Suzanne Morphew’s remains were found in a ‘shallow grave'

Suzanne Morphew, a Colorado mother who went missing over three years ago, was found in a remote location, far from her home.

The remains were located in Moffat, Colorado, in Saguache County. This is approximately 45 miles south of her Maysville residence. Iris Eytan, the attorney representing the Morphew family, clarified that Suzanne was not found near her home or the neighboring town.

Instead, she was discovered in a desert field covered with sagebrush and natural grasses.

Unexpected discovery during another search

Interestingly, officials from Saguache County stumbled upon Suzanne's remains while they were searching for another missing woman, Edna Quintana.

After the discovery, a coroner confirmed the identity of the remains as Suzanne's.

Suzanne, who was 49 at the time of her disappearance, had left her home for a bike ride. Her husband, Barry Morphew, informed the authorities about this. On the day she vanished in 2020, her bicycle was found in a ravine near their Maysville home.

Legal complications and accusations

Barry Morphew faced accusations related to his wife's disappearance. He was charged with murder and tampering with evidence in 2021. However, these charges were dropped a year later, with prosecutors stating they needed more time to locate Suzanne's body.

This decision came after allegations of procedural violations against the 11th Judicial District Attorney, Linda Stanley.

In response to the dropped charges, Barry's legal team filed a $15 million lawsuit against the prosecutors and investigators. They claimed that his constitutional rights had been violated.

Barry had always maintained his innocence, suggesting that the investigators were trying to pin the blame on him, Fox News reported.

Intense scrutiny on Barry Morphew

Iris Eytan highlighted the immense scrutiny Barry underwent after Suzanne's disappearance. He was closely monitored, with law enforcement cameras placed near his home and tracking devices on his car.

Despite this, no evidence was found to suggest Barry's involvement in any suspicious activities south of his home or in Saguache County.

DNA evidence played a crucial role in the investigation. While no human remains or blood were found near the Morphew residence or their vehicles, DNA was discovered on Suzanne's glovebox.

This DNA matched profiles from sexual assault cases in other states but did not match Barry's.

Other mysteries in Saguache County

Eytan pointed out that Suzanne's case wasn't an isolated incident. Five individuals, including Suzanne, have either gone missing or been found deceased in the same area.

This raises questions about the safety and security of the region.

Text messages between Suzanne and Barry, which were unsealed in June, hinted at personal issues.

Days before her disappearance, Suzanne texted Barry, expressing her desire to end their relationship.

Community's reaction and ongoing investigation

Chaffee County Sheriff John Spezze expressed his department's dedication to the case. He emphasized that while finding Suzanne's remains was a significant step, many questions remain unanswered.

The sheriff's office is committed to pursuing justice for Suzanne and her family.

Authorities continue to seek information related to the case and urge anyone with knowledge to come forward.
