Kelsey Berreth Case: Authorities Extend Search for Colorado Mom to Landfill
Her fiance has been charged with murder, though police have not found her body.
Authorities have extended the search for the body of a missing Colorado mother to a landfill.
Kelsey Berreth, a 29-year-old mother of one, is presumed dead and her fiance has been charged with her murder. But officials have yet to locate her body.
Now, a spokesperson at Midway Landfill in Fountain has said police have their eye on the property.
“The Colorado Bureau of Investigation contacted Waste Management of Colorado regarding a potential search at Midway Landfill and we are cooperating fully,” a spokeswoman from the company, Anne Spitza, told ABC News.
The landfill is around a 40-mile drive from where Berreth was last spotted with her daughter on Thanksgiving.
Her fiance, Patrick Frazee, who is also the father of her 1-year-old daughter, has been charged with two counts of first-degree murder and three counts of solicitation to commit murder.
He told authorities he met Berreth around noon on Thanksgiving so he could pick up their daughter at a local supermarket.
Another woman is being investigated for possibly disposing of Berreth’s cellphone after the alleged murder. Her phone pinged a tower in Idaho three days after she went missing.
A text was also sent from her phone to her boss saying she would not be at work that week.
Frazee has yet to enter a plea and is set to appear in court again on Jan. 29.
Berreth’s parents have also filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Frazee.
