More than three years after her disappearance, law enforcement officials in Colorado say the remains of missing mother-of-two, Suzanne Morphew, have been found.
According to CBS News, the Colorado Bureau of Investigation said the remains were discovered on September 22, “in the area of Moffat in Saguache County.” On Wednesday, the El Paso County Coroner positively identified the remains as Morphew.
“While this case has garnered attention from around the world, it has touched our community and the sheriff’s office deeply,” Chaffee County Sheriff John Spezze said, following the discovery. “We have never stopped our investigation and will continue to follow all leads in pursuit of justice for Suzanne.”
“Although locating Suzanne’s remains is a critical component of this investigation, and for her family, we are left with many more questions than answers, and it would be a disservice to conduct a news conference at this time.”
As CrimeOnline previously reported, Suzanne Morphew disappeared on Mother’s Day 2020, after heading out for a bike ride in Chaffee County, according to what her husband, Barry Morphew, said. She never returned home.
Her bicycle was discovered down a steep ravine at Chaffee County Road 225. Investigators said the bike appeared undamaged with no signs of blood. After her disappearance, Barry Morphew claimed Suzanne had likely been abducted.
Friends, however, told investigators that the pair had been arguing about finances, and Suzanne may have possibly had a boyfriend. On the day before her disappearance, Suzanne Morphew had “59 communications” exchanges with a man who was allegedly her boyfriend, CBS Colorado reports.
Barry Morphew was arrested and charged with his wife’s murder, but the charges were dropped in 2022.
Barry Morphew’s defense attorney, Iris Eytan, previously stated Barry was unaware of Suzanne’s reported 2-year affair with and that the alleged boyfriend has not been fully probed by investigators.
So far, there have been no additional arrests in the case. The investigation remains open and tipsters are urged to contact the CBI tipline for the case at (719) 312-7530.
“I believed this day would come. Like many, I feel deep sorrow and at the same time, deep anger. There is only one thing to do…seek justice for Suzanne,” CrimeOnline’s Nancy Grace told Fox News Digital.
