Police are investigating a bizarre Facebook post which surfaced after a woman was murdered. A woman reportedly posted "Yay the witch is dead."


A woman who coincidently shares the name of a suspected killer’s mother is being investigated after she made a bizarre post. A police warrant revealed that the woman reportedly wrote “YAY the witch is dead,” on her Facebook wall a few hours after the suspected killer murdered his fiancee.

The detail was revealed on Wednesday morning after Colorado state released more than 20 warrants related to the case. The investigation is focused on Patrick Frazee who authorities believe murdered his fiancee, Kelsey Berreth.


Frazee is believed to have killed Berreth in her Woodland Park apartment on the afternoon of November 22, 2018. She was last seen on surveillance footage with her daughter at a Safeway around 12:30 p.m. earlier that day.

Authorities went on to search a home in Florissant that Frazee shared with his mother, Sheila Frazee. The search came after Woodland Park police obtained a screenshot of a Facebook post, from an account owned by a woman with the same name as Frazee's mother, which read:

“YAY the witch is dead,” along with a picture of Glinda from “The Wizard of Oz."

According to police, the post was dated only a few hours after Berreth was believed to have been killed.


“It’s just a very strange coincidence, but it is not Patrick Frazee’s mother,” said Lee Richards, a spokeswoman for the 4th Judicial District Attorney’s Office. “They saw it, they investigated it and it was not Patrick Frazee’s mother.”

Frazee was arrested at the Florissant home on December 21, the same day police publicly revealed they believed Berreth was dead. Her body has not been found as yet.

Frazee is scheduled to be arraigned on April 8 and is expected to enter a plea deal. A judge determined last month that prosecutors needed to provide more evidence to warrant a felony trial.
