Kelsey Berreth Case: Fiance Patrick Frazee Charged With Missing Colorado Mom's Murder

Kelsey Berreth Case: Fiance Patrick Frazee Charged With Missing Colorado Mom's Murder

The fiancé of 29-year-old Colorado mother Kelsey Berreth has been charged with first-degree murder, a month after she disappeared.

Last week, Frazee's attorney, Jeremy Loew, said his client "continues to cooperate with law enforcement in the missing person investigation", ABC reported.

Frazee was the only person arrested in the case as of Friday morning, De Young said, and officials wouldn't provide any more detail about how they came to the solicitation charge.

Kelsey Berreth, 29, was last seen in a grocery store near her home in Woodland Park, about 15 miles (24 kilometers) from Florissant.

A police investigation was opened December 2 after Berreth's mother asked for a welfare check. Surveillance video showed her walking in on Thanksgiving Day with what appears to be the couple's daughter in a baby carrier. They have not determined a motive, he said. Formal charges will be filed in the next few days, he said, and affidavits are now sealed.

De Young said the child is in protective custody and will be turned over to Berreth's family.

The disappearance of the young pilot mystified family and friends and led to a social media push for information on her whereabouts. "This is completely out of character", Cheryl Berreth said.

Authorities searched Frazee's cattle ranch and Berreth's townhome but declined to say what they found. De Young did say evidence suggests "the crime" occurred at Berreth's home and that her cellphone was found in Idaho.

Woodland Park Police also announced they would hold a news conference at noon ET, according to a post on the department's Facebook page.

To top it off, the fart spray is programmed to emit gross odors five times, which prompts package thieves to immediately toss it. A Global Positioning System tracker in the phones would let him know where a package ultimately ended up.

The reward for information leading to finding Berreth is $25,000, Woodland Park police said. Location data later suggested that by November 25 the phone was in Idaho, 800 miles (1,290 kilometres) from Berreth's home.

Greg Couch confirmed Patrick Frazee was arrested Friday morning in Woodland Park, Colorado. "She's reliable, considerate, and honest".

Additional arrests are possible, the chief said.

"I understand why they can't provide them", says JoDee Garretson, 50, a first cousin to Berreth's mother, Cheryl, who first reported her daughter missing on December 2, 10 days after she disappeared.

"Mr. Frazee hopes and prays for Ms. Berreth's return", Loew said that day.

Authorities have searched the property of Berreth's fiancé Patrick Frazee and their search there involved heavy digging equipment. De Young said they are working to recover her phone.

Berreth and Frazee did not live together, according to relatives, and Berreth's daughter has been living Frazee.

Frazee voluntarily released his phone to be searched and allowed officers to take a DNA sample on December 12, his lawyer said.

Authorities said as many as 30 FBI agents are participating in the investigation in several states.
