Missing Colorado Woman’s Husband Calls Her Disappearance “Devastating”
The husband of a missing Colorado woman has broken his silence about her disappearance in a new interview with FOX21.
This is the first time Barry Morphew has publicly spoken about Suzanne Morphew, who went missing from Chaffee County on May 10, since May 17, when he posted a video pleading for her safe return.
In the interview, Barry speculated to the station about the cause of Suzanne's disappearance, and suggested that an animal attack, a road accident, or someone who knows her could be responsible.
He defended himself against the accusations that he is involved, stating that he loves his wife and is cooperating with the investigation.
"This is the most devastating thing that has ever happened to me," he told FOX21. "But I have got to keep my faith and trust in God. And Suzanne trusted the Lord and if one person got saved from this, she would think it was worth it. And we are just a Godly, loving, caring family and this thing is just a tragedy."
Despite speaking about Suzanne in the past tense here, he promised that he would continue to search for her everyday until she is found.
He also blamed the Chaffee County Sheriff's Office (CCSO) for its handling of the investigation, hinting that the agency destroyed evidence the day they found Suzanne's bike.
CCSO provided its last update about Suzanne on August 11. But aside from a mention about distributing flyers, the department revealed little about the investigation's current status.
Barry and a family friend are offering up a $200,000 reward for any information that results in Suzanne's safe return.
