    So Barry has a hearing tomorrow, in which his bond conditions and a few other issues are expected to be discussed.

    I have it on excellent authority that the hearing will NOT be broadcast on WebEx, but there will be limited seating in the courtroom.

    Thank you! I didn't recall Mike stating that SD was also charged with theft. One strike.

    However, Mike was in Poland when he filmed this segment which leads me to think someone on his team wrote the script and he recited it. I looked under his video at the time I viewed it to see if there was a link to the data he was imparting and there was nothing but hashtags.

    I can't find one mention of this hearing being delayed anywhere on the www. Is it on the court's roster as being delayed?

    One of you were recently followed by Carol on Twitter. Can you tweet her or Lauren the question for verification purposes? We may have gotten a bit excited over a big fat nothing!

    Ashley Franco just told me that they'd be there, so we'll have coverage tomorrow from at least one outlet. That was my biggest concern with no WebEx.

    She says she'll be live Tweeting.

    I asked for clarity on the time, as I heard 130 but the docket says 330. She said she wasn't sure herself, but she was going to get there early if she didn't hear from the communications guy at the court.

    We're covered.

    I can't imagine Suzanne would not have had a Fitbit, Garmin or some other exercise-tracking device.

    She may even have had a "road id" (see below) with her name, address, phone number and medical information as well, in addition to the information tucked inside her helmet.

    All the more items for Barry to dispose of. Let's hope he slipped up and didn't get rid of everything.

    I'll shorten this up a bit...

    Wednesday, October 13th:
    *Hearing (Murder)-Virtual (@ 3:30pm MT) - CO – Suzanne Renee Moorman Morphew (49) (missing May 10, 2020, did not return from bike ride (supposedly), Maysville, Chaffee County, not found) - *Barry Lee Morphew (53/now 53-will be 54 in 4 days) arrested & charged (5/5/21) with 1st degree murder after deliberation, tampering with physical evidence & attempting to influence public servants. And additional charges (5/18/21) with tampering with a deceased human body & possession of a dangerous weapon (short rifle) & amended (5/18/21) to add domestic violence as sentencing enhancement. Plead not guilty. $500K Cash only bond. Bonded out on 9/20/21.
    Trial set to begin on 5/3/22 (thru 6/1/22).
    *Charged (5/13/21) with felony forgery of public records & misdemeanor elections-mail ballot offense. $1K Bond.

    Missing info, Barry’s PP loan & court info from 5/10/21 thru 8/9/21 to 8/24/21 & 9/17/21 (Prelim day 1 to 5) & info on his voter fraud from 5/13/21 to 5/27/21 reference post #478 here:
    CO - CO - Suzanne Morphew, 49, Chaffee County, 10 May 2020 #78 *ARREST*

    9/17/21 Update: Preliminary hearing Day 5: Morphew entered the courtroom. He is wearing a light grey suit & cowboy boots again. He walked in with a folder with papers. He is wearing a blue medical mask. Judge Patrick Murphy is now in the courtroom. He apologized for the delay because of the extra security screening. Same rules apply like the preliminary hearing. Sean Connelly is a new attorney for the defense & Dan Edwards is a new attorney on the State side. Judge Patrick Murphy is limiting the arguments to 20 minutes for each side. Then he will make a decision. A motion was filed yesterday by the defense. The judge hopes to conclude this hearing by 5p.m. because he also wants to rule on releasing the arrest affidavit. Attorney Edwards has taken the stand talking about Probable Cause. He will take 10 minutes & then Deputy District Attorney Jeff Lindsay will take the other 10 minutes.

    The Judge finds that the evidence is NOT strong enough against Barry to hold him without bond as he awaits trial. Judge has decided to grant Morphew bail. As the judge is discussing possible bail for Barry Morphew: "Is it possible Mr. Morphew would be convicted? Yes. Is it fairly likely he would be convicted? ... This case could go either way in front of a jury." Judge says there are 3 scenarios: 1. Morphew could have murdered her. 2. Someone else took Suzanne & killed her. 3. Suzanne left on her own. Judge says there is evidence for 1 & possibly 2. He says 3 is highly unlikely.
    State asks for a $10M cash only bond. The state believes Morphew doesn't have ties to the community anymore in Colorado. Fears for witnesses' safety. Also, believe he has $3 million since the sale of the home & business. The prosecution is now saying that Barry has received books in jail about how to live off the land, that he’s spent time in Mexico, and they think he’s a “significant danger to flee.” Morphew is a significant danger to flee, according to Deputy D.A. He must surrender all guns. They also want LE to be able to monitor Morphew's whereabouts. Judge asked if he had a criminal history: In Indiana involving assault case.
    Defense & Judge on bail:

    CO - CO - Suzanne Morphew, 49, Chaffee Co, 10 May 2020 #81 *arrest*
    The defense is asking for a $50,000 cash bond.
    for more info see posts #1282, 1289 & 1293 here:
    CO - CO - Suzanne Morphew, 49, Chaffee Co, 10 May 2020 #81 *arrest*
    Judge settles on $500k cash only. No weapons. No Contact: Moorman family, Brad Oswald, Holly Wilson, Sheila Oliver, Cassidy Cordova, Morgan Gentile, Gene & Martine Ritter (Protection orders). No written contact, no electric contact (email, text), you can't ask someone to contact them. You could be charged with a class-1 misdemeanor. EDIT: Jeff Libler family as well. Passport handed over. Can't reside anywhere but Chaffee County. Must appear at all hearing & must wear an ankle monitor (this is not GPS but will alert court if he leaves the county). The Bond can't be posted until Noon on Monday because there is no private probation here today.
    Now to the affidavit: Dru Nielsen said that the AA reads like a tabloid. They wrote this affidavit to try this case in the media & try & taint a jury pool. They don't want the AA to be released. The judge ruled that the arrest affidavit will be unsealed & posted on the Colorado Court’s website. The court has redacted information from the arrest affidavit. "I am not going to redact the affidavit further," Judge Murphy said. "The meat of this case has been disclosed. The Arrest Affidavit will be released online under cases of interest." The #Affidavit for Morphew will be posted by NOON on MONDAY.
    The defense wants to set a day for trial now for Morphew case. The state is being asked the length of trial. Deputy D.A. Lindsey says at least 4 weeks. Defense is looking at May of 2022. Trial has been set for May 3 through June 1, 2022. Morphew is entering a NOT GUITLY plea & waives speedy trial.
    Iris Eytan is asking for a gag order. Judge is not going to rule on that motion. Motion hearing 11/9/21 @ 1:30pm on discovery violations & contempt for violating the pretrial publicity order.
    9/20/21 Update: Morphew bonded out of jail. With the bond comes several stipulations: Morphew will have to wear an ankle monitor, will have to live in & largely remain in Chaffee County, will not be allowed contact with numerous people involved in the case. He will still be permitted contact with his & Suzanne’s two daughters.

    10/6/21 Update: Court was advised of the monitoring problem. Prosecutors in Morphew’s murder case asked a judge last month to set stricter terms for his pretrial release from jail because an ankle monitor he is ordered to wear doesn't work in steep terrain west of Monarch Pass where he's been living. But the monitoring system doesn't work in areas where cellular service is spotty, leaving cops in the dark on the location of Morphew, who authorities say has been living in an area with no cellular service since his release. Prosecutors want a judge to order Morphew to move to a place where the monitoring system works. In her filing, Stanley points out that Morphew currently pays rent at a residence in Salida, Colorado, which is near the Chaffee County courthouse, within reach of cellphone towers. Also the prosecution doesn't want him living in that neighborhood, as the Ritters have a no contact order against him. Prosecutors want him to live there so they can keep tabs on his location. Prosecutor Stanley asked Judge Patrick Murphy to reconsider bail in the case, potentially threatening Morphew's freedom ahead of trial unless a compromise can be reached. Hearing for murder charge on 10/13/21. Motions hearing on 11/9/21 for both cases. DA Stanley has filed a motion with the court, requesting BM be prohibited from living in or around Maysville.

    Just so everyone knows - I won't be keeping track of this case since it has nothing to do with the murder case.

    I'm sure I am circling back around to this topic, but what if Barry took the small road that runs parallel to 50, when he took that left turn on his way to Broomfield that morning. Perhaps he took that left just a few meters closer to home, rather than taking a left onto 50.

    What is that road? Any locals here that have been back there? Is it publicly accessible or a private road? Has every inch of it been thoroughly searched?

    I would imagine it's very dark and desolate back there at 4:30 am.

    If I recall his GPS did not show he took a left that morning. When LE questioned him and implied they had him on GPS turning left he told the story of chasing the Elk. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.
