Police arrest fiancé of missing Colorado mom Kelsey Berreth one month after she disappeared

Colorado Police arrested Patrick Frazee for the murder of his fiancee.

Kelsey Berreth vanished on November 22, 2018, near her Woodland Park home in Colorado. 

A week after she was last seen, her mother, Cheryl, contacted the Police who started searching for the 29-year-old. Now, her fiancee Patrick Frazee has been arrested for her murder, reported ABC correspondent Clayton Sandell on Twitter on December 21, 2018.

"She's not the kind that runs of. This is completely out of character. Kelsey loves her God, she loves her family and friends, and she loves her job. She's reliable, considerate and honest."

After a search of Frazee's home and 30-plus-acre property in Florissant, Colorado, by a party of 75 officers, an arrest warrant has been issued for first-degree murder and solicitation to commit murder.

Although Berreth's body has not been found yet, the Colorado Police, the Colorado Bureau of Investigation and the FBI believe that she has been murdered by the father of her 1-year-old child.

The investigation is ongoing, and Police have indicated that they have information that may help them to narrow down the search for Berreth's body.


Berreth's cell phone was traced to Gooding, Idaho. Berreth, 800 miles northwest of Woodland Park. The missing woman's boss at Doss Aviation where Berreth worked as a flight instruction received a text from her cell phone 3 days after her disappearance.

The text informed him that Berreth wouldn’t be at work the next week. Frazee told Police that Berreth also sent him a text the same day, and even though he handed his telephone in to authorities, the content of the message has not been made public.


The charges leveled at Frazee include solicitation of a first-degree murder, which indicated that law enforcement authorities have evidence that he had contacted or contracted a third party to kill Berreth.

The investigation is ongoing, and Police have indicated that they have information that may help them to narrow down the search for Berreth's body.

The prosecutor's office, who will be leading the investigation from now on, has not ruled out further arrests in connection with Kelsey Berreth's murder. Her daughter is in protective custody and will be handed over to her family later today.

Another Colorado man, Chris Watts has been sentenced to three terms of life in prison without the possibility of parole for the killing of his pregnant wife, Shanann, and his two young daughters Bella, 4, and Celeste.

Watts had apparently murdered his family after an argument during which he asked his 34-year-old wife for a divorce.

Watts had been conducting a clandestine affair with a work colleague who believed that he was in the process of a divorce.

Watts initially admitted to killing his wife but said he did so after she had killed the children. Subsequently, Watts pleaded guilty to the murders in order to avoid the death penalty.
