Colorado Authorities Open Tip Line For Suzanne Morphew Case

MIAMI - FEBRUARY 02: A rotary phone sits on desk of the newly opened Black Police Precinct and Courthouse Museum February 3, 2009 in Miami, Florida. The museum is located in the only known structure in the nation that was designed, devoted to and operated as a separate station house and municipal court for African-Americans. In September 1944, the first black patrolmen were sworn in as emergency policemen to enforce the law in what was then called the "Central Negro District." The precinct building opened in May 1950 to provide a station house for the black policemen and a courtroom for black judges in which to adjudicate black defendants. The building operated from 1950 until its closing in 1963. (Photo by Joe Raedle/Getty Images)

The Colorado Bureau of Investigation has launched a tip line for information on the disappearance of Suzanne Morphew.


49-year old Suzanne Morphew was first reported missing on Mother’s Day in 2020 after she left home to go on a bike ride and never returned.

Authorities confirmed her remains were found during a search in Saguache County in late September, over three years since the 49-year old mother’s disappearance. 

Following their discovery, authorities conducted a “comprehensive search” throughout the area, however, they did disclose that there was no new information regarding the case. 

The area is reportedly known to locals as the “Boneyard.”

Authorities discovered Morphew’s remains while they were searching for two other missing people. 

She left behind two daughters and her husband, Barry Morphew, who was arrested and charged with her disappearance and presumed death. 

Barry said he was working in Broomfield, Colorado, during his wife’s disappearance. Unsealed text messages also revealed that the two were both having an affair and that Suzanne had broken it off with Barry just a few days before she vanished. 

Barry was then charged with Suzanne’s murder in 2021, along with tampering with physical evidence and “attempting to influence a public servant.”

A judge dismissed Morphew’s charges without prejudice a year later, after the defense received an internal affairs document about the CBI’s agent in charge. In it, he had claimed that Morphew’s arrest was “premature.”

Morphew’s legal team later filed a $15 million lawsuit alleging that prosecutors and investigators violated his constitutional rights.

Barry and Suzanne’s two daughters maintained that their father was innocent.

During a 2022 interview with ABC News, Mallory Morphew said that their father’s arrest was an emotional rollercoaster.

“We just know our dad better than anyone else,” Mallory said. “We just know he wasn’t involved in our mom’s disappearance.”

No further arrests have been made in the case and authorities hope to gather more information on Suzanne’s disappearance through the tip line.
