WEST VALLEY CITY, Utah — A Utah mayor is defending his police department's handling of the Susan Powell case, insisting it did everything it could to resolve it.

After Friday's release of court documents linking Josh Powell to the 2009 disappearance of his wife, her family and prosecutors in Washington state questioned why he wasn't arrested for her murder before he killed himself and their two young children two months ago.

West Valley City police say they still don't have a body, and no firm answers on where and if a murder took place.
