still in the second. But the baby is in the hands of the person who is either selling or buying her. The first house ruler and tenth house ruler is Mercury and it is disposed of by Venus which, as I already pointed out, is still in the money house. Neptune, the seventh house ruler, is now in the fifth house, so it looks like they are hiding the baby. Neptune also indicates secret activity, possibly illegal. Uranus is right at the seventh house cusp and I consider Uranus a marker for adoption. Neptune in the fifth definitely describes that situation in which one "doesn't know who the parents are". The baby will never know who her parents are, I suppose. The Moon, a secondary marker, is in the fourth house, showing the baby and the abductor to be in a home now. Jupiter ruling the fourth house cusp with Jupiter in Taurus in the eighth combined with the Moon in Capricorn indicates a wealthy neighborhood. The Moon in Capricorn is disposed of by Saturn in Libra in the first, conjoined with Mercury, seeming to say that these rich people wanted a baby. I know this seems far fetched but this is what the charts are saying. This baby was taken by black market criminals and sold to a wealthy couple in the same state. This baby was not driven or flown anywhere. This baby is not dead and the people who have baby Lisa are wealthy and beyond suspicion.

This baby was taken west and then situated southwest in that area. She started in a wooded area, perhaps even a trailer park in the woods, and then moved to a city location where she was sold. And from there she was taken to a wealthy, upscale area south of the city. This is an upscale neighborhood with trees, gardens, nice landscaping, large homes and expensive cars. Capricorn describes someone self employed who owns a lucrative company with many employees and a high profile in the community. Taurus describes frugal people who are careful with investments and money and have collectible items like antiques and art. The house is described as having gardens with lush landscaping and lots of flowers; floral perfume in the air. They may have a large dog. There may be an organic vegetable garden on the property. There could be a large garage, tall trees near the house, lots of valuables stored in trunks and closets. The house itself would have lots of dark, shadowy places in the lower rooms, corner alcoves and cornices on the windows with heavy window treatments. There is an overt appearance of luxury and comfort. Everything is plush; stuffed furniture, thick carpeting, big pillows and bolstered seating areas. The kitchen and pantry are probably oversized with lots of cooking appliances. There will not be a lot of electronics or other high tech gear and there won't be a lot of books or magazines. These people like to eat, drink fine wine, watch the wildlife in their yard, tend to their gardens and snuggle. They are lovers of the finer things in life. And apparently they wanted a baby and couldn't get one the usual way. When you find the neighborhood, south of the city, then you will find their house on the north end of the neighborhood.

I hope they find this baby soon. The charts for the time of the abduction show the first house ruler and fifth house ruler within a few degrees of each other. This tells me that the baby was nearby even when they discovered her missing. She was never very far away. Watching the movement between these two rulers, we see that the Moon does translate the light between Mercury and Saturn which can indicate that the parents will eventually see this baby again. Now, whether that is dead or alive I cannot say. All I can say is that this child was still alive at the latest hour of the morning of October 5. After that, I cannot be sure of the viability of charts done for random days or times. Both rulers are in angular signs but they are in succeedant houses so the time element comes out to be months rather than days. It will be about 2 months before there is some serious, valuable information about this baby. And then it will be another 4 months before the child is found. This is according to tradtional readings for times as read by degrees. Whether the child is found dead or alive in 6 months I do not know. If other sightings are reported for the coming days or months then I will do charts for them as well to see what has transpired. Right now, all we can do is wait and see.

As my usual parting effort, I will make an attempt to describe this man who took the baby. Uranus in Aries is a criminal marker, someone who lives as an outlaw, and is a common marker for theives and the places where they hide their stolen goods. Here it is in the eighth house, a traditional marker for sleazy, crumby people who live a life of crime. This is often the pickpocket, the kidnapper, the molester. This person usually has a criminal record, which I am sure this man does because Uranus is disposed of by Mars in Leo in the twelfth, the twelfh house being the traditional descriptor for prisons and places of confinement. Mars also rules the ninth house in this chart which is a marker for law enforcement. I would feel safe in guessing he had been arrested at some time in the past and maybe has a prison record. Uranus in Aries traditionally describes someone who is fairly tall and thin. This would not a short fat guy for sure. There is color in the skin, either darker than the norm for the race or florid, flushed skin that makes the face look red. There is going to be dark eyes. The hair may be dark with reddish highlights, auburn, copper, almost any shade of red and even flaming red is possible. But even very dark hair has a reddish aura. This man is very original and eccentric. He lives outside the box and prides himself on being sort of a McGyver type. He is able to make lemonade out of lemons and to find new, inventive ways of solving his problems. He is clever and unique but can also be very hard to understand. His personality and personal doings seem cryptic to everyone who lives a normal life. This man has mechanical ability and has a gift for understanding electronics. He may have worked in the past at a job where he fixed things. He is good with computers. He may have a history of stealing electronics or computers. He may use a computer to commit his crimes. There is a bad temper which can become violent all of a sudden, unexpectedly. He is totally unpredictable and can be rash in action. He can be blunt and inconsiderate and is known for radical speech, saying outrageous things. He is untrustworthy and may have freinds but they will also be radicals and criminals. This man is probably not married.

Susan Cox Powell

Woman Disappears While Husband is Camping

From Wikipedia:

At first, her entire family – husband Joshua Powell and two small children ages 4 and 2 – were initially reported missing by family members.

Subsequently her husband returned on December 7 with the two children claiming to have been on a camping trip, having left his wife at the home in the early hours of December 7. Police and neighbors have since labeled her disappearance "suspicious" and are in the process of investigating.

West Valley City Police Captain Tom McLachlan said on December 10 that there is no indication of where 28-year-old Susan Cox Powell might be, and that "she has not contacted us or anyone else we know about". Powell failed to show up at her job at Wells Fargo Financial on December 7. Her purse, cell phone, and car all were left behind at her home in West Valley City, a suburb of Salt Lake City. Police have interviewed Joshua Powell and their 4-year-old son, but have not yet released any details.

The father of Susan Cox Powell has asked people to stop focusing on her husband Joshua. "I don't see him as capable of harming her," said Charles Cox, who flew in from his home in Washington State to assist in finding his daughter.

McLachlan told the media that authorities plan to re-question Joshua Powell. Police have also subpoenaed all footage and interviews, aired and unaired, of Joshua Powell from local television stations. The police currently consider Joshua Powell to be a person of interest in the investigation. Joshua Powell has retained an attorney in connection with the investigation.

On December 28, 2009, the search warrants in Susan Cox Powell's case were sealed by a judge.

Joshua Powell has moved to Puyallup, Washington, and will rent the house in Utah.

From The Examiner :

Thursday, December 3, 2009: Debbie Caldwell, Susan's friend and daycare provider, went to the Powell home for the evening. Susan had agreed to cut and dye Debbie's hair. Debbie remembers that evening being especially stressful for both Susan and herself. Click here to read an account of what transpired.

Saturday, December 5, 2009: The Powell family attended a church Christmas breakfast from about 9 a.m. to noon. Susan then went to work and JoVonna Owings, a friend of Susan's, took care of the children while Susan worked.

Later that evening, around 7 p.m., JoVonna's son went to the Powell home to care for their two young children, Charlie, 4 at the time, and Braden, 2 at the time, while their parents attended Josh's company Christmas party. Josh and Susan returned home at about 10 p.m.

Sunday, December 6, 2009: The last day friends and family saw Susan. Timeline (times are approximate):

* 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.: Stake conference at the Hunter-36 Ward/Stake Building at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints
* Noon: Susan walked home from church with her two boys
* Approx. 2:15 p.m.: Susan called JoVonna asking her to come help untangle yarn; Josh was making brunch, overheard the conversation, and invited JoVonna to eat with the family
* 2:30 p.m.: JoVonna arrives to the Powell home to help Susan untangle yarn
* For the next hour-and-a-half to two hours, Susan and JoVonna work on untangling yard; boys play, Josh continues cooking brunch
* 4 or 4:30 p.m.: Josh served a late brunch; he served everyone individually rather than buffet-style
* 5 or 5:30 p.m.: Susan went to take a nap; JoVonna saw Josh take the boys out to the garage; Josh told her he was taking them sledding - NOTE: According to JoVonna, Susan was wearing a dark shirt with loose, black pants when she last saw her
* Before JoVonna left, she told Josh she could bring the yarn back that evening
* Josh declined her offer stating Susan wouldn't get a chance to work on it until her next days off
* 8 or 8:30 p.m.: JoVonna states neighbor said they saw Josh come home
* 11:45 p.m.: It was reported a car alarm went off for about 2 minutes at the Powell home; police were not called
* Midnight: Josh claims Susan went to bed
* 12:30 a.m.: Josh claims he took the boys on an impromptu camping trip to the West Utah Desert during a snowstorm and subfreezing weather

This timeline continues at the site at the above link and continues hour by hour for the days following her disappearance.


I apologize for not getting this chart up faster but I was having a really hard time with this case. It took me weeks of working the charts, going over and over each one time and again and then even starting over when I was finished with the first analysis. The reason became clear to me over the course of my work. I did not have a viable time line that worked with what really happened here. I had started out using the time when Josh returned home at 8:30pm. When the charts seemed to be a bit crazy right off the bat I ended up chasing some red herrings. And then I tried moving the charts up and starting at the time the car alarm was heard. That didn't work either. The charts were just producing a lot of stuff that either didn't fit the facts or just seemed to be out of place. For instance, the charts for 8:30pm looked as if Josh walked in the door in a fit of rage. It looked like he attacked his wife almost immediately. I had no way of knowing if this fit the facts but it certainly moved things forward more quickly than the timeline did. When was Susan last seen alive? And when can we say she died? Or if she died? These were questions I was getting nowhere with way too fast. I was stumped. I am still stumped about a few things here and I will present them to you and let you decide what is going on for yourself.

I went back to the drawing board four times and each time read over the accounts again. I suddenly realized that the time when Susan was last seen to be alive by a viable witness other than her husband was at 5:30 pm that afternoon when their guests left after the brunch. She was supposedly taking a nap at that time and her husband was leaving to take the children sledding. Josh was seen to leave with the kids at the same time that her friend said goodbye, leaving Susan to take a nap alone. The friend is precise about the time and all the details, including what Susan was wearing. Josh did leave the home, it seems, this is supported by eyewitnesses who saw him return with the children at 8:30 that evening. So the real time last seen was at 5:30 that afternoon. Did this change things? Did this give a different reading? I will say yes it did. In fact, starting at the earlier hour is why I was able to finally finish an analysis for this case as the charts actually started to make sense. I will show you want I discovered here and I think everyone will be surprised. I will also show you where I am stumped and let you dope it out from there.

In the chart for 5 pm we see that the seventh house ruler, Jupiter, is in the tenth house. This shows her husband (Josh) in his home. Jupiter is with Neptune, which rules the eleventh, showing there to be friends of his present. Jupiter is disposed of by Uranus in the eleventh house, as well. The eleventh house also shows siblings and children. There is no doubt that Josh is in the home with friends and family at this hour. Mercury rules the first house and is placed in the seventh, showing us Susan with her husband and, at the least, present. Mercury is conjoined Pluto in Capricorn and both planets are disposed of by Saturn in the fifth. She is a bit of a party pooper. She is concerned with the kids and is not really in the mood for levity. She may have appeared to be down or unhappy. The Moon opposes Jupiter on the midheaven / nadir axis showing me that they (Susan and her husband) were not getting along. There was a disagreement floating around. An argument in the offing, perhaps. Especially when you notice that the Moon is conjoined Mars and Mercury is with Pluto. She is definitely upset about something.

In the chart for 5:15 pm notice that the seventh house ruler, Jupiter, has left the tenth house for the ninth. This shows us Josh (the partner) going to the garage (the ninth is the third from the seventh and the seventh from the third) where his car is. This is his car as shown by the ninth house being the seventh from the third. Notice that the Moon is in the third house also with Mars, the co ruler of the fifth house. This looks a lot like Susan and the kids. And it looks like they are getting into the car. All reports given do not have Susan going along on the sledding trip and the neighbors who saw Josh return later did not report seeing her in the car. So what happened here? Did she go along and not come back? Mercury rules the first house and is the marker for the subject, along with the Moon, and it is conjoined Pluto in the seventh house. This looks like she is with her husband (partner), doesn't it? Doesn't it look like they are together. Her marker, the Moon, in the third house and his marker, Jupiter, in the ninth, showing them to be in the area of the car and the garage. They have not left yet but they are most certainly together, according to these charts. So this was a stumper for me. This did not fit reported facts.

And then I move the charts forward an hour. The reports have Josh and the kids leaving sometime between 5 and 5:30 pm so I assume they should be gone by 6:15 pm. Reports have them returning at 8:30 pm. But take a look at this chart. Cancer has taken over the first house which makes the Moon her double marker. It is in the third house! She is in that car. This does not jibe with reports but this is what the charts are saying. Also, please note, that the kids are not seen in the car with her at this time. Also, the seventh house ruler, Saturn, is in the fourth house in the sign Libra. Is her husband in the house while she is in the car? Because I have not seen him in that car yet I do not think they have left that house. No one has reported actually seeing them leave. They report seeing him return much later but no one actually saw anyone leave. This creates a huge dark hole in the facts that I just can't reconcile with these charts. But this is what the chart says. She is in the car, he is in the house and they have not left yet. Now, she could possibly be doing something with the car like cleaning or straightening it out, or getting it ready for the kids (adjusting car seats or the like). He could be in the house preparing for the trip. But they have not left yet and she is not napping so this is where we are at 6:15.

Josh (her partner) does not get into that car until 8 pm. You can see that in the chart for that hour the seventh house ruler, Saturn, has finally entered the third house. Saturn is disposed of by Venus in the fifth so he is doing this for the kids. The kids are going. But notice that the first house ruler, the Moon, which is Susan's marker, is in the second house with Mars. Mars rules the tenth house cusp and the fifth house cusp. So she is occupied with the belongings of her children, probably in the home (tenth house). These are her belongings, too, (second house) but she is upset about something involving these belongings (Mars). This appears to be a big problem for her at this time (both planets rule angular houses) but does not seem to involve her husband, who appears to have finally left to go sledding (fifth house). Notice that her marker, the Moon, and Mars are both disposed of by the Sun, which is in the fifth house near Venus. I think there might have been something the kids needed to bring that could not be found or was broken or something. But it did cause them to leave later than they had planned.

Discuss This Case At My Forum

Notice that in the chart for 8 pm, the seventh house ruler is in the third house, showing the subject in a car. Then at 8:30 pm, the seventh house ruler becomes Uranus and it is in the ninth, showing us the subject in the garage again. This tells us the whereabouts and activities of the partner, or husband. But if you look at the chart for 7:30 pm and 8:00 pm you will see that the tenth house angle has been taken over by Aries. Mars now rules an angle from the first house where it conjoins the Moon. The Moon is Susan's double marker. This very much looks as if her husband were leaving the home in his car at this time but someone else was entering the scene simultaneously. Since Mars rules the tenth this is a paternal figure, a male figure, that I, at first, thought must be her husband. At that point in my analysis, I could not make these findings work together. Credible witnesses saw him return at 8:30 pm so he could not have been in the house at 8 pm. The charts clearly show him leaving at 8 pm, in fact. So who is this person if not the father of the children? I am thinking this is a father in law. I am thinking this is either her father or her husband's father. This is who came to the home right when Josh was leaving. And I am pretty sure her husband knew that this person was coming because the node is at the seventh cusp. This may well have been planned in advance.

Because I am thinking that chaos has just arrived I am going to be very careful with my analysis from this point forward. Where I find myself stumped or unsure I will tell you and let you figure it out for yourself. But this whole scenario looks really hinky from this time forward. In the chart for 8:10 pm you can see that Mars is with the Moon in the second and both planets are disposed of by the Sun in the fifth house. This does look like the father or father in law has come around to see the kids. But when you look at the chart you see that the fifth house ruler, Pluto, is with Mercury, the traditional marker for kids in the sixth house and that both planets are disposed of by Saturn, the seventh house ruler, in the third. They are not there; they are with their father in the car. But there is one more marker here that I think cannot be overlooked. The Sun is with Venus, the fourth house ruler, and they are both in Sagittarius, disposed of by Jupiter in the eighth house. Jupiter is closely aligned with Neptune. There is a hidden agenda here and it looks like a romantic or sexual one. This does not look like an innocent attempt to visit with the kids, does it? I am thinking an excuse was made, to visit the kids perhaps, when the real intent was a romantic interest in Susan. I realize that since the first reports for this case were made a lot of other information has come to light. One of the recent accusations to appear has been towards Josh's father, who was said to have had designs on Susan. They are even now saying that he has been accused of sexual harassment in the matter. This chart does give some credence to the idea that he might have had a thing for Susan Powell.

I believe the chart for 8:20 pm shows an attack on Susan. Mars moves into the first house which is a traditional marker for a physical attack on the body of the subject. Mars is disposed of by the Sun, as already noted, in the fifth house. The Sun is with Venus and both are disposed of by Jupiter in the eighth, a marker for sex or sexual contact. Jupiter is near Neptune, showing a hidden or secret agenda. The Moon is dexter from a trine aspect with the Sun, showing that Susan has been nice to this man and has been tolerant. The sign Leo hints at flattery and a liking for attention; she may have tolerated his interest in her because she was flattered by it. Both rulers, his and hers, are disposed of by the Sun, showing the nature of their relationship. The Sun is in the fifth house, which can describe a romance but remember it can also describe children. I am not sure which effect had meaning for Susan; perhaps they both did?

Mars, his ruler, is in 18 degrees of Leo and is only several degrees away from an exact opposition to Jupiter. Mars opposing Jupiter is a traditional marker for excess; a tendency to overdo it is a common interpretation. The Sun is in trine aspect to both Mars and the Moon so is this relationship consensual? Did Susan go along with it? Or does this just mean that their meeting on this day proved to be pleasant? It's hard to say. But the charts for 8:30 PM clearly show her husband coming back home. Saturn in the third moves from the rulership of the seventh with Uranus taking over the seventh cusp from the ninth. He comes back in the car and ends up parked in the garage. The charts are very clear on this one point so there is no doubt about the report from the neighbor. The charts bear this out clearly and this salient point is one indicator that these charts are viable; they are reflecting the facts.

At the 8:30 hour, both Mars and the Moon are in the first house. This aspect, disposed of by the Sun, which is now the first house ruler, and disposed of by Jupiter now in the seventh house, looks like a sexual assault. The seventh house ruler, Uranus, is now disposed of by Neptune in the eighth, which tells me that her husband would keep this quiet; he would keep the family secret. He knew about the sexual assault on this day and knew about any other activity that had happened in the past and he was in collusion with keeping the secret. Neptune in the eighth indicates that he may have had sexual indiscretions he was hiding, as well. Neptune and Uranus are in mutual reception which underscores this fact; Neptune rules the ninth, which is the usual marker for blood relations of the partner (being the third from the seventh) so this was his father and that alone would be good reason to keep quiet.

In the chart for 8:30 pm, we clearly see her husband coming home. The fifth house ruler, Jupiter, is in the seventh, showing the kids to be with their father (Susan's partner). As well, Jupiter is disposed of by Uranus so the kids are doing what daddy tells them. Mercury, the traditional marker for children, is in the sixth house, disposed of by Saturn in the third. I think he is having them stay in the car. Saturn indicates confinement so they may be strapped into car seats or the doors to the car may just be locked. But they are confined in the car, according to these charts. The sixth house is often a marker for confinement and so is Saturn. So let's just say that this is something he might have done. But it doesn't last long because the chart for 9 pm shows Mercury entering the fifth house with Jupiter, the fifth house ruler, conjoined Neptune in the seventh house. The children are taken to their bedroom and the entire event is kept secret (Neptune). Notice how the Moon and Mars are disposed of by the Sun which is in the fifth house conjoined Venus while Mercury and Pluto enter the fifth house also. You would think the kids would be right there with Susan and the father in law. But you must also take note of the fact that Mercury and Pluto are in Capricorn while Venus and the Sun are in Sagittarius. While both the kids and their mother are in bedrooms (fifth house) they are different bedrooms, described by different signs. From this you can ascertain that the kids are in their own room (Capricorn disposed of by Saturn in the third) and Susan and her father in law are in her bedroom, the one she shares with her husband (Venus and the Sun are disposed of by Jupiter in the seventh).

In the chart for 9 pm the one outstanding aspect becomes Uranus, the seventh house ruler, moving into the eighth house. This is a really harsh reflection on her husband's character, making him look rather depraved. This placement in most charts describes a criminal nature, one without morals who lives outside the law. We know this is not the case in general for this man but I would say it does show that, during the event in question, this man's morals left quite a bit to be desired. Again, this placement combined with the secretive placements mentioned earlier, show something hinky going on with this man and his wife. There is some degree of sexual misconduct but I am not sure what kind. I will leave this to my readers to figure out from their own analysis.

What I am most concerned about is what happened to Susan, if she is dead or alive and where she is now or where we can find her body. In the chart for 10 pm I can see the death pattern forming and I am pretty sure at this point that she is dead. Looking at the chart for 10:30 pm, I see that her marker, the Moon, has moved into the twelfth house along with Mars, which now co rules the fourth. The first house ruler is the Sun and it has moved into the fourth with the tenth house ruler, Venus. The seventh house ruler is in the eighth disposed of by Neptune in the sixth. She is going to die very soon here and her husband and her father in law are there. In fact, the tenth house ruler, Venus is right with the Sun as it moves through the fourth house. Mars and the Moon moving into the twelfth describe violent death. Moon in Leo in the twelfth points to heart failure or heart attack or a breaking of bones in the back. With Mars, there is some sort of assault involved. But there are other markers that point at drugging or poisoning. The eight house ruler is Neptune, which describes drugs, and it is in the sixth house of sickness. The sixth house shows confinement, too. Sun in Sagittarius in the fourth house shows a possible shooting with a gun. Sagittarius often describes ammunition and weapons, especially bullets but also knives. Pluto in the fifth always describes rape for me. The twelfth house ruler, the Moon, at the first house cusp, can show suffocation, drowning, smothering.

Please also note the fixed stars in this chart. Venus, which rules the tenth house and marks the father in law, is conjoined to Kelb Alrai, which indicates poisoning. The Sun, which rules the first house in the death chart, is conjoined Dschubba, a fixed star that describes murder. The Sun is also conjoined Sabik, a marker for perversity. And the Sun is also close to Ras Algethi, which means a devious plot was involved. The Sun is highly afflicted by evil fixed stars and the Sun is Susan's marker in the death chart. You have to also consider that there are other aspects to the Sun, as well, such as an opposition from Hoedus, a fixed star in Gemini that often describes lust, rape and lascivious behavior. I think lust describes very clearly what they have since revealed about her father in law. Bellatrix, another fixed star in Gemini that describes obsessive lust and rape, is also opposed to Susan's marker. As well, there is a cluster of evil fixed stars gathered in the first house not far from the Moon-Mars conjunction. The closest one in sinister aspect to the Moon is Alfard, a fixed star meaning death by asphyxiation or strangulation. Alfard can also mean death by drowning. Another serious marker is the square from Caput Algol in the tenth house to the Moon in the first. I have found Caput Algol to the be the most serious and most common marker in cases of violent murder and especially in cases that become famous. It was prominent in the Gainseville murders, in Ted Bundy's murders and in many others that became notorious. This case has received a lot of attention, as well, probably because Algol is in the tenth house. The Moon is sinister to the square in this chart so the influence is gaining in strength. All of these evil fixed stars seem to be conspiring against our subject and I have no doubt, after seeing these charts, that Susan is dead and that she died on December 6, 2009.

There is an awful lot of back and forth in all the charts for this case. During the next few hours I see Josh in the garage, working on something electronic. I see his father with his wife. I see her body in the house, apparently dead. But I cannot get a bead on the rest of this story as it relates to what has been reported. This leads me to beleive that almost every part of the story is a lie, with the exception of sighting of Susan or Josh by neighbors or friends. The story that he took the kids camping at midnight is just not supported by the charts. The story that she went to bed alone at midnight is also not supported. In fact, everything looks different in these charts than I expected based on what was reported. The timeline past the visit from friends on the afternoon of the sixth is cloudy and unrealiable. The last known sighting of Susan being alive by anyone other than her husband was at 5 pm that afternoon when her friends left the brunch. No one ever reported seeing the father in law on the property or coming and going from the property but then again no one but Josh has ever claimed to see them leaving for the camping trip. Did they actually go camping? And, if not, what on earth did go on that night? All of this seem murky and deliberately misleading. The first chart I could pin down showing anyone leaving that house was for 2 am in the morning of the 7th. And in this chart it is not Josh leaving but his father and he has got Susan in the car.

I know that in every case of a missing person the first and foremost most urgent matter is finding that person. This goes for recent cases where they hope to recover the subject alive and for stone cold cases where they wish they could find the body. I have been working hard at developing a system that helps with body location. There haven't been any until now and my system, although the only one out there, is still far from reliable. I am still putting things to the test to see if they work (throw it at the wall and see if it sticks) and haven't been able to prove anything yet. I am going to go out sometime this winter and try to locate a missing person in my own area myself and record it on video. I am hoping to work my system until it works! Anyways, in this case I am trying to figure out where Susan might be, dead or alive, today. And here at 2 am, I see her father in law taking her body off in a car.

The tenth house ruler, the Moon, marks her father in law in this chart. Her marker is the first house ruler, Venus, and it is in the third, showing her body to be in the car. Notice that the Moon is conjoined with Mars, the seventh house ruler, showing father and son together. The twelfth house ruler, Mercury, is in the third house (the car) and is the natural ruler of cars and other vehicles. There is no doubt in my mind when looking at this chart that it is saying that her body is in that car. Saturn just behind the Ascendant verifies that she is dead. Saturn is disposed of by Venus in the third, again showing us that the placement of her body is in a car. Notice how Mars and the Moon (the men) are both disposed of by the Sun in the third, which is close to Venus. This seems to be saying that they are taking her body to the woods. In fact, I would like to take another shot at figuring out exactly where that was.

The house at the point of leaving marks the northern most point from which to search. So placing the home at due north and working around it you can determine where they went. They left the house moving due south at first and then south by southeast. There is a distance of 4 degrees between the body (Saturn) and the new location (the fourth house cusp) and these placements are in cardinal signs (Capricorn and Libra) so the distance travelled is only about 4 miles away. They drove very fast, as fast as legally allowable in that area or maybe even faster if they weren't afraid of being pulled over with a body in the car. But they drove quickly (cardinal signs) only for about 4 miles (4 degrees) south by southeast. They probably turned south of their neighborhood and then at the next cross point they turned south by southeast. Again, remember, this is only a 4 mile drive.

In this chart, Mercury marks the spot. Mercury rules the twelfth house and is placed in the third in Capricorn. It is disposed of by Saturn in Libra in the twelfth. Mercury always describes small places or spaces. Capricorn describes rocky, dry ground with sparse vegetation. Pluto conjoined Mercury would describe small rocks that have been broken up by harsh weather or other activities. There may be a nuclear testing range in the area. Pluto and Mercury disposed of by Saturn indicates also that the body was altered in some manner to make it fit into something small. Mercury conjoined Pluto in Capricorn seems to indicate broken bones. Saturn in Libra in the twelfth indicates an area with very old, very tall trees. Saturn describes her actual body and since it is disposed of by Venus in Sagittarius it is my guess it was left in an outdoor area where people hunt. Bow and arrow hunting comes to mind because of Sagittarius (the archer) and Libra (things that fly through the air). Capricorn on the nadir with Mercury in Capricorn indicates there are small, hooved animals like goats, deer, muledeer, moose, sheep, elk, etc... in this area. There is no water in this area.

If there are mountains in this area the the search should start on the mountainsides. She could easily have been left up high. If there are large, tall trees in the area these should be searched as well because she might have been tossed up in the tree. She is inside something small and confining (Saturn in Libra) and I am thinking luggage or other travel baggage (Sagittarius). They may have tossed the luggage up into a very large, tall tree. She could be "hanging" from or "balancing" on a limb. You might be able to combine all the influences by searching tall trees on mountainsides. I do not get the idea from these charts that she is buried or on the ground. And there is no water in this area at all. There may be the following markers: army barracks, ammunitions storage, horse paddocks or stables, horse farms, horseback riding, horse slaughterhouses, tennis courts, archery ranges and/ or high, sloping ground that is hard to navigate. Activities going on in this are can include bow and arrow hunting, horseback riding, camping, any kind of hunting, competitive sports like soccer or basketball, mining for metals, greyhound breeding or racing, beekeeping. There may also be foxes and wild dogs. While looking on mountainsides or among tall trees, you should also look for outhouses, sawmills, lumbermills, old graveyards or cemetaries, old prisons the size of jailhouses that may no longer be used, patches of wild carrots or parsley, snowsheds or crematoriums. Any of these markers may be present in the area; always look for areas with groupings of several markers. Her body is going to be in a bushy, dark area that is hard to see into, but not buried. She will be found deep in the shadows most likely on a mountainside in a rocky area. Mine blasting or nuclear testing has gone on in the area.

One more thing I want to add to this analysis is the probability that they burned her body at some point. All of the markers are in fire signs, Leo and Sagittarius, and both are descriptors for chimneys, grills, firepits and other such places for burning things. I am pretty sure they burned her body at some point in this event. At first, I thought they burned her body in a fireplace in the home. But I realize now that this probably not possible. None the less, I still believe these charts are describing a burning and a dumping of the body somewhere in the open. This is without burial and the body is not in the water. I hope they find her soon.
