    I agree, you see this a lot. We hear about some offenders being difficult and abusive people but many can compartmentalize and are sweet to their own families. If you lived 20 years and every experience you had with your dad, day in and day out, was positive and loving - it is very hard to think that same person could be a monster. It is easy for us because we come in after the crime is committed and look with a critical lens. But when you have a genuine attachment, it is hard to sever that. In some people denial takes over as a defense mechanism - it is easier to believe the unbelievable than think your loved one is evil. As long as they do not interfere with the investigation or prosecution I try to ignore any family because there's no real good answer for them. Human emotions are too complicated.

    Can anyone help? I asked these questions yesterday that I haven't found the answers to .....
    1. the daughters were on a camping trip and asked the neighbor to check on their mom whom they hadn't heard from. The neighbor is the one who reported her missing after she checked up on her and said she didn't come back from a bike trip. So did the neighbor see her leave for the supposed bike trip? I thought I read that she hadn't been seen by anyone for days prior to Mother's Day so how did the neighbor see her? I'm guessing she just went off of what she was told???
    2. I read (I think here) that two people connected to BM gave someone a note saying she didn't have to answer any questions from LE. Who was that?

    Has it been established that this information did in fact come straight from Barry?

    That place compared to his home with Suzanne?
    Looks like he was hiding/working/ stockpiling money.
    I bet LE has followed his earnings & real estate monies to exactly where they landed.
    This guy. They all think they are smarter that LE and a jury.

    MOO

    Q1. No, the neighbor did not see Suzanne leave on a bike trip. It was BM himself that implied if she's not there, and her car is, then surely she must be out on a bike ride. He is where that story came from - no one ever saw Suzanne on her bike on Mother's Day Sunday.

    Q2. A friend and a relative of BM, (GD and TN) approached MG, a contractor that worked with BM, and suggested to her she didn't have to cooperate with LE on this.

    I'm sure I saw this here yesterday but now I can't seem to locate it.
    Lauren Scharf either tweeted or posted on her FB, that the young red-headed woman Barry's been seen with in town, is actually a friend of Suzanne's.
    Can someone point me back to that post of LS?

    It came from the Nancy Grace podcast.

    IIRC, she is a friend of Suzanne's who came to town to confront Barry.

    I think they should be protected, too. I was just responding to the article by the DM that stated one daughter was a minor. I thought it was reported last year at this time that the youngest was 17. And yes, I'm sure they are traumatized by the loss of their mother and their father's arrest. I hope they will eventually feel comfortable reaching out to Suzanne's family. They will need all the emotional support they can get.

    On your first question, no one saw Suzanne leave on a bike.
    On your 2nd question, I don’t think I’ve heard anything about a note being given to anyone. Are you talking about 2 guys approaching one of Barry’s employees and saying as they handed her a paycheck that they didn’t want it to appear that it was hush money? That was Morgan Gentile.

    So said red headed woman seen with BM came to town to confront BM? That was a serious degree of risk on her part. Curious what the discussion between said woman and the Deputies was about. How ironic would it be if BM had called LE to report her for making "terroristic threats"?

    One tidbit -- I believe that in some rural/remote areas, the same attorneys who serve as [contract] public defenders may also be hired to defend those who can afford to pay.

    I'm almost certain that's how it works in my county (which is rural and remote but not in Colorado).

    So we may not be able to determine simply by the name of the defending attorney whether BM is paying or whether he has [eventually] qualified for a public defender.

    Maybe one of the locals knows whether this is a possibility in Chaffee County?

    Is it incorrect reporting (supposition) that Suzanne was 'last seen' on the bike ride?
    Just wondering, as I have seen it reported in several Colorado media articles.

    She was last seen leaving her Salida home for a bike ride on Mother's Day.
    Suzanne Morphew went missing 8 months ago | 9news.com

    She had last been seen leaving on a bike ride from her home in Maysville

    Good post. BM could have always been positive and loving towards his daughters and that's their experience with him. We, the public, are introduced to this family only after tragedy strikes. Someone mentioned in a post (IIRC) something along the lines they hope the girls sit through his trial and hear all the evidence. There's a part of me that hopes they don't. I don't feel they need to hear the gruesome details to ensure they end up hating their dad and never talking to him again. I felt the same when they were criticized for not helping in Andy's search to find their mom. I wish no family to see the remains of a loved one like that or to feel the reality of what you're looking for (a deceased loved ones body). I personally just can't get upset about the girls standing by their dad and your bolded statement above sums it up perfectly. IMO

    I watched the Jay stream as well. A lot was on there-it was streaming long before proceedings began, while they were setting up and figuring out where to sit etc. Side note, there has to be a function where all viewers are on mute, and the organizer unmutes particular individuals involved in the process. We do it all day for meetings. I did not see any blood family in the courtroom other than daughters.

    I am hoping Lauren is able to address the mystery redhead rumors. I think she has been pretty widely identified, and I think the truth may lie somewhere between a confronting friend and Barry’s new squeeze. I am giving her the benefit of the doubt. Waiting for others to come out of the woodwork.
