    Didn't the same organization help find another missing person recently?

    I suspect we will be hearing about them a lot.

    Colorado mom Suzanne Morphew, who disappeared in May, was "presumed dead" in her father's obituary earlier this month.

    Gene Moorman, 87, died Nov. 11 in French Lick, Indiana, after a nine-month battle with cancer.

    Morphew, 49, was last seen by her husband Barry Morphew, 52, on May 10 after going on a bike ride in the Maysville area. A neighbor dialed 911 to report Suzanne had never returned.

    Her father's family requested that donations on their behalf be made to any "local domestic violence organization."

    Last Tuesday, authorities renewed their appeal for information about the mother of two, and Chaffee County Sheriff John A. Spezze wrote in a statement that "despite “numerous searches, countless investigative interviews and hundreds of tips reported in this case," investigators need more information.

    Spezze said the case remains a priority and that their task force is focused on Morphew's social media presence.
    In a September interview with Fox 31 Denver, Morphew's brother Andrew Moorman said he had learned his sister was “working with domestic abuse meetings.”

    “I’m afraid this is domestic abuse,” he said.

    Appearing in an episode of "Dr. Phil," Moorman said he believes his brother-in-law was responsible for his sister's disappearance. Moorman also criticized Morphew for not participating in a large-scale volunteer search for his wife at the end of September.

    As if he couldn't be more of a monster. I also love how they keep accusing the election of being rigged against Trump, but 99% of the fraud I have heard of was for him. I am convinced that it's a case of them being suspicious because they are afraid that people are doing the crooked things they are actually doing.

    Barry Morphew accused of submitting presidential ballot for missing wife

    Barry Morphew, who is charged with first-degree murder in connection with the death of his wife who remains missing, is now accused of submitting a ballot for her in the November presidential election.

    Suzanne Morphew was last seen in May 2020, and while she has not been found, the Chaffee County Sheriff's Office (CCSO) announced earlier this month the arrest of her husband Barry and said they believe Suzanne is no longer alive.
    Back in October 2020, the Chaffee County Clerk reported to the sheriff's office that she had received a mail-in ballot for Suzanne Morphew, a person she knew was missing since May 2020, an arrest affidavit from CCSO for Barry Morphew's arrest says.

    The ballot was provided to the sheriff's office and seized as evidence.

    It did not have the signature of the voter as required and instead, the affidavit says, the name Barry Lee Morphew was handwritten on the line for the witness's legal name.

    In April, Barry Morphew was interviewed about the ballot and asked why he submitted it.

    He replied, "Just because I wanted Trump to win," the affidavit says. He further stated, according to the affidavit that "I just thought give him [Trump] another vote."

    He went on to say, according to the affidavit, "all these other guys are cheating," and I know she [referring to his wife] was going to vote for Trump anyway."

    When asked if knew submitting the ballot was illegal, he responded, "I didn't know you couldn't do that for your spouse," the affidavit says.

    The venn diagram of evil, stupid, incompetent and Trump voter is pretty much a solid circle.

    More details about the voter fraud part of all of this. Bizarre! More at link.

    The county clerk immediately knew something strange was going on last fall. A mail ballot had arrived from Suzanne Morphew ? a woman missing since May.

    ?There?s posters all over our town,? said Lori Mitchell, the clerk and recorder in Chaffee County, a Colorado community of about 20,000 rocked by Morphew?s disappearance last Mother?s Day. ?Constant things in the news about her. There?s people at the grocery store passing out fliers.?

    The ballot didn?t have Morphew?s signature as required, Mitchell said. But someone had signed on the ?witness? line: The woman?s husband, Barry Morphew.
    ?I was stunned,? Mitchell recalled. ?I couldn?t believe it. I was like, what in the world is going on??

    For a long time, she said, it was just something fishy that her office reported to law enforcement. Then Barry Morphew was charged this month with murdering his wife. This week, things got stranger still: Barry was also accused of casting his wife?s ballot in a fraudulent vote for President Donald Trump.

    Barry echoed Trump?s false claims of election fraud as the motivation for his own alleged wrongdoing, according to an affidavit filed Thursday in court. The 53-year-old told FBI agents last month that he did it because ?all these other guys are cheating? and said his wife would have backed Trump anyway.

    ?I just thought, give him another vote,? Barry allegedly said.

    Colorado Woman Allegedly Killed by Trump-Loving Hubby Had an Affair, Cops Testify


    Suzanne Morphew, a Colorado mother-of-two who vanished without a trace while out on a bike ride on Mother’s Day last year, had a prolonged affair before her disappearance, investigators revealed in court on Monday.

    The shocking revelation came during the start of a two-day preliminary hearing for the trial of her husband, Barry.
    According to Dru Nielsen, Morphew’s defense attorney, Suzanne was “spying” on her husband because she believed he was having an affair. In reality, Chaffee County Sheriff’s Commander Alex Walker said during cross-examination, the mother of two was having a two-year affair with a man named Jeff Libler, whom she had attended high school with in Indiana.

    Walker said that over the two-year affair, Suzanne frequently communicated with Lieber and met up with him at least six times in different cities across the country.

    FBI Special Agent Ken Harris also attested to the affair on the stand on Monday, stating that he heard two recordings that were made on a “spy pen” investigators believed belonged to Suzanne. In one recording, the Morphews are heard arguing about money. In another, which is five hours long, Suzanne is heard speaking with Libler, according to the FBI agent.

    Barry Morphew murder case: Husband made five “trash runs” on day wife went missing, FBI agent says

    On the day Barry Morphew’s wife was reported missing, he spent the morning throwing away items in trash cans and large trash bins at five locations near Broomfield, hours away from his Chaffee County home, a retired FBI agent testified Tuesday.

    On Tuesday, retired FBI agent Jonathan Grusing testified in detail about data collected by Morphew’s truck and cell phone on May 9 and 10, 2020. Barry Morphew left his Chaffee County home early in the morning on May 10 and drove to Broomfield for a landscaping job, Grusing testified. That morning, Morphew appeared to make five “trash runs” at various spots in the Broomfield area, he said.

    In the first run, Morphew stopped next to a trash can at an RTD bus station for about 90 seconds, and the passenger and driver’s doors on his truck opened, Grusing testified. He then went to a hotel, and before checking in, parked along the back next to a trash can, where the truck doors again opened and closed. He then left the hotel and threw items away at a McDonald’s restaurant, Grusing testified.

    When confronted with a video showing that so-called “trash run,” at McDonald’s, Morphew at one point told investigators he was probably throwing away wrappers, and later said he couldn’t remember what he was throwing away, Grusing testified. After stopping at the restaurant, Morphew went to a trash bin near a Men’s Warehouse store, and spent 40 minutes in that parking lot, Grusing testified. Later that afternoon, Morphew placed a full trash bag, tree planter and a camouflage jacket in a trash bin near the hotel, Grusing said.

    Grusing also testified that someone used Barry Morphew’s truck at 3:25 a.m. on the day his wife went missing. The truck’s driver and passenger doors opened around that time, he said. And about 3:51 a.m., Morphew’s cell phone appeared to move to the area where his wife’s abandoned bicycle was found, although Grusing testified that the data was inconclusive because of the poor cell coverage in the region. The last ping on Suzanne Morphew’s cell phone was at 4:23 a.m., Grusing testified. Her phone has not been found.

    Morphew previously told investigators his wife was sleeping and he did not wake her around 5 a.m. when he left to go to Broomfield for the landscaping job. He also said he was at the job site when his neighbor called him at 5:15 p.m. that day to tell him Suzanne was missing, but surveillance video shows he was actually in his hotel room at that time, and spent very little time at the job site that day, Grusing testified.

    Colorado murder suspect Barry Morphew's deleted search history has been laid bare during the second day of his preliminary hearing, revealing visits to a notorious dating website favored by unfaithful spouses and a celebrity pornography site.

    Testimony from federal agents also indicated that Barry's missing wife, Suzanne Morphew, had been texting her longtime lover and sent him a bikini selfie on the afternoon of her disappearance last spring.

    Barry, 53, stands accused of first-degree murder, evidence tampering and other charges in connection with the disappearance of his 49-year-old wife, who had been romantically involved with her former high school friend Jeff Libler for two years and talked about moving with him to Ecuador.

    Suzanne was reported missing on Mother's Day 2020 after going out for a bike ride. Her body has never been found.

    Adding to Tuesday's bombshell developments was DailyMail.com's exclusive revelation that Suzanne, Barry and Libler appeared in the local paper together in 1985.

    Both men attended the same high school as Suzanne, with Barry two grades ahead of his wife and Libler at the Alexandria-Monroe High School in Alexandria, Indiana.

    A newspaper report unearthed by DailyMail.com shows both men won plaudits for their sporting prowess - Morphew in baseball and Libler in golf. Both Suzanne and Libler appear in the 1987 edition of the school's yearbook, with Suzanne appearing in the school's German club, while Libler took Spanish.

    During Tuesday's preliminary hearing, law enforcement officials presented to the court Suzanne's text message exchanges with her lover, in which she told him she had a fine night and was looking at houses for sale.

    When her husband came home from work that day, he found Suzanne sunbathing in the yard. She was sending pictures of herself to Libler via LinkedIn, which the couple had been using to communicate behind her husband's back, reported Fox 21.

    The court was then shown a photo of Suzanne that she had sent to Libler that day, which depicted her laying on her front in a bikini and smiling. Suzanne and Barry's daughters were said to have broken down in tears as the photo was shown.

    Barry would later tell investigators his wife looked 'drunk' in that photo, which officials said was Suzanne's last proof of life.

    The following day, Libler wished Suzanne Happy Mother's Day and said he knew it would be a hard day for her because she missed her mother. Suzanne never replied.

    His last known text to Suzanne was sent on May 11, in which he offered her well wishes for her cancer treatment. That message also went unanswered.

    Suzanne had survived two battles with non-Hodgkins' lymphoma decades apart.

    The hearing also revealed that just days prior, Suzanne texted her husband and apparently signaled to him her intention to end their rocky marriage, which was marked by accusations of infidelity and abuse.

    'I'm done,' Suzanne wrote to Barry on May 6. 'I could care less what you're up to and have been for years. We just need to figure this out civilly.'

    It has been revealed that Suzanne suspected her husband of being unfaithful to her and even purchased a spy pen to snoop on him.

    Barry insisted to his wife that he was not cheating on her, writing in one text: 'I promise you, you are wrong about all the crazy thoughts about me. Why would I want another, only a fool would stray from an angel like you.'

    As two days of testimony have shown, both Suzanne and Barry kept secrets.

    Deleted search history on Barry's phone included visits to the cheaters' dating site Ashley Maddison and Celeb Jihad, which features nude photos and videos of celebrities posted by purported Islamic extremists.

    FBI Agent Kenneth Harris noted that the iCloud was shared by the Morphew family, so it's unclear whose searchers those were.

    The court also heard from FBI Agent John Grusing, who detailed Barry's movements around the time of Suzanne's disappearance.

    Grusing said Barry told him he was shooting chipmunks in his backyard, killing some 85 animals, on May 9. The agent also mentioned that a tranquilizer dart cap was found in Morphew's dryer.

    Early the next morning, Barry headed to Broomfield, making multiple trash runs in various locations and changing shirts over the next several hours. During one of his trips to a garbage receptacle, Barry said he disposed of tranquilizer material.

    As Tuesday's hearing continued into the evening, the court was also told how:

    Morphew's defense said he wouldn't have had enough time to hide a body.
    During his first interview with Com. Walker, Morphew claimed that on Sunday morning he set his alarm for 4:30am. He claimed he had loaded the truck the night before and left the driveway around 5am.
    It reportedly takes about 32 minutes to drive to Johnson Village from his home, according to Google directions.
    Based on provided cell phone data, Morphew arrived in Johnson Village at 5:37am.
    'Do you think there is time to dispose of a human body in that time?' Neilsen asked. 'No there is not,' Agent Grusing replied.
    At 6:56 a.m. Morphew sent two text messages to Suzanne. They read: 'You up?' and 'Happy Mother's Day, I love you.'
    Those were his final texts to his wife.
    Neilsen also poked holes into Grusings' evidence that claims Morphew put his cell phone on airplane mode on and off, which is mentioned in the sealed arrest affidavit.
    Verizon records show Morphew's cell phone was on at 7:19am. on May 9 receiving a signal.
    Neilsen asked, 'Can a phone receive a signal in airplane mode?' Grusing said, 'I don't know.'

    The first half of the preliminary hearing has wrapped up.

    The prosecution said they still have witnesses to call, noting that only three have been called thus far. He believes those three are the “meat and potatoes” for this hearing, but would still like to call other witnesses. However, he says the defense is taking too long and isn't sure if it’ll be done in four days.

    The preliminary hearing is supposed to continue on August 23 and 24.

    The first day of the preliminary hearing revealed that Morphew had researched language schools in Ecuador after her lover, a married father-of-six from Michigan who she went to school with in Indiana, suggested that the Latin American nation had cheap living costs and good healthcare.

    'I'd live in a shack right now,' Suzanne texted her friend, Sheila Oliver, who she had known for 30 years.

    'I'm sure he won't make it easy. He has always wanted control.' She was referring to her husband Barry, currently on trial for Suzanne's murder.

    Suzanne was last seen heading out for a bike ride near their home last May. Her body has never been found.

    On Monday the court heard that her marriage to Barry, 53, was full of arguments, domestic violence, distrust and religious guilt-tripping.

    In June Barry Morphew was suddenly arrested for the killing. Prosecutors haven't revealed any of the evidence they used to charge him nor have they laid out a motive.

    Monday's hearing was the first time any of the details that went into their case emerged. They include:

    Suzanne was having an affair with Jeff Libler, a married Michigan father of six who she'd gone to high school with in Indiana
    They met up seven times in several states and exchanged messages on LinkedIn to try to hide their romance from Barry, who became suspicious after reading some of their texts
    In December 2019 Libler told Suzanne that Ecuador was a cheap place to live with good healthcare, and her internet records show searches for language schools in Ecuador
    Suzanne had been taking antidepressants and told friends she was begging Barry for a divorce but he refused to give her one
    Suzanne had a spy pen that she was going to use to snoop on Barry because she was convinced he was also having an affair
    She told friends in text messages that Barry turned their daughters against her whenever they argued
    The defense pointed to unidentified male DNA that was found in Suzanne's Range Rover on the steering wheel - it is not Barry's and it matches three profiles in the criminal database
    Barry was awake on the morning of her disappearance and was 'disposing of evidence' between 2am and 5am

    Chaffee County Sheriff's Commander Alex Walker testified that Suzanne suspected her husband of having an affair so bought a spy pen to put in his car.

    Instead, it was she who was having the affair.

    She and Libler - a married father of six who lives in Michigan - met up seven times in multiple states, sending each other nude photos and saying they were each other's 'soulmate'.

    They communicated over LinkedIn to avoid detection and one of their last conversations involved Suzanne telling him she was in love with him.

    Suzanne wanted to marry Jeff but told him she couldn't because of her religion.

    Sheriffs found out about the affair when they were looking into Suzanne's disappearance in November last year, but it's unclear how.

    They then went to Libler and asked him about the affair and he asked if he was a target in the investigation.

    The affair began in 2018 when Suzanne, seemingly out of the blue, contacted Jeff saying: 'Howdy stranger.'

    The first time they met up was in New Orleans, where investigators said they 'fooled around' but did not have sex.

    The relationship turned physical in 2019. As the pair communicated more over text, Barry became suspicious so they started speaking through LinkedIn messages.

    In December 2019, Libler told her that Ecuador was a cheap place to live, and had good healthcare.

    Her internet search records show her looking for language schools in the Latin American country.

    In recent messages, they had discussed going biking together and Suzanne told Libler she was in love with him.

    She also said that she wanted to marry him but couldn't because of religious reasons.

    On May 8 he texted her: 'You look good in biking gear babe. You need to be my wife.'

    On the morning of May 9 she texted him: 'We need to be husband & wife.'

    Later that day, he texted her that 'my gang is my home'. There were no texts after that.

    Friends of the missing mother-of-two testified that she'd confided in them about how strained her marriage to Barry was.

    Sheila Oliver said Suzanne wanted to leave him.

    Suzanne would tell Barry that she was having a 'girls' weekend' with Oliver, but then go and meet Libler.

    The court was shown text messages between Oliver and Suzanne, which included Suzanne referring to Barry as 'Jekyll and Hyde'.

    'It's Jekyll and Hyde again. He and Mal were together last night. Prob switching it on when he talks with her. Ugh. I feel like I'm crazy. I just had a conversation with him. Pretty much told him I can't be healthy and stay in this,' she said.

    When they argued, she complained Barry would use Biblical scriptures whenever it suited him to guilt-trip her into forgiving him.

    Sheila also described incidents of domestic violence that included Barry smacking Suzanne into a wall and holding a gun to her head.

    Another report described how he'd once held a gun to his own head in an apparent suicide threat.

    One piece of evidence that was mentioned was a spy pen which had previously been vaguely referred to in documents.

    The spy pen belonged to Suzanne and Walker said she had it because she suspected Barry of having an affair.

    'Barry wasn't having an affair. Suzanne was having an affair for two years,' Walker told the court.

    The court was shown screenshots of their text messages where Suzanne called Barry 'unstable'.

    Suzanne told Sheila that Barry would turn their daughters against her, or try to, when they were arguing.

    The court was also shown bodycam footage of people police spoke to in the early stages of their investigations last May, after Suzanne went missing.

    A neighbor called 911 after Mallory, one of the couple's daughters, tried texting her to wish her a Happy Mothers' Day but became alarmed when the texts didn't go through.

    Barry never called 911.

    Shortly afterwards she was reported missing, police interviewed the other daughter Macy's boyfriend, Miles, who told them that Barry and Suzanne had 'problems' and had discussed separating.

    'They've had some problems in the past. They have talked about separating. I've known this through Macy,' he said.

    In another conversation, Suzanne told Sheila how Barry would use Bible scriptures about forgiveness against her.

    She also told her that she and Barry argued when she was undergoing chemotherapy treatment while battling Hodgkin's Lymphoma.

    Sheila testified on Monday that Macy, the Morphews' youngest daughter, encouraged her mother to get a divorce and file a restraining order against her father.

    The court also heard that Suzanne had been taking antidepressants before she vanished, and that the pair had argued about money.

    She had inherited the money and the couple used it on a house, according to reporters who were in the court.

    Unlike at past hearings, there were no cameras inside the court for Monday's hearing and the judge is not allowing it to be live streamed.

    Fox 21 reporter Lauren Scharf tweeted on Monday that Barry's sister approached her in court and told her she was 'ruining' their lives.

    The girls Macy and Mallory cried during some of the testimony.

    At one point Barry turned to his daughters and mouthed: 'I miss you guys,' and then teared up.

    The hearing will take several days, after which the judge is expected to rule on whether or not to set bail.


    EXCLUSIVE: Suzanne Morphew's married lover went to same high school with both her AND her husband Barry - and was featured alongside the accused murderer in the local paper in 1985

    The married lover of missing mom Suzanne Morphew appeared in the local paper alongside husband Barry in 1985, DailyMail.com can reveal.

    Married dad Jeffrey Libler, 51, was named in court on Monday as the man Suzanne, 49, had a two-year affair with before she vanished on Mother's Day 2020.

    Her husband Barry Morphew, 53, has been charged with her murder - with police investigators citing the affair and her wish to leave him as a possible motive during the preliminary hearing in Salida, Colorado.

    Both men attended the same high school as Suzanne, with Morphew two grades ahead of his wife and Libler at the Alexandria-Monroe High School in Alexandria, Indiana.

    Now a newspaper report unearthed by DailyMail.com shows both men won plaudits for their sporting prowess - Morphew in baseball and Libler in golf.

    Both Suzanne and Libler appear in the 1987 edition of the school's yearbook, with Suzanne appearing in the school's German club, while Libler took Spanish.

    Suzanne and Libler also appear just a few pages apart in the portrait photo section.

    The June 12, 1985 news report lists the high school's sporting big-hitters with Morphew taking fifth place in the baseball team's list of most valuable players.

    A photo that appears above the report in the Alexandria Times Tribune shows a young Morphew sporting a blond bowl cut and sitting among fellow players.

    Libler appears further down the same page under the golf listing and was one of two freshmen assigned to the First Varsity A.

    Live round found next to bed of Colorado woman presumed dead

    https://abcnews.go.com/US/wireStory/...-dead-79608819

    An unused .22-caliber round was found next to the bed of a Colorado woman who disappeared last year and whose husband is charged with killing her, and a tranquilizer gun and accessories were also found in the couple's home, investigators testified Monday.

    Prosecutors also showed body camera footage of Barry Morphew with deputies at the couple's home on May 10, 2020, the day his wife Suzanne Morphew was reported missing by a neighbor, during the third day of a court hearing to determine if he will stand trial, The Denver Post reported.

    The deputies were looking for an item of Suzanne Morphew's clothing to help tracking dogs find her. It was the first time Barry Morphew had been in the house in the mountains of southern Colorado since his wife was reported missing and he acted oddly and did not try to look around for her, Chaffee County Undersheriff Andy Rohrich testified.

    “He’s not even trying to call her phone,” he said. “This is the last place, according to his testimony, that he’s seen his wife alive and he’s not asking any questions.”
    Investigators found a dart gun, empty tranquilizer darts and a needle used to inject tranquilizer chemical into darts in the house and Barry Morphew's gun safe, retired FBI agent Jonathan Grusing testified. A cap used to cover the injecting needle was also found in the dryer along with clothes and bedsheets from one of the couple's daughters, he said. However, no tranquilizer chemical was found and there is no way to know how long the needle cap had been in the dryer, Grusing said during cross-examination by another of Barry Morphew's attorneys, Dru Nielsen.

    Rohrich did not testify about how the live round may have factored into Suzanne Morphew's death.

    I missed a lot. I had no idea that she was having an affair. I wonder what happened to her sneaky link's marriage?

    Colorado man 'hunted' down wife in murder plot, authorities allege

    Law enforcement documents released Monday in the disappearance of Suzanne Morphew allege that her husband “hunted” her down and staged a crime scene after she revealed she was going to leave him.

    Barry Morphew, 53, who was charged with first-degree murder and other crimes in his wife’s presumed death, was released from a Colorado jail Monday after he posted $500,000 cash bail.

    He has pleaded not guilty.
    In the 129-page document, the chief investigator with Colorado’s 11th Judicial District cited a relative, a friend and secretly recorded notes made by Suzanne Morphew that portray her husband as abusive and controlling.

    She had long suspected her husband of having affairs, and she began having one in 2019 with a man she had gone to high school with, the affidavit says.

    In an interview with law enforcement agents, Barry Morphew denied that he had had any affairs and said he had never been abusive to his wife. He also denied knowledge of his wife’s affair.

    Four days before Suzanne Morphew vanished, she sent a text message telling him that the relationship was “done.”

    “Let’s handle this civilly,” she said, according to the affidavit.

    The affidavit accuses Barry Morphew of taking “steps to control her, incapacitate her, stage a crime scene and create his alibi for her disappearance.”

    By May 9, the document continues, “it had become clear that Barry could not control Suzanne’s insistence on leaving him, and he resorted to something he has done his entire life — hunt and control Suzanne like he had hunted and controlled animals.”

    In interviews with authorities, Barry Morphew denied being involved in his wife’s death and suggested others who he said he believed may have been responsible, including Suzanne Morphew’s relatives or a drug dealer.
