Who was Suzanne Morphew's brother David Moorman?
David Moorman is Suzanne Morphew's brother.
In 2020, Moorman said he organized an "army search" for his sister after she went missing.
In the year since Suzanne’s disappearance, 70 investigators have been working on the case, Sheriff John Spezze said in a news conference.
Authorities have served 135 search warrants in Colorado, interviewed more than 400 people and taking about 1,400 tips on the case.
“I’m pleased with where we are at, this is a step in a long journey,” Moorman told the Denver Post of Barry Morphew's recent arrest.
“It has been a very emotional day, we are trying to wrestle with what has happened.”
Moorman, of Indiana, said his family is “thankful” for the efforts made by authorities in the case.
What did Barry Morphew say about his wife's disappearance?
Barry Morphew recorded a video after his wife went missing in 2020.
"Oh Suzanne, if anyone is out there and can hear this, that has you, please, we’ll do whatever it takes to bring you back," her husband begged in the video.
"We love you, we miss you, your girls need you.
"No questions asked, however much they want – I will do whatever it takes to get you back. Honey, I love you, I want you back so bad."
Barry Morphew also offered a $100,000 reward for information on his wife's whereabouts – an amount matched by a concerned family friend.
Has Barry Morphew been arrested?
Barry Morphew was caught on camera being handcuffed by the side of the road near his home on Wednesday, May 5.
A recorded clip shows the murder suspect, 53, surrounded by cop cars as he speaks to an officer in Poncha Springs.
It comes after it was revealed Barry Morphew was spotted with a mystery woman in February two months before he was taken into custody, reports the Daily Mail.
Morphew – who has maintained his innocence over the past year – was seen tucking into a dinner with a younger redhead at a Mexican restaurant in Salida before dropping her off at a hotel.
Then, two days later, he was seen with the same woman in conversation with her in his white truck outside the Salida Comfort Inn.
The sightings and arrest come after Suzanne, 49, went missing last Mother's Day, with her body still not been found.
Police confirmed in a press conference that Morphew has been charged with first-degree murder, tampering with evidence, and attempting to influence a public servant in his wife's disappearance.
