    Based on the quotes below from LS’ piece last night, it appears that the someone in the public knows something and they are not speaking. The flyer pass out is LE’s way of saying ‘this isn’t just going to disappear, you should talk’.

    Search for Suzanne Morphew pushes on despite silence from Chaffee County Sheriff


    “We are such a small town where everyone knows everything. You would be amazed by the secrets the mountains hold regarding this case,” a business owner said.

    Another store owner added, “people that have money can do dangerous things, if you get too close to the fire you can get burned.”

    Thank you for this information! It helps to get a feel for the layout, etc.

    It would be nice to see a map and/or ariel view of it as I'm guessing I'm not the only one who has problems with Google maps, etc. (or at least I hope I'm not the only one, lol). Heck, I have problems even getting the little man to walk along to view a neighborhood/area. I can drag him and drop him to area I want to view but then I can't get him to go where I need to go and I really get myself into a jam when I come to an intersection and try to get him to turn right or left, lol!

    We used to have several posters who were very good at the maps and it helped for those of us who are not from the areas and have probably not been there either.

    But again, I thank you for the information you provided as I've got a better picture of it now in my mind!

    Someone please correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe that when BM turned off Hwy 50 toward his home, that first stretch of road before the turn, is where they are saying the bike was found. So he would have driven right to it even if he intended to go home, and as 10ofRods says, would have seen the SAR vehicles, crowd, etc. even if he didn't already know where the bike was found

    Or maybe Knoxville, Tennessee? The search is on for a tiger spotted in a Knoxville, Tennessee industrial park - CNN

    I think they should put out fliers of Barry's truck and maybe a photo of his truck pulling a Bobcat. JMO

    You might be right. I thought he was talking about the house b/c he said he asked them after the second search warrant. I’d have to go back & listen though.

    In today’s CCSO press release it’s mentioned flyers of SM will be handed out again. IMO, that tells *me* there’s a possibility SM was alive somewhere away from her house either on Saturday or Sunday (5/9 or 5/10). If she was murdered in her home, as an example, how would a flyer of her really help now?

    Is LE hoping someone will remember seeing her alone or with someone? Whether it’s a passenger in BM’s truck, another person, on a bike (I know, I know) walking a trail, etc.?

    I’m not suggesting she’s alive, tragically I don’t believe she is and think this is a foul play case.

    I’m just thrown off by the flyer hangout again and how it will help.

    Curious what others think.

    IMO

    Excellent summary as to the current state of affairs with missing persons in the USA.

    I hope you got/get an "A" on your paper because I think you nailed it with your research.

    Personally for this case, I am happy that LE puts out their monthly updates that at least reminds us they are actively working the case. That is more than we get in some other cases when the case seems to get a little on the cold side of things.

    Lets hope LE is still waiting on some important test results to come back to wrap up the case, or better yet, lets hope they find Suzanne.

    Keeping SMs face and name out in the public is the best way to ensure her case stays active. you never know what a photo can job and once people stop caring about a case, resources and time commited to it swiftly follow IMO

    I wondered if it's to jog someone's conscience. Also in case anyone remembers an event in the recent past which may be relevant.

    I often think flyers are an odd strategy. Mostly I think they just keep momentum going really.

    Yeah, I absolutely get that but believe it’s a rubber stamp answer to a degree.

    It’s entirely possible I’m overthinking it.

    No flyers hanging in the Sheriff’s office. Maybe they ran out. I wonder if there’s one up today.

    I thought about this as well. It’s appealing to a single person, maybe more than one. Humanizing her, she was real, come forward. IMO

    These guys are mentioned in the press release today from the CCSO:

    "NecroSearch International Inc. is a 501(c)3 volunteer multidisciplinary team of specialists dedicated to assisting law enforcement in the location of clandestine graves and the documentation and recovery of evidence (including human remains).

    That was a very informative press release and should go a long way to reassure the family and those of us paying attention that LE is working hard to find her. I’m glad they put out the groups they are working with , including the dog types.

    Notice the press release still doesn’t warn the public of possible danger lurking.

    Because LE knows who the probable culprit is, and it’s not a big cat or some stranger snatching random women off bicycles.

    They just need to be able to prove it. Keep BM talking and digging a deeper hole.
