    When she married #BarryMorphew it was a marriage for life, according to Barry.

    #BarryMorphew asked for immunity if he just sat down and opened his life up to the FBI agents. Grusing believes Barry meant that if he disclosed things to agents, he wouldn’t be prosecuted for suzannes disappearance and death.

    #BarryMorphew said he was 100% faithful to #SuzanneMorphew during their marriage. No infidelity.

    June 2020 #BarryMorphew said because of #SuzanneMorphew relationship with God there is no way she would be unfaithful. @KKTV11News

    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

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

    @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
    @CarolAMcKinley
    daughters, mom and sister are in the courtroom. Suzanne's family (at least brother and sister) is listening on Webex. More media here than before. Wraps up tomorrow, 8/24.

    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.

    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.

    Ashley Franco
    @AshleyKKTV
    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.

    Jamie Leary
    @JamieALeary
    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.

    Lauren Scharf
    @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.

    Stephanie (Butzer) Rose
    @stephaniebutzer
    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.”

    Lauren Scharf
    @LaurenScharfTV
    Allegedly shooting the deer with the tranquilizer gun either in the garage or breezeway.

    Crime Talk with Scott Reisch
    @CrimeTalkPod
    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."

    Crime Talk with Scott Reisch

    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"

    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 ..

    Carol McKinley
    @CarolAMcKinley
    see i hate that beause you know that makes me look bad. But if it’s leaking from Chaffee county, it’s no wonder people in this town hate me. That’s just not right.”

    Regarding the needle sheath in the dryer, Barry told Grusing: "It could have been in the wash but it's got nothing to do with me... But see, I hate that because you know that makes me look bad. But if it's leaking from Chaffee Co., it's no wonder ppl in this town hate me."

    Lauren Scharf
    @LaurenScharfTV
    Handlebars were twisted 180 degrees. Can be called "ghost riding," this is seen with kids when they push a bike the tires want to turn. If the bike had been wrecked the mechanic said the handlebars and bike seat would not be centered but that wasn't the case here.


    Ashley Franco
    @AshleyKKTV

    Iris Eytan, Morphew's attorney, points out #suzannemorphew texted a selfie of her in a bikini to her lover, Jeffrey Libler, on Sat afternoon May 10th. One of her last texts. That bikini had no blood or tears on it when it was seen in the master BR closet the next night

    Lauren Scharf
    @LaurenScharfTV
    The bikini wasn't collected as evidence. In the photo of #SuzanneMorphew sunbathing, you can only see a small portion of the bikini strap so can't tell if it had been torn or any of the photos from the closet, according to the undersheriff.

    Ashley Franco

    Defense asks Undersheriff about surveillance at a Loaf 'n Jug with car that looks like #SuzanneMorphew car. Undersheriff says he disagrees. Defense says he didn't put that in report. He says a different person did the report and he disagrees. Defense says he changed his mind.


    Ashley Franco

    He continues to re-iterate that he did not write the report. She fights back saying he never put in his report that he disputed the claims of the deputy who did the report. She asks "did you change your mind because it doesn't line up with the murder timeline?"

    @CarolAMcKinley
    Defense and prosecution are both scoring points today. Morphew turns,smiles at family with eyes over his mask every chance he can. At times he & his attorneys exchange yellow sticky notes. Moonlight Pizza delivered food at lunch. That’s the place The Morphew’s liked to eat.

    @DenverChannel
    The Chaffee County undersheriff said investigators found an unspent .22-caliber shell on Suzanne Morphew’s side of her bed, along with a Bible and other books. The third day of Barry Morphew’s preliminary hearing continues

    @LaurenScharfTV
    Back on the record: Undersheriff Andy Rohrich is on the stand. #BarryMorphew took off his suit jacket and rolled up his sleeves. He tucked in his shirt when the judge entered the courtroom

    Ashley Franco
    @AshleyKKTV
    Back from lunchbreak. We'll start off continuing with cross-examination of Undersheriff Rohrich. @KKTV11News #BarryMorphew #SuzanneMorphew

    Lauren Scharf
    @LaurenScharfTV
    Eytan is asking him about the sleeping bag found near #SuzanneMorphew bike. It wasn't tested for DNA. Undersheriff Rohrich suggested it could have flown out a bed of a truck.

    Ashley Franco
    @AshleyKKTV
    Undersheriff says #BarryMorphew DNA was on the bike, but he was not sure where. Defense says Chaffee County Deputies had DNA on the bike too. Defense says only place Barry DNA was was on the bike seat. Undersheriff says he's not sure where it was found.
    @KKTV11News

    Lauren Scharf
    @LaurenScharfTV
    #SuzanneMorphew bike had DNA of #BarryMorphew but not on the handlebars. Rohrich keeps telling Eytan that he doesn't know where on the bike that Morphews DNA was located.



    Lauren Scharf
    @LaurenScharfTV
    Eytan is showing the body cam video of #BarryMorphew touching the bike. She says he was touching the back of the bike near the seat and Rohrich is saying you can't see from this angle because there is another person in front of Barry.

    Ashley Franco
    @AshleyKKTV
    Defense now asking about injuries on #BarryMorphew left arm. They're talking about three small cuts on his arm. Defense argues that there were only two marks and the third was a healing cut- the Undersheriff says he disagrees.
    @KKTV11News

    Lauren Scharf
    @LaurenScharfTV
    now they are discussing the marks on #BarryMorphew marks on his hands and arm. Eytan wants to know the measurements and Rohrich doesn't know because he said he didn't measure the three markings (fingernail injuries he had testified to).

    Eytan is visibly annoyed

    Lauren Scharf
    @LaurenScharfTV
    Eytan said when people disappear they don't always use their identification so if #SuzanneMorphew disappeared she wouldn't use her ID. When referring to Suzanne leaving her purse in the car

    Lauren Scharf
    @LaurenScharfTV
    Suzanne's cell phone was not found in the investigation. Her phone charger was not at the home either which would have been at her bedside




    Ashley Franco
    @AshleyKKTV

    NEW WITNESS: CBI Agent Kevin Coback. Field agent in Pueblo for 7 years. D.A. Linda Stanley is now asking him questions about #BarryMorphew employee Morgan Gentile.

    Lauren Scharf
    @LaurenScharfTV
    #BarryMorphew was supposed to pick Morgan Gentile up on Sunday night at 5:30 p.m. but didn't and called her around 11 a.m. to ask her to bring another worker to Broomfield



    Lauren Scharf
    @LaurenScharfTV
    Morgan Gentile stayed in room 228, Jeff Puckett stayed in room 225 (room that #BarryMorphew had stayed in). Judge is asking if the room had been cleaned before Puckett arrived, the investigator didn't know

    Ashley Franco
    @AshleyKKTV
    Prosecution calls Kevin Koback, a CBI field agent in the Pueblo regional office. He interviewed a coworker of #BarryMorphew. Coworker told them on May 10th she and another coworker were going to hotel in Broomfield. The other coworker was set to stay in Barry's room

    Ashley Franco
    @AshleyKKTV
    The coworker says she walked into the room #BarryMorphew was staying in and it smelled strongly of chlorine, there were wet towels, and they found insurance documents under the pillow. It's not clear if room was cleaned by hotel before other worker stayed

    Carol McKinley
    @CarolAMcKinley
    Eytan suggests that just because #SuzanneMorphew's ID was in her purse, doesn't mean she didn't pull a "Gone Girl."
    Eytan- Suzanne was unhappy in her marriage.
    She wanted to leave.
    Rohrich-Yes.
    IE - When people want to disappear they don’t use their identity do they?

    Lauren Scharf
    @LaurenScharfTV
    Broomfield Holiday Inn: She had told the investigators when they opened the door to room 225 they were overcome by the smell, saw wet towels on the floor in the bathroom. Also an insurance document under a pillow that had been trashed.

    Lauren Scharf
    @LaurenScharfTV
    Morgan Gentile had told investigators that #BarryMorphew was the first boss that respected her. She said that she heard Barry's truck around 4 a.m. Sunday morning and it was not a surprise to her that he left her.

    Lauren Scharf
    @LaurenScharfTV
    #BarryMorphew called Morgan at 11:18 a.m. May 10 asking her to get another worker and giving her details about the job, making sure that there was enough material to do the job in Broomfield. Barry didn't mention why he left her in Chaffee County.
    Lauren Scharf
    @LaurenScharfTV
    At 6:09 p.m. #BarryMorphew called Morgan Gentile saying that he needed to return to Salida for a family emergency but didn't mention Suzanne missing

    Ashley Franco

    This coworker was confronted about her relationship with #BarryMorphew, asked if they had an affair. Coworker said she respected Barry as a boss and that he never did anything to make her feel uncomfortable.

    Lauren Scharf
    @LaurenScharfTV
    At 7:30 a.m. on May 11, #BarryMorphew called Morgan Gentile referencing that Suzanne was missing and talked about a mountain lion then immediately turned his attention to the job in Broomfield.

    Lauren Scharf
    @LaurenScharfTV
    On May 15, CBI agents questions Morgan Gentile about her relationship with #BarryMorphew. She was confronted about being called a mistress. Gentile is concerned about what is being said on social media, her safety, and her children's safety.

    @AshleyKKTV
    Defense says #BarryMorphew called his coworker crying saying that his wife was missing and that they found her bike and he believed it was a mountain lion.

    Lauren Scharf
    @LaurenScharfTV
    After further investigation, it was confirmed that Morgan Gentile did NOT have an affair with #BarryMorphew. She described Barry as not an emotional guy and he called Gentile crying Monday morning. "My wife is missing, we found the bike, its gotta be a mountain lion or cougar."

    Lauren Scharf
    @LaurenScharfTV
    Eytan said #BarryMorphew didn't tell the front desk to get two cleanrooms for his workers and he didn't tell his workers not to come. Morgan Gentile and Jeff Puckett came to the hotel Sunday night





    Lauren Scharf
    @LaurenScharfTV
    Puckett found the insurance document under a pillow and ended up in the trash. Agent Coback said he hasn't read the affidavit. He knows what Morgan Gentile said but not of Jeff Puckett.

    Lauren Scharf
    @LaurenScharfTV
    CBI sent an email to the hotel on May 12 to preserve all surveillance videos. They picked up the thumb drive. Agents also got the logs of who was coming and going into the hotel. Agent Coback doesn't have information if the hotel room was swabbed for #SuzanneMorphew DNA

    Ashley Franco
    @AshleyKKTV
    Defense argues that the General Manager from the hotel told CBI that the room #BarryMorphew was staying in was right above the indoor pool and that it and another room had a strong smell of chlorine from the pool.

    Lauren Scharf
    @LaurenScharfTV
    Another CBI agent went back to the hotel on Sept. 1, 2020 to take photographs after media attention about the chlorine smell in #BarryMorphew room. Eytan found an email from the hotel manager saying that room is above the pool area and still smells like chlorine 4 months later

    Lauren Scharf
    @LaurenScharfTV
    D.A. redirected and asked if the pool was open during the time #BarryMorphew was there? Agent Coback didn't know.

    Chaffee County Deputy Himschoot helped in the search and inspection of the Morphew home and looked at the gun safe and laundry room. We are about to watch body cam video of the photographs that were taken of the dryer and laundry room.

    The photographer is wearing black gloves as they photograph the top of the washer and inside as well as the dryer. #BarryMorphew defense team is having difficulty with audio.

    Defense showing body camera video of the search of the Morphew home. They're searching the laundry room. Deputy Himshoot says they did not see anything in the dryer at the time they went into the home.

    Ashley Franco
    @AshleyKKTV
    Defense says the Deputy swabbed the dryer for blood, but when this Deputy was looking inside the dryer he saw the cap for the needle for the tranquilizer dart. It was missed by a deputy taking pictures the first time around.

    Lauren Scharf
    @LaurenScharfTV
    The dryer and washer were empty. Deputy Himschoot was assigned to swab the dryer. Now we are watching body cam video. Audio: "Did you see what was inside the dryer? You might want to look inside the dryer? There might be something of interest..."

    Ashley Franco
    @AshleyKKTV
    In the video you can see the deputy pick up the cap and hear him put it back down. Defenses says he did not put it in the report that he picked it up to look at it before asking someone to come take pictures of it.




    Lauren Scharf
    @LaurenScharfTV
    It was the cap for the tranquilizer needle sheath inside the dryer. Another deputy then took photos. Nielsen asked Deputy Himschoot what was that clunking noise? Himschoot said I picked up the item and then put it back down. He didn't file that in his report.

    Ashley Franco
    @AshleyKKTV
    In body camera video you hear Deputy Himshoot say that when he found the gun it did not even work properly. He says that it hadn't been fired recently.

    Prosecutions takes over. They flat out ask Deputy Himshoot if he placed the cap of the needle inside the dryer. He says no. Pros says "are you 100%?" He says yes.

    We just saw the body cam video of sheriffs deputies opening the Morphew dryer where the tranquilizer dart "cap" was found.Nielsen-“can you hear the sound of a clunk when your hand is in the dryer? What was that?
    Himshoot "That would be me picking something up and placing it ...

    @CarolAMcKinley
    ...back down maam." On redirect, LIndsey asks "Did you put that cap in there?
    No sir
    100%?
    100%.
    You told the CBI guys this is something we are interested in.
    Himshoot -"Yes sir."

    Lauren Scharf
    @LaurenScharfTV
    Deputy Himschoot also was talking in the garage about the dart gun and how it didn't function and didn't seem to have been fired in a very long time... so finding the tranquilizer needle sheath cap in the dryer was odd

    Jamie Leary
    @JamieALeary
    Defense team is suggesting Sheriff's Deputy who swabbed the morphew dryer, planted the needle sheath to the dart gun. On cross examination, he tells prosecution he did not but he did pick it up and put it back which he didn't mention in his reports
    Lauren Scharf
    @LaurenScharfTV
    Deputy Himschoot said that he is not a certified fire-arm examiner but knows a lot about guns.

    Ashley Franco
    @AshleyKKTV
    Prosecution asks if the gun was ever examined by a firearm expert. Deputy says no it was not. Defense fires back saying that he may not be a firearm expert but he was familiar with guns and he made determinations with familiarity with firearms that it did not appear to work

    Carol McKinley
    @CarolAMcKinley
    Body cam video is played where we hear Himshoot say the dart gun did not appear to work. "You know the thing that’s really weird about the cover is the gun has not been fired. It doesn’t function appropriately. It doesn’t engage.”

    Crime Talk with Scott Reisch
    @CrimeTalkPod
    Nielsen- did you hear a ‘plunk’ when you pulled the object out of the dryer?
    Himchoot- no?
    (He picked up what he saw, then placed it back down) - this wasn’t noted on the report

    Crime Talk with Scott Reisch
    @CrimeTalkPod
    Lindsey- did you put the hypodermic needle cap inside the dryer?
    Himchoot - no
    Lindsey- 100%?
    Himchoot- I did not put it there

    Deputy Himshoot confirms to defense the dart gun did not appear to work and it did not appear it had been fired in a long time

    The defense has called CBI Agent Joseph Cahill to the stand. He is being asked about the DNA swabbed from #SuzanneMorphew's glove box from #BarryMorphew attorney Iris Eytan.




    Lauren Scharf
    @LaurenScharfTV
    Agent Cahill claims he hasn't seen the final version of the arrest affidavit that was submitted to the court for the arrest of #BarryMorphew.

    Ashley Franco
    @AshleyKKTV
    We're back from a quick break. Defense calls CBI Agent Joseph Cahill. He testifies that he collected DNA. There was unknown DNA from a male found on #SuzanneMorphew glove box in her car. @KKTV11News

    Carol McKinley
    @CarolAMcKinley
    New witness: CBI Agent Joe Cahill, who investigated the case extensively. He acknowledges that Suzanne's Ranger Rover glove box had unknown DNA on it, which did not belong to Barry Morphew. @ABC2020

    Lauren Scharf
    @LaurenScharfTV
    Cahill said that #BarryMorphew was excluded from the DNA on #SuzanneMorphew glovebox. Now Eytan is asking about the DNA on the handlebars of Suzanne's bike. Cahill can't remember so Eytan is showing him the affidavit to refresh his memory, he can't remember.

    Ashley Franco
    @AshleyKKTV
    Agent Cahill says #BarryMorphew was excluded from the DNA in the car. Defense is working to refresh Agent Cahill's memory with several documents, but the agent continues to say that he does not recall the affidavit he reviewed and does not remember the DNA portion.

    Lauren Scharf
    @LaurenScharfTV
    Cahill said that he was on military leave and only got to review/edit until page 19 of the 126 pages of the affidavit so he didn't get through the rest of the pages

    Ashley Franco
    @AshleyKKTV
    Defense says there was also unknown male DNA on the bike grips of #SuzanneMorphew bike. They say #BarryMorphew was excluded. Same goes for apparent unknown male DNA on the rear cushion in Suzanne's car




    Carol McKinley
    @CarolAMcKinley
    Eytan from the lab report: The bike breaks and handlebars also had unknown male DNA on the bike grips and there was also unknown male DNA on the rear cushion of Suzanne's Range Rover.

    Lauren Scharf
    @LaurenScharfTV
    Cahill is being asked by #BarryMorphew attorney Eytan if he was aware/taking into consideration the unknown male DNA found on the bike grips, #SuzanneMorphew car rear cushion, and glove box

    Ashley Franco
    @AshleyKKTV
    Agent Cahill says the report shows that DNA from the glovebox came back to matches of investigative leads that show the partial profile came back to unsolved sexual assault cases. #SuzanneMorphew #BarryMorphew
    @KKTV11News

    Carol McKinley
    @CarolAMcKinley
    Eytan reading from the lab report says the prison DNA data system,
    CODIS, returned 3 confirmed matches from the glove box to other unsolved sexual assaults. Cahill says it's true if it was in the report.

    Lauren Scharf
    @LaurenScharfTV
    A letter from Agent Duge addressed to Cahill sent on May 19, 2021, refers to the partial profile DNA from #SuzanneMorphew glove box that had 3 confirmed matches to unsolved sexual assaults.

    Carol McKinley
    @CarolAMcKinley
    One of the sexual assaults occurred outside of a convenience store in Tempe. Judge overrules an objection reminding courtroom that the defense is allowed to question further in a proof evident presumption great hearing. Cahill then agrees the assault happened outside a conv store

    Ashley Franco
    @AshleyKKTV
    Defense says the DNA profile matches that from an unsolved sexual assault case was from Tempe, Arizona outside a convenience store. DNA was uncovered to see who the suspect was in that case and to see if it had any relation to the disappearance of #SuzanneMorphew


    Lauren Scharf
    @LaurenScharfTV
    The matches are from Pheonix, Chicago, and Tempe, Arizona. Tempe case was looked into in Dec. 2020. Cahill contacted the investigator in charge of the attempted sexual assault outside a local convenience store. However, the Tempe case had two suspects.

    Lauren Scharf
    @LaurenScharfTV
    The judge is lost... many in the courtroom are also confused so he is trying to get clarification. "It is my understanding that the partial did not match the two primary suspects from the Tempe case according to another detective," Agent Cahill said.

    Lauren Scharf
    @LaurenScharfTV
    There is no scientific proof that there isn't a match. Eytan is giving Agent Cahill multiple reports to review.

    Lauren Scharf
    @LaurenScharfTV
    Forensic Scientist confirmed to Cahill it was a potential lead, not a perfect match, Cahill explained. Now they are talking about another CODIS match from #SuzanneMorphew glove box that matched in Pheonix from a sperm sample. He wasn't aware of a letter sent in Nov. about it.

    Ashley Franco
    @AshleyKKTV
    CBI was notified that there was another DNA profile match to an unsolved sexual assault case in Pheonix Arizona from the DNA found on #SuzanneMorphew glovebox. In April 2021 Defense says there was another match from an unsolved sex assault case, this time in Chicago @KKTV11News

    Carol McKinley
    @CarolAMcKinley
    Eytan pounds on the fact that there was a match between an unsolved sexual assault and DNA found on Suzanne's glove box. Now she brings up another match with the glove box DNA and an unsolved sexual assault in Chicago.

    Lauren Scharf
    @LaurenScharfTV
    Now Eytan is speaking about the CODIS match from #SuzanneMorphew glove box that matched in Chicago, Illinois. CBI Agent Cahill said he wasn't aware until he got a call from Det. Burgis when he returned from military leave in May of 2021.



    Carol McKinley
    @CarolAMcKinley
    Cahill explains he didn't know about these findings when they came in because he was on military leave from March to May 10th.

    Lauren Scharf
    @LaurenScharfTV
    The judge asked Cahill, what do you know about this Chicago case? Cahill said that Det. Burgis said he would be following up. CBI Agent Cahill said he was on Military leave from March 8 until around May 10 of 2021.

    Crime Talk with Scott Reisch
    @CrimeTalkPod
    Agent Joseph Cahill called by defense. Eytan has been asking about possible DNA matches from Suzanne’s glovebox to 3 separate sexual assault cases. Cahill was on military leave and did not follow up on these. He had a coworker who would follow up.

    Lauren Scharf
    @LaurenScharfTV
    The state is now cross-examining CBI Agent Joseph Cahill.

    Ashley Franco
    @AshleyKKTV
    The defense wrapped up this witness and hands it over to the prosecution. They are discussing that #BarryMorphew DNA might have been in #SuzanneMorphew car and on her bike. Agent says he needs to refer to the report. @KKTV11News

    Carol McKinley
    @CarolAMcKinley
    On redirect, prosecutor Mark Hurlbert reminds the court that Barry Morphew's DNA was found on the bike seat and in Suzanne's car. He's shifting gears from where Morphew's DNA was NOT found to where it WAS found.

    Ashley Franco
    @AshleyKKTV
    Agent Cahill looks at the report and says it's not clear which car they are referencing in the report because three cars were swabbed. #SuzanneMorphew #BarryMorphew
    @KKTV11News

    Lauren Scharf
    @LaurenScharfTV
    Agent Cahill is being shown a DNA report from June of 2020. Explaining CODIS which is a nationwide DNA database. Typically people who have been convicted of a felony or at the request of law enforcement. Knowns and unknowns get put into CODIS.

    Lauren Scharf
    @LaurenScharfTV
    Explaining that you can't just put any DNA into CODIS. The judge is reminding the defense to let the state have the entire question out before they object.

    Court is back in session for the Barry Morphew preliminary hearing, and the prosecution is continuing its cross-examination of CBI Agent Joseph Cahill.
    ---
    Agent Cahill is being asked about what a keyboard search is. Scientists are comparing the two samples to decide if it is worth law enforcement time to investigate.
