According to the Colorado Bureau of Investigation, the remains of Suzanne Morphew were found and positively identified as the Colorado missing mother who was last seen more than three years ago.
Morphew (49), vanished while riding a bicycle in Colorado, on Mother’s Day 2020.
On Wednesday, the CBI announced that Morphew was found dead in Saguache County in the southwest part of the state.
John Spezze, Sheriff of Chaffee County said that while this case has attracted attention around the globe, it has deeply affected our community. “We have never stopped, and we will not stop our investigation.”
No press conference has been scheduled as of yet, according to officials.
Spezze stated that “although locating Suzanne’s remains is an important component of this investigation and for her family, there are many more questions than we have answers. It would be a disservice if a press conference were held at this time.”
According to the CBI, no arrests have taken place.
Nancy Grace, the host of Fox Nation’s “Crime Stories”, told Fox News Digital: “I believed that this day would arrive. I share the deep sadness and anger of many. “There is only one thing you can do… seek justice for Suzanne.”
The initial accusation was that Barry Morphew killed his wife when she decided to leave him. However, in April 2022 the prosecution asked for a judge’s dismissal of all murder charges.
The text messages that Suzanne sent in June indicate she had affairs with Barry while they were still together.
In a March 7, 2020 text message to Jeff Libler, described by the Denver Gazette as a high school flame, Suzanne wrote: “Nobody loves you…like the way I do. I crave time with you. I crave the feeling I get when we connect. Physically or emotionally. You’re my guy. Always.”
Barry’s lawyer, Iris Eytan said that Barry “didn’t know” at the time about Suzanne’s two-year affair with Libler. She claims that Libler has not been “fully investigated by law enforcement.”
In a text sent to Barry on April 24, 2020, Suzanne also believed that her husband had an affair.
She said over text: “Oh, I am sure that your mistress is making you happy so you can tell me you love me and bully me while you are with me… yeah, that’s true love.”
Suzanne texted Barry in March 2020 to say that they should “figure out this civilly.”
Morphew’s lawyers filed a lawsuit on May 2 against the prosecutors, arguing that “he suffered the indignity” of being wrongfully jailed and charged for a crime that he had not committed.
In a Fox 31 Denver statement, 11th Judicial District attorney Linda Stanley said that “potentially filing a complaint is not the same as the attorney engaging any misconduct.” Anyone can file a report against a lawyer at the Office of Attorney Regulation Counsel.
