The Disappearance of Susan Cox Powell covers the tragic case of the Utah mum-of-two who vanished on 6 December 2009 aged just 28 and is now presumed dead, although a body has never been found.

The two-part show takes a deep look into the years running up to her disappearance, the suspects and the subsequent investigation.

Early on in the case her husband Josh Powell was named as a person of interest - who claimed that on the night she went missing he had taking their two young sons camping, despite the freezing-cold temperatures.

Police investigation found that although outwardly the eight-year marriage appeared to be happy, those close to Susan worried about Josh's controlling nature.

Josh was uncooperative with police and had reportedly asked colleagues about the best way to dispose of a body shortly before Susan was reported missing.

The case became even more complicated with police speaking to both Josh's brother Michael Powell and his dad Steven Powell - who admitted to cops he was 'infatuated' with his daughter-in-law and filmed hours of footage of her while she lived with him - in relation to the disappearance.

Tragically, more than two-years later, and after losing custody of his two sons Charles and Braden to Susan's parents, Josh killed them both before taking his own life. He always denied any involvement with his wife's disappearance.

Documentary makers, led by investigative journalist Stephanie Bauer carried out extensive interviews with those close to the case, including family members; as well as never-before-seen home-video footage and diaries.

Viewers who have seen the documentary have taken to social media to share their thoughts, with one viewer posting: "The Disappearance of Susan Cox Powell is one of the most disturbing crime documentaries I've seen. If you're into crime documentaries I suggest you watch it."

A second wrote: "Anyone who loves a crime documentary should watch The Disappearance of Susan Cox Powell. Bizarre, frustrating and heartbreaking all in one. Very good but I was in tears. Some very evil people on this planet."

While a third added: "The Disappearance of Susan Cox Powell on Sky Crime actually blew my mind, one of the best cold case series I've ever watched."

The Disappearance of Susan Cox Powell is available now on Sky Crime and NowTV.
