Barry Morphew has murder charges dropped despite cops saying they think they know where body of wife Suzanne is buried

BRIAN MORPHEW has all murder charges dropped despite investigators claiming they think they know where the body of his wife, Suzanne, is buried.

The move came less than 10 days before the murder case was set to go to trial on April 28.

District Attorney Linda Stanley filed the motion on Tuesday that asked Judge Ramsey Lama to dismiss the case without prejudice, meaning charges could be filed again at a later date.

According to the motion, Suzanne's family supported the dismissal of charges at this time.

Morphew’s defense attorney argued in court that the case should be dismissed with prejudice so that it could not be refiled.

Morphew’s daughters, who have supported him, addressed the court Tuesday.

“We fully support this dismissal. We know our dad didn’t have anything to do with it,” Mallory said.

Macy said she was looking forward to taking time to heal and “hopefully finding out what really happened to our mom.”

Suzanne is presumed dead by police, and her body has never been found.

In the motion, investigators believe they're close to locating the mother's body.

Police believe that Suzanne's body is in a remote and mountainous region near the Morphew residence.

However, the weather has complicated recovery efforts, according to court documents.

The area in question was coated with a significant amount of snow before the search could be completed.

“To date, the area has 5 feet of snow concealing the location where the People believe Ms. Morphew is located.

As a result, the People cannot safely excavate this area and resolve this unanswered question,” court documents showed.


Morphew was initially charged with first-degree murder in connection with the May 2020 disappearance and presumed death of his wife, Suzanne.

Suzanne was last heard from on May 9, 2020, the day before Mother's Day.

She had allegedly gone for a bike ride and never returned.

A neighbor raised the alarm after Mallory and Macy were unable to contact their mother.

Morphew had allegedly been staying in a Denver hotel 140 miles away the night before Suzanne vanished as he prepared for a landscaping job.


Both Suzanne and her husband had unusual activity detected on their cell phones on May 9, 2020.

Suzanne had texted with her alleged lover, Jeff Libler, 59 times the day of her disappearance, phone records revealed. This was more than the norm for the two.

Suzanne also sent Liebler a selfie during that text conversation – her last known photo.

Morphew also had unusual activity detected on his phone, which he attributed to chipmunk hunting around his property.

Multiple pings of his cell phone were detected on the perimeter of the $1.7million mansion he shared with Suzanne and their two adult daughters.

But authorities believe Morphew may have been chasing his wife instead.

Morphew claims he went to bed at 8pm the night Suzanne went missing, but his car data tells a different story, according to investigators.

Data pulled from his truck's computer appears to reveal movement of his car on his property at 9:30pm, which contradicts what he told officials.

Car data from the following day shows that Morphew drove past the location where Suzanne's bike helmet was later found on his way to a work location.

On the way to the worksite, Morphew pulled over at a bus stop, a hotel, a McDonalds, and a dumpster, disposing of trash at all locations, prosecutors have said, citing security footage and vehicle data.

Investigators have alleged that he could have been disposing of evidence within the area but in different places.

However, Morphew claims he was working and that the trash disposal was just part of his job.


In a recent interview with CBS' 48 Hours, Suzanne's sister, Melinda Moorman, detailed texts that the mother-of-two sent to her just days before her disappearance.

Moorman told 48 Hours that her sister informed her in text messages that she was being abused by her husband and wanted to leave him just days before she vanished.

"It was very lengthy. It was very powerful. It was very revealing," she said.

"Barry was very dominant in the relationship, and my sister was a very passive, gentle soul … he had … a great tendency to overpower, intimidate people to get what he wanted."

The text from Suzanne read in part: "He's also been abusive emotionally and physically… I feel more angry now. Anger at what I've allowed."

Moorman said she often thinks about Barry and urged him to share what he knows about her sister's disappearance.

"Please do the right thing, Barry," she pleaded in the 48 Hours episode.

"Please do the right thing."

Moorman also had a message for her sister's daughters, Mallory and Marcy.
