Law enforcement officials have found the remains of Suzanne Morphew, the 49-year-old Chaffee County woman missing since 2020 whose disappearance embroiled her husband Barry Morphew in an ongoing legal battle.
Colorado Bureau of Investigation agents located human remains in the area of Moffat in Saguache County on Friday during an unrelated investigation, according to an announcement from the agency.
The remains were identified as Suzanne Morphew by the El Paso County Coroner’s Office on Wednesday.
The Colorado Bureau of Investigation declined to release specific information about the location or state of the remains and stated that no arrests have been made since the remains were located. Twelfth Judicial District Attorney Anne Kelly was notified that the remains were found, according to the agency.
“While this case has garnered attention from around the world, it has touched our community and the sheriff’s office deeply,” Chaffee County Sheriff John Spezze said in a statement. “We have never stopped our investigation and will continue to follow all leads in pursuit of justice for Suzanne.”
Barry Morphew’s attorney, Iris Eytan, did not immediately comment on the discovery.
