A lot to digest. Looking forward to discussion of new press release!
Initially, AM cited that SM was planning on traveling to attend the wedding so it came as a surprise to most that the wedding was held on May 10. AM later confirmed plans changed due to COVID. Reportedly, the event was very small with vows and reception held at the home of the bride.
This is far more detailed info from Spezze than any previous press releases in MOO.
Awesome update by Sheriff Spezze!
For those who've been fretting, this case is obviously far from going cold, as evidenced by key phrases such as, "continues to move forward," "will conduct additional searches," "remains a priority," "continues to focus," etc.
Translation: We're still working this case. Tenaciously.
Also, the last bit about reaching out to people who interacted with Suzanne on SM is a new twist.
It sounds like she was active on numerous SM platforms.
It also sounds like LE suspects some people may know more than they're sharing.
Well that sure is interesting. Very carefully worded too.
I'm reading this as SM confided in friends she loved dearly, and CCSO seeking as much circumstantial evidence as is out there to strengthen the case they've built thus far. MOO
ETA: Moorman also said he believes police are trying to “fill their envelope before they seal it.”

It is and that very encouraging. It feels like a final last push before a January 1st arrest.
He is specifically targeting her online friends. Also assuring people that he will work with them if they are afraid that they might get others in trouble. IE, he wants Suzanne's killer and maybe not so much interested in other illegal activity at this juncture.
I also wonder if he is speaking to members in the DV group, who are afraid that their spouses will find out they had reached out for help. Moo
Thank you for clarifying this.
In this case, is it safe to assume SM was not a “no show” for the virtual wedding? Plans changed again due to Covid and it was a more private event. That’s how I’m reading this. IMO

Confirming that the last person to see her alive was none other than BLM. My, my, my.
ETA: Oh, and not one mention of a bike ride.
I'm not reading any Saturday citing at a sandwich shop, or a request by the sheriff seeking to corroborate if you saw SM & BM out and about together on Saturday (giving legs to BM's story of spending time with his wife after leaving the riverside property).
Nope, investigators know BM was last to see SM alive-- they know when and what time.
It was discussed in one of the PE videos, although I'm not sure which one. Maybe someone else remembers.
Anyway, according to AM, it was an elk "rack" that was described as leaning up against the house when LE went there.
So I guess the question is, where is the rest of the elk? Apparently BM found it, so we don't know what happened to the body, or meat, that came from the elk. If it was road kill, the meat would only be fresh for a certain amount of time.
Yes, more informal and uploaded on youtube by the bride & groom. IMO, there is no evidence that SM saw or participated in the event virtually on May 10.
They state that Suzanne was last seen by her husband on May 10th. Does that mean that they confirmed his story that she was in bed when he left? Or that she was alive on Sunday morning?
At least now it's confirmed that she wasn't seen on a bike ride that day.
Such careful wording in the press release.
Last seen on May 10th by BM.
Let me guess. Between midnight and 4 am. Sleeping. In the most metaphysical of senses.
That's a problem.
I'm calling it. Felony Friday before Felony February.
Was SM a member of an online DV support group? I don't remember reading that, but know I have missed plenty. In what context? Where was this learned? MOO
I recall that during the same PE session, Mike King, an avid, experienced hunter, put to rest for me that this was not likely a
"fresh" kill. (i.e., Antler shedding, the velvet dries (actually skin) and looks gruesome). MOO
I’m going to go in a different direction with the latest press release. I’m stuck here at the moment.
Subject to change as I continue to consider the latest from CCSO.
LE is appealing to her friends, who they are stressing SM was devoted to. What do these friends maybe know? Does someone know SM’s intentions and perhaps where she was heading or who she was communicating with on social media? I know, I know, wild thinking perhaps but... it’s possible LE is thinking info was withheld, maybe to protect SM and friend(s) might think they’re in trouble for not coming forward with that info. Worst case scenario something unlawful happened to Suzanne, according to LE. Just interesting choice of words. For me, at this moment, I think this press release puts BM off to the side... slightly for *me*. IMO
“We thank you, our community, for your assistance, concern and patience,” said Chaffee County Sheriff John Spezze. “Suzanne is missing. We in law enforcement hope for the best but prepare for the worst. The worst-case scenario is that something unlawful occurred, and as such we go about our investigation ensuring we are working within the rules of law and treating everything we learn as potential evidence for court.”
In one aspect of the case, the task force continues to focus on Suzanne Morphew’s social media presence as part of the investigation. Investigators say Suzanne kept in touch with friends she loved dearly. They also believe that sometimes in these types of cases that people don’t come forward with information for concern that they may get someone in trouble. To those who may be fearful to come forward, they can reach out anonymously. Once investigators know your concerns, they can address them.
This is a profound post!
