Suzanne Morphew, 49, has been missing since May 10, 2020, from the Maysville area in Chaffee County after going out for a bike ride and never returning. It sparked several searches in the following months, including more than 135 search warrants executed by investigators.

On May 17, a week after her disappearance, Barry Morphew posted a videoon a Facebook page set up to share updates on the search for Suzanne, pleading for her safe return.

Almost a year to the day following her disappearance, Barry Morphew was arrested and charged with first-degree murder after deliberation, tampering with physical evidence and an attempt to influence a public servant, according to court documents.

He’s since been charged with forgery after he allegedly submitted a mail ballot in his wife's name in last year's election.
