    I feel like everything has gone cold.

    Hoping I’m wrong and LE knows a lot more than they are letting on.

    I’ve been thinking about it and I would definitely call 911. I would worry about feeling responsible if something did happen and I could have helped by calling for help at the earliest point. I know that’s not how everyone feels but personally I’d rather the police tell me it’s nothing than having to live with the guilt if it was an emergency.

    I'm basing my assumption on my own life experience, thanks. I would hope SM would take take the advice of her own physician.

    The neighbor “telling the truth,” is a false premise. The question isn’t if she is being honest, it’s what the underlying facts are.

    Did she see Suzanne go for a bike ride?”

    Or is she merely relaying what she was told?”

    If the former occurred, then I’ve never seen anything like it. No timeline, no clothing description, and law enforcement behavior that doesn’t fit with some sort of abduction

    I admit I'm interested in the person who sent the email.
    In a nosy way.
    Might mean nothing.
    Maybe LE asked the reporter to withhold the name ?

    ‘They can’t find her’: Message to church group shows desperate plea in early days of search for missing Colorado mom Suzanne Morphew [REPORT] – Crime Online

    Sooo... "...just beside himself..."
    Was he nervous ? Frantic ? Angry at the kidnapper ?
    What ???
    If he was beside himself, why did he tell the media it was "...too soon..." to make a public plea and why didn't he want to take questions ?

    The time to help LE help you is immediately, at a public press conference.
    Let reporters ask you questions and give a description of what she was wearing.
    Etc.

    What about a recent photo and not one from 2019 ?
    What was she wearing ?
    Why not a photo or description about the bike ?
    And why is LE not releasing the description of the bike ?
    Was it clean ?
    Or was it dirty and dusty ?
    Were Suzanne's prints on it or was it wiped down by someone (i.e., the mystery kidnapper) ?

    Where is her bike helmet ? At the house ?
    Left on the bike path ?

    Who kidnaps a woman and takes time to undo and discard her helmet --or any other item, for that matter ?

    So many unanswered questions.

    Do you know if this is state or federal land? Thanks.

    I'm pretty confident LE knows the underlying facts. I believe the neighbor was told Suzanne planned a bike ride and the source of the information was either Suzanne told her directly or someone Suzanne spoke to prior to the bike ride told the neighbor and asked the neighbor to check the house because Suzanne wasn't answering her phone.

    Conflicting stories indeed! She crashed and was eaten by a wild animal before church, but, if that didn't happen she was kidnapped. Here's $200,000 for the kidnapper, no questions asked.
    I can't wait to hear story #3.

    Yes, I would hope the same, too. The point I was attempting to make is that we just don't know the specifics of her health situation, so without those facts, making assumptions about it could be problematic.

    I originally thought it was very suspicious that the neighbour called in this missing person: why would a neighbour be spying on her, to supposedly know that she left on her bike but hadn't come back. I thought possibly the neighbour had offed her.

    I’m positive they know the underlying facts, which is why they never handled this as an abduction.

    No abduction=No bike ride.

    I don’t think Suzanne told her she was going on a bike ride, because I believe she was dead long before that 911 call.

    Maybe she did by default if she told LE that SM left for a bike ride and didn't return. Honestly, I no longer know if the neighbor said that or not. I think others have seen it in MSM though.

    According to CrimeOnline, the answer to that question is a resounding, "NO."

    The neighbor did NOT see Suzanne go for a bike ride.

    In fact, nobody did:

    ‘Nobody actually saw her on her bicycle’: Questions persist amid changing reports on the investigation into Suzanne Morphew’s Mother’s Day disappearance

    According to sources who spoke to the Daily Mail, Morphew’s daughters contacted a neighbor when they were unable to reach her. <snip>

    A woman identified as the stepmother of Morphew’s daughter’s best friend said that the homes in the remote central Colorado town are far apart. It remains unclear how long Morphew had been out of contact before the neighbor alerted Chaffee County authorities on May 10. The sheriff’s department launched an immediate search for Morphew on that day.

    “The neighbors up there are spread pretty far apart but the only reason they found out [she was missing] is because the girls called the neighbors and said, ‘we never heard from Mom – can you go check on her?'” the friend’s stepmother said.

    “Nobody actually saw her on her bicycle, sadly.”
    ____________________________________


    MSM needs to stop reporting it as if SM disappearing during a bike ride is an established fact.

    That bike ride story is a total bunch of hooey.

    The answer is here:

    "Members of the Chaffee County Sheriff’s Office responded to the area and contacted the reporting party. They advised that their neighbor, Suzanne Morphew, age 49, from the Maysville area had reportedly gone for a bike ride in the area and failed to return home."​

    Edited to eliminate my typo.


    I too read that in the first week of the investigation. I will try and find it. I believe it was around the time the helicopter footage of the home was released.


    I did read this, it stated the cameras had been malfunctioning and inop for 4-5 days prior to her disappearance. Sadly, searching for it seems to be like getting info on the bike or SM herself! I must withdraw my comment after an unsuccessful search for the MSM article. Anyone?

    Do we know that the husband didn't check on her? No, we don't know.

    The neighbor told the Sheriff's office that their neighbor had "reportedly" gone cycling and failed to return home. That means she is passing along information.

    The map is a screenshot from the mapping extension of the Chaffee County Property Search site. SM's house is on Puma Path, which is labeled in the lower center because that is what I searched for. As you can see, only the handful of properties in their small subdivision are private property. All of the surrounding area, including most of the searched area, is most likely federal lands. IMO

    The link is provided for verification of the source, but because there are two disclaimer / waivers acting as gateways to the specific map I have posted, it may not work. Go to the Chaffee County Assessor Property Search results page for the surname, and click on the "MAP" button in the header toolbar. The rest of the pathway is self-instructive.

    May be me...but I have no, zero, nada, not a drop of confidence in MSM on this. There hasn't been (I don't feel) any "investigative reporting" to my knowledge. Heck LE is so tight lipped in this case, who has anything?

    Sadly, no. I saw some posts both here and in SM saying something like “I wonder if they had cameras. If they did, were they operational? It would be suspect if they stopped working shortly before she went missing.” Next, comments started popping up stating it as fact that they had cameras, and they stopped working shortly before SM went missing.

    I haven’t been able to locate any MSM confirming that they even have cameras, let alone something stating whether or not they were operational. I have looked long and hard through the media thread, as I would liked to know myself. Unfortunately, I think it came about from rumors or statements on social media, and grew legs. I would love to be proven wrong, though!

    IMO MOO JMO
