    Could there be something so embarrassing or harmful to BM’s Christian persona that he would kill to keep it secret?

    Since you’re implying financial gain by someone other than BM, you’re clearly pointing towards someone in SM’s family being involved.

    The absurdity of that allegation is that:

    1. It would be the coincidence of all coincidences that BM leaves SM alone on Mother’s Day by leaving at 4 or 5am, for a job that didn’t even have a crew assembled to work on and doesn’t even have proof of existing.

    2. That SM family member would not have known that both daughters were in another state on a camp trip. A quick check of social media would have shown they were out of town.

    The mountain lion is a more likely scenario than what you propose.

    This is truly remote country, at high elevation. 14,000-ft San Luis Peak is in this area. The nearest "town" is just across the county line at nearly 9,000 ft and consists of 14 people at the last census. Getting to this area from Maysville would not be a quick trip on straight roads: I'd guess it's a 5 to 6 hour round trip. These remains are very unlikely to be SM's. MOO.

    What’s interesting to me regarding my Facebook theory (BM logged in as SM on his device)

    -BM would have logged in as SM on his device on Saturday in order for those requests to be made.

    -I’m assuming the requests happened around midnight EST, which is 10pm MT.

    -In order for BM to do this, it would mean that he wasn’t going to be using SM’s device, so it would be powered off or destroyed before 10pm MT.

    -We’ve heard that SM’s phone last pinged inside the house.

    -So it makes me think SM was killed sometime between that 4pm sandwich sighting and 10pm.

    -It would have been easy for BM to just keep using SM’s phone at home, so the fact that it doesn’t appear he does that makes me think he’s in hide the evidence mode by 10pm.

    -Is there relevance with this timeline and the one story we heard from the best friend that their messaging abruptly ended at 9:30pm on Saturday? What about the alleged 11:30pm salida job site noise?

    Was BM picking up the bobcat at 11:30pm to use it later that night for disposal of a body? Maybe even hiding the broken pieces of her phone under a soon to be poured concrete slab? Did BM need all of the workers in Broomfield Sunday because he had the bobcat with him and it wouldn’t be at the salida site for any of his workers to use on Sunday and didn’t need that fact blowing up the clear indication that he took it Saturday night at an odd hour?

    What’s interesting about financial greed, which I agree is the motive, is:

    -BM seemed to have control over SM’s money when she was alive.

    -So for financial greed to be the motive it seems like:

    1. SM was going to divorce him which would separate BM from being able to control her money.

    OR

    2. BM needed the money to pay off a debt that SM was not aware of, and for some reason SM knowing about this debt would have been a major problem.

    Why are all his statements so defensive and about him and not his wife? its like he is only focused on explaining himself every time like he's speaking to a jury rather than being focused on giving information that could help find his wife.

    Yes, bingo... even a mask can make this a definite possibility.

    But is BM really a devoted Christian? My bet it’s on Suzanne (by what I’ve seen posted by her). I think he was going to church to keep up this perfect family image and maybe to network and build up his landscaping business.

    I haven’t seen one outward Christian trait in him. He has never mentioned his wife by her Christian name. Heck! He hasn’t even searched for her or gone to any vigil!

    Nope! BM is no Christian in my book. MOO

    @NatureLover:

    To your knowledge, Can you answer if BM was a devoted Christian or a religious person?

    Thank you for your reply.

    Yes! bike gear or not - a ball cap, sunglasses, face covering. Pretty tough to identify someone. Would like to see CCTV footage.
    It’s extremely creepy to think another human would be willing to stand in as a ‘fake’ SM but it’s possible (especially for a large amount of money).

    I still think this is unlikely. It was midst of shutdown - nobody was cheerily going to the sandwich shop on a Saturday afternoon. If picking up food, curbside pick up was typical. It does not line up.

    I agree that he likely only poses as a Christian. Do we even know if he went to church, not that that’s the measure anyway?

    It was also an opportunity to find out what the neighbor's reaction would be, i.e.

    Barry, she's not there but there is a strong odor of bleach...

    Why is the carpet sopping wet?

    Barry, when did you rearrange the family room furniture?

    MOO

    @Dalgliesh would you agree this area, at this elevation would possibly still be snowed in early in May? I also think it’s unlikely this is SM.
    Many of the high country passes don’t open until July, and in this terrain it can easily take 3 hours to drive 50 or so miles (even in summer)! Unless the bobcat has snow tracks and someone was up all night. MOO

    And if she noticed these sort of things, she would have included that information to 911 more than likely. Moo

    Since the beginning of this sad case, JR has been very private. If she realized SM was missing, and if she DID smell bleach, imagine how internally freaked out she would have been.
    I am pretty sure she would tell LE about that "smell" detail.....which would IMO be a HUGE tell to LE.
    How fearful of BM is she, as each day ticks by?
    MOO

    I just went back to the TD recording.

    I'm pretty sure that the part about the girls running late was a falsehood, put in there because his conversation with Suzanne about the girls spending the day with her never happened and was never the plan. It's a long journey from ID to CO.

    This is what I hear on the recording - I'm not sure if it matches an official transcript

    TD: Let me ask you a quick question Barry. So you were in Denver but how long, how long before somebody noticed that she was gone?

    BM: Well it was Mother’s Day,

    TD: It was Mother’s Day

    BM: So, um, we um, (pauses) we had two daughters that were coming home from a trip. And I had got a job in Denver that I wanted to get started on on Sunday, set it up for my workers, my workers were coming in Sunday night, normally I work [inaudible] Sunday night [inaudible] Monday but I, being the owner, I wanted to get everything lined up so that they didn’t have to stay in the room on the Monday morning, just get busy working.

    TD: Right

    BM: So I told my wife, I said listen, the girls are gonna be home, they want to spend Mother’s Day with you, mind if I go get set up [inaudible] set up the [bikes?] and stuff and then the girls came home [inaudible]. That’s what we thought was going to happen. The girls were running late so they texted her Happy Mother’s Day, she didn’t text back. So we went to, or they called my neighbors, and said ‘listen, it’s Mother’s Day, I’m a little worried, and will you go check the house?’ The neighbor went and checked the house, saw that her car was there but the bike was gone. She called me in Denver and said ‘hey we’re just a little worried’ and I go ‘well, I am too, why don’t we…

    start point 6:22


    MOO

    That's really a most curious question. Tough to answer without bringing up religion and how it does or doesn't figure in to this case.

    The answer of course is yes. Although I haven't actually seen anything that leads me to believe he is actually a Christian, the persona may be important enough to him, for whatever reason, to go to unthinkable lengths to keep secrets in the dark.

    MOO, as neither I nor the DW have any direct knowledge of this - but based on how BM talks (especially the "if one person is saved" comment, but he's also been quoted more than once referencing God) I believe he at least wants to be portrayed as a Christian.
    I'm 100% with you that I fail to see any of the traits I would hope people would associate with Christianity (humility, integrity, love, grace, compassion, etc.) MOO

    If she had mentioned it to Barry first, would he have still told her to call 911? IDK. It reminds me of Patsy Ramsey with her hands over her face, watching the officer's reaction through her fingers. MOO
