Notably, the biggest case in my career was the high-profile investigation involving the missing Utah mother, Susan Powell. It crossed my mind early in my career; what would it be like to be a part of a high-profile case. Exciting, challenging, maybe fun? The reason it crossed my mind was due to all the publicity coming from the 1995 O.J. Simpson investigation. I had just graduated the police academy and was beginning my career in law enforcement. As that case continued on, we all saw how it impacted the community, the police department, the detectives and I was like, ummm, maybe not so much! Cases of this caliber can make or break a detective's career and obviously impact their lives in one fashion or another for the rest of their lives. I clearly remember a supervisor telling me, "Ellis, you'll never escape this case, it will forever be a part of who you are and you'll always be answering to it". I clearly didn't work it alone, there was a lot of fine police officers and detectives that worked this case and poured their hearts and soles into the investigation. I will be forever grateful for their efforts and dedication!
