    MOD NOTE - THIS POST LANDS AT RANDOM

    While speculation based on the facts of the case is certainly allowed and encouraged, speculation based on no known facts in the case, such as the yet unnamed suspect could also be responsible for the Delphi murders (or other cases), is not allowed.

    Please stick to the facts in this case.

    Thank you :)

    MOD NOTE

    Re: CM's twitter asking the public to speculate on the identity of the rando wigged e-bike search spectator...

    OUR rules here are clear: we cannot speculate by throwing random names/initials of people connected to this case, by insinuating they might be some sneaky person, up to no good, sneaking around search locations.

    This crosses the line of our VICTIM FRIENDLY policy, which includes family, friends, co-workers, neighbors, etc. Sleuthing/naming/insinuating is against our rules here. Please post accordingly.

    Sleuth away behind the scenes but don't post about it here.

    Does the NG podcast have a transcript? Or, is there a way to auto transcribe?

    Exactly - Miss Grace needs to contact a few sleuthers here to straighten her details out IMO

    I don’t think Suzanne is in a place where someone is ever going to stumble across her remains. I’m convinced that damn bobcat factors in, which means she’s buried.

    If that were to happen though, I think law enforcement would make an arrest before BM ever got wind of such a discovery. I think at this moment, the body is the missing piece.

    I don’t believe she will be found, or that the lack of a body will ultimately matter, but that does mean that this will take longer.

    Thanks for the update @MassGuy.
    It’s kind of depressing though just how many people’s bodies are out there and not found.

    I’m thinking as young as they are, and if they are ‘terrified,’ they might be afraid to be in the spotlight. Or perhaps have been TOLD to stay out of the spotlight. It makes me wonder who all they might be afraid of? What are they thinking when they lay their heads down at night when their Dad says one thing and the media and their uncle says something else? They are innocent young ladies caught in the middle missing their precious Mom.
    MOO

    Yep, those are some crappy interior photos in the listing. Either they were taken by a guy in a big hurry or the realtor is a meth head.

    That’s puzzling, the only person who brought this up was AM, IIRC...Soooo, was GM asked about this? AM clearly stated GM refused to sign guardianship papers...

    Something very confusing here.

    I assume there are two issues here.. The Morphew properties, which BM had no problems gaining guardianship.

    Moorman family properties might involve SMs input, that might involve guardianship issues. It’s possible there are legal issues needing to be resolved. Someone who is 87 yo, suffering from cancer would likely be setting affairs in order.

    Just not sure why BM needs to have GMs approval for his actions. This could just be AMs misstating, grains of salt...5t
    THEIR timelines don’t match to BMs , for sure. I’m surprised NG didn’t pursue this.
    My confusion, who was he supposed to be texting at 4am? if MG, then why was she scrambling at 5 am, and why didn’t she leave til 6:45? Only two other workers afawk, what are their recollections? Also it took them from
    6:45 til 11am? 4 hrs 15 mins, should we plug that into BMs timeline?
    To be sure, retirement has completely eliminated my minute to minute scheduling, if forced to relive some of my past days, I’d have to refer to my WS posts, lol.
    I think the evi and paper trails are going to be much more valuable than any of these characters, and that includes BM.

    I disagree with you. What's smart often has little to do with typical, human behavior.

    His priorities are clear. Business is super important to him. You may think he's been searching behind the scenes but where are the large search parties he organized? Where are the search centers? Where are the fliers he has created? The countless interviews and please for someone to give us information?

    But more than that, more than how this shows his priorities is what it said about whether, early on, he felt it likely she would walk through that door.

    I know from personal experience that when a loved one is missing, hope doesn't die, even improbable hope, that quickly. You keep feeling they're going to walk through the door, or you'll get a call that it's all been a terrible mistake, or whatever.

    But let's be clear - LE doesn't get a search warrant to excavate a third parties' property, damaging that property in the process, via a fishing expedition to "eliminate" possibilities. They need probable cause. And the probable cause necessary for something like that is arguably greater than what's necessary to search the victim's property.

    And as to that, LE didn't search the victim and her husband's property not once, but twice, over a month apart, despite the fact that she supposedly disappeared while on a bike ride. That's more than just elimination, IMO. I could understand one search of a location for that purpose. Not two.

    This demonstrates exactly how difficult it is to locate a missing person in the mountains of Colorado. This man was searched for extensively in May 2019 in the
    area of the Equity Mine by the Mineral County Search and Rescue team. I have dropped a pin on the Google Earth aerial view, at that location.
    His stated intention was to ascend 14,014 ft San Luis Peak, which is in Saguache county, I have dropped a second pin there.
    His body was found seventeen months later near the Allara Tunnel mine in Hinsdale county, I have dropped a pin there. In a previous post I mentioned that the Allara mine could be reached by hiking from the south, perhaps "bagging up to three fourteeners" on the way, and drop down to the vicinity of the Allarra Tunnel mine. It sounds like the poor man did just that before getting lost. IMO

    Aerial view produced entirely in Google Earth Pro with no external editing.

    In regards to Barry’s behavior and how strange it is:

    It’s not how we would react to a situation like this, rather, it’s how people typically react in a situation like this.

    What we see from spouses and significant others when a loved one goes missing.

    It’s about human nature, and not “what’s smart,” (lawyering up and alike).

    In that regard, Barry’s behavior is off the charts suspicious:

    Bashing those who speak out

    Refusing to go on camera

    Attacking the investigation

    Not attending that press conference

    Not issuing repeated appeals for his missing wife

    Not organizing searches

    Calling a massive search a “publicity stunt”

    Putting the marital home on the market, and making repeated property transactions

    Presumably he was with his Bobcat on Sunday and nowhere near Broomfield or he would've left the Bobcat there.

    Then again, he might not have had a job IN Broomfield. We've yet to get confirmation of any such thing.

    Hmmmm. Was he back in Salida on Mother's Day, raking a beach with his Bobcat?
