WEST VALLEY CITY (ABC 4 Utah) – The haunting words of Susan Cox Powell as if beyond the grave are now coming out. ABC 4 Utah has discovered West Valley City police had video of Susan telling the camera how she wanted to protect her family in case something bad happened.

What she says may give you chills.

"This is me July 29th, 2008," said Susan Cox Powell, in a home video.

It's as if Susan Cox Powell is speaking from beyond the grave.

"…covering all my bases making sure that if something happens to me or my family, or all of us, that our assets are documented," she said.

Before she disappeared in December 2009, Susan went throughout her West Valley home and documented all of her and her family's belongings, just in case.

"And I had necklaces too, wherever those are (inaudible) got in a rage, as you can see, and broke this, there's studs and pearls and opals in there, broke those and threw all my DVDs and made a mess because he was angry at me about a year or two back," said Susan.

Susan was so afraid of what her husband Josh Powell might do, she wrote a secret will and testament dated just one month earlier, and kept it in a safety deposit box, with explicit instructions Josh was not allowed to see it.

Inside she writes:

"For mine and my children's safety I feel the need to have a paper trail at work which would not be accessible to my husband," she wrote. "I want it documented somewhere that there is extreme turmoil in our marriage."

She said Josh threatened her that if they got a divorce:

Quote: "There will be no lawyers, only a mediator, and I ruin will you," Susan said Josh told her. "You (Susan) would be destroyed and your life would be over and the boys will not grow up with a mom and a dad."

That may explain why Susan next wrote:

"I want my marriage to work out," she wrote.

But Susan describes how nothing she tried seemed to work.

"He doesn't want to do counseling and says if I were to buy groceries for cheap sale prices... that he would be happy with this well purchased bargain deal food in his stomach would make him happy and our marital problems would be solved," wrote Susan.

And as if believing her efforts would fail, she finishes the letter saying:

"If I die, it may not be an accident, even if it looks like one," she wrote.

Then when she appears to run out of room, she goes back to the first page and writes to two names that were blacked out, saying:

"I would never leave you," Susan wrote.

"Hope everything works out and we're all happy and live happily ever after as much as that's possible," Susan said in the video (rolling her eyes).
