    Barry is slouching to the left, resting his hand on his face with his pointer finger pointing up. Any body language experts out there???

    I, on the other hand, see PLENTY of evidence to convict.
    Fasten your seat belts, it's going to be a bumpy night.

    since, according to Barry, everybody in Chaffee County hates him....can we expect a request for change of venue after this is referred to trial?

    It’s starting to sound as if Suzanne was not outdoors when Barry got home. The bikini that she had on in the sunbathing photo was in the closet. The closet inside the master bedroom that looked like there was forced entry into. The one with the unspent 22 shell. Maybe Barry was the one sleeping in Mallory’s room.

    Got a seat inside the courtroom. Waiting for everyone to get their seats. Barry’s attorneys and the state attorneys are all present. Barry is not here yet. #BarryMorphew

    Lauren Scharf
    @LaurenScharfTV
    I am seated in the courtroom. The defense is seated differently today, they have more people with them (Dru Nielsen, Iris Eytan +3). #BarryMorphew has not been seated yet. ALL 3 witnesses who have been called to testify already are seated behind the prosecution table.

    Crime Talk with Scott Reisch
    @CrimeTalkPod
    Barry walks in. Mask below nose. Nods at attorneys. Nielsen rubs his arm. Barry seems to be holding folders.
    Lauren Scharf
    @LaurenScharfTV
    #BarryMorphew just walked into the courtroom wearing a grey suit and was holding an orange envelope and other papers. NEW: A sign in the courtroom that reads, "There is to be no communication between the persons in the gallery (visitors in the courtroom) and defendants.

    Crime Talk with Scott Reisch
    @CrimeTalkPod
    There’s a new sign hanging in the courtroom. On Barry’s side, printed on a regular piece of paper: “THERE IS TO BE NO COMMUNICATION BETWEEN THE PERSONS IN THE GALLERY AND DEFENDANTS” #BarryMorphew

    Lauren Scharf
    @LaurenScharfTV
    Judge just walked in!... Here we go with Day 3 of #BarryMorphew Preliminary hearing.

    Jamie Leary
    @JamieALeary
    Preliminary hearing for #BarryMorphew continues this morning- his family, including daughters and mother said a quick prayer just before he walked in carrying an arm full of documents. Testimony continues through Tuesday. @cbsenver #SuzanneMorphew

    Lauren Scharf
    @LaurenScharfTV
    Former Agent Johnny Grusing is taking the stand again. #BarryMorphew attorney Dru Nielsen is asking about him shooting chipmunks.

    Ashley Franco
    @AshleyKKTV
    We are back in court for the second half of the preliminary hearing for #BarryMorpehw. Testimony starts off with Johnathon Grusing. Follow this thread for updates on the day.

    Lauren Scharf
    @LaurenScharfTV
    Feb. 28, 2021 interview: "When I'm home I walk around and shoot chipmunks." We are hearing audio from an interview with LE. Nielsen wanted to make it clear that #BarryMorphew didn't shoot 85 chipmunks all at once

    Ashley Franco
    @AshleyKKTV
    Dru Nielsen starts off asking about trash runs. You'll recall #BarryMorphew took 5 trash runs. Neilsen says he was just throwing away junk-- Grusing says yes he believes that's what Barry told them.
    @KKTV11News
    Stephanie (Butzer) Rose
    @stephaniebutzer
    Court has started with a continuation of the cross-examination of retired FBI Agent Jonny Grusin by Defense Attorney Dru Nielsen.
    Nielsen asks about the five trash runs Barry allegedly made on Mother's Day 2020. (Prosecution brought this up previously: http://bit.ly/3B2OUA5)

    Ashley Franco
    @AshleyKKTV
    Nielsen says there isn't photo evidence of #BarryMorphew physically throwing away trash five different times at all locations, including the hotel.
    @KKTV11News
    #SuzanneMorphew

    Lauren Scharf
    @LaurenScharfTV
    Nielsen is talking about what #BarryMorphew allegedly threw away at the trash runs. Made it known there were no pictures or video of him throwing away things at the Broomfield bus stop

    Ashley Franco
    @AshleyKKTV
    Nielsen says #BarryMorphew told investigators he had old boots, old clothes, and trash in his truck that he could have thrown away during some of the runs as to clean out his truck.
    @KKTV11News
    #SuzanneMorphe

    Stephanie (Butzer) Rose
    @stephaniebutzer
    Grusin confirms Barry threw away "junk" at first stop in Broomfield, which was at a bus stop. There are no photos/videos of Barry here. There are visible cameras

    Lauren Scharf
    @LaurenScharfTV
    Trash run #3 is the first time investigators have photos or video of #BarryMorphew throwing away items. "I am a tightwad and I don't want to pay for trash pick up." He allegedly told investigators. "I work so much where my truck becomes a trash truck

    Ashley Franco
    @AshleyKKTV
    #BarryMorphew told investigators he works so much that "his truck becomes a trash truck" and any time he gets a chance to clean it he does. @KKTV11News



    Crime Talk with Scott Reisch
    @CrimeTalkPod
    Barry walks across lobby carrying boots and a blue garment. He also has a backpack on.
    Nielsen: If he was hiding something, he would have just put those in the backpack, right?

    Stephanie (Butzer) Rose
    @stephaniebutzer
    Second stop was at a hotel. Grusin confirms Barry said he was waiting for somebody to let him in so he could get a free breakfast. The exit/entrance to the hotel has trash can near it. Barry never said he threw trash away here, Grusin confirms.

    Lauren Scharf
    @LaurenScharfTV
    Investigators don't have photos or videos from the Men's Wearhouse trash run. The plastic tree pot #BarryMorphew allegedly threw away at the hotel is one similar to the one he buys at a nursery in Salida

    Crime Talk with Scott Reisch
    @CrimeTalkPod
    Nielsen asking about the trash runs. There is no video or photo from trash runs at RTD bus stop, McDonald’s, or Men’s Warehouse.
    There are, however, dozens of cameras outside the hotel

    Ashley Franco
    @AshleyKKTV
    Nielsen says #BarryMorphew never remembered what he threw away because it was just junk in his truck. One of which investigators found to be a tree pot similar to ones purchased at a nursery in Salida.
    @KKTV11News

    Crime Talk with Scott Reisch
    @CrimeTalkPod
    Nielsen: He drove evidence of a murder from rural Salida to Broomfield where he was going to stay for 2 days?
    Grusing: well not necessarily

    Stephanie (Butzer) Rose
    @stephaniebutzer
    Third stop: Barry said he was getting trash out of his truck at a McDonald's, but didn't eat there. Surveillance footage captured him throwing away trash here (first time we actually see him throw away anything), Nielsen says

    Ashley Franco
    @AshleyKKTV
    Nielsen says to Grusing: Your theory is that #BarryMorphew drove to Broomfield to dispose of evidence from a murder. Grusing says "yes" Nielsen fires back saying, "you think he did this in plain daylight, plain sight with surveillance cameras?"
    @KKTV11News

    Lauren Scharf
    @LaurenScharfTV
    Nielsen is now wanting to compare data from the Cellebrite PDF report and the BERLA report. This is data from #BarryMorphew truck and cell phone

    Stephanie (Butzer) Rose
    @stephaniebutzer
    Barry said he is a "tightwad" and doesn't want to pay to throw out trash.
    He allegedly said, "I work so much that my truck becomes a trash truck and when I finally get a moment to throw some things away, I do that."

    Stephanie (Butzer) Rose
    @stephaniebutzer
    Fourth stop was a Men's Warehouse. Barry said to his knowledge, he didn't take anything to a dumpster there. There are no photos/videos from here of him throwing anything out, Grusin confirms.

    Stephanie (Butzer) Rose
    @stephaniebutzer
    Fifth stop came after Barry had gone to his worksite, Nielsen says. He is seen slowly walking across a parking lot at a Holiday Inn past several visible surveillance cameras & signs about them. Enhanced photos show he threw out some items including a plastic tree pot

    Ashley Franco
    @AshleyKKTV
    Now talking about calls made from #BarryMorphew truck to several people- Mallory, #SuzanneMorphew, and Martin Riter. Prosecution asks if it's possible for Barry's bluetooth to pick up without being in his truck. Grusing says yes.

    Stephanie (Butzer) Rose
    @stephaniebutzer
    Nielsen asks if Grusin's theory is that Barry drove from Salida to Broomfield carrying evidence of a murder.
    "Yes," Grusin responds

    Lauren Scharf
    @LaurenScharfTV
    Nielsen is showing that #BarryMorphew was in his truck when he made numerous calls on Sunday, May 10 in Broomfield. The state is saying that his phone could still be synced to his truck when he isn't in the truck like when he was inside his hotel room & truck parked nearby
    Ashley Franco
    @AshleyKKTV
    Now turning to the cap to a tranquilizer dart found in the dryer at the Morphew home. Nielsen pulls out a box of darts to show Agent Grusing. Nielsen pulls out a dart from the box and shows agent that the dart itself did not have a cap on it.
    @KKTV11News
    #suzannemorphew

    Lauren Scharf
    @LaurenScharfTV
    Tranquilizer DART CAP: It is the photo of what is found in the dryer. Nielsen is showing the courtroom brand new darts in a package unopened to Agent Grusing. He said it is the same but doesn't have a cap on it.

    Crime Talk with Scott Reisch
    @CrimeTalkPod
    Tranquilizer dart cap:
    Photo of what was found in the dryer handed to Grusing
    Nielsen pulls out a box of new darts. Grusing says they are the same as what is in the pictures
    Nielsen: Does this have a cap on it?

    Crime Talk with Scott Reisch
    @CrimeTalkPod
    Grusing: it does not
    Nielsen: the dart itself doesn’t have a cap on it?
    Grusing: Not in that package, no

    Stephanie (Butzer) Rose
    @stephaniebutzer
    They're going over calls Barry made from his car and comparing Cellebrite PDF report to BERLA (records car data).
    His phone could have synced with his car if he was in a hotel and close enough to the vehicle, defense says

    Crime Talk with Scott Reisch
    @CrimeTalkPod
    Nielsen: (paraphrased) The needle is what is used to inject a dart with tranquilizer. A needle is not a tranquilizer dart. What was found in the dryer is not a tranquilizer dart cap. The one found in Barry’s garage was empty. The darts don’t come with any fluid in them

    Lauren Scharf
    @LaurenScharfTV
    Dart doesn't come with fluid or chemicals in them. You have to buy that separately. Nielsen is showing how someone has to inject into the dart the chemicals.
    Ashley Franco
    @AshleyKKTV
    Nielsen argues the cap found in the dryer was not from a tranquilizer dart but from the needle used to inject the dart with chemicals. She asks Agent Grusing about this- he affirms that she is correct in saying they did not technically find a tranquilizer dart cap.
    @KKTV11News

    Lauren Scharf
    @LaurenScharfTV
    The language of the "tranquilizer dart cap" wasn't accurate. They are discussing this. Nielsen is going over the tranquilizer manual about how to fill the dart

    Ashley Franco
    @AshleyKKTV
    Nielsen now going through the instructions on how to fill the tranquilizer dart.
    @KKTV11News
    #BarryMorphew #SuzanneMorphew

    Ashley Franco
    @AshleyKKTV
    She continues by saying LE found empty tranquilizer darts but no tranquilizer chemical at the house.
    @KKTV11News #BarryMorphew #SuzanneMorphew

    Lauren Scharf
    @LaurenScharfTV
    LE found empty tranquilizer darts but no chemicals or vials of the chemicals at the home. "I don't recall having any left," #BarryMorphew told investigators.

    Lauren Scharf
    @LaurenScharfTV
    The plastic cap wasn't found until May 19. Investigators don't know how the cap got into the
    dryer and how long it had been there. There was 2 DNA mixture on the cap, #BarryMorphew DNA was excluded.

    Jamie Leary
    @JamieALeary
    Defense team brings in box of tranquilizer darts- similar to dart kit found in garage of #BarryMorphew. She takes one out to show what it looks like, talking about how it was cap to needle of dart, w/ DNA mix of 2. Not one is BM. Says no tranq chemical found at house

    Ashley Franco
    @AshleyKKTV
    Agent Grusing says #BarryMorphew told him he could have thrown some chemical away but he does not remember. He says the cap in the dryer had nothing to do with him. The tranquilizer gun found in the garage did not work according to law enforcement.
    @KKTV11News

    Crime Talk with Scott Reisch
    @CrimeTalkPod
    Empty darts-but no tranquilizer chemicals found by investigators. Barry said “I don’t recall
    having any left”. Grusing asked Barry if tranquilizer could have been part of the work bench he cleaned off. Barry said he has no idea how the cap got in the dryer

    Crime Talk with Scott Reisch
    @CrimeTalkPod
    The plastic cap was not found until May 19, 2020. Nielsen: you can’t say how many days it was in the dryer and how it got there.
    Nielsen: Barry was excluded from DNA on the cap
    No darts found inside the home, or outside the home. Only empty vessels found inside the garage

    Lauren Scharf
    @LaurenScharfTV
    Empty vessels of the tranquilizer darts were found in the garage. The tranquilizer gun didn't work, according to Nielsen.

    NEW: Barry Morphew's attorney is attacking the trash runs and the tranquilizer cap found in the dryer of the Morphew home 9 days after #SuzanneMorphew went missing. We are in the 3rd day of a four day preliminary hearing/proof evident presumption great hearing. #BarryMorphew 's

    Stephanie (Butzer) Rose
    @stephaniebutzer
    Nielsen brings up photo of a tranquilizer dart cap found in the dryer on May 19. Barry said he was not sure how long it had been there and it had nothing to do with him.
    Court briefly discussed that calling it a tranquilizer dart "cap," wasn't totally accurate.

    Carol McKinley

    Stephanie (Butzer) Rose
    @stephaniebutzer
    Nielsen asks Grusin: You can't say how long that cap had been in there?
    Grusin says, "Correct." Barry was excluded with DNA from that cap.

    #SuzanneMorphew had been at Gene Ritter's home (neighbor) for coffee from 9 a.m. -11 a.m. on May 6, 2020. During the time of "I'm done" text was sent to #BarryMorphew.

    Stephanie (Butzer) Rose
    @stephaniebutzer
    Some empty vessels of the darts were found in the garage. A tranquilizer gun also in the garage did not work. There were no other darts found inside/outside the Morphew home, Nielsen said
    Ashley Franco
    @AshleyKKTV
    Nielsen talking about text from #SuzanneMorphew on May 6th saying "I'm done." She says this text could have been Suzanne telling #BarryMorphew that she was done with coffee at neighbors. Nielsen says after this date there were several calls and texts between the two

    Stephanie (Butzer) Rose
    @stephaniebutzer
    Now going to May 6, 2020.
    This was the day Suzanne said her relationship with Barry was "done." She met with neighbor Jeanne Ritter for coffee 9-11 a.m. Ritter said Suzanne seemed "energetic" and "excited."

    Ashley Franco
    @AshleyKKTV
    Nielsen says the texts were about the two hanging out and what Nielsen calls "cordial" messages between the two after the "I'm done" texts.
    @KKTV11News
    #BarryMorphew #SuzanneMorphew

    Stephanie (Butzer) Rose
    @stephaniebutzer
    Now going over some texts and calls between Suzanne and Barry on May 7 & 8.
    May 8: Suzanne's phone received a notice about a Facebook reset code. She friended multiple men that night.
    Defense brings up a few texts between Barry & Suzanne, and Suzanne & Jeff Libler from May 9.

    Carol McKinley
    @CarolAMcKinley
    Inside the courtroom, we are going over Suzanne's last moments.

    Crime Talk with Scott Reisch
    @CrimeTalkPod
    Nielsen is confirming the timeline again with Grusing. Judge asks to speed this up since this has already been determined. Barry sits as still in his seat the whole time so far.

    Lauren Scharf
    @LaurenScharfTV
    Nielsen is going over the timeline of events with Grusing, according to text messages, FB messages, truck data. The state is telling the judge that Agent Grusing didn't go over the text messages between #barrymorphew and Suzanne. The judge allows the timeline to continue

    Stephanie (Butzer) Rose
    @stephaniebutzer
    Suzanne and Jeff also messaged via LinkedIn, as we learned earlier in this hearing. The last LinkedIn message from Suzanne to him came at 2:07 p.m. May 9, Nielsen said. About 35 min later, Barry arrived home.

    Ashley Franco
    @AshleyKKTV
    Nielsen turning to May 10that 3:58 am #BarryMorphew phone allegedly near where #SuzanneMorphew bike was found. But Nielsen says it is possible static drift interfered. She says this is when GPS measurements move when the phone is actually not moving. Grusing agrees.
    @KKTV11News

    Crime Talk with Scott Reisch
    @CrimeTalkPod
    Jeff Lindsey :
    What is your theory of the missing 18 miles
    Barry turned left instead of right on highway 50 on May 10. Agents met with Barry and asked him which way he turned. Right - salida and Broomfield
    Left - where the helmet would he dropped

    Crime Talk with Scott Reisch
    @CrimeTalkPod
    March 2021 - Barry says he turned left. He said he saw elk/elk antlers and wanted to follow it.

    Ashley Franco
    @AshleyKKTV
    The prosecution is in re-direct now. Starting off with the morning of May 10th. #BarryMorphew was tracked turning left onto HWY 50 close to where #SuzanneMorphew helmet was found. He admitted turning left to agents. Right turn would take him to Broomfield and Salida.
    @KKTV11News

    Lauren Scharf
    @LaurenScharfTV
    Grusing was asked about the 18-19 miles that were missing from #Barrymorphew odometer in his truck. Nielsen is talking about where Salida Stove and Spa is located and asked if it is a coincidence if the location to the spa is the same amount of missing miles, "No," Grusing said.

    Carol McKinley
    @CarolAMcKinley
    Talk now in redirect over whether #BarryMorphew turned right toward Salida or left toward the mountains on the morning of May 10th, 2020. Morphew said he turned left away from Salida to follow a bull elk to see when it sheds its horns.

    Lauren Scharf
    @LaurenScharfTV
    The state is redirecting questions. Agent Grusing says when they asked #BarryMorphew if he turned left or right on Hwy 50 when he left the morning of May 10, Barry allegedly said left in an interview in March 2021.

    Stephanie (Butzer) Rose
    @stephaniebutzer
    Now we're on to the redirect with DA Jeff Lindsey.
    May 10 morning: Barry turned left instead of right (right = direction of Salida & Broomfield) on Hwy 50.

    Stephanie (Butzer) Rose
    @stephaniebutzer
    Grusing says Barry told him it was b/c he saw elk and wanted to see if they were shedding antlers. Barry said he went to Garfield turnaround and then onto Salida. Barry told Grusing this may have been around 4:30 a.m.

    Lauren Scharf
    @LaurenScharfTV
    Grusing said if he turned right he would be heading towards Salida and Broomfield and if he turned left it would take him to where the helmet was found near Hwy 50 in Chaffee County.
    #BarryMorphew prelim hearing day 3.

    Lauren Scharf
    @LaurenScharfTV
    #BarryMorphew also told investigators that he had seen a bull elk and a herd of elk crossing the street and wanted to see when they would be shedding their antlers (reason why he turned left, according to Grusing).

    Stephanie (Butzer) Rose
    @stephaniebutzer
    Going left would have taken him in the direction of where Suzanne's helmet was found.

    Lauren Scharf
    @LaurenScharfTV
    12:02 a.m. and 12:17 a.m. incoming/outgoing calls the morning of May 10, 2020 on #SuzanneMorphew phone. Agent Grusing said according to Verizon there were no calls or text messages during this time. The LAST REGISTERED CALL from Suzanne phone was on May 9 in the afternoon

    Jamie Leary
    @JamieALeary
    Prosecution: From May 9th into May 10th of 2020, the 6 hour period when phone of #BarryMorphew is in airplane mode, is that enough time to dispose of a body? Investigator: "Yes." @CBSDenver
    Lauren Scharf
    @LaurenScharfTV
    Agent Grusing is talking about when #BarryMorphew could have had time to dispose of a body on May 9 into 10. He told the judge Morphew had six hours to dispose of a body which could mean at least a 3 hour round trip

    Ashley Franco
    @AshleyKKTV
    Back to the trash runs. Agent Grusing says #BarryMorphew never told them exactly what he threw away. Grusing says at the McDonalds run there possibly could have been two trash runs, but in photos you can not see what is thrown away.

    Prosecution asks Grusing if it's possible #BarryMorphew was throwing away a vial of tranquilizer chemicals. Grusing says there's no telling because you can't see.

    Investigator clarifies, in dryer, it was a needle sheath for a tranq dart gun- not a "dart cap". He says #BarryMorphew said he shoots deer w/ the tranq gun so he can gets their horns. Says he shot 2 deer, just for horns, in 4/2020. They wake up w/ no horns and run off.

    @LaurenScharfTV
    Grusing is answering questions about #BarryMorphew talking about shooting chipmunks around the home on May 9. "I shoot chipmunks. So when I am home I go around the house and when I see another I’ll shoot it," Barry had said in an interview allegedly shot the chipmunks with a 22.

    DA Lindsey: A drive from Salida to Broomfield is ~3 hours. Barry's phone was in airplane mode from 10:17 p.m. May 9 - 4:30 a.m. May 10. Is that enough time to dispose of a body if driving from Puma Path to Broomfield?
    "It is," Grusing says

    Lauren Scharf
    @LaurenScharfTV
    #BarryMorphew allegedly told investigators that he last used his tranquilizer gun to shoot a deer in late April of 2020 to get their horn. "I’m telling you, telling you right now... to get horns. They go to sleep, I remove their horns. They go off with no horns on their head.”

    Allegedly shooting the deer with the tranquilizer gun either in the garage or breezeway.

    Is it possible Barry was tracking Suzanne?
    Grusing: yes
    Is it possible Barry texted Suzanne at 11am on May 9 that he was coming home and the texts were deleted?
    Grusing: yes

    Stephanie (Butzer) Rose
    @stephaniebutzer
    Regarding the trash runs, DA Lindsey confirms the "cap" found in the dryer was a needle sheath.
    When asked about the dart, Barry said he shoots deer from his garage/breezeway. He said he last used it April 2020.

    Lauren Scharf
    @LaurenScharfTV
    From May 5-9, 2020 the FBI said they could NOT get everything off of #BarryMorphew phone that he had deleted. The state asked, "Is it possible if Barry could have been tracking Suzanne?" Agent Grusing said, "Yes."

    FBI Agent Jonny Grusing on the stand says #BarryMorphew would have had time to dispose of a human body on May 9th into the morning of the 10th while his phone was in airplane mode from 10:17-430 am. That is 6 hours

    Between May 5 and 9, messages were deleted off Barry's phone. Some were not recovered, but the "I'm done" text was retrieved.
    Grusing confirms that it is possible Barry was tracking Suzanne. There was an objection to this in court, but judge overruled.

    Lauren Scharf
    @LaurenScharfTV
    On May 8, #BarryMorphew allegedly brought up moving to Arizona. Grusing said this was the first time this was ever mentioned and Suzanne thought it was strange. She was looking at homes for sale in Salida, CO according to text messages.

    @AshleyKKTV
    Agents asked #BarryMorphew about tranquilizer needle sheath in dryer at Morphew residence. He again says it has nothing to do with him but he hates that it was found there because it "makes him look bad" and rumors are spreading in Chaffee County so "no wonder people hate me"

    Crime Talk with Scott Reisch
    @CrimeTalkPod
    Needle sheath (tranquilizer gun): Barry says: See, I think this makes me look bad. No wonder people in Chaffee county hate me. This makes me look so bad.
    (This triggers a few groans and eye rolls from the public)

    Lauren Scharf
    @LaurenScharfTV
    So the tranquilizer dart cap was actually a tranquilizer needle sheath found in the dryer which is a disposable needle recapping device. #BarryMorphew told investigators, "I don't know how that got there... it had nothing to do with me."

    Carol McKinley
    @CarolAMcKinley
    After so much discussion about a dart cap found in the dryer vent, it turns out it was a "needle sheath." Grusing's early mistake. When asked about it, #BarryMorphew said "‘I have no idea how it got there. It could have been in the wash but it’s got nothing to do with me...But ..
