The fiancé of a woman who vanished in Colorado on Thanksgiving was spotted at a waste management facility, and police reportedly confiscated the trash he dumped there.
KRDO reports that Patrick Frazee was seen at a waste management facility in Teller County, where he lives, on Monday — along with two other men who reportedly unloaded trash from a trailer that appears to have been attached to the white pickup truck Frazee drove to the facility. According to the report, the two men arrived in separate cars, and Frazee remained in the pickup while they unloaded the trash.
Police came to collect the trash, and the news station reportedly photographed police vehicles on the waste management property. Authorities did not discuss any investigatory purpose of the trash collection and did not disclose any further details when questioned by KRDO.
As CrimeOnline previously reported, law enforcement vehicles were seen at Frazee’s property on Tuesday morning, in what the Colorado Bureau of Investigation said in a statement was a “routine follow-up” to the search of Frazee’s property over the weekend. Authorities executed a search warrant at his 35-acre property on Friday and concluded the search on Sunday without finding Berreth there. It is not known if any potential evidence was found at the home.
Berreth, 29, and Frazee do not live together, as Frazee lives with his mother, and they share a 1-year-old daughter. Frazee is believed to be the last person to see Berreth on Thanksgiving, when he reportedly met with his to hand off their daughter. Earlier that same day, Berreth was seen on surveillance footage with her daughter at a Safeway supermarket in Woodland Park, near her home.
Police have not named Frazee a suspect, but have said that Berreth’s disappearance appears to be suspicious.
