New evidence found 700 miles from where Kelsey Berreth was last seen lead to the arrest of her fiance Patrick Frazee.


Almost a month after the disappearance of Kelsey Berreth, police arrested and charged Patrick Frazee with first-degree murder of his fiance, the mother of his child.

Booked at the Teller County Jail, Patrick will be held without bond, while formal charges will be filed in about a week, as the District Attorney, Dan May of the 4th Judicial District, said during a news conference held on December 21.


Kelsey Berreth vanished on Thanksgiving Day near Woodland Park, a city between Colorado Springs and Denver.

The Twin Falls Police Department announced on Saturday that the FBI contacted them on December 15 for help with the investigation. Kelsey’s cell phone last pinged from the Twin Falls area, and further investigation was needed.

Working with the FBI and Colorado Bureau of Investigations, the Twin Falls County Sheriff’s Office and Twin Falls Police Department aided in the preparation and serving of several search warrants during which several items got bagged as evidence.


During a joint statement Sheriff Tom Carter and Chief Craig Kingsbury wrote:

“We are pleased our organizations were able to provide the assistance and support requested by the FBI, CBI, and the Woodland Park Police Department."

Twin Falls Police Department did not mention which items of evidence got found, or what exactly lead to the arrest of Patrick on Friday morning. It followed an extensive search that took days of both Patrick and Kelsey’s properties.


Friday afternoon Patrick made his first appearance in court by video during which the judge never addressed him directly.

The prosecution's request that Patrick has no contact with anyone named in the sealed arrest affidavit, except for his family, got granted by the judge. While Patrick’s attorney, Jeremy Loew had no comment but issued a statement later during the day wherein he said his client “continues to cooperate with law enforcement.”


Authorities believe that Kelsey is no longer alive, although they have not found her body. A motive for Kelsey’s murder has also not been established yet.

Twin Falls police department ask that any further media inquiries should be directed to Ms. Lee Richards at leerichards@elpasoco.com or (719) 520-6084 or (719)425-5868.

Patrick was the last person to see Kelsey alive face to face on Thanksgiving Day when Kelsey dropped their 1-year-old daughter off at Patrick’s house.


The last footage taken of Kelsey alive was at a Safeway market on Thanksgiving Day as CCTV footage showed her entering the store with her one-year-old daughter, close to noon, Kelsey later met with Patrick to take their daughter for the day.

The search of his 35-acre property in Florissant, Colo included around 75 people and spanned over two days. An anonymous donor also offered a reward of $25,000 for information leading to the safe return of Kelsey, but nothing turned up so far.
