Suzanne just celebrated Her 49th birthday before she went missing on May 10, 2020, from the $1.7 million mansion she shared with her husband and their two eldest daughters Mallory and Macy Morphew.

Her body has yet to be found and she is presumed dead. The cause of death has not yet been revealed.

She is said to have gone on a bike ride and never returned. A neighbor raised the alarm after Mallory and Macy were unable to contact her upon returning from a camping trip in Idaho.

Barry’s husband was accused was in Denver, 140 miles away, and stayed in a hotel there the night before she disappeared as he was getting ready for a landscaping job.

Chaffee County officials received reports of a missing woman, sparking a search as drones and scent-tracking dogs were used to try to track down the former teacher.

Law enforcement teams conducted multiple searches near her home in Salida and received more than 1,000 tips.

Authorities used diving teams as they searched for Suzanne but she remains missing and where her body is is unknown.

Barry initially suggested that Suzanne might have been the victim of an animal attack even though the dogs couldn’t find the scent.

He also pushed the possibility of Suzanne missing due to an accident with someone on the road, or from a collision with someone else.

Suzanne’s bike was found at the end of a nearby hill with little damage.

A few days after the mother went missing, it was reported that Barry knocked on the window of the Poncha Marker store and gave manage a note.


In it was what he said was a description of Suzanne and asked the manager to keep an eye on her.

The scribbles read: “Children’s blue cyclist helmet. Cycling clothing.”

In a Facebook video, he said: “Oh Suzanne, if anyone is out there and can hear this, it’s you, please, we’ll do whatever it takes to get you back. .

“We love you, we miss you, your girls need you. No questions asked, no matter how much they want – I will do whatever it takes to get you back. Baby, I love you, I want you back so badly.”

The court heard it Suzanne is said to have planned to flee to Equiador with married father of six Jeff Libler – days before she disappeared.

She texted him: “We need to be husband and wife”.

It is alleged that Suzanne said she wanted to marry Libler but could not for “religious reasons”.

Libler and Suzanne – both former classmates at an Indiana high school – had an affair for two years, the testimony alleged.

Speaking at the hearing, Chaffee County Sheriff’s Office Commander Alex Walker said law enforcement discovered the incident last year and learned that Libler had met with Suzanne six times.

Libler spoke to special investigators and told them that Barry was aware of some text messages sent between him and Suzanne, according to Fox21.

In court, Libler suggested in December 2019 that Equifax had a low cost of living and good health care.

Suzanne searched for language schools in the South American country after Libler suggested the idea, reported.

There is also information that Suzanne used a pen to sign due to suspicion of her husband’s adultery.


A spy pen is a device that looks like a writing pen but can automatically record conversations when it detects a sound.

Friends of the missing mother testified that Suzanne once told Libler about how “stressful” her marriage to Barry was.

The court saw text messages between Suzanne and friend Sheila Oliver.

A statement issued to the court said: “It’s Jekyll and Hyde again. He and Mal were together last night.

“Prob turns it on when he’s talking to her. Ugh. I feel like I’m crazy. I just talked to him. Pretty much everyone tells him I can’t be healthy and stay in here. “

Suzanne sometimes calls Barry “Jekyll and Hyde”.

And, Barry was said to have been seen with a mysterious redhead in Salida in February – months before his arrest, according to Daily mail.

He was apparently seen having dinner at a Mexican restaurant before dropping her off at a hotel.

Days later, it is alleged that he was accompanied by a woman chatting with her in his white van outside the Salida Comfort Inn.

If the case goes to trial, it is expected to begin in May 2022.
