8:10 am Car door opened at RTD bus stop in From the AA: Barry explained that in 2019 his company had been contracted to build a retaining wall at a site in Broomfield, Colorado. Two of his contractors, Cassidy Cordova and Cody Cox, were tasked with the work. Barry said that the wall was not completed correctly and he lost $30,000.00 because of it. Barry could not recall that name… off Hwy 36 – Since January 2021, Barry has admitted to: chasing a chipmunk with a gun around the house while Suzanne was outside sunbathing, shooting a deer with a tranquilizer dart to explain a dart or needle cap in the dryer, disposing of the tranquilizer solution during his trip to Broomfield following a bull elk down Highway 50 in the 4:00 AM hour… drop #1

Barry was shown a photo of the RTD stop and asked about it. Barry said he pulled over there to GPS the job site. There was a trash can right there and he just took stuff out of this truck. Barry said whatever he threw away was probably just sitting right there on his seat. Barry said he couldn’t tell agents what it was, but it wasn’t worth anything. Barry says it was just junk, probably wrappers and cans. (Agents labeled this as Trash Run #1)
(Discussion of Exhibit 20)
Barry was shown photos of the interior of his truck with the tools, trash and disorder when it was photographed by law enforcement. He said nothing looked out of place. When asked what was in the backpack, he said, “clothes, just clothes for staying overnight.”
Q Lindsey: Eventually did the The case against Barry Morphew is largely built on the telematics of his truck and cellular phone data. So what are telematics? Since the Morphews were on Verizon, we’ll let them explain: How does telematics work? At its core, a telematics system includes a vehicle tracking device installed in a vehicle that allows the sending, receiving and storing of telemetry… come back online and be able to look at that information?
A Grusing: Yes.
Q Lindsey: When did that happen?
A Grusing: Just after 8:00 – 8:10 am when his phone was also near that bus stop in Broomfield on Highway 36.
Q Lindsey: I’m going to approach with 28 through 55. Can you review those exhibits? What are People’s 28 through 55?
A Grusing: They are — they include both surveillance photos and some Google Earth photos that depict Barry Morphew’s activity on May 10th in Broomfield.
Q Lindsey: Based on what?
A Grusing: Based upon my review of telematics and cell phone activity and then law enforcement going out and collecting video. Let me add to that law enforcement had already gone to the Broomfield hotel and collected most of that video but they were looking for other places that Barry had stopped during that time
Q Lindsey: You testified that the phone shows up at a bus stop in Broomfield and People’s 28, what is that?
A Grusing: That is a Google Earth image of when I zoom in and do street view based upon that coordinate.
Q Lindsey: And why is this photo taken?
A Grusing: Because the Ford 2013 Ford F-350 Super Duty Model: MyFord Touch : Sync Gen2 Part Number DA5T-14D212-KA VIN: 1FT8W3BT2DEB40070 From the AA: The computer activity (telematics) from Barry’s Ford F350, the activity of his cell phone and statements he made to law enforcement in multiple interviews confirm that from 2:47PM on May 9, 2020 until 5:37 AM on May 10, 2020, he… doors opened and closed. Not just the driver’s door but the passenger door as well. So I was curious as to why. If you see in the picture there’s a trash can about 20 to 30 feet — Agent Harris and I actually went to this site and we didn’t know if Barry threw something away at this site.
Q Lindsey: Was there ever a discussion about that?
A Grusing: Yes.
Q Lindsey: With who?
A Grusing: With Barry.
Q Lindsey: What was the discussion?
A Grusing: He said he did throw things away at this site but could not recall what they were.
Q Lindsey: Does that appear to be consistent with the telematics of the doors opening and closing?
A Grusing: Yes. He would have time — with the passenger door opening and closing — like it would say passenger door opened at 8:10:36 am and then passenger door closed at 8:12:13 am. So it took about a minute and a half and that trash can is only 10 to 15 steps away from where the truck was parked.
