PLEASE READ BEFORE CONTINUING DISCUSSION IN THIS THREAD

Tricia wants members to know that she feels very badly that anyone was upset by the thread specific decision she made yesterday to allow discussion of the rumors in this case. She will revisit this matter as the situation warrants.

The Sheriff has specifically stated that Suzanne’s body was not found and Barry has not been arrested. Accordingly, Tricia has reversed the decision to allow discussion of any of the three rumors, specifically that:

- Suzanne’s body was found
- there is a mistress involved
- that Barry was arrested

Do not discuss those rumors.

Do NOT sleuth BM and his businesses and post your findings or questions about his background or businesses on this public thread.

Unless he is named a POI/suspect by LE members may NOT sleuth him; members may ONLY speculate and discuss what has been contained in MSM.

The thread is open once again for members to discuss the case details within the regular WS parameters (i.e. as we believe them to be factual via MSM and LE).

Thank you.
 
This post falls at random:

Some gentle advice.....
If your post states:
“I remember reading that _____”
OR “Didn’t somebody say that ______”
OR “I don’t have a source but I saw somewhere that _____”
OR anything in that vein, you are posting a potential runaway rumor if it does not have a link to the info in MSM.

Runaway rumors are tough to stop, and often require a thread shutdown to clean up.
I know NO ONE ever intends that with what seems to be innocent questions, but once those words are printed here they can take on a life of their own.
Please consider carefully what you write. You can ask some of these questions in PMs that will remain off the board and not cause a proliferation of mistaken info taking over the thread.


THANKS from me - I really appreciate your efforts!

Faithfully,
CocoChanel

Might want to bookmark, if you haven't already, this page as this is where all the press releases come from. I think there is another page also, same releases.

Ita.
Due to DM's history of "facts"... I take it with the proverbial grain. :rolleyes:

But of more interest to me was that LE wanted people to save footage from the 8th !
I have to assume (my opinion here) that LE have spoken with and maybe looked at the daughter's cell phones.
What LE discovered -- or not -- might be relevant.
What if no one saw or spoke to her since then ?

Texting can be faked and I'm also curious if someone(s) received a text that seemed "off" ?? :(
MOO


What I don't understand is why LE haven't obtained any local camera footage, not that I am aware of anyway.

Even if they suspect the husband or someone else, surely it would potentially help their case either way to look at it?!

I don't know, this case is so bizarre simply because of the lacking info.

MOO
 
I love this train of thought. How many killers have set the stage so someone else is the one to discover either a body, or evidence?

Creating distance is important, as it manufactures an alibi. I think this is exactly how it may have gone down.
I agree Mass...

And the quote below is point blank from the Sheriff.

"Someone has that key piece of information in this case that will help us locate Suzanne."

MISSING: Colorado woman vanishes after going for a bike ride
 
I have been wanting to contribute to discussion here, but I find myself “blank” I guess?

There’s not much to discuss.

If LE thought she was alive, there would be a lot more searching and pleading to the public; lost or hurt or abducted, etc. Searches seemed to stop the minute they started.

If BM thought she was alive, well, no comment.

I have a feeling something is going to happen soon. Very soon. Well, hopefully sooner than in Tylee/JJ case.

It’s nearly impossible to disappear without a trace.
 
Suzanne deserves physical searches be made for her in the area from which she disappeared. Can't stand the thought of her being out there all alone.
They had and are....

"Members of the Chaffee County Sheriff’s Office responded to the area and contacted the reporting party. They advised that their neighbor, Suzanne Morphew, age 49, from the Maysville area had reportedly gone for a bike ride in the area and failed to return home.

Sheriff personnel called members of Chaffee County Search and Rescue South and North and a search began immediately. The Department of Corrections was contacted and a request was made for tracking dogs to assist. They responded and joined the search. The search continued into the early morning hours with no results.
The search resumed in the early morning hours of May 11 with Search and Rescue. They once again scoured the area. Members were then called from the Chaffee County Tac Team along with search parties from the Department of Corrections and the area was once again scoured.
In all over 100 personnel were used during the search, however by late afternoon on May 11 Ms Morphew had not been found.
This will be an ongoing investigation into this matter..."
 
TO CLARIFY: This is NOT a press conference just a press release. The Chaffee County Sheriff Office has not sent out a written update (press release) since May 26 about the #MissingPerson case of #suzannemorphew

https://twitter.com/laurenscharftv/status/1270545244539346946?s=21

It has been a MONTH since #suzannemorphew disappeared. So this press release could just be an update on their investigation such as how many tips law enforcement are following up on. I’m not sure when they’ll be sending it out. #FindSuzanne

I don't understand why a thorough search for Suzanne has not been made. 90 or 100 searchers for 2-3 days is definitely not enough in this terrain.

Why has Texas Equusearch not been brought in?

oviedo excellent work!!

Why has Texas Equusearch not been brought in?
It is if you know there was never a bike ride. Hell, I’m surprised they invested that much time.

Due diligence I guess.

Equusearch is great if you actually have a general idea where to begin looking. <modsnip: removed direct accusation>
