Barry Morphew latest news LIVE: Suzanne Morphew's friend pleads for closure as search for murder suspect's wife deepens

A FRIEND of Suzanne Morphew has publicly appealed to murder suspect Barry Morphew to reveal what happened to his missing wife.

The Colorado mom-of-two went missing last Mother’s Day and her body has still not been found.

Suzanne’s friend Tisha Leewaye is now demanding for Barry to disclose what happened to his wife, telling local outlet KOA: "Just please tell us where she is at so we can get the closure that everyone wants."

Leewaye told the outlet that she will not give up on her quest to find her missing friend’s remains.

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.

The news comes after Barry was allegedly seen out with a mystery redhead two months before he was arrested on suspicion of murdering his wife Suzanne.

It was revealed Barry, 53, was spotted with a mystery woman in February, reports the Daily Mail.

The murder suspect –  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.

    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.

    BARRY MORPHEW ‘FAKED DISTRESS’ SAYS BODY LANGUAGE EXPERT (CONTINUED…)

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

    Wood theorized that Barry shaking his head during what the seemingly emotional plea show "that might not be true or are not what he wants".

    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."

    And she also dissected what he said, saying his plea of "Oh, Suzanne" appears to be "forced" and it seemed "speeded up and over rather than lingering with affection or concern".

    Wood also pointed to the fact he rarely mentioned Suzanne's name, adding: "Spouses typically repeat their [missing] partner's name over and over, and keep talking and pleading endlessly until they run out of time on the segment or until they break down with emotion."
