Suzanne Morphew

There was no indication of trauma to her body at the time of her death, according to the report.

Barry Morphew, Suzanne's husband, was charged with her murder in 2021, but those charged were dropped in April 2022 just before a trial was supposed to begin. No one has been arrested in the case since.

"The Colorado Bureau of Investigation and our law enforcement partners understand and appreciate the public interest surrounding this case," CBI Director Chris Schaefer said in a statement Monday. "The investigative team assembled to work this case continues to follow the evidence and only the evidence as we seek justice for Suzanne's death."

Her body was found in September 2023 while investigators were searching in an unrelated case. Her remains were found in Moffat, Colorado, in Saguache County, 90 minutes south of where she lived in Chaffee County.

"For the past four years the Morphews have agonized over Suzanne’s disappearance," the Morphew family said in a statement from their lawyer. "This included not only the pain of the loss of their wife and mother but also the false accusations and prosecution of Barry Morphew. The Morphews have prayed the authorities would remove their blinders and not only find Suzanne, but find the suspect responsible for her disappearance and murder. However, the Morphews are left with more questions than answers and a lack of justice for Suzanne, the family and the community."

In addition to her clothes, the autopsy notes a "weathered bullet" was found with her remains.

"They've got tunnel vision and they looked at one person and they've got too much pride to say they're wrong and look somewhere else," Morphew said at the time. "I don't have anything to worry . I've done nothing wrong."
