    ITA. Yet, didn't he refuse to let Suzanne use any kind of drug when she was suffering from cancer? IF this is true, it's mean and abusive.

    I think he's a Gatorade guy, but you could be right. Wonder if he drinks coffee. JMO

    That was true according to AM. And yes, that is mean and abusive. I think that was another aspect of his control over his wife.

    Thank God Barry is doing his part, like countless other family members of a missing person have done before him, and will continue to do.

    There is nothing more important than keeping the case in the news, as that can lead to a resolution.

    It’s almost as if Barry doesn’t want Suzanne’s case to be publicized, and her killer brought to justice.

    I wish we had more to report on the missing mom from Salida. Keeping her name and the case at the forefront of the news is important. #suzannemorphew #findingsuzannemorphew

    I just came across this LS video, an interview with Barry's uncle. I don't remember ever seeing this before, so here it is for anyone interested. (It's listed as "unlisted" on LS's page, does that mean she posted it but it was private until now? Has anyone else seen this before?)

    I don't think I ever saw the video, but I do remember reading about the interview with Uncle Bob and how he said that Suzanne was the nicest person you'd ever meet and they had a very happy marriage and the family was very upset about her disappearance. He said he didn't believe BM had anything to do with it. I think he also mentioned that he had not seen them in a couple of years.

    Good points about uncle Bob; although sometimes couples can put up a united front in the presence of family members esp. if they don't visit them very often.

    A lot can change in a couple of years.

    I wonder if Suzanne had started standing up for herself and began to object to BM 'handling' all of the financial decisions ?

    Hey Everyone,

    Thank you for keeping Suzanne's case going. It is hard when there is not new information.

    I want to clear something up.

    Some have posted that Barry would not let Suzanne have medicine when she was fighting cancer. That is a huge charge. What I understand happened was Barry did not want Suzanne using pot for her pain and may have prevented her from using pot.. While this is pretty obnoxious on its own it is different than not allowing her to have her medicine.

    If anyone can find what Andy Moorman said then post it with a link back to the info that would be great.

    If Andy said this on a podcast we do not allow as a source we will allow a link back to that source this one time so we can clear up this part of the story.

    Thanks,
    Tricia

    I agree that could help explain what happened.

    I havent had much to add lately for this case and I am waiting on justice to prevail. I did just see another crime show just the other day and they were talking about steroid use and they claimed that it can cause people to go into a rage and go off the handle at the smallest things that will sometimes set them off. Link at bottom for some studies on it.

    When that other crime show came on and started talking about steroid use, I immediately thought of this case and that it could be possible in this case. We heard him tell us that he had gotten "permission" from SM to work on Mothers Day. We also heard about what he told MG on Saturday after the Salida site work ended early that day that he had to go home to make the wife happy.

    These sorts of things make me wonder if the working on weekends and working on special days like Mothers Day was a particular bone of contention. Im not convinced SM had agreed to him working at all that weekend. And especially if she knew there was a certain female that would be out of town working with him.

    If abuse of steroids was involved in this case then a small argument could have turned into something much worse.

    Just to clear it up:

    suzanne wanted to try some marijuana
    when she was going through her
    chemotherapy because she'd heard that
    really eased a lot of the symptoms
    and he was so against that and i know at
    one time i think it was 2013
    she went through a period there where
    she kind of had a breakdown
    and i think she got an anti-depressant
    or something to help her get out of that slump
    and i know he was so against that he
    browbeat her over that almost every day

    Good after noon all. First time posting at WS but not actually new. Been lurking for a long time.
    Whenever someone mentions the mountain lion I keep thinking of my friend in high school. Here is the article.

    14 January 1991 About 1:00 pm, after a pepperoni pizza lunch at 7-Eleven, during 5th period at his school, 18-year-old Scott Lancaster was killed while jogging on a trail above his high school in Idaho Springs, Colorado. The youth was attacked by a mountain lion and drug yards uphill before his death. The 130 pound boy clutched at vegetation and uprooted brush as the lion pulled him to the killing ground. Though just a few hundred yards from his high school, any of Scott's screams for help went unheard. A couple of days later, Scott's body was found, guarded by the very lion that killed him and had been feeding on the boy. The healthy, male cougar was shot by hunters called to the scene. Lancaster was buried following a closed casket ceremony. This was the first death ever in Colorado from a lion attack.

    So this to me even debunks his whole theory of a mountain lion. There is no way a mountain lion could take her and not leave any trace.

    "Probable Cause" In Colorado For Traffic Stops, Searches And Arrests

    Yes, either a crime has been committed in the house _OR_ evidence of a crime might be found there (not necessarily that the crime occurred there).

    I'm not sure a pristine bike nor a discarded helmet alone carry enough weight to justify SW, negating all other elements we think we know (SM alone, BM not home, DDs not home, no known sightings).

    But, we have a missing person; no reported (AFAWK) sighting of SM other than BM's claimed "5:00 AM" sighting of SM sleeping in bed.

    There is no reported sighting (AFAWK) of SM out and about riding a bike.

    It stands to reason LE would want to search the house and a judge would likely sign off on a SW given those exigent circumstances.

    BM, being the spouse, naturally comes under at least a measured amount of suspicion. Due diligence.

    Even if there were signs of a struggle at the alleged location of bike discovery and/or even if the bike showed damage, if I were leading the investigation I would seek a SW for the house given the circumstances: SM was home alone, not seen since "5:00 AM" and did the perp(s) return to the house to rob after abducting and/or disappearing SM?

    This is reasonable observation.

    Now... add to that what we've witnessed and did not witness, that "measured amount of suspicion" has ticked up quite a bit; he certainly hasn't done himself any favors... other than to not have his image recorded during interviews... because maybe he realizes body language experts would have had a field day.

    TN.

    He jump in to the fire early on in efforts to help, he was witness to certain behaviors that, when interpreted later after certain enlightenment, might be significant to resolving suspicions of future actions and bolstering evidence (circumstantial and direct).

    IMO Suzanne was against even medical use. she was a counselor for a youth group and an advocate for no drugs within that group, so it makes more sense, that this was SM POV as well.

    Andy said that Suzanne wanted to try marijuana, and Barry was against it (see link provided by @Ontario Mom)

    So no, it was apparently not her POV.
