Remains of Woman Missing Since Mother’s Day 2020 Discovered

On September 27, Colorado authorities announced a significant development in the case of Suzanne Morphew, who went missing from her Chaffee County home on Mother’s Day in 2020. Her husband, Barry Morphew, had been charged with her murder the following year, but the case was dismissed as the search for her continued.

The Colorado Bureau of Investigation, as part of an unrelated investigation, discovered Suzanne’s remains in the Moffat area of Saguache County, about 90 miles south of Chaffee County. The El Paso County Coroner confirmed her identity.

The exact location and condition of the remains have not been disclosed to the public, and no new arrests have been made following this discovery. Suzanne’s family and 12th Judicial District Attorney Anne Kelly have been informed.

Chaffee County Sheriff John Spezze emphasized that while finding Suzanne’s remains is a significant development, it raises more questions than answers. He stated, “While this case has garnered attention from around the world, it has touched our community and the sheriff’s office deeply. We have never stopped our investigation and will continue to follow all leads in pursuit of justice for Suzanne.”

Barry Morphew maintains his innocence and, in May, filed a $15 million lawsuit against Chaffee County, the Colorado Bureau of Investigation, the FBI, and prosecutors, alleging violations of his civil rights.
