Missing Colorado mother Suzanne Morpheus: Where does the case stand two years later?

Last Sunday, boaters discovered skeletal remains inside a barrel at the bottom of Lake Mid. A severe drought has lowered water levels so much that Las Vegas’ maximum water intake became visible last week.

Homicide Lt. Ray Spencer said the body was that of a man who had been shot. He said the killings probably took place between the mid-1970s and early 1980s because the victim was wearing shoes made at the time.

Spencer told KLAS-TV on Monday that “there was a very good chance that we would find extra human remains as the water level dropped.”
