Chaffee Sheriff Addresses Morphew Case

Chaffee County Sheriff John Spezze addressed the ongoing investigation into the disappearance of Suzanne Morphew.

On Mother’s Day, May 10th, 2020 Suzanne Morphew was reported missing to the Chaffee County Sheriff’s Office.

Almost immediately the Chaffee County Sheriff’s Office asked for assistance from the Colorado Bureau of Investigation, CBI, as well as the Federal Bureau of Investigation, FBI.

A search For Suzanne started immediately and over the course of the past nearly four months over 100 personnel, including air support, water craft, underwater equipment, drones and numerous types of K-9 have been utilized in an attempt to find Suzanne.

A tip line was immediately established and hundreds of tips have been fielded and are being investigated.

The investigation team has conducted hundreds of interviews both in Colorado and out of state and continue to develop leads and contact potential persons who may have information into the disappearance of Suzanne.

With the assistance of both the CBI and the FBI our investigate team has tapped the full resources of both agencies.

As with any investigation our responsibility and priority is to determine the facts and maintain the integrity of the investigation. Our sole focus is either finding Suzanne or determining the circumstances behind her disappearance and the only way to do this is to keep the information gathered as the result of this investigation under seal.

The Chaffee County Sheriff’s Office, CBI, FBI and the 11 th Judicial District continue to devote our resources to this investigation. Not one day has passed since Suzanne was reported missing that our investigative team has not been focused on Suzanne Morphew.

Our investigative team is committed to releasing information to the public ONLY when it is in the best interest of Suzanne Morphew and this investigation.

If there are new developments in this case or information is going to be released it will be disseminated through an official written press release.

Thank You,
John A. Spezze
Chaffee County Sheriff
