Colorado Bureau of Investigation declares Suzanne Morphew’s death a homicide after completing autopsy report

Salida, Colorado – The Colorado Bureau of Investigation has recently released the autopsy report for Suzanne Morphew, revealing that her death has been classified as a homicide. The report indicates that her death was caused by a combination of butorphanol, azaperone, and medetomidine intoxication.

CBI Director Chris Schaefer emphasized the importance of following the evidence in seeking justice for Suzanne’s death. Morphew’s remains were discovered in September 2023 in the Moffat area of Saguache County, more than three years after she was reported missing. Suzanne Morphew went missing on Mother’s Day in 2020, sparking a nationwide search and capturing headlines across the country.

Barry Morphew, Suzanne’s husband and the prime suspect in her disappearance, was also charged with her murder. However, the case against him was dismissed in April 2022. Despite the ongoing investigation, no arrests have been made in connection with Suzanne’s death.

In a statement released through his attorneys, Barry Morphew expressed the family’s frustration over the lack of closure and justice in Suzanne’s case. The family continues to seek answers and urges authorities to conduct thorough forensic testing to solve the mystery surrounding her death.

The investigation into Suzanne Morphew’s disappearance and subsequent death remains ongoing, with authorities urging the public to come forward with any information that may help bring the perpetrator to justice. The Morphew family continues to hold out hope for closure and resolution in this tragic case.
