“We’ve been silent for a long time and we’ve decided that we finally want to break the silence,” said Morphew’s daughter, Mallory Morphew, who joined her father for the interview along with her sister. “It’s been an emotional roller coaster, but we feel like we can finally take our first steps in healing, which is a blessing.”
“We just know our dad better than anyone else and we know he was not involved in our mom’s disappearance,” het sy bygevoeg.
Morphew’s other daughter, Macy Morphew, called for District Attorney Linda Stanley to do more to find their mother.
“I just hope that Linda [Stanley] will step up to the plate and do everything she can to find our mom, because what they’ve done it’s not fair and we’re never going to stop looking for our mom,” she told Good Morning America.
Iris Eytan, the family’s attorney, said prosecutors need to be held responsible and “pay for the damage they’ve caused to Barry,” calling the damage to his reputation “nearly irreparable.”
The case against Morphew was dismissed without prejudice, meaning prosecutors could still pursue charges against Morphew in the future.
