The Colorado Bureau of Investigation has said that human remains found at an abandoned truck stop in Aguiar, Colorado, are not related to the presumed murder of missing mother and pilot Kelsey Berreth.
The CBI posted a statement on Twitter in response to multiple media requests about the identified human remains, which were found about 130 miles from Woodland Park, where Berreth lives and was last seen.
We've received a number of media calls about the human remains located in Aguilar (near Trinidad). While the coroner has not made official identification, CBI agents do not believe the remains are Kelsey Berreth. https://t.co/Bg2M2hhfq7

“While the coroner has not made an official identification,” the message reads, “CBI agents do not believe the remains are Kelsey Berreth.”
Patrick Frazee, the father of Berreth’s 1-year-old daughter, was charged with Berreth’s murder last month and is in custody facing multiple felony counts. Berreth’s body has not been found, but authorities said at a press conference announcing Frazee’s arrest last month that they believe a crime was committed at her home.
Berreth’s daughter is temporarily in the custody of her maternal grandparents, who recently filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Frazee.
