BARRY Morphew looked "fearful" as he appeared in court charged with murder over Suzanne's disappearance, an expert has claimed.

Suzanne, 49, was reported missing by her neighbor on Mother's Day last May 10 after she allegedly vanished after going on a bike ride.

Chaffee County Sheriff’s Office and the 11th Judicial District Attorney’s Office announced they arrested Barry and charged him with the death of his wife. They have said no other arrests will be made.

Patti Wood, a body language guru who has been quoted in countless print articles and appeared on news shows, gave her assessment of Barry’s public appeals last year and his appearance at a court in Colorado.

Morphew released a public appeal on May 10, 2020, just days after she vanished as he pleaded for his wife’s safe return.

He appeared extremely distressed in the clip and on the verge of tears as he appeared in the clip along with a tip line for the FBI.

Wood viewed the clip and said she found it “unsettling to watch” as she dissected the footage, reports DailyMail.com.

She said: “We see pain in his face, but notice it doesn’t move across his face and change as he speaks, but seems set like a mask which reveals that he put on or faked the pained expressions.”

Wood also looked at Morphew’s first court appearance after he was arrested and charged with the alleged murder of Suzanne – and said he looked fearful.

    Despite cops charging Barry Morphew with murder, Suzanne's body has still not been found.

    Police confirmed in a press conference that Barry, has been charged with first-degree murder, tampering with evidence, and attempting to influence a public servant in his wife's disappearance.

    Cops also confirmed that they now believe Suzanne is no longer alive.

    Suzanne Morphew, 49, was reported missing by her neighbor last Mother's Day, May 10, 2020.

    During the press conference, cops described her as "very easy to like," and someone who was "cherished by her closest friends."

    District Attorney Linda Stanley told reporters at the conference that even though a body has not been found, her office would not have brought charges without being "confident" about the case.

    “I promise and I promised my girls that.”

    INSIDE SUZANNE MORPHEW’S DISAPPEARANCE AND POSSIBLE DEATH (PART 2)

    Barry published the video and Facebook page a week after Suzanne was reported missing by a neighbor, who was contacted by the couple’s two daughters.

    Suzanne had just celebrated her 49th birthday in the days before that bike ride. When her daughters Mallory and Macy Morphew couldn’t get in touch with her, they asked a neighbor to check in on her.

    Barry was allegedly in Denver, about 140 miles away, and stayed in a hotel in the city the night before as he prepared for a landscaping job.

    After the neighbor called authorities, a search immediately began, with drones and scent-tracking dogs used to try to track the former teacher down.

    Barry initially claimed that Suzanne could have been the victim of an animal attack although dogs were not able to find a scent.

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

    INSIDE SUZANNE MORPHEW’S DISAPPEARANCE AND POSSIBLE DEATH (PART 1)

    As husband Barry Morphew appeared in Chaffee County court on Thursday without entering a plea regarding his first degree murder charges, many are wondering what happened to his wife Suzanne Murphew.

    On Mother’s Day last year – May 10, 2020, Suzanne went on a solo bike ride never to be seen again.

    In the days that followed Suzanne’s disappearance, Barry pled for people on social media to share any information regarding her whereabouts.

    He said he would “do whatever it takes” in a video posted to a Facebook page called “Find Suzanne Morphew.”

    “Oh Suzanne, if anyone is out there that can hear this, that has you, please we’ll do whatever it takes to bring you back,” Barry Morphew said. “We love you. We miss you.
    Your girls need you.”

    BARRY MORPHEW’s FIRST COURT APPEARANCE ANALYSED BY EXPERT

    Body language expert Patti Wood also looked at Morphew’s first court appearance after he was arrested and charged with the alleged murder of Suzanne.

    She said: “Handcuffs and shackles encumber him, so it isn’t easy to get a clear read on him, but overall I would say he is still feeling strong.

    “He is standing up fairly straight and, even with the handcuffs, his carriage is held upwards.”

    She said he kept his head up and didn’t look “submissive or shamed” – suggested he may have been attempting to hide his fear.

    “He did have one captured glance of stark fear and I wish I knew what was going on in that moment,” Wood added.
