Remains of Missing Colorado Woman Suzanne Morphew Discovered in Saguache County

42

The mystery surrounding the disappearance of a Colorado woman, Suzanne Morphew, who went missing on Mother’s Day 2020 while indulging in her routine bike ride, has found some closure; her remains have recently been discovered in Saguache County. This was confirmed by the revered Colorado Bureau of Investigation.

Morphew, 49, intriguingly disappeared in the vicinity of County Road 225 and West Highway 50 near the quaint town of Maysville, Colorado. This newly uncovered information offers scant solace for her grief-stricken family as they grapple with the devastating soundtrack of their impressions of her last ride. The remains were discovered approximately 50 miles south of the area from where Morphew was reported missing.

The remains of Morphew came forth during an unrelated investigation which had brought the investigators to the Moffat area of Saguache County, adding an unintended layer to the affairs.

The responsibility of identifying the remains fell upon the El Paso County coroner, who on Wednesday, in a sombre confirmation, announced that the remains were, in fact, those of Suzanne Morphew.

In 2021, the embattled husband of Morphew, Barry, found himself on the receiving end of a first-degree murder charge concerning his wife’s obscure disappearance. Nevertheless, in April 2022, the case, to the surprise of many, was dismissed, as prosecutors moved to retract the charges, and investigators continued their relentless search for Morphew. The ruling indicated that the prosecutors were not barred from pursuing the same charges in the future.

On receiving the tragic news, the husband and daughters were said to be ‘struggling with immense shock and grief,’ as per Barry Morphew’s attorney, Iris Eytan. She added that Barry and the children had eternally held onto a flicker of hope that Suzanne would unexpectedly walk back into their lives. The family had anchored their hopes onto this belief, which was unfortunately shattered.

In the wake of underlining her client’s innocence since day one, Eytan criticized the district attorney and law enforcement’s erroneous judgement in levying the initial charge against Barry. “We hope the authorities will quickly admit their wrongful persecution of Barry, an innocent man, to treat the Morphews like the victims they are,” and put the true culprit of Suzanne Morphew’s death behind bars, Eytan said.

No arrests have been made in the wake of these recent revelations concerning Morphew’s remains, as per authorities. What lies ahead is uncertain, as the office of 11th Judicial District Attorney Linda Stanley has refrained from commenting on the potential plans for future prosecution.

“We have never stopped our investigation and will continue to follow all leads in pursuit of justice for Suzanne,” pledge Chafee County Sheriff John Spezze.

Kelly, District Attorney for the 12th Judicial District where Morphew’s remains were discovered, while expressing due condolences to the family, stated that the case was still under thorough investigation. Kelly ensured an update in the coming weeks yet was unable to share further developments until more information was readily available.
