Remains of missing Chaffee County woman Suzanne Morphew found

SAGUACHE COUNTY, Colo. (KRDO) - After more than three years since she disappeared, the Colorado Bureau of Investigation announced the remains of Suzanne Morphew have been found.

According to the CBI, her remains were found during a search on Sept. 22. They were positively identified as Morphew, 49, by the El Paso County Coroner on Sept. 27.

Morphew was first reported missing from her Chaffee County home on May 10, 2020, Mother's Day.

Below is an interactive timeline of the Morphew case, dating back to when she went missing:

The CBI told KRDO investigators were searching in the area of Moffat in Saguache County for 55-year-old Edna Quintana who went missing in May. That's when investigators found human remains.

According to the CBI, specific information about the location and the state of the remains are being withheld at this time.

No arrests have been made since Morphew was found. Officials said her family was notified following the formal identification of her remains.

“Although locating Suzanne’s remains is a critical component of this investigation, and for her family, we are left with many more questions than answers, and it would be a disservice to conduct a news conference at this time,” said Chaffee County Sheriff Spezze.

Her remains were found in the 12th Judicial District. District Attorney Anne Kelly has been notified.

The CBI said updates will be provided as information becomes available.

The public is asked to continue to report any information about this case by calling (719) 312-7530.
