Suzanne Morphew’s Remains Found Three Years After Disappearance

Suzanne Morphew’s Remains Found Three Years After Disappearance

More than three years after Colorado mom Suzanne Morphew vanished on Mother’s Day in 2020, investigators have located her remains. The identification of the remains, found in Moffat, Saguache County, was confirmed by the El Paso County Coroner.

Suzanne’s mysterious disappearance gained nationwide attention, featuring on CBS News’ “48 Hours.” The discovery of her bicycle in a ravine off Chaffee County Road 225 deepened the mystery, particularly given the lack of signs of a crash or blood at the scene.

Barry Morphew, Suzanne’s husband, was a focal point of the investigation, facing charges of her murder. Barry had previously alleged that she might have been abducted. While evidence suggested tension between the couple — including a significant text from Suzanne indicating her intent to end their relationship — Barry maintained his innocence.

He even pursued legal action earlier this year, suing for $15 million, asserting wrongful charges regarding Suzanne’s then-presumed death. This lawsuit named several entities, including Chaffee County and agencies involved in the investigation.

However, the case against Barry encountered numerous complications. It was moved from Chaffee County to Fremont County due to concerns about fair trial prospects. The defense later called for dismissal based on internal comments from a Colorado Bureau of Investigation agent, who felt Barry’s arrest had been premature. By April 2022, a judge dismissed the case against Barry, albeit “without prejudice,” leaving the door open for future charges.

As the news of the discovery of Suzanne’s remains broke, Chaffee County Sheriff John Spezze expressed the community’s deep involvement: “We have never stopped our investigation and will continue to follow all leads in pursuit of justice for Suzanne.” Despite this significant breakthrough, many questions remain, with Spezze urging the public to share any pertinent information.
