    All I can say is if my husband were missing, I would do everything possible to keep his face in the news. I would want people to keep a look out for him. I would be down at the police station and constantly checking with them to see what if anything that they were doing.

    I would cooperate in any way that I could to clear my name and to get them seriously looking for him. If I felt that they were not doing enough, I would organize my own search party.

    I can't understand why the family isn't doing this, especially, the husband. Why are the daughters speaking out?

    The squeaky wheel gets the oil. So, to me, the more media attention, the more pressure for the police to solve this disappearance, one way or the other.

    I'm not sure if this has been mentioned, as it sometimes hard to keep up, even though I'm sitting right here, lol.

    In any case, it's really not such a great idea to take as gospel, as it were, the items mentioned in/on/around the house listing from 2 years ago.
    At the time it was listed, it had this, that and the other.
    Once new owners take possession, in this case the Morphew family, there is no reason to automatically assume they left everything exactly how it was, when it was for sale.

    When we bought our house a few years back, we changed a LOT of things that were key selling points, and mentioned in the listing.
    For us, they were there then, but they're not here now.
    It's entirely possible the same holds true for the Morphew family home.

    Just something to consider.

    I have the feeling that those two pieces of equipment and his big pick-up to pull that trailer, just might be BM's whole business operation .......Does he have a town business office location ? Did Suzanne work there with him ?.....moo

    Good question.
    We don't even know the name of his landscaping company in Colorado, so good luck finding out the answers to those questions.

    100% selfishness, fueled by 100% evil.
    No matter how charming the outer package may appear, a person who can murder their loving, devoted spouse, is just selfish and evil.

    I feel TN got dragged into a family situation and offered his professional services with the best intentions. I think he thought his expertise with media and advertising and video could provide a relative with much needed help and get the word out. Then things got weird. So what is he supposed to do-go public against his relative or just quietly stop helping and let LE do their job? I feel bad for him.

    I'm inclined to agree with this.
    I feel sorry for him, as I do think he was just trying to help, then became the butt of jokes and getting the stink-eye by a few, wondering what his alibi was, or if there is some hinky stuff going on.
    Ugh, welcome to social media where kindness and courtesy is in dreadfully short supply.

    In a couple of words, people lose it. They lose their dam' minds.

    We're not supposed to derail threads with personal anecdotes, so I'll just say I have both personal and professional experience to support that. There's also a small literature of interviews with domestic violence perps and murderers. A good place to start is the classic book Murder and Madness by Donald Lunde. Every one of the perps he interviewed (murderers) were friends with someone, although you'll see right away that one of his categories of murderer is the one who exhibits increasingly odd behavior, but seems harmless enough.

    "He was a nice, quiet man" is often said by friends and neighbors in cases where there's been a murder within the family.

    Also, "They kept to themselves, we waved hello," comes up a lot. And even "We just saw them at church. They both seemed fine." (That was said by fellow congregants of a 50-something neighbor of mine, who murdered his brother and then killed himself, possibly during a sudden argument).

    But in DV murders, when a woman is pregnant, she's more at risk. When she's making moves to leave, she's more at risk. And of course, if either partner is having an affair, she's more at risk. Men are more likely to be killed by non-spouses, and when women kill inside the family, it's more likely to be a child.

    However, women do kill their husbands and if the sexes were reversed in this case and the circumstances similar, we would be discussing the wife (and so would LE). The woman in my county who considered killing her husband (to punish him for an affair) ended up killing their two small sons. They were very well-off, he was a doctor, she was a former teacher. After she learned about the affair, she became very paranoid and controlling, and demanded he come home precisely at certain times. When he failed to do so and was overdue by many hours, that's what she figured she should do and what she did. Paranoia and a controlling nature are real and they are a b***h.

    This is different from the man in New York who (a chef and a wine snob) beat his wife to death with an unopened bottle of wine, because she didn't like the first bottle of wine he opened (his account of events, obviously). He says he just "lost it." I figure he'd had some pretty negative thoughts about a wife he considered too picky or too ignorant about wine before.

    Re charming. Even the most educated and intelligent can be fooled by a smart sociopath. If a person doesn't have experience with one of that ilk they can be manipulated, even if they don't realize or acknowledge it.

    The one in my life has absolutely everyone fooled, except his six children and ex wives who saw the real personality behind the public facade. The sociopath boasted how easy it was to charm (ie: control) a newly qualified doctor friend of ours. He chuckled as he told me "All I have to do is call him "Doc" and he puffs up". Putty in his hands, but may have considered himself too intelligent to be so easily manipulated.

    Yes evil, but with a charming mask. A wolf in sheep's clothing.

    Not saying this is the case with BM. Don't know the man.

    MOO. JMO.

    I agree... I was just speculating that there might be more to the “fear” that caused the urgency. Had it been days since they spoke vs hours ... were they aware of some family problem or issue going on?
    We were that way with my older mother who was in bad health, but my kids are not that way with me, I spent a lot of time reading and writing ... and obviously on Websleuths :rolleyes:- sleuthing at times when I’m not outdoors - kayaking on my pond, walking, mowing, or on a tractor. My kids got me an Apple Watch because I don’t answer my phone ... but they don’t call 911. I’m several years older than SM, so I just think there’s more to the fear and urgency. Maybe not, people have their own way of doing things.

    Yup. Ted Bundy fooled Ann Rule, who was in LE before she became a crime writer.

    Upthread they were listed as being part of the home when put up for sale 2 years ago. Plus, it makes sense for a $1.3 million home in rural location.
