SALT LAKE CITY —

The latest batch of documents released in the Susan Powell case show investigators seeking permission to mount wiretaps on her husband Josh Powell's phone after she vanished in December 2009.

Those were among the new details to emerge in hundreds of pages of search warrants released Friday that were part of the investigation into the West Valley City woman's disappearance.

The warrants add to the thousands of documents that became public Monday when police ended their investigation.

The records released earlier show that officials believe Josh Powell likely killed his wife, and that his brother, Michael Powell, helped dispose of the body. But authorities felt they didn't have enough evidence to prove that in court. Both men committed suicide.

The Salt Lake Tribune reports ( http://bitly.com/10ZiiiP) that among the warrants released Friday, one document sought permission to wiretap phones belonging to Powell and his father, believing they would discuss their alleged crimes on the phone.
