Patrick Frazee has been named as the man who was once engaged to deceased Colorado woman, Kelsey Berreth –and who is now being accused of her murder.
Frazee has been charged as the primary suspect in Kelsey’s death; he is now facing five murder counts. He was charged with two counts of first-degree murder and three counts of solicitation to commit murder in the first degree.
The former couple share a one-year-old daughter. People close to the former couple, said the two met online two years ago when Berreth lived in Warden, Washington. Within months, Berreth moved to Colorado to be with Frazee. They split earlier this year.
29-year-old Kelsey Berreth went missing last month, the mom of one vanished on Thanksgiving near Woodland Park –according to reports Patrick Frazee was the last person to see Berreth before she disappeared and police do not think she is alive at this point. However, her body is yet to be found. Her mother said during a press conference this is unlike her and that she wouldn’t run off.
Police have a couple of theories, on one hand –they think Patrick could have acted alone; on the other, they believe he and others could have killed her during a robbery. Authorities also find odd that he failed to report her missing, despite have their daughter that entire time.
Frazee however has good credentials; the 32-year-old is the owner of a business shoeing horses in Teller County –and for that reason he is well known and well regarded in the community. Some even described her a ‘good father’ to daughter Kaylee. A judge awarded custody of Kaylee to the maternal grandparents on a temporary basis.
He is also described as a cattle rancher who lives with his mother at a farm where they keep cattle and horses.
