I think IE presumes he will be charged again. And she strikes me as the type of defense lawyer that will leave no stone unturned so her advice to not to take possession of the remains made sense to me. Now whether the coroner can legally "offer" the remains to someone else in Colorado I don't know. There may be a familial "chain" i.e., the spouse, then their children, then the parents if alive etc. etc. IE hasn't filed an injunction that we know of so I assume the "state" still has possession.

Let's chat about the recent released document and what this means for Justice for Suzanne. Sarah Hempelmann will be joining me. See you all shortly.

It appears from the “family” statement commenting on the Autopsy Report that Mr. Morphew’s attorneys have access to somewhat more data than was released to the public. I’m assuming they have a complete toxicology report that showed some caffeine (not mentioned in Autopsy Report).

If one can ignore the gyroscopic blur of the spin put on the apparent caffeine detection by Mr. Morphew’s attorney’s (Proof positive the man is innocent!!), try to hold down the subsequent assertion that “Also confirmed with the autopsy report is that she put on her bike clothes. She was on a bike ride and abducted.”

What was released in the AR does not confirm, or necessarily suggest to any significant degree that she was wearing her “biking clothes”. The clothing mentioned are a bra, a “ripped dark blue/gray hooded sweatshirt labelled “Crested Butte”, a torn green Nike tank top, Yeti shorts….”

The picture below (there are others of her in this sweatshirt online) shows Suzanne in the Crested Butte hoodie, which looks like a casual everyday-wear item. It is also a bit too long for a mountain biking jacket.

It contrasts with her biking attire shown from 3 different selfies in the Arrest Affidavit (less fitted, not layered, has hood, not to mention somewhat less stylish).
1714588507764.png
Given the purported early morning ride, when conditions were in the low 50s, I would not say the clothing reported in the AR represented her biking clothes. Nor could I find any support for the assertion that she put on her clothes, biking or otherwise (to the extent her clothes were even “on”). Not to mention she left behind her shades and camelback.

No doubt, the attorney has seized on the presence of “Yeti shorts” as the proof positive that she was attired for a ride. I can speak from my personal experience (afraid it won’t be admissible at trial) that Yetis are worn by all genders for many activities besides biking, including lounging in one’s backyard talking to a boyfriend.

Lotta spinning, lotta gas lighting…. haven’t seen this much fantasy since my kids were reading the Harry Potter series.
 

I read Iris's comments as desperate- rather than her client, who had access to these tranquilizers, police should be looking at local vets and wildlife specialists; because there was caffeine in her system in must have been morning, as if nobody drinks coffee any other time. Its grasping, desperate, nonsense that only makes sense if you suspend logical thought.

There is one guy with motive, means, personality and opportunity that police should be looking at.
 
This photo has always been disturbing to me, the way he's blocking and holding the door, she's sweetly smiling and standing behind him. It's like he's intimidating whoever knocked on the door and Suzanne is trying to smooth it over. JMO

MOO I believe one of Suzanne's daughters took it. Tells a sad story, could have been a Diane Arbus photo.

My opinion: He's one of those "manspreading" guys. They like to spread out in meetings with others, especially with women present, to show that the man is dominant and to intimidate women. Just my opinion only.

Yes, and IE wants LE to pull vet records to see which local ranchers have scripts for BAM.

Yet, it's the one person who admits to having residual BAM on hand for which he has no current script... who is being targeted unfairly.....

OK, sure.
 
Preliminary hearing DAY 1 - August 9, 2021: Missing Investigation and SM's Affair...

Witnesses: Commander Alex Walker and FBI - Ken Harris.

@Niner court recap day 1--
8/9/21 Update: Day 1 of 4: Prosecution has 8 witnesses for first 2 days & 450 exhibits alone. Defense attorney Dru Nielsen asked for a one-minute opening statement as the hearing gets underway. Judge says he does not need that & will not permit that.
State witnesses: Commander Alex Walker, works for the Chaffee County Sheriff's Office. Walker was at the scene when deputies found the bike. Body-cam video from Dep. Brown of area where Suzanne Morphew's bike was found shown. Walker said deputies asked dispatch to ping her phone. Last activity on Suzanne's phone was 4:23am 5/10/20. Connected to the Poncha Springs tower. The boyfriend (MH) told deputies that Suzanne typically brings her car with her when she goes mountain biking, doesn't leave it home. Also mentioned: They've had some problems in the past. They have talked about separating. I've known this through Macy." Barry arrived at 8:46pm. Deputies ask two people to stop touching the bike in the body worn camera. Commander Walker testifies one of the people touching the bike was Barry Morphew. A picture of Suzanne wearing a light blue helmet & matching jacket with a camelback & sunglasses on is shown. She is on Methodist Mountain. The bike helmet was found .84 miles from the bike on May 14. The helmet was not damaged. It was found south on Highway 50 (10 meters from the road). Inside the helmet was a piece of paper with her name, number & family contact information. Walker says he spoke with Barry the following day (May 11) at 1:06pm (for 30 minutes). Barry said the last time he saw Suzanne was May 10 at 5am. Morphew also told Walker that the RV Park near the house was a suspicious location to be checked. He also mentioned a mountain lion. Says Barry texted Suzanne around 7:30am-8am wishing her a happy mother's day with no response. Commander says 10+ agencies helped in searches for Suzanne. He uncovers that searches are still underway. Suzanne's camelback was found in Suzanne's car. Sunglasses were found in Indiana inside the range rover. DA now asking Commander if anyone found any "drag" marks on the path where the bike was found & on the RV park trail. He says no.
Attorney Dru Nielsen on cross-examination. Investigators say Morphew told them he & Suzanne fought sometimes because he worked too much & he was upset about some medication Suzanne was on. He wanted her to get off the medication. Defense team asks if investigators have found any of Suzanne's blood in the house or anywhere in the course of this investigation, he says no. Commander Walker wrote 129 page affidavit which has been sealed from the public. Law enforcement agencies spent "thousands upon thousands of hours" searching for Suzanne. Grid searches, aircraft, scuba divers, swift water, K9 units, mines searched, drones, water pipes searched, ground penetrating radar search. In all of this, no human remains have been found. The day after helmet was found they searched this area. 134 search warrants have been signed in this case by judge. Nielsen says on July 8th investigators texted Morphew offering to bring him food & have a chat with him. She says on July 9th & 10th investigators were at the Morphew home. Barry was with LE to point out Suzanne's clothing — only there for a minute or two. Body camera footage shows he did what they asked. He wasn't allowed back in until authorities finished searching the home. Spy pen: Belonged to Suzanne. SO & her talked about getting her this spy pen. Morphew did not know about the spy pen. It is voice activated. Suzanne had suspected Barry was having an affair. Suzanne put "spy pen" in Barry's truck. Walker: "Barry wasn't found having an affair, Suzanne was having an affair for two years with a man named Jeff." Authorities didn't learn about this affair until November, 2020 — 6 months after Suzanne went missing. His name is Jeff Lidler, Nielsen said. There were hundreds of hours of phone calls, WhatsApp & other communication. They met up at least 6 times in different locations across the county & she didn't tell anybody about him. Nielsen says Jeff never came forward to law enforcement until they reached out to him 6 months after Suzanne went missing. She says Jeff asked FBI if he was a target of the investigation, they allegedly told him "no" & that they would "protect him". Jeff is a high school friend of Suzanne's.
The argument about time for questioning continues. The judge says if defense needs to call Commander Walker back at the end to tie up loose ends then they can, but they are going over their time limits. Nielsen argues he is the lead investigator & a critical witness. Prosecution says burden of proof is on them & they would like the defense to wrap up so they can get to their case. Judge tells defense he's confused why they're not understanding what he is asking of them.
On May 10, from 2:47pm (5/9) -5:30am (5/10) Morphew took steps in disposing of evidence according to activity on cell phones & truck. Neilsen is referring to Page 2 of the arrest affidavit re Telematix of truck.
Nielsen says DNA shows that there was a strong probability Suzanne's DNA was found on the cables that were unplugged from the system used to support the security cameras. They are talking about a blue cable to see if Suzanne's DNA was on that cable. DNA mixture of two. Likely Suzanne & an unknown male individual. Nielsen: DNA on the glove box of Suzanne's Range Rover came back with partial profile which matched 3 male profiles in CODIS (prison database) who were involved with sexual assault. Morphew's DNA excluded.
Nielsen concludes questioning & says she will save the rest of her questions for when they call the commander back.
Final point from DA Linda Stanley - Activity from Morphew's truck door shows it opened at around 3:26am on 5/10 & opened again at 8:10am. He told investigators he left the house that morning around 5am. Walker steps down.
FBI agent Ken Harris out of Denver office. He has been trained in the Behavioral Analysis Unit which led him to being involved in this case. He was looking into Suzanne's behaviors to help put pieces together. Testified about the spy pen. Agent Harris listened to the recordings from the spy pen that was apparently placed in Morphew's truck. He says the recording plays several podcasts from Forensic Files episodes that they believe Barry was listening to during drives. He says one of the Forensic File episodes was about someone going missing on a bike ride. And several more recordings about some of the conversations Barry & Suzanne had. One recording that starts in the truck: Suzanne was arguing with Barry about money. In particular, inheritance Suzanne had received that was used to buy the house & that Barry invested in business. Suzanne was also angry about what she can & cannot wear. Another recording, 5 hours long of Suzanne speaking with JL. Trip to Michigan on a business trip. This was important because FBI needed to find out who this “J” guy was. He lives in Michigan. They secretly met up 6 times in New Orleans, Michigan, Texas, Indiana (2x) & Florida.
Harris testifies Barry said he & Suzanne had a “perfect night” day before he left for Broomfield & she disappeared. Suzanne's best friend from Indiana told the FBI the couple hadn’t had a "perfect night" in a year & a half. Said she spoke with Suzanne all the time. Exhibit 3 through 17: Screen shots of texts between Suzanne & Sheila, Suzanne’s best friend. Iris Eaton: objects. The screen shots don’t indicate the time stamps so we can’t tell the order.
Another text: Suzanne "He's (Barry) unstable". Another text implies that Barry would turn their daughters against her. It's revealed through these texts with her best friend that Suzanne's cancer had come back in 2018. She was concerned that stress from fighting with Barry was causing her health to deteriorate. Agent Harris mentioned that Sheila told him in 2018, Barry allegedly pushed Suzanne into a closet & put a gun to his head & asked her if this is what she wanted. Text messages reveal that Suzanne wanted to wait until Macy was on her own, out of the house to separate. Texts show Suzanne told Sheila, Barry wanted her to be the bad guy & he wanted to look good.
Prosecution is going through pages of text screenshots from Shelia talking to Suzanne. They talk about divorce, Macy & how Suzanne is afraid to be alone with Barry. Jeff Lindsey is still presenting text message screen shots & FBI agent Kenneth Harris is answering questions (exhibit 18-26) re texts from Jeff. The last communication from Suzanne was at 14:11 (2:11pm) on May 9 between her & JL on Linked In. SA Harris says JL learned of Suzanne going missing & he did not want news of the affair to get out because he wanted to protect Suzanne's daughters.
Defense is up to questions SA Harris. Iris Eytan is starting off asking the agent about the texts between Suzanne & her friend Sheila.Eytan is asking if Harris is doing interpretations of the text messages. He said Sheila was providing her interpretations. The phone records were collected too as well as multiple interviews. Sheila & Holly, friends of Suzanne had recorded secret interviews with Morphew for the FBI at one point. An interview with JL on Dec. 18, 2020 & three pages of conversations from the Linked In account. Talking again about the Spy Pen. Sheila got a spy pen — looks like an everyday black pen — and gave it to Suzanne when they were both in Florida. There were multiple audio files on the pen. It activates when it hears a voice, Eytan said. Eleven files were deleted (2 were recovered) & 11 were saved. The spy pen was found in Suzanne's closet. Harris said JL’s phone was pinging off Michigan towers on May 10. Investigators found some journals but not all journals, according to Harris. Suzanne didn't write about the affair in any journal. Investigators never found Suzanne's phone or the charger she leaves plugged in next her bed. So investigators had what was backed up on the iCloud as well as phone records from the phone company. Eytan asked, if Suzanne had a simcard. Harris said no. SA Harris is discussing phone records & calls between Suzanne & JL. Defense says JL planned to come see Suzanne in CO in March, but COVID hit. By April 2020 defense says the two were talking about love & calling each other their soulmates. They were sending nude photographs to each other & saying they should get married.
Judge has released SA Harris from the stand for the day. He'll be back tomorrow morning. Asks both attorneys to work to come to an agreement about SA Harris report on several things. Preliminary hearing starts at 9am (court site says 9:30am) on 8/10/21.


Day 2 to resume on 8/10/21 with the cross and redirect of FBI Ken Harris.

Good recap of Day 1 by Denver News 7 here:

 
Preliminary hearing DAY 2 - August 10, 2021: FBI Cast Report and Trash Runs

Witnesses: FBI's J Grusing and Ken Harris
@Niner

8/10/21 Update: Day 2 of 4: State witnesses: FBI agent Ken Harris out of Denver office. He has been trained in the Behavioral Analysis Unit which led him to being involved in this case. Cross exam by Attorney Eytan. Asked about Morphew's safe in the garage. That it was searched. Eytan is claiming that Suzanne took $70K. The State objected. The judge allowed her to continue. Senior Deputy District Attorney Jeff Lindsey says Morphew previously accused law enforcement of stealing the money. Agent Harris said that Suzanne would use FindmyIphone app & track Barry. He would sometimes put it his phone on Airplane mode to avoid this.
Judge cautioned the defense that they are burning through a lot of their time & that they need to be cautious of that.
About 20 messages between JL & Suzanne were exchanged on 4/21/20. Agent Harris asked for his binder that has all of the text messages to reference. These specific messages were not spoken about yesterday. Messages read, "I want to be with you" "I can only be me with you" "You know I was born to love you".
Defense asked SA Harris about what Suzanne & Morphew grown daughters knew about their marriage. Both girls said their parents argued. Macy was asked about her dad being physically abusive & she allegedly told investigators she couldn't see him being abusive. On May 6, text message from Suzanne to Morphew said, "I’m done. I could care less about what you’ve been up to for years. We need to figure this out civilly." Morphew sent messages to Suzanne "I promise you, you are wrong about all the crazy thoughts about me. Why would I want another, only a fool would stray from an angel like you." Barry had deleted this text but investigators found it.
Agent Harris said Mallory was spoken to early on into the investigation but after that not able to speak with. But she said that they never spoke of divorce. Texts go on to say that Suzanne morning before she went missing--she allegedly messages Jeff Libler telling him she had a fine night & looked at houses for sale. She follows that with "Still talk about Arizona."
Attorney Eytan wanted to speak about Suzanne's secret bank account. The state objects & says beyond the scope. Judge overruled objection. In April, Suzanne opened up an account with GreenDot bank & Royal Compass Management. Eytan asked Agent Harris he had looked into this & he said he hadn't.
On redirect, Senior DDA Jeff Lindsey says there were indications that Morphew was 'out there looking' to have an affair. He refers to a screenshot from Barry's phone looking for 'cute girls near Salida,' and defense objects & says that there was a shared iCloud account between the family, so it's not clear who made the search. The state asked Agent Harris about Barry's phone. There was some deleted dating web history such as Ashley Maddison. When this was said, Barry sat up in his chair. In March, interviews with Morphew & the FBI asked Barry about the website Celebrity Jehad website he had allegedly search which is a *advertiser censored* website. Barry now has his arms crossed.
Agent Harris is being asked about Holly Wilson & a conversation (11/6/20) she had with BM. BM was accusing Suzanne of sleeping with a man in a basement in November. He allegedly told Holly, "If I find him, I will shoot off his balls, and shove them down his throat". When Holly Wilson asked BM about what the last thing he had said to Suzanne before she went missing & Holly remembers him stumbling & hesitating.
Another argument ensues as DDA Lindsey brings up a search on a pornographic website from Morphew's iCloud account. Before getting any further defenses asks judge to approach the bench. Reminder- the iCloud account is shared between the family.
Harris says both credit card activity & phone records show that Suzanne's lover was in Michigan at the time she disappeared on May 10. On May 10, JL had wished Suzanne a Happy Mother's Day & knew it would be a hard day because she missed her mom. Suzanne never responded. According to FBI Agent Ken Harris, the last time Suzanne's lover texted her was May 11, the day she was scheduled for a cancer treatment, wishing her luck. This was Monday after she was reported missing. She never responded.
Former FBI Agent Johnny Grusing worked in Denver FBI Office (retired 2 weeks ago). Has worked a lot of no-body homicide cases. The Chaffee County Sheriff's Office asked him to interview Morphew because of his behavioral analyst experience. He investigated Morphew's cell phone. He analyzed it. Agent Grusing was asked to find out where Barry was on May 9 & 10. Agent Grusing asked about Morphew's truck based on the data. There were 625 pages of the report to be analyzed. The data included when the door opened, closed & when brake lights were on, etc.
On May 9, 2020 - The telematics of his truck & phone were correlating with what Morphew was saying. And Suzanne’s phone.
At 12:02am incoming call & an outgoing 2:17am on May 9 on Suzanne's phone. Barry doesn't have a call until a little after 6am.
He went to Tail winds property around 11am then went home around 11:30am to eat veggie soup with Suzanne.
Morphew allegedly left around 1:30pm makes a few calls checks out a job at Kim Gyms in Salida.
Then returned home around 2:44pm as she was sunbathing & sending photos of herself to her lover, Jeff Libler.
Text messages: 9:50am BM: Wanna go on a hike? 9:52am SM: where? (no response). Later on, asking about summer tires on range rover? 10:36am SM: Wanna meet to hike? 12 minutes later at 10:48am BM: No, coming home. SM: Get Hot tub stuff.
At 11:50am-12:50am, Morphew's phone is pinged near the river behind his home. Investigators asked why this was, his response was, "I was looking for a turkey that MM had shot some time ago."
At 1:42pm Suzanne's last "proof of life" was a photo she sent to her lover on LinkedIn, according to FBI agent. She was out sunbathing. Shortly before she had messaged him saying “Guess who’s alone again??”
At 1:55pm door opens at DSI (Diesslin Structures, Inc.) in Salida & there is surveillance video as well.
At 2pm Morphew was getting his blade replaced on his bobcat.
At 2:03pm while Morphew was away Suzanne was sending LinkedIn messages to Jeff Libler. Investigators showed a picture Suzanne sent to Jeff to Barry, he said she "looked drunk" & she had "drunk eyes" Grusing says it's the last 'proof of life' for Suzanne.
At 2:11pm Suzanne told JL to get on What's Up App. She messaged him on LinkedIn. Exhibit #59: The photo is shown in the courtroom, Suzanne smiling.
Truck GPS coordinates show Barry's truck goes into park at 2:43:59. Phone coordinates show he walks around the house. You can hear a pin drop in the courtroom as tension is high. Agent Grusing asked what he was doing outside. Morphew responded, "I shoot chipmunks. I have shot 85 chipmunks."
At 2:47pm, BM's phone goes into airplane mode. Suzanne's phone is getting messages from her lover, Libler asking about the weather. meanwhile, BM says he was moving around the house shooting chipmunks. Former FBI agent reveals they found a tranquilizer dart cap in the dryer of the Morphew's house. He also asked Morphew about what gun he used. He said a 22.
His truck doesn't move from 2:44pm until 4:44pm on May 9.
At 4:44pm Morphew's truck door opens & closes.
At 5:33pm the truck power was disconnected & system rebooted.
At 9:25pm the gear shift goes from park to reverse & moves backward in the driveway 96 feet at the Morphew home off of Puma Path in Maysville, CO. Passenger door opens & closes until 9:52pm.
At 10:17pm
Morphew's phone is taken off of Airplane mode & it was at the home.
On May 10, 2020
At 2:53am Suzanne's phone made an outgoing call on May 10.
At 3:25am Barry's truck doors were open & closed. At the end of driveway until 3:58am. Cell phone moves from residence up until where 225 & highway 50 intersect. The phone moved toward where the bike was found.
Suzanne's phone was last pinged around 4:22am on May 10th in an area that had hard to reach signal. Suzanne's phone last registered a signal far from the Morphew home at 4:10-4:22am on the day she was reported missing. It didn't register any other signals after that.
At 4:31am Morphew's phone went into airplane mode & at the residence until 5:37am. His phone came back online as he is heading toward Broomfield, CO.
Around 5:37am he was heading toward Buena Vista.
At 5:38am Morphew texted his mother, Shirley Happy Mother's Day.
Before texting Suzanne at 6:56am. "You up? Happy Mother's Day. I love you."
At 8:10am he stopped at an RTD Bus stop in Broomfield off of HWY 36. He allegedly told Grusing he was throwing something away in the trash. Grusing says this wasn't the first stop at the trash can. TRASH RUN #1: Morphew's truck passenger & driver's doors open, according to data it took him two minutes to throw something away that was a few feet away from his truck. The state has pulled up a google image of the bus stop in Broomfield.
When Morphew allegedly arrived at the Holiday Inn Express in Broomfield, he parked on the south side. Doors open & close again. He opened someone would come in & out so he could get a free breakfast at the hotel. Another google image is being shown where Morphew parked. Attorney Neilsen is asking for a copy of the image, the State is saying the images are in discovery. The Judge's secretary is running off to make a copy. TRASH RUN #2: When Morphew first arrived to the hotel he had another trash run. Barry said he did, but didn't remember what he threw away. There is no video to be collected on the southside of the hotel.
At 8:25am Morphew walked into the hotel & went into his room around 8:38am. Another google map is shown of where he parked & checked into the hotel. Showed a screenshot of Barry walking into the hotel. Morphew has something in his hand. Something small, Agent Grusing couldn't decide what it was. His next action is carrying multiple items to his room. Hiking boots, a teal-covered piece of clothing, a darker black piece of clothing & a light blue bag.
At 8:41am Morphew texts Suzanne: “have made it to Broomfield". He never called. Morphew stayed in his room for an hour, he is not wearing a long sleeve shirt. He is now wearing a black v-neck shirt, a trash bag, hiking boots. Morphew said that there were holes in the boots but the laces were good so he wanted to take them to the room & remove the laces & then trash the boots. Photos of this from the hotel surveillance video are shown.
At 9:12am Grusing says Morphew leaves hotel & drives by the worksite he is supposed to be working at in Broomfield. He then goes to a McDonalds in Broomfield. He is caught throwing more things in a trashcan. This is TRASH RUN 3. He is seen pushing trash down into the trash can with both hands, according to the surveillance video. Agent Grusing asked Morphew what he threw away & he couldn't remember. He then went to a carwash to clean his windshield & then a Men's Wearhouse parking lot. TRASH RUN #4: He spent the most time at this trash run at Men's Wearhouse 40 minutes. His truck data opened & closed. This is in Broomfield. FBI has video of. Morphew mentioned to investigators he had thrown away tranquilizer material. That is the only thing he would say that he threw away.
11:30am: Morphew called SuzanneMorphew.
At 12:06pm Morphew calls his daughter, MM (oldest).
No time given (approx. 12:30pm): Morphew returned back to the hotel with a large notebook with papers that are messy. Then left the hotel 20 minutes later with the notebook in hand with papers neat in hand. He also has changed shirts into a grey t-shirt. Went to the Broomfield WALL & did 11-15 minutes of work. Removed blocks from the retaining wall. This job was for Garrett Construction. Grusing said you can't work on Sunday's in Broomfield because that is against city code. It looks like he spent about 15-20 minutes there.
At 12:27pm Morphew is seen on hotel surveillance moving two bags to a dumpster. Throwing away a plastic bag that you can see camo coat & a tree container. Exhibit 50: A different angle of a surveillance camera. Shows Morphew carrying the items to the dumpster. TRASH RUN #5. He is seen walking with his hands in his pockets with his head down as he walks away from the dumpster.
At 12:42pm until 5:55pm Morphew does not leave his hotel room in Broomfield. This doesn't match the statements he gave investigators early in May. He claimed he had been working at the wall.
At 3:30pm he texted Suzanne to call him.
At 5:15pm he got a call from Mr. Ritter. Neighbor about Suzanne missing. Barry had told CBI agents that he received call while working at the worksite. Contradictory info.
At 5:55pm Morphew has changed shirts again as he leaves the hotel room. Agent Grusing said Barry wouldn't say what he did in the hotel room. He mentioned watching FOX News & a basketball show.
After 6pm Morphew takes multiple trips in & out of the hotel entrance bringing in tools. Asks the front desk person if it would be ok to leave them for his workers who were coming later. These were all hand tools-nothing electric.
Afternoon session:
On May 6, Morphew sent text messages to Suzanne talking about suicide. "Going to see my savior. This life on earth is a mear grain of sand compared to eternity."
On May 7, Morphew texted a person about getting a new truck. Attempted to call Suzanne's dad Gene. Also texted George Davis. Mallory was sending pictures of their trip to Utah & also a text that said, "Finally got the job!"
May 8, 7:02am: computer scientist able to recover from notes on phone a list of grievances against Barry. 50 reasons why Suzanne is leaving the marriage.
On May 8 at 9:28am, Suzanne texted her sister saying, He has been "abusive emotionally and physically." Also saying that Morphew was abrasive & abusive.
On May 8: Multiple calls between Suzanne & Morphew were sent back & forth to each other Friday morning. At 10:55am Barry sent a text, "I love you Suzanne."
On May 8, Suzanne sent a picture of Morphew standing outside Moonlight Pizza waiting for pizza (sent) to the girls. The girls are in Utah on a roadtrip.
I have plugged these times for May 9 & 10th into the timeline above
On May 9, Text messages: 9:50am BM: Wanna go on a hike? 9:52am SM: where? (no response) Later on, asking about summer tires on range rover? 10:36am SM: Wanna meet to hike? 12 minutes later 10:48am BM: No, coming home SM: Get Hottub stuff.
On May 9, between 8-9pm Saturday night before Suzanne was reported missing, her Facebook codes were reset & her account friended 23 of her old friends, 20 of them male. investigators asked Barry if he did this & he denied it.
Exhibit 60 is being showed. It is a google map of where the helmet & bike was found vs. where the home is on Puma Path. Suzanne;s helmet was 50 feet from the road.
On May 9 11:50am-12:50am, Morphew's phone is pinged near the river behind his home. Investigators asked why this was, his response was, "I was looking for a turkey that MM had shot some time ago."
Attorney Dru Neilsen is now questioning Agent Grusing. They are looking at Morphew's phone records proving that Barry called Suzanne as he drove home from Broomfield. No answer.
May 9th @ 2:03pm while Morphew was away Suzanne was sending LinkedIn messages to Jeff Libler. Investigators showed a picture Suzanne sent to Jeff to Barry, he said she "looked drunk" & she had "drunk eyes" Grusing says it's the last 'proof of life' for Suzanne.
Defense is arguing that Morphew's phone could be staying still in one spot- when the former agent says his phone was pinging on several places on the outside of the house. Defense says it could've been in one place- Grusing says "That's why we asked him what he was doing."
Defense attorney Dru NIelsen questioning Agent Grusing says Morphew spoke with investigators 23X from May 10 til the end of 2020. None of those times did he mention that he shot chipmunks. This in reference to why his cellphone showed he was running around the house on the 10th.
Defense exhibit J,K,I,L,M: Google maps around the Morphew home off Puma Path in Maysville with push pins on them. Neilsen again is speaking about the distance between these points referring to Morphew's phone. Neilsen says this shows he had to have been moving through walls.
Defense exhibit *advertiser censored*: Another copy of Cellebrite report. Neilsen is speaking about the precision value of this data. (more up to date program) The state is objecting this foundation because the exhibit doesn't say who's phone the data came from or a number.
Neighbors didn't report hearing any sort of argument or noise around 2:45 p.m. May 9, which is when investigators speculated that Morphew was 'chasing' Suzanne around the house, based that imprecise GPS data, Nielsen says.
Exhibit T is admitted. It is a copy of the Cellebrite readers report with precision value which Neilsen points out was info in the affidavit but didn't have the precision values the defense would like to add.
Defense now recounting the movement of Morphew's truck. Recall-- it was parked in the Morphew’s driveway from the afternoon of May 9th to early morning May 10th.
Neilsen is going over the truck & cell phone data again on May 9. At 1:55 p.m. door opens at DSI and there is surveillance video as well. At 2 p.m. Morphew was getting his blade replaced on his bobcat on Saturday, May 9.
Defense says the door opening events recorded from #BarryMorphew car are not always accurate in that on May 9th there was an event that was captured where the door was open but never closed.
At 2:44pm Morphew comes home according to truck data & the next-door event is at 4:44pm. Agent Grusing said he asked Morphew if he would authenticate whether he left the door open or not. Neilsen checking the data on the truck again from May 9, 10.
Defense Exhibit GG: List of events comparing the door events to the light events on Morphew's truck.
On page 6, Morphew's truck stays in the same coordinates at 4:44pm until 9:25pm. Parking light events on Page 7, doesn't change the coordinate of the truck. 6 odometer events on May 9. 3 odometer events 10:04am & 10:06am are around the same of two parking light events.
According to an employee at Salida Stove & Spa, Neilsen said from an interview with investigator Derek Graham Morphew visited on May 9 between 4 & 5:30 p.m. That there was nothing unusual about his demeanor. There were 19 miles that were unaccounted for when Morphew went to Broomfield. Neilsen said this Salida Stove & Spa trip could account for 18 miles. "At 2:45pm Morphew did something terrible to his wife & then went to get his hot tub fixed?" Neilsen asked. Agent Grusing responded, "I don't think their timing is accurate." (referring to Salida Stove & Spa).
Now Neilsen is going over phone data of Suzanne & Morphew. According to the CAST Report, an incoming call at 12:02am & an outgoing 2:17am on May 9. Barry doesn't have a call until a little after 6am. Also Suzanne's phone made an outgoing call at 2:53am of May 10. That was a half an hour before the door event occurred on Morphew's truck.
First interview with Com. Walker, Morphew claimed on Sunday morning, he set his alarm for 4:30am. He had already loaded the truck the night before. Left the driveway around 5a.m.
Takes about 32 minutes to drive to Johnson Village from Morphew home. Neilsen said this is according to Google directions. Based on phone data, he is in Johnson Village at 5:37am. "Do you think there is time to dispose of a human body in that time?" Neilsen asked. "No there is not," Agent Grusing replied.
At 6:56a.m. sent two text messages to Suzanne "You up?" "Happy Mother's Day, I love you."
Defense exhibit FF: Information about Airplane Mode that investigators showed to Morphew.
Defense asks Grusing about when Morphew's phone was turned onto airplane mode. She says “can a phone still be tracked in airplane mode?” He says “I would guess” she says “just because there was no phone activity doesn’t mean it was in airplane mode?” He says “yes”.
Verizon records show Morphew's cell phone at 7:19am on May 9 receiving a signal. Neilsen asked, "Can a phone receive a signal in airplane mode?" Grusing said, "I don't know."
Nielsen just asked to break for the day because she has another half an hour which would put the court past 5 pm. Judge said no, that she has to continue & we will wrap at 5pm.
Prosecution says they still have witnesses to still call, only 3 have been called. He believes those 3 are the “meat and potatoes” for this hearing BUT still would like to call other witnesses. He says defense is taking too long and he doesn’t know if it’ll be done in 4 days.
Judge says he’s going to keep defense tight on time because they’re taking fairly longer than the prosecution. Judge is worried this won’t be done in 4 total days. Defense says they understand they have to be shorter.
Judge says he’s not sure if they’ll continue the livestream at the Chaffee County Fairgrounds because there haven’t been many people showing up.
Time use: Defense 6 hours 55 minutes Prosecution 5 hours 20 minutes. Preliminary hearing continues at 8am on 8/23/21.

@MarcSallinger
Still going through minute by minute-FBI agent says at 5:15 neighbor called Barry to ask about Suzanne. Surveillance shows he was in his hotel room in Broomfield at this time.
Barry had told CBI agents that he received call while working at the worksite. Contradictory info

Lauren Scharf

This story changed according to Agent Grusing. Early in May he said he worked at the jobsite and in April amended his statement to watching FOX News

Marc Sallinger
@MarcSallinger
FBI agent says “Barry’s statements changed significantly” over time as FBI introduced more information to him.FBI has shown surveillance pictures of Barry making stops at 5 trash cans/sumpsters in Broomfield on day Suzanne went missing. Still don't know significance of that yet

Carol McKinley
@CarolAMcKinley
Barry Morphew made **five trash runs**, one with a tree container and a camo coat, by the time he got to Broomfield, Colorado to re-do a wall. This is Sunday May 10. A day his client says he should have known that Broomfield doesn't allow people to do construction.

Crime Talk with Scott Reisch
@CrimeTalkPod
·12:42 - 5:55 pm Barry is in his room

Lauren Scharf
@LaurenScharfTV
On May 9, #BarryMorphews phone is pinged near the river behind his home. Investigators asked why this was, his response was, "I was looking for a turkey that Mallory had shot some time ago." 11:50 a.m. - 12:50 a.m.

Ashley Franco
@AshleyKKTV
May 9th while #BarryMorphew was away #SuzanneMorpehw was sending LinkedIn messages to Jeff Libler. Investigators showed a picture Suzanne sent to Jeff to Barry, he said she "looked drunk" and she had "drunk eyes"
Investigators say this is the last sign of Suzanne being alive

Lauren Scharf
@LaurenScharfTV
#BarryMorphew left the home around 1:38 p.m. #suzannemorphew sent a message to Libler saying "Guess who is alone again?? at 2:03 picture was sent sunbathing


Russell Haythorn
@RussellHaythorn
Grusing testifies that Suzanne sent her lover, Jeff Libler, a photo at 2:03 p.m. on Saturday, May 9. Grusing says that #BarryMorphew told them that Suzanne appeared drunk in the photo. Grusing says it's the last 'proof of life' for Suzanne

Lauren Scharf
@LaurenScharfTV
This picture is the last PROOF OF LIFE of #Suzannemorphew Barry looked at the photo and allegedly told investigators she looked drunk. Described her eyes as drunk eyes, "it would take the edge off for the night."

Lauren Scharf
@LaurenScharfTV
Attorney Dru Neilsen is now questioning Agent Grusing. They are looking at #BarryMorphew phone records proving that Barry called Suzanne as he drove home from Broomfield. No answer

Marc Sallinger
@MarcSallinger
Suzanne Morphew's last "proof of life" was a photo she sent to her lover at 1:42p on LinkedIn on May 9, according to FBI agent. She was out sunbathing. Shortly before she had messaged him saying “Guess who’s alone again??”

Carol McKinley
@CarolAMcKinley
May 9th around 2:03 pm is when inv think is the last photo taken of #SuzanneMorphew alive. She texts it to her lover, Jeff Libling. When Agent Grusing later showed photo to B, he said she appeared drunk.
Grusing - "He looked at her eyes and said 'Those are drunk eyes.'"

Ashley Franco
@AshleyKKTV
The defense has taken over on cross. They are asking Grusing about calls #BarryMorphew was making to #SuzanneMorphew

Lauren Scharf
@LaurenScharfTV
May 10: #BarryMorphew called #SuzanneMorphew at 11:20 a.m. then called Mallory at 12:06 p.m.

Marc Sallinger
@MarcSallinger
Defense Attorney Nielsen is now questioning FBI agent Grusing
Showing cell phone records, she says they prove that Barry tried calling Suzanne when he was driving home from Broomfield the day she went missing
Agent had previously testified that Barry had not called Suzanne

Lauren Scharf
@LaurenScharfTV
Agent Grusing helped write the 129-page arrest affidavit. #BarryMorphew spoke with LE 23 times. Barry didn't LE until Feb. 28, 2021, about the chipmunks 9 months after #SuzanneMorphew went missing. (reference about phone pinging outside the home)

Ashley Franco
@AshleyKKTV
Defense says Grusing asked #BarryMorphew why his phone was roaming around their property. He asked Barry if he was looking for "her" Barry says that's when he was shooting chipmunks. Defense argues Grusing testified that he doesn't know if the phone was bouncing around or still.

Russell Haythorn
@RussellHaythorn
Defense attorney now cross-examining Grusing. Defense says #BarryMorphew spoke to law enforcement 23 times from the day of Suzanne's disappearance to the end of 2020. Grusing says that 'seems high,' but didn't disagree.

Lauren Scharf
@LaurenScharfTV
Agent Grusing said the 23 times speaking with LE sounded like a high number. Neilsen is questioning Grusing about the pinging data. She is showing him defense exhibit H: Cellebrite Report
Ashley Franco
@AshleyKKTV
Defense is arguing that #BarryMorphew phone could be staying still in one spot- when the former agent says his phone was pinging on several places on the outside of the house. Defense says it could've been in one place- Grusing says "That's why we asked him what he was doing."

Lauren Scharf
@LaurenScharfTV
She is talking about Push pins on a map. (locations where #BarryMorphew phone pinged) Attorney Neilsen is speaking about how much time it takes for someone to walk from one distance to another.

Marc Sallinger
@MarcSallinger
Defense is making the argument that the cell phone data showing Barry moving around home as soon as he arrived home the day Suzanne went missing is inaccurate. Barry says he was shooting chipmunks, though only told investigators that nine months into case
Carol McKinley
@CarolAMcKinley
Morphew atty Dru NIelsen questioning Agent Grusing says Barry Morphew spoke with investigators 23X from May 10 til the end of 2020. None of those times did he mention that he shot chipmunks. This in reference to why his cellphone showed he was running around the house on the 10th

Lauren Scharf
@LaurenScharfTV
Defense exhibit J,K,I,L,M: Google maps around the Morphew home off Puma Path in Maysville with push pins on them. Neilsen again is speaking about the distance between these points referring to #BarryMorphew phone. Neilsen says this shows he had to have been moving through walls.

Lauren Scharf
@LaurenScharfTV
The judge has asked multiple times in court to keep masks on while inside the courtroom. #BarryMorphew had to pull his mask above nose

Ashley Franco
@AshleyKKTV
Defense is still going over #BarryMorphew cell phone position on the Morphew property the day before #SuzanneMorphew went missing. Right now they're going through coordinates and defense is detailing where exactly the phone was and how long it took to get to different points.

Crime Talk with Scott Reisch
@CrimeTalkPod
Defense is calculating the distance between the pushpins that Grusing had mentioned would be Barry’s coordinates (via his phone) at 2:44pm on May 9, 2020.
The distance between 1 and 2 is over 50 ft. Grusing testified the time between these 2 points was one second

Russell Haythorn
@RussellHaythorn
Defense poking holes in prosecutions theory that cell phone data suggests #BarryMorphew was moving all around the house the day before Suzanne disappeared. Defense says Barry would have had to move through walls & at speeds up to 42 mph in order for cell records to be accurate.

Ashley Franco
@AshleyKKTV
Still going through phone pings. It's hard to keep track of all the points, so I don't want to confuse anyone by trying to explain it all!

Lauren Scharf
@LaurenScharfTV
Sorry gang... they are showing things on the computer that are too small to read. They are going over the Cellebrite Report extensively. District Attorney Linda Stanely has not questioned a witness today

Carol McKinley
@CarolAMcKinley
Grusing still on stand as Nielsen hammers at the exact time it would have taken for #BarryMorphew to run around the family house on May 10th when he pulled up to the home and Suzanne was texting her boyfriend on the porch. confusing talk about latitude, longitude, feet per second

Lauren Scharf
@LaurenScharfTV
Agent Grusing said he isn't too familiar with this program that the defense is sharing. He said this isn't what they use, they use another program and knows what this program is but not really how to read the data.

·efense exhibit *advertiser censored*: Another copy of cellebrite report. Neilsen is speaking about the precision value of this data. (more up to date program) The state is objecting this foundation because the exhibit doesn't say who's phone the data came from or a number.

Carol McKinley
@CarolAMcKinle
This is mind-numbing testimony & people in the crtroom are struggling to stay awake.
Judge asks Grusing if he understands the method Nielsen is using to explain this. It’s the first time he’s seen it. He says he can follow, but he says to Nielsen - “You are teaching me.”

Lauren Scharf
@LaurenScharfTV
Judge allows this exhibit... If you were wondering Agent Johnny Grusing is only the third witness the prosecution has called to the stand. They were planning to call 8 for the first two days of #Barrymorphew preliminary hearing

Carol McKinley
@CarolAMcKinley
In the Arrest Warrant Affidavit, Nielsen points out, there's a sentence which says "There’s an opinion that Barry is most likely chasing Suzanne around." She asks Gruning "Did the neighbors heard unusual noises at 2:44 pm on the 10th?" "No."

Russell Haythorn
@RussellHaythorn
Grusing testifies he wrote in arrest affidavit that #BarryMorphew was 'most likely chasing Suzanne around while she was conscious' and that's why Barry's phone pinged in different areas in/around house, but defense says his movement impossible given time/distance of cell records

Lauren Scharf
@LaurenScharfTV
Exhibit T is admitted. It is a copy of the cellebrite readers report with precision value which Neilsen points out was info in the affidavit but didn't have the precision values the defense would like to add.

Nielsen and Eytan shuffle around papers on the defense desk for a few minutes. Nielsen apologizes for the delay. Barry sits watching with his mask still below his nose.

Taking an afternoon break. I'm keeping track of witnesses and wondering how they'll get to five more before the end of the day. We're on the third out of 8 and no sign of Jonathan Gruning stepping down soon. I'm told the Chaffee Co Crthouse docket is full tomorrow. Stay tuned

Crime Talk with Scott Reisch
@CrimeTalkPod
Law enforcement had to open dash to get it. Barry’s car was seized on May 10 and didn’t look like Barry had tampered with the dash. Barry’s car was dusty and dirty. Dust was not disturbed.




Lauren Scharf
@LaurenScharfTV
Neilsen is going over the truck and cell phone data again on May 9. At 1:55 p.m. door opens at DSI and there is surveillance video as well.

Lauren Scharf
@LaurenScharfTV
At 2 p.m. #BarryMorphew was getting his blade replaced on his bobcat. on Saturday, May 9.

Ashley Franco
@AshleyKKTV
Defense says the door opening events recorded from #BarryMorphew car are not always accurate in that on May 9th there was an event that was captured where the door was open but never closed.

Lauren Scharf
@LaurenScharfTV
At 2:44 p.m. #BarryMorphew comes home according to truck data and the next-door event is at 4:44 p.m. Agent Grusing said he asked Morphew if he would authenticate whether he left the door open or not. Neilsen checking the data on the truck again from May 9, 10.

Lauren Scharf
@LaurenScharfTV
Defense Exhibit GG: List of events comparing the door events to the light events on #BarryMorphew truck.

Marc Sallinger
@MarcSallinger
Defense is now trying to poke holes in data presented by FBI agent from both phone tracker and tracker on car. Arguing data is inaccurate and there’s no way he could move so quickly from place to place. It's very nuanced testimony focused on what data is tracked and what isn't

Lauren Scharf
@LaurenScharfTV
On page 6, #BarryMorphew truck stays in the same coordinates at 4:44 p.m. until 9:25 p.m. Parking light events on Page 7, doesn't change the coordinate of the truck. 6 odometer events on May 9. 3 odometer events 10:04 am & 10:06 am. are around the same of two parking light events

Carol McKinley
@CarolAMcKinley
Back in courtroom, Nielsen is attacking the technology Grusing used to figure out exactly where #BarryMorphew and his truck were on May 9 and 10. Much discussion about odometer, parking light and door opening/closing events on his Ford F350 & whether they match up

Lauren Scharf
@LaurenScharfTV
According to an employee at Salida Stove and Spa, Neilsen said from an interview with investigator Derek Graham #BarryMorphew visited on May 9 between 4 and 5:30 p.m. That there was nothing unusual about his demeanor.

Russell Haythorn
@RussellHaythorn
Defense says employees at Salida Stove and Spa saw Barry come in to the store between 4-5:30pm on Saturday, May 9 and there was nothing odd about Barry's demeanor. Agent Grusing says he did not include this information in his timeline of events from May 9.

Lauren Scharf
@LaurenScharfTV
#BarryMorphew had a convo with Janelle and Colton Nebal at the store, according to Neilsen. She is questioning Agent Grusing on his timeline. On May 8, Morphew sent a message to Colton around 1:18 p.m. about getting his hot tub fixed. Asking when he could come out to the home

Lauren Scharf
@LaurenScharfTV
There were 19 miles that were unaccounted for when #BarryMorphew went to Broomfield. Neilsen said this Salida Stove and Spa trip could account for 18 miles

Lauren Scharf
@LaurenScharfTV
Agent Grusings theory is that #BarryMorphew did something to #SuzanneMorphew when he got home on May 9. Chasing Suzanne around the home while she is concious. The push pin map that they presented said it isn't possible for him to move at 45 miles per hour, according to Neilsen

Crime Talk with Scott Reisch
@CrimeTalkPod
Grusing theory that #BarryMorphew did something to Suzanne when he got home at 2:44pm. Ran around the house and was ‘most likely chasing Suzanne while she is conscious’. Nielsen: how would this be possible? He is traveling at 30 mph?

Lauren Scharf
@LaurenScharfTV
"At 2:45 p.m. #BarryMorphew did something terrible to his wife and then went to get his hot tub fixed?" Neilsen asked. Agent Grusing responded, "I don't think their timing is accurate." (referring to Salida Stove and Spa)

Carol McKinley
@CarolAMcKinley
Nielsen hammers at investigation's theory : Nielsen-your theory is that BM did something to Suzanne at 244 when he arrived home. He was most likely chasing her while she was conscious.
JG yes
DN-The push pin evidence refutes the theory….do you think he traveled 50 mph between the walls of the house? Do you still believe he was most likely chasing Suzanne while she was conscious?
Yes

Jamie Leary
@JamieALeary
Defense trying to disprove investigator's theory, that erratic cell phone pings on May 9th from #BarryMorphew's home was him chasing Suzanne around the house before killing her. Defense says Barry went to get his hot tub fixed shortly after. Shop employee confirms.

Lauren Scharf
@LaurenScharfTV
Neilsen is going over the truck data again with Agent Grusing. BERLA report from 3:25 am - 3:49 am total of 7 door events and 6 parking lights events. Indoor lights are also considered as parking lights

Lauren Scharf
@LaurenScharfTV
Now Neilsen is going over phone data of #SuzanneMorphew and #BarryMorphew. According to the CAST REPORT, an incoming call at 12:02 a.m. and an outgoing 2:17 a.m. on May 9. Barry doesn't have a call until a little after 6 a.m.

Lauren Scharf
@LaurenScharfTV
ALSO Suzanne's phone made an outgoing call at 2:53 am of MAY 10. That was a half an hour before the door event occurred on #BarryMorphew truck.

Russell Haythorn
@RussellHaythorn
FBI agent's theory is that Barry chased Suzanne around the house before killing her. Defense trying to disprove this. Neighbors who were home at the time said they never heard anything. Defense also says cell records and Barry's vehicle telematics data are unreliable at best

Lauren Scharf
@LaurenScharfTV
#BarryMorphew First interview with Com. Walker, Morphew claimed on Sunday morning, he set his alarm for 4:30 am. He had already loaded the truck the night before. Left the driveway around 5 a.m.

Lauren Scharf
@LaurenScharfTV
Takes about 32 minutes to drive to Johnson Village from #BarryMorphew home. Neilsen said this is according to Google directions. Based on phone data, he is in Johnson Village at 5:37 am.

Lauren Scharf
@LaurenScharfTV
"Do you think there is time to dispose of a human body in that time?" Neilsen asked. "No there is not," Agent Grusing replied

On March 5, Agent Grusing showed #BarryMorphew a list of the times when he used Airplane Mode. Neilsen is asking if GPS can still be tracked. He replied it can

Ashley Franco
@AshleyKKTV
Defense asks Grusing about when #BarryMorphew phone was turned onto airplane mode. She says “can a phone still be tracked in airplane mode?” He says “I would guess” she says “just because there was no phone activity doesn’t mean it was in airplane mode?” He says “yes”

Lauren Scharf
@LaurenScharfTV
Defense exhibit FF: Information about Airplane Mode that investigators showed to #BarryMorphew.

Carol McKinley
@CarolAMcKinley
Nielson says a worker reported Barry came into a spa store between 4 & 530 on May 9th to inquire about fixing their hot tub. This destroys Grusing's theory that BM was home freaking out after doing "something horrible" to #SuzanneMorphew. Grusing believes she got her time wrong.

Lauren Scharf
@LaurenScharfTV
Neilsen said, the first May 9 event is at 6:46 am start time airplane mode off event may have been triggered by something. According to CAST report, could be mean that he is coming out of an area with poor service.

Lauren Scharf
@LaurenScharfTV
Defense Attorney Neilsen is poking holes into Agent Grusings evidence of when #BarryMorphew put his cell phone on airplane mode on and off. Which is mentioned in the sealed arrest affidavit.

Lauren Scharf
@LaurenScharfTV
Verizon records show #BarryMorphew cell phone at 7:19 a.m. on May 9 receiving a signal. Neilsen asked, "Can a phone receive a signal in airplane mode?" Grusing said, "I don't know."

Lauren Scharf

Ashley Franco
@AshleyKKTV
Prosecution says they still have witnesses to still call, only 3 have been called. He believes those 3 are the “meat and potatoes” for this hearing BUT still would like to call other witnesses. He says defense is taking too long and he doesn’t know if it’ll be done in 4 days

Ashley Franco
@AshleyKKTV
Judge says he’s going to keep defense tight on time because they’re taking fairly longer than the prosecution. Judge is worried this won’t be done in 4 total days. Defense says they understand they have to be shorter.

Article on Anne Kelly the DA in the 12th

"Kelly, when she landed in the 12th Judicial District, noticed the “alarming theme” of a lack of prosecution for domestic violence cases. She said that things are improving, but the mere fact that domestic violence cases were being dismissed prior to her taking office was and still is alarming. The effects of it, she said, are still being seen.

But prosecuting domestic violence cases and domestic abusers remains a passion of hers. “When you’re dealing with coercive, controlling, violent offenders in relationships they are particularly dangerous,” she said. "
