BARRY Morphew’s name will now be cleared after police found his missing wife’s body three years after she disappeared, a source close to him insists.
Murder charges were filed against Barry, 55, and later dropped after Suzanne Morphew, 49, disappeared while on a bike ride just before Mother’s Day in 2020.
The husband was arrested and later released. He is now suing the authorities for $15 million.
“It’s a relief but also a great sadness,” a source close to Barry told The US Sun after Morphew’s remains were recovered in Moffat, about 45 minutes south of Maysville.
“We now know that she is not alive (anymore), which we had desperately hoped for,” they said.
“But we hope that Barry’s name can be cleared because of where she was found and the time it all took place.”
“We are all so shocked. Hopefully there will be answers.”
The source said they have not spoken to Barry since the body was found.
At the time of Suzanne’s disappearance, Barry was working in Broomfield, a Denver suburb about a three-hour drive from the family home.
The couple’s two adult daughters, Mallory and Macy, supported Barry at the trial, but friends of Suzanne also expressed doubts about his innocence.
Suzanne’s remains were identified Wednesday by the El Paso County coroner.
Since the announcement, no arrests have been made and no details about the condition of her body have been released.
The remains were discovered while authorities were investigating a separate case.
The mother celebrated her 49th birthday a few days before her disappearance on May 10, 2020.
