    I think the DA said a lot while saying nothing. She said it’s a happy day for Suzanne....that the day should be all about Suzanne.

    Agree - those photos bother me too.

    Especially the tone.

    I'm glad that another Mother's Day didn't go by for her family with no answers. I think it's impressive how quiet they've kept this investigation, based on the DA's remarks about how extensive it was.

    (Re: today’s video coverage, I can’t help but notice (again) how stunningly beautiful Suzanne is (was).)

    A summary of the presser so far....

    0915 Chaffee office arrested BM in Ponza Springs, he was alone and arrested without incident

    1000’s of hours spent

    135 SW across CO, interviewed more than 400 individuals and over 1400 tips

    Early April investigative work presented to DA’s office and they outlined all of the evidence

    DA’s office reviewed the case and they decided to move forward

    People wanted answers and justice for SM

    Every action investigators took led to today’s arrest

    CBI, FBI, 11th Judicial DA Linda Stanley and her office part of investigation

    DA Linda Stanley speaks

    Investigation is still ongoing

    SM’s body has not been found

    BM presumed innocent until proven guilty

    AA sealed

    Media inquiries should go through her office, cannot talk about any open or active investigation

    “Today is a good day” investigators worked day in and day out, were second guessed, but they never quit

    Sheriff Spezze and Alex Walker some of the best she has ever worked with. Followed every lead and never compromised integrity of investigation

    Sworn in Jan 12th and she met with the and went through hours and hours of their meticulous investigation

    The work begins today, more work to be done and it is an important and incredibly crucial step

    Today is about SM and her family and about everyone who loved and cared about her

    and then my internet crapped out....:(

    ETA this is a summary and not a transcript, please excuse any oversights or errors

    DA said that "today would not have happened if I didn't have a strong case."
    sigh...

    Although she won’t tell us anything more, the DA suggests she is very confident in the charges. My goodness what have they found?!

    Me too! My partner and I thought she is exactly the person we’d picture being the DA in Salida. And she is not happy about folks second-guessing investigators. A strong, no-nonsense mountain woman.

    Barry lawyered up immediately. Mugshot to follow. Nobody else involved.

    The AA is still sealed. I don't think we're going to get many answers at this point.

    Doesn't sound like there was a big new piece of evidence that prompted this though, more like they just felt they'd assembled enough evidence to charge (and the case was presented to the DA in April).

    And they don't expect to make any more arrests in this case.

    So they don’t have the official cause of death (obviously) but they have a theory of what happened based on the evidence they have but that could change as they discover more. I’m impressed! I wonder how strong the evidence is.

    Who's got the mugshot?!

    I'm celebrating, but also feeling immense sadness for all involved. At least we are on our way to some justice. :(

    Total speculation of course but, who did Barry talk on the phone with on his way to "the scene" of Suzanne's obviously staged bike?

    Wasn't he also a volunteer FF? Would he be considered a "public official"? The legal docs say the crime occured on May 10, 2020 so... is it possible GD's interview with LE lead to this charge?
