In an appearance on the Dr. Phil show, the brother of a missing Colorado woman said he is convinced Suzanne Morphew was murdered, and offered new information about the timeline the Mother’s Day weekend she was reported missing.
Andy Moorman organized a volunteer search last week in Chaffee County, Colorado, where Suzanne and her husband Barry Morphew have been living since 2018. Moorman has said that trained cadaver dogs appear to have hit on multiple areas during the five-day search, but authorities in Colorado examined the areas and said in a statement earlier this week that nothing of evidentiary value was found.
But in a clip of a scheduled appearance on “Dr. Phil,” Moorman tells the talk show host that he is confident investigators are building a case against Barry Morphew — though authorities have not named a person of interest or suspect in the disappearance.
In the interview, Moorman revealed for the first time that he believes Suzanne was killed sometime on the Saturday night before she was reported missing.
“She was seen in town with Barry getting a sandwich at 4 p.m.,” Moorman said. “At midnight, somebody friended all of the guys my age on her Facebook at midnight.”
Moorman told Dr. Phil that he believes Suzanne was killed sometime after 4 p.m. and then someone involved manipulated her Facebook account — but it’s not clear who or why.
Moorman also said that the data on Barry Morphew’s vehicle does not correspond with the timeline he gave police about his activity on Sunday morning, but did not go into specifics in the episode clip about what type of data, and how it conflicts with what Morphew told investigators.
As previously reported, authorities in Colorado have released very few details about the investigation and have not revealed what evidence they have against any possible suspects. Police have never publicly commented on Barry Morphew’s alibi that weekend – Morphew has claimed that he went to Broomfield, Colorado, to work a landscaping job the day Suzanne was reported missing, but it remains unclear when he is said to have left his home in Maysville for the three-hour drive.
The episode originally scheduled to air on October 2 appears to have been pre-empted by breaking national news.
Anyone who has any information on the whereabouts of Suzanne Morphew is asked to call the dedicated tip line: 719-312-7530.
