I’m starting to think that the variation in MG’s “testimony” is because she has come clean with LE and is cooperating in order to reduce charges against her. I think she was more involved than we’ve been lead to believe. She’s the only one of this cast of characters that has up and moved out of the state.

After hearing that MG said she heard BM’s truck outside her house at 4 am I tend to agree. That makes no sense why he would drive there and leave without calling her or knocking on her door. Was he at MG’s house? Like inside? With her? Speculating not accusing...

Well LE sure weren’t interested in digging up the beach area so they definitely aren’t going to tear up those people’s yard or driveway now without a very solid tip. I keep thinking what if she IS buried under the concrete slab and has been there all along? Unless someone confesses they will never destroy the floors of that new home after all that damage they already did. And if Suzanne is under that concrete but just in a different spot, that would explains BM’s arrogance. I wonder why the FBI only dug up the concrete and sifted through the dirt in that one location? What did they see there and why were they satisfied without digging up the whole foundation? Was a cadaver dog used there and that’s the only spot the dog hit on? I have watched several of the videos PE posted about cadaver dogs and the smell can drift or be off by several feet or more depending on the conditions. Or if it was because of ground penetrating radar did GPR locate an anomaly there? I have always thought the machinery noise heard by the neighbor was important. It doesn’t take 30 minutes (or longer since she was woken up after it had already started) to load up a Bobcat. Add to that BM laid the dirt there on Friday and he knew the concrete was about to be poured. And his sketchy behavior on Saturday telling MG to rake the beach flat and sending her home early. Somehow all these events have got to be connected. Could BM have killed Suzanne Friday night and the Saturday sighting of Suzanne getting a sandwich is wrong? Or was someone else? Could BM have been pretending to be Suzanne when texting with her friend and the conversation went into an area he couldn’t fake so he cut off the communication abruptly then tried to make it look like she was on FB later that night? Could BM have been telling MG to rake the beach flat because he was going to bury Suzanne there without using the Bobcat but he got the better idea for a safer option to use his Bobcat and bury her deeply under where he knew the concrete was about to be poured? Hence the machinery noise late at night. Why did the FBI only dig up that small portion of the foundation? Does anyone remember who poured the concrete? Wasn’t BM seen working at the site again after Suzanne was missing? Was BM there when the concrete was poured?

We keep going back to the home and also that property. Do we have a false sense that Suzanne is not there because of the three day FBI excavation? If the FBI couldn’t find her then she couldn’t possibly be there? What if BM used an auger (? or whatever that attachment is that is used to plant trees or insert pilings) to dig a deep hole and put her in it vertically instead of horizontally -would GPR pick up anything? There were a lot of rocks packed into the dirt where the FBI dug. What if she was wrapped/bound very tightly and because she is so small anyway only the top of her head was visible by GPR and it looked like just another rock? I feel like we are missing something obvious r/t BM hiding Suzanne’s body! We keep saying he is a landscaper and has the tools and know how to dispose of her in a way that she will never be found. Well he still could have done that at this location. If not under the concrete then what if he figured out how to bury her IN the river by the beach where the water is not very deep and cover her with rocks? Do we know if LE took their own cadaver dogs there to double check? Or did they just determine the other dog was not making a true non passive hit THREE times? How come they dug (barely) at the LHR site but not the beach site? It’s such a shame if Suzanne’s remains are there somewhere but BM walks free because they were that close but didn’t follow through. “Shame” is not a strong enough word. Maybe travesty is better but I don’t want to sound like I’m bashing LE. I still have faith in LE but they are only human and things can be missed and have been missed in other cases. Someone said a long time ago that they wouldn’t want to live in that house because they would always wonder if Suzanne’s remains were under it or there somewhere on the property and I have to agree! :(

Also I forced myself to listen to NG after reading all these posts about it and in addition to the other discrepancies already brought up...why are we just now hearing that MG heard BM’s truck outside her home at 4 am? She knows it was him because she recognized the sound of his truck?! It didn’t sound like NG was buying this and I’m not sure I am either. Is she trying to explain why EVI data would show BM’s truck at her house early in the morning? Why would BM drive to her house at that hour and then leave without calling or knocking? Did he drive to her house because he didn’t have his phone? Why? But then she says he left and then started texting her. I couldn’t tell if there was a delay or the texts started immediately after he left. I don’t know where MG lived before she moved or whether it was close to BM’s house or close to the river/beach site. Maybe BM disposed of Suzanne and then went to MG’s (what for and why that early when she would be asleep??) and then he changed his mind and went home and got his phone and headed to Broomfield and started texting the workers. Very strange and makes no sense!

All Speculation & IMO!!
I don’t know - personally I think it’s plausible. When my husband drives up, the dogs know the sound of the car and get excited. When my neighbor pulls up, I know he is home, sounds can be very distinctive.

And I have no doubt it’s going to be both solid, and damning.

His phone will probably end up being the most informative piece of evidence here, followed by that truck data.

It’s going to tell law enforcement where he was, and when that was there. I’m sure LE first got a timeline from Barry, then hit him in subsequent interviews with things they had been able to glean from his phone/vehicle data.

One can do a lot of damage during (alleged) 30 hours of interviews. Especially if their narrative is blown apart by technology.
It's concerning, then, that LE hasn't recovered SM. How did BM manage to disappear SM without his route and timing being tracked? Of course he could have turned off his mobile phone or left it elsewhere.

Vehicle cellular and GPS Navigation data is a different story. That information typically is not recorded off-vehicle, and only 'most-recent' data might be saved in the vehicle (either in dedicated memory or buffer memory) as opposed to expanded historical recording.

For the DA, a certain someone migh be asked to explain why their mobile phone was turned off or not with them for x date/time range IF that action is out of character from that someone's typical useage.

Or he was dropping her off at 4am.

And then started texting her the plan as he was driving to Broomfield.

Maybe that intent was only to place himself at that location (cellular 'ping' data)... the phone was likely powered on at tha time... but powered off during when SM was being disappeared on-route.

You may be right. I’m thinking that the 3.5 hr. Time that Andy gave came from somewhere, and it likely had to do with that phone data. It’s possible that phone was off for those hours or left at home before pinging again IMO.

00:54
to dr phil
00:55

01:04
this a
01:04
mine shaft is it a grave site is it

01:18
third one
01:19
is a an addition being put in
01:23
and the entrance area with blocks are
01:26
these areas that would lend themselves
01:28
to
01:29
hiding uh body or body parts
01:32
yes absolutely so when those dogs hit
01:37
what was the first thing that went
01:38
through your mind andy
01:40
i just said damn i can't
01:43
can't believe anybody would do this did
01:46
you think it was something else or

04:41
reporter ellen
04:43
killoran ellen what can you tell me
04:48
about what andrew moorman the brother
04:50
just
04:51
says to feel you know i've been
04:54
on day one ellen you and i locked horns
04:57
and went round and round and round
04:58
because i kept saying
05:00
who keeps saying she was on her bike
05:03
did anybody ever see her on her bike our
05:06
very first conversation the banner was
05:08
was she ever honored by now i'm
05:11
understanding it was
05:12
barry morphy the husband that first said
05:16
where's her bike did i get that right
05:19
ellen
05:20
yes you did we learned more in the last
05:23
week or
05:24
so about the timeline of suzanne
05:26
morphy's disappearance than we have in
05:27
the preceding
05:28
nearly five months we know now
05:31
that she was seen at 4 00 p.m
05:35
the day before she was reported missing
05:37
with her husband
05:39
barry moorhew by if we compare that to
05:43
what we know about
05:44
barry morphy's activity the next sunday
05:47
mother's day
05:48
the day that she was reported missing it
05:51
seems that barry morphew
05:52
would have had to arrive either
05:55
very late saturday night or very early
05:58
sunday morning
05:59
to go to broomfield colorado for a
06:01
landscaping job
06:02
a landscape escaping job that from what
06:06
we understand was never completed
06:08
okay i'm just trying to take in
06:09
everything you said uh ek it's like me
06:12
drinking from a fire hydrant it's
06:14
so much at once but let me just
06:17
go back what you were saying everything
06:20
you just said
06:20
is valuable to me so the first person
06:24
that ever said what about the bike
06:25
was barry morphy is that right yes
06:29
that is what we understand when the
06:31
neighbor went
06:32
to suzanne's home to check on her
06:35
because her daughters couldn't reach her
06:37
she first looked
06:39
into the garage to see if the cars were
06:42
there the cars were there
06:43
apparently barry then contacted her and
06:46
said but what about the bike
06:48
it was him who suggested that the
06:50
neighbor
06:51
look for the bike which of course the
06:53
neighbor didn't find
06:55
and to you lauren scharf joining me at
06:57
fox 21 colorado springs news reporter on
06:59
the case from the get-go
07:00
lauren what is this about her facebook
07:03

suzanne morphy apparently goes on her
07:06
facebook
07:07
at midnight that night after she spotted
07:10
that day at four
07:11
now i think we're talking about saturday
07:14
night
07:15
and she starts friending all these guys
07:17
who is she friending
07:18
i mean that's a good question nancy i've
07:20
spoken to barry moore a few multiple
07:22
times and he has not
07:23
once ever mentioned facebook or any
07:26
activities that suzanne had on facebook
07:28
he did mention that you know on sundays
07:31
she would typically like to take bike
07:33
rides
07:33
interesting joining me along with lauren
07:35
sharp farks21 and
07:38
ellenkalorincrimoline.com
07:39
mike king and chris mcdonough just both
07:42
of them
07:42
won has 40 years in law enforcement one
07:45
has 25
07:46
in uh as a cop 13 is homicide
07:50
first you guys just jump in and lauren
07:53
ek that goes for you too
07:55
if you have a fact that is relevant to
07:57
what we're talking about at that moment
07:59
mike king what can you tell me about
08:03
suzanne morphew reportedly
08:06
going on at midnight now listen
08:09
if i catch my husband like in a closet
08:13
friending people at midnight
08:14
i can tell you right now all he double
08:17
gonna break loose
08:18
because we get up at five o'clock in the
08:20
morning and hit the ground
08:21
running and um i would that that would
08:26
just make me
08:27
concerned what do you know mike king
08:29
yeah that's really the really the big
08:30
questions that keep popping up in these
08:32
red flags that we keep talking about
08:34
nancy and
08:35
we go back and we look at probabilities
08:37
versus possibilities and there are so
08:39
many stinking possibilities in a deal
08:41
like this but
08:42
we start thinking about what is really
08:44
probable and what is
08:46
probable based on suzanne's behavior
08:49
you sound like me making a closing
08:51
argument
08:52
what's probable and what's possible i
08:54
mean it's possible little green man flew
08:56
down from mars and took her right
08:58
but that's not probable what is probable
09:01
what's the likely what's her facebook
09:03
activity what's her routine i mean
09:06
to get one at midnight and start
09:07
friending people who was she friending
09:09
chris mcdonough
09:10
yeah sure when i hey nancy when i talked
09:12
to uh uh
09:14
andy uh he told me directly
09:17
that his older uh brother started to his
09:22
friends started getting facebook
09:23
messages
09:24
uh from suzanne and i mean that was just
09:28
like you gotta be kidding me
09:30
and so yeah to your point uh i'm
09:33
tracking you 100
09:35
it just doesn't fit when you say
09:38
facebook
09:39
messages so is this all these people are

crime stories with nancy grace
11:34
everybody we're talking about the
11:35
disappearance of suzanne morphew
11:37
and we've just come upon between lauren
11:40
scharf ellen killoran
11:42
and mike king chris mcdonough something
11:44
very interesting
11:45
what about it wendy patrick suddenly
11:47
she's up framing people she's known her
11:49
whole life
11:51
this is enormously suspicious this is a
11:53
huge
11:54
bright red flag routine custom practice
11:57
what somebody normally does what time
11:59
they normally go to bed
12:01
and everybody that's talking about
12:02
receiving requests from suzanne
12:04
no they're receiving friend requests
12:06
from her account
12:08
and therein lies the rub if she gets up
12:11
like you do nancy at 5 a.m i guarantee
12:13
you she's not up fronting people at
12:14
midnight
12:15
nor do we have any indication she uses
12:18
facebook a lot so
12:19
this is a this is something that is
12:21
probably one of the pieces of evidence
12:23
that's going to be
12:24
most important in trying to figure out
12:26
not only who else might have access to
12:28
her account
12:29
but whether or not she is still alive
12:32
where she is
12:32
why she would do this and if she has
12:34
access to facebook and it's really her
12:36
this probably is not the way she would
12:38
be spending her time at this time
12:40
and again according to chris mcdonough
12:42
and mike king
12:44
who are the co-hosts of profiles
12:48
and awesome awesome website
12:51
uh and podcast right guys let me ask you
12:54
about this chris mcdonough mike king
12:56
i'll just go to you mike
12:57
um a lot of people well actually just
13:01
been barry morphy the husband
13:03
has said law enforcement has bungled the
13:05
case from the beginning
13:07
and that he's their scapegoat
13:11
i'm sure that local police have pulled
13:14
up her facebook account and looked
13:16
at her activity to determine is this
13:19
kind of thing
13:20
she would do yeah exactly and i think
13:22
the thing that was so troubling to us
13:24
is he immediately throws out uh four
13:27
scenarios he
13:28
he talks about the bike ride and the
13:30
crash on the bike he then brings up
13:32
this wild story of a cougar attack and
13:35
then he
13:36
um brings in the boogeyman and and then
13:38
finally he starts pointing at well maybe
13:41
it's someone that's
13:42
it's known to her and so what we tried
13:44
to do is go down and just start looking
13:46
at those individually and breaking them
13:47
down and of course the first one and the
13:49
easiest one
13:50
to go after was the mountain lion story
13:53
well isn't it true
13:54
um that i do a lot of camping
13:57
a lot of rving uh worked in a national
14:00
forest it's my understanding when there
14:03
is an animal attack
14:05
there would be evidence of that there
14:06
would be blood at the spot
14:08
of the attack most likely you would see
14:11
drag marks
14:12
uh i mean the cougar cougar i'm doing
14:15
that with air quoties
14:16
would not put her body in their suv and
14:18
drive off with it
14:19
you would see drag marks you would see
14:22
indications the body had been dragged
14:23
and typically they don't drag
14:25
the body that far away they eat
14:29
it and they will leave behind maybe
14:32
bones clothing that is torn off the body
14:35
none of that existed
14:37
absolutely that was troubling to us
14:39
there was no crime scene no
14:41
attack scene no artifact on the ground
14:44
to suggest there was even a scuffle
14:46
everything that we could see from
14:48
looking at other predacious
14:50
movements is that there are drag marks
14:52
like a small deer beam drug even this is
14:54
a
14:55
woman who's over a hundred pound uh and
14:58
and dragging her would not be an easy
15:00
feat and the fact is that a cat is only
15:03
going to carry its prey
15:04
maybe 450 feet at a maximum
15:07
and then it's going to come back and
15:08
it's going to be kind of gruesome to say
15:10
but it's going to come back and consume
15:12
that for a number of days it just just
15:15
doesn't fit
15:16
you know to you chris mcdonough 25 years
15:19
cop 13 is homicide at the very beginning
15:23
morphy who has declared his innocence
15:26
let's just be firm about that stated
15:29
that
15:30
an animal attacked her but cops said at
15:31
the get-go this was no animal attack
15:33
do i have that part right yes yeah you
15:36
doing now
15:37
you know i'm learning more from andrew
15:39
moorman than i
15:41
i am through the in throughout the
15:43
entire process
15:45
um take a listen now to our friend alan
15:48
jeannette at cbs4 denver
15:50
the hardest thing she's a beloved member
15:52
of our family and
15:53
the sweetest person that you've ever met
15:55
the nephew of 49 year old suzanne
15:57
morphew talking about what it's like to
15:59
go through the difficulty of a search
16:01
that started
16:02
after she went missing during a sunday
16:04
bike ride family has said her husband
16:06
barry was out of town
16:08
in denver a friend called authorities
16:10
when morpheu
16:11
didn't return the bike was found on
16:13
sunday the day that she went missing
16:15
the sheriff has not yet shared
16:16
information on the bike but has told
16:18
cbs4 the reason for her disappearance is
16:20
probably not animals extensive searching
16:24
in chaffey county about 20 miles west of
16:26
salida
16:26
has not brought an answer on what
16:28
happened to more few
16:30
you know to lauren schar fox 21 news you
16:33
spoke with barry morphy who says he was
16:35
devastated looking for his wife putting
16:38
together the pieces
16:39
he refused to do an in-person interview
16:42
and did not
16:42
want your phone interview recorded
16:45
morpheus suggested suzanne may have been
16:48
attacked by an
16:49
animal a run-in with an unknown person
16:51
or someone she knew
16:54
what tell me what happened on that phone
16:56
call
16:57
yeah nancy so i've spoken to him
16:59
multiple times and the first time
17:01
he did mention the attack on a mountain
17:03
or a mountain lion attack
17:05
but the second interview i did with him
17:07
over the phone where i shared
17:10
uh his audio from that he he didn't
17:13
mention the mountain lion at all
17:15
he he strictly talked about what had
17:17
happened
17:18
that weekend in broomfield and how his
17:22
employees
17:23
were there trying to fix a retaining
17:25
wall in broomfield and
17:27
and that's where he was coming back from
17:29
okay wait a minute
17:30
he said he was on his way back
17:34
when he got the call about suzanne
17:35
missing back to salida
17:38
from broomfield because i thought he was
17:40
in broomfield
17:42
when he got the call yes he was there
17:45
supposedly
17:45
meeting with other people to work on the
17:48
construction site
17:50
and that's when he got the call but
17:53
you're telling me he was already
17:54
on his way back yeah before having even
17:58
met up with his
17:59
co-workers yes the co-workers tell me
18:02
they never saw barry
18:03
that weekend but what does he say yeah
18:06
he he
18:07
he never mentioned that he saw his
18:08
co-workers at all either
18:10
no no what i mean is he goes all the way
18:13
out of town
18:14
uh mike king he goes all the way out of
18:16
town for a job
18:18
i believe on saturday night every
18:21
indication we have
18:22
is that he leaves sunday morning at 5 00
18:25
a.m
18:30
and then uh there's there's question
18:32
about at what time he hears this
18:34
even the most optimal and the most
18:36
optimistic
18:37
time is that he gets the word at 5 pm
18:40
but he still doesn't get home until
18:42
nine o'clock if we follow the draper
18:44
video and the
18:45
in the uh statements that barry makes in
18:47
the draper video
18:48
so that's four hours to make a two hour
18:51
drive which is also a little bit odd
18:53
when did he have the co-workers show up
18:55
saturday morning
19:01
so by that point he had already left
19:04
right chris mcdonough because what
19:06
lauren trump is saying is that
19:08
he was already on his way back home
19:11
when he got the news that's what he told
19:14
her yeah and that's one of the
19:16
interesting things here nancy as his
19:17
timeline is so
19:20
messed up and and i it actually gets
19:22
even a little bit better because
19:24
during the search process uh
19:27
there was a clerk that i actually
19:29
interviewed thanks to lauren
19:31
in terms of she she had talked to her
19:33
firsthand at that supermarket
19:34
but i found a boy who works there
19:39
him outside and what was interesting
19:41
about the conversation
19:43
was he looks out uh there's their store
19:46
is closed
19:46
right it's it's in the in the early
19:50
evening hours and
19:52
long story short he looks out and sees
19:54
barry going through the trash
19:56
outside and he's like
20:00
who's this guy and he knocks on the door
20:02
the door opens
20:03
and the first thing out of his mouth
20:06
according to this witness
20:07
was hey i'm looking for a baby blue
20:10
bicycle helmet
20:11
have you seen a baby blue bicycle helmet
20:13
in the trash
20:15
and the clerk goes what and then the
20:18
manager steps up and says can we help
20:20
you and this is where the emptiness
20:23
note is written about what suzanne's
20:25
wearing
20:26
uh the bike helmet uh et cetera but no
20:28
description of suzanne
20:31
that was a huge huge red flag that mike
20:34
and i
20:35
uh you know put together along with
20:37
lauren early on
20:38
uh during this situation so that's new
20:41
information that
20:42
white france's first time
20:49
[Music]
20:54
crime stories with nancy grace
20:58
guys in the last hours we're getting a
21:01
flood of information about the
21:03
disappearance of suzanne morphew
21:06
her brother not her husband seems to be
21:08
leading the crusade to find her
21:11
with me an awesome panel including ellen
21:13
calor in crime online lauren scharf
21:16
fox 21 mike king chris mcdonough from
21:19
profiling evil
21:20
wendy patrick and dr angela arnold
21:23
i want to go back to what you were just
21:25
telling me
21:26
with me chris mcdonough mike king mike
21:28
king chris is saying that
21:30
somebody looks out a window and sees
21:32
morphew the husband
21:34
digging through trash when asked hey
21:36
what are you doing he says have you seen
21:38
a baby blue
21:39
bike helmet who spotted him
21:43
where is this and when is it i didn't
21:45
get that
21:46
yeah good it's the little market right
21:49
in town
21:50
and that's the it is the employee
21:53
a young man who's working there who
21:55
first notices this and has the first
21:57
conversation and then the store manager
22:00
actually has a conversation provides
22:03
barry with a piece of paper to write the
22:05
note that we now have
22:06
a copy of that says he's looking for the
22:08
blue helmet
22:10
the thing that was so odd is he's in the
22:12
garbage and the first thing out of his
22:13
mouth is i'm looking for a blue helmet
22:16
oh holy cow where did that come from
22:18
what day was this
22:20
it was tuesday the following uh couple
22:23
days after suzanne was reported missing
22:25
on that sunday why would he be looking
22:27
in a dump for that if he thought that
22:29
she had had a crash or been taken
22:31
by an animal why would he be looking
22:34
in the trash behind the little market
22:37
for a blue helmet and
22:39
another thing lauren scharf am i correct
22:42
that he told you he did not want that
22:43
phone call recorded
22:44
he did not want to do an in-person
22:45
interview yes that first um
22:48
call that was lasted 30 minutes yeah he
22:50
did not want that uh
22:52
audio shared and then um a couple weeks
22:55
later
22:55
he calls me back for an hour and that's
22:57
the audio that i shared
22:59
you know i just keep thinking about
23:02
everything you're telling me right now
23:04
and i'm projecting
23:06
i'm projecting when i learned my fiance
23:10
had been murdered
23:11
i remember the moment exactly
23:14
i'll never forget it maybe i wish i
23:16
could forget it
23:17
no no no i need to know and i need to
23:19
remember
23:20
but after all this time i remember it
23:22
like it was yesterday and i'm not
23:24
able to nail down chris mcdonald
23:28
ellen kellorn if you know just jump in
23:30
ellen don't hang back
23:32
did he learn his wife was missing
23:37
at the hotel where he had
23:40
left sunday morning from home presumably
23:43
leaving her alive and well
23:45
he drives about three hours away away
23:48
for a job did he learn
23:50
there or was he already in a route
23:54
back home because why do you bring a
23:56
whole crew of people to come do a
23:58
construction site
24:00
build a retainer wall and then you don't
24:02
stay to meet them i thought the whole
24:03
point was
24:04
he was going to scope the site on
24:06
mother's day
24:07
and was going to meet up with them
24:11
when did he learn chris mcdonna
24:14
what is he saying about when he learned
24:18
suzanne's missing well there's a couple
24:20
of uh
24:21
different types or different time frames
24:24
nancy
24:24
one of them is around five o'clock
24:27
p.m sunday the other is a possibility of
24:32
mid-afternoon sunday
24:33
and both of these uh one is from
24:36
uh barry himself the 5 pm the others
24:39
from
24:40
employees because when they got up there
24:43
on sunday
24:44
it was kind of a rush thing uh it was a
24:46
situation where
24:48
you know he basically calls him and says
24:50
you know calls one
24:51
particular witness and says look we got
24:53
to get up there we got this job we got
24:55
to fix this wall etc i'll meet you up
24:57
there
24:58
well that other that other employee and
25:00
i'll let
25:01
uh lauren speak to this that employee
25:04
uh basically says that around 4 00 a.m
25:08
not to confuse the issue but around 4 00
25:11
a.m senators
25:13
sunday morning she believes she hears
25:16
barry's truck
25:17
uh outside of her apartment and so
25:20
she gets into a panic like all right we
25:23
got to get going
25:24
and by that time you know he's gone
25:27
and then the phone calls comes into this
25:29
person who says hey get the crew
25:31
together
25:32
i'll meet you up there and by that time
25:34
they're on the road around 11 00 a.m
25:37
sunday and so by that so it's between
25:39
11.
25:40
okay this is getting very convoluted
25:44
um yeah and that's not your fault chris
25:47
mcdonough
25:48
is because the nature of the way we're
25:49
learning the facts we're getting
25:51
different stories
25:52
ek ellen killorn crime online when do we
25:56
think
25:56
morpheus says he learned his wife is
25:58
missing he told me
26:00
that he left around five o'clock when he
26:02
learned that uh
26:04
you know he had a family emergency he
26:06
called his crew
26:07
around six thirds you're gonna have to
26:09
figure it out on their own
26:11
and uh that all they knew was that it
26:14
was a family emergency
26:15
hold on is this lauren talking lauren
26:18
okay tell me again did you say
26:19
five he learned at five p.m 5 p.m
26:22
sunday and she was reported missing
26:25
at least from the um you know
26:27
communication center in chaffee county
26:30
was at 5 40 6 00 p.m okay
26:33
wait a minute question to you lauren
26:35
scharf what time do they
26:36
i'm calling them co-workers i don't know
26:39
that they actually work together they
26:40
were summoned by him
26:42
to come to this to the scene to build a
26:43
retainer wall what time did they get
26:46
there and he was already gone lauren
26:47
they didn't even leave salida until
26:50
6 30. so they didn't even see each other
26:53
at all
26:54
okay guys when they were leaving they
26:56
got a call saying
26:57
he wasn't going to be there because of a
26:59
family emergency but to go ahead and
27:01
start the project
27:03
on monday morning take a listen to
27:05
suzanne's
27:06
brother andrew moorman speaking to
27:10
our friend dr phil the evi information
27:12
when he struck didn't line up though
27:14
he said he saw her at 5 00 a.m and he
27:16
did not
27:17
and how do you know that testimony from
27:20
an employee that he was rambling down
27:21
the road texting people at four in the
27:23
morning trying to get him to go to
27:24
broome field
27:25
so can't be at home at five
27:29
and talking to somebody on the road at
27:31
four right
27:32
i just so that the timeline doesn't add
27:35
up at all
27:36
yeah not at all you've got two nieces
27:38
malory
27:39
who's now 22 and macy who's 16.
27:42
would she go off riding by herself or
27:44
would she be in contact with them would
27:47
she go off the radar
27:49
for seven days and and have no
27:52
social media presence no presence
27:55
electronically for that period of time
27:58
with with her daughters
27:59
no absolutely not so what we're learning
28:02
from suzanne's mother
28:04
he says the evi i guess that's the
28:07
navigation on morphe's truck
28:09
doesn't fit what are we talking about
28:13
ellen calorin crime online
28:15
that is all he said but what it seems to
28:18
be
28:18
is that the whatever data tracking
28:21
device
28:22
was on murphy's truck barry morphy's
28:24
truck does not
28:25
line up with where he told police he was
28:29
at any at a given time of the of that
28:32
weekend
28:33
now police have never once commented
28:37
on his alibi or confirmed it
28:40
so i think that part of the reason why
28:42
there's so much confusion about this
28:44
timeline
28:44
is that a big a big part of this
28:47
timeline so far
28:48
has come from barry who may be
28:50
contradicting himself
28:52
there is a lot of confusion i don't
28:54
think that anyone i certainly can't say
28:55
with any certainty
28:56
where i think barry murphy was at you
28:59
know
29:00
every hour of the sunday that suzanne
29:03
morpheu
29:04
went missing so i would really like to
29:06
know
29:07
what he told police and how much does
29:10
what the data shows deviate from what he
29:13
told police
29:14
to dr angela arnold psychiatrist joining
29:16
me out of atlanta dr angie
29:18
i can tell you right now where i was and
29:21
where my husband was where my children
29:23
were
29:23
this past sunday and the sunday before
29:26
that i may have to look at the calendar
29:28
to figure out where we were the sunday
29:29
before that
29:30
but i know how can there be that much
29:33
confusion
29:34
surrounding the space of 10 hours well
29:37
nancy it sounds to me
29:39
that you know when people are trying to
29:41
hide something and when they're
29:43
when they may not be they be being
29:45
truthful about something
29:47
they have to keep rearranging their
29:49
story and then they forget what they say
29:52
and with all of the experts that you
29:54
have on your panel today and this is so
29:56
hard for everybody to put together
29:58
i think it's so hard for everyone to put
30:00
together because
30:01
there's so many lies that are interwoven
30:03
in this let me remind
30:05
everybody that suzanne morphy's husband
30:07
barry morphew insists he
30:09
is innocent has nothing to do with
30:11
suzanne's disappearance
30:13
[Music]
30:20
crime stories with nancy grace we are
30:23
talking about the disappearance of a
30:24
gorgeous young mom
30:25
suzanne morphew now i also understand
30:29
that in the last hours the
30:31
we are learning their family home has
30:33
been put
30:34
up for sale at about for about 1.759
30:38
million dollars
30:41
you know to you mike king i mean i still
30:45
have my fiance's
30:48
pictures baseball gloves baseball
30:51
there's letters to me
30:52
i have all that that i see every day
30:57
it would be hard until i knew the answer
31:00
as to her disappearance that i would
31:01
sell the home
31:02
maybe there's some kind of financial
31:04
problem that i don't know about
31:06
but if she could come home i would want
31:08
the home to be there
31:10
until this case is resolved you know
31:12
what that's a personal
31:14
uh opinion and i know we're going round
31:16
and round about the timeline
31:18
mike but that's the way investigations
31:20
are if you sat
31:22
me down with my investigator working on
31:24
a case
31:25
these are exactly the way we would be
31:27
talking about well what is this and what
31:29
is that but didn't he say this and
31:30
didn't they say that
31:31
so mike what times
31:35
do we believe more few claims he learned
31:39
his wife was missing
31:40
mike king you know i just have to go
31:43
back to the one the one solid piece is
31:46
uh his testimony uh to lauren scharf
31:49
where he says i left the home at five
31:51
a.m and she was sleeping
31:53
so even even with that then we have to
31:56
look at other evidence that has popped
31:58
up that we haven't been able to
32:00
corroborate we're like you we have to
32:02
live on what social media is sharing but
32:04
suggestions that she was abruptly ending
32:07
conversation the day before
32:09
on facebook and then odd behavior later
32:12
into the evening on
32:14
facebook that was completely out of
32:15
character so we can start to establish
32:17
what seems like a more credible
32:19
timeline and then of course the the idea
32:22
of when do the
32:23
email messages or the text messages
32:25
start on mother's day wishing her well
32:27
to kind of establish a
32:29
communication baseline and then sending
32:33
the neighbor over once and then
32:34
twice uh and and the response to return
32:37
home and then again the time to get home
32:42
nancy i want to tell you something barry
32:44
did admit one
32:45
inconsistency to me about his timeline
32:48
that he provided to investigators
32:50
but it was about uh it was he told me it
32:52
was a mechanical thing to his bobcat
32:55
that's the one thing that he said that
32:57
he mistakenly
32:59
had confused and you know he said
33:02
you know i just found out my wife was
33:04
missing and um
33:05
i i didn't have that timeline right as
33:08
far as what was wrong
33:10
mechanically with his bobcats he
33:11
wouldn't tell me what would the bobcat
33:13
have to do with the timeline
33:15
he he the one of the employees told me
33:19
that he was supposed to bring that to
33:21
broomfield for that job site but they
33:24
never had it when they got there
33:26
it was it was not there and from what
33:28
i'm understanding the brother is saying
33:30
chris mcdonough
33:32
is that the co-workers as i'm calling
33:36
them
33:37
said they're getting texts at 4 00 a.m
33:40
from barry morpheus saying
33:42
he is on the road heading to broomfield
33:46
and he's trying to get a team gathered
33:49
to go build a retainer wall that's
33:52
contrary
33:53
to him telling lauren scharf he left his
33:55
wife at 5 00 a.m
33:57
alive and well asleep soundly asleep the
34:00
co-workers are saying he was texting
34:02
from the road
34:03
to broomfield at 4 00 am chris
34:06
yeah no that's a good point mitch and i
34:08
think this
34:09
again it goes towards that confusion
34:13
uh where you know he's trying to you
34:15
know cross over and dovetail
34:17
uh into everything but what we have from
34:21
barry himself like mike said was that at
34:24
0-500 uh you know in the morning he
34:27
leaves suzanne in bed
34:29
we have from one of the workers uh that
34:32
was reported to warren
34:34
that she believes she hears his truck
34:37
outside of her apartment she says
34:39
i know it's very strong i don't look out
34:41
but i know it's his so
34:42
that's kind of you know a little
34:44
speculation their relationship to
34:47
you know her testimony uh but
34:50
um so that that's kind of nailed down
34:52
the timeline and annual age
34:54
that it went a little bit further uh i
34:57
don't have that information as to how
34:59
you know he came up with 4am texting uh
35:02
but we do know there was a we're getting
35:04
that from one of the co-workers they're
35:06
the ones saying
35:07
morpheus texting them 4 a.m calling them
35:10
trying to get a team together to go
35:12
build a retainer wall that's
35:14
their saying that and certainly local
35:17
police can
35:17
look at their cell phones and get their
35:20
cell phone records
35:21
and find that out did they have an
35:23
incoming call at 4 00 am
35:25
which would be lie the statement he was
35:27
still at home at 5 00 a.m
35:29
but you know you just mentioned so
35:33
so many things uh that are
35:36
unusual to me let's take a listen now to
35:38
andy mormont speaking of dr phil sarkett
35:41
34.
35:42
what do you think happened to her and
35:44
why let me just say this she's hidden
35:46
too well
35:47
phil her bicycle was planted there she
35:50
was never on it
35:52
i think she was abducted and in this
35:54
case murdered
35:55
abducted taken to a second location and
35:58
then
35:59
ultimately murdered yeah
36:02
i i don't think she was taken to a
36:03
second location i think it happened at
36:04
home
36:05
so you think she was murdered and then
36:07
the body was taken to a second location
36:10
correct and you think her husband is the
36:13
one that did this
36:15
well based on behaviors and uh things
36:19
that have happened yeah i do actually
36:21
and i pray it's not you certainly hope
36:24
it's not
36:24
and and i understand that you can't say
36:26
that it is
36:27
but you've just been suspicious of that
36:30
for quite some time correct
36:32
i have yeah let me understand something
36:36
mike king 40 years law evil dot com
36:38
enforcementprofilingevil.com
36:40
with chris mcdonoughprofilingevil.com
36:44
if someone got on national tv
36:47
and said i committed a crime
36:50
i would sue them immediately
36:54
immediately i mean of course unless it
36:57
was true
36:58
then i would hide okay so has there been
37:01
any
37:02
fallout from the brother going on dr
37:04
phil for pete's sake and saying he
37:06
thinks his bro
37:07
his brother-in-law committed murder has
37:09
there been a lawsuit or any
37:10
any uh cease and desist letters that we
37:13
know of
37:14
i i don't know of anything nancy i mean
37:18
andy would have to ask answer that
37:20
question let me ask you a question about
37:22
uh chris mcdonough just said mike king
37:25
that the female co-worker
37:29
said she recognized barry morphy's truck
37:34
now but my husband comes in the door
37:37
i know it's him he opens the door close
37:40
it
37:40
then there's a really long pause
37:44
i don't know what he's doing in the
37:45
laundry room not the laundry
37:48
but then i hear a certain gate coming
37:51
down the hall i know that's david
37:53
okay different if it's john david the
37:56
door slams
37:57
next thing you know running with lucy
37:59
you don't hear anything
38:00
she's like a ghost you don't even hear
38:02
the door suddenly she's just there
38:04
okay so how does the co-worker
38:09
know the sound of barry morphy's truck
38:13
i'm curious is this the same female
38:15
co-worker that has
38:16
taken to uh the media and said we're not
38:20
having an affair
38:21
you know that that's really interesting
38:22
and i think about you as the prosecutor
38:24
and the other prosecutor on the
38:26
on the show with us today there are
38:28
cases where we use that kind of evidence
38:31
as
38:31
parts of that circumstantial evidence to
38:33
prove a point sometimes it smells
38:35
sometimes it sounds
38:36
in this case the the individual
38:39
indicated that it was a very specific
38:41
sound that this vehicle has
38:42
she's been in the vehicle many times she
38:45
understands the sounds
38:46
when she heard it there was no question
38:48
in her mind and so you gotta kind of
38:50
weigh it
38:50
pretty well or maybe it's because hello
38:53
she works with him
38:54
they have a construction company going
38:56
and she's in that truck
38:58
all the time it reminds me i'm sure none
39:01
of you
39:02
remember the aristocats where where one
39:05
of the uh
39:06
investigator dogs can hold his ear up
39:08
and he can tell
39:10
what kind of car what model would make
39:12
and and there's
39:13
flat uh low air in one tire i mean when
39:16
you hear something so many times you
39:18
recognize it
39:19
i want to remind everyone that this is a
39:22
search for the truth
39:23
not railroading anybody morpheus says
39:27
he's innocent
39:30
that's what he says and he has not been
39:32
named a suspect and he has not been
39:34
arrested
39:36
so what happened to suzanne
39:40
morphy nancy grace crime story signing
39:44
off
39:45
goodbye friend

Would the search warrants for the house have to be because LE thinks Barry has something to do with it or could it simply be that is the last place she was known to be? Do they have to be specific as in looking for specific items or if someone is just missing can they be more general to say looking for evidence of a crime?

In your opinion, what type of evidence would be needed in order to get a search warrant for that other location? I thought I read the owner gave permission and they still needed the search warrant. Would a judge need less evidence/proof to give a warrant if the owner of the property gives permission?

Specifically, they need to show particular knowledge and facts that would lead a reasonable person to believe a crime has been committed or is going to be committed at the location to be searched and that evidence of such may be found there.

Permission to search does not lower that standard.

Sooo, we have BM saying there were two witnesses who saw SM Sunday, and then AM saying she was seen at sandwich
shop at 4:00 Sun.
If AM is correct, I just can’t fit BM into timeline. Therefore, is this another of AMs poor memory or miss statements?
Was she seen or not? Or Is AMs time off?

I’m gonna doubt AM on this one, judging by timing of searches...I think the daughters’ attempts to contact SM had to begin before 4pm. JMVHO more salt...

After hearing that MG said she heard BM’s truck outside her house at 4 am I tend to agree. That makes no sense why he would drive there and leave without calling her or knocking on her door. Was he at MG’s house? Like inside? With her? Speculating not accusing...
I am considering that BM may have been in the area of MG’s house with the bobcat and truck. I hope LE has checked that vicinity. What better way to ascertain that she was at home and asleep than to drive by her house and text her while in the general area? IMO I sincerely hope she has nothing to do with this but she alleged BM was at the Salida work sight Friday night and that he picked her up and took her home after early release work day on Saturday. Then she claims he reappeared Sunday morning at 4 am. He was in control of both her travel and her location during these times. IMO

Are we adding the 1600 alleged sighting “grabbing a sandwich” recently shared via Dr. Phil by AM?

Really wish we could get confirmation of that “Sandwich” sighting. And more info about BM digging through trash at the Poncha Market for the blue helmet, (if that is even true).

I have been considering a possibility that BM took Suzanne for a ride that afternoon and killed her - either in the car or they got out for a “hike” off the highway and he killed and dumped her. He may not have needed to haul her anywhere with the bobcat.

It is even possible that some or all of the texts with her friend were being exchanged from somewhere away from home.

In addition to all of the cell and GPS/EVI records for BM, SM’s cell records may tell a story of their own.

So while all these search warrants were being executed and poured over by LE, what was BM thinking?

BM has a pretty good idea if his gps data and cell phone are going to betray him.

And if he is screwed, wouldn’t BM already know it?
Good point. One guess would be he was off the grid for a few hours, perhaps left his phone at home while hiding SM under cover of darkness during the night/wee hours of morning, using a vehicle that doesn’t have GPS tracking and/or could he have disabled tracking device in vehicle he used-I have no idea if that is even possible. It would help to explain his arrogance if LE can’t prove where he was and what he was doing for several hours. I don’t think BM is very smart, but don’t most people today know they can be tracked via their phones, gps, etc??

IMO

AM said the sandwich shop sighting was Saturday.

Suzanne Morphew’s brother shares new details about her last known sighting and strange activity on his sister’s Facebook page hours before she was reported missing
