Search warrants released by Colorado authorities this week showed that investigators found loose teeth during a search of accused killer Patrick Frazee’s home shortly after Kelsey Berreth’s disappearance.
Berreth, who was engaged to Frazee, was last seen on Thanksgiving Day at a Safeway supermarket with her and Frazee’s 1-year-old daughter. The couple did not live together. Investigators have said they believe Berreth was murdered in her home on that same day, November 22. Her body has not been found, and authorities are currently searching a Colorado landfill for evidence.
Included in the documents released on Wednesday is a search warrant of Frazee’s residence in Florissant, Colorado, and the findings of investigators. According to the records, Woodland Park police searched the property on December 14, and found “multiple bags containing adult molars in multiple rooms throughout the residence” that Patrick shared with his mother Sheila Frazee.
Frazee was arrested and charged with murder the week following the discovery of the teeth and additional evidence, including bottles of bleach and other household cleaning products that tested positive for traces of blood.
As CrimeOnline previously reported, Krystal Lee Kenney, an Idaho-based nurse who was in a relationship with Frazee and who admitted to having knowledge of Berreth’s murder, told investigators that Frazee had ordered her to clean up Berreth’s Woodland Park townhouse after he allegedly killed Berreth. Kenney reportedly claimed that Frazee told her he hit Berreth in the head with a bat and that the force of the blow caused some of her teeth to fall out. Frazee allegedly told Kenney to look for a loose tooth he believed was left behind at the townhouse. Kenney told investigators that she did find the tooth and disposed of it.
Kenney also claimed that Frazee later burned evidence connected to the alleged murder, and investigators reportedly believe Berreth’s body was among the items burned at the Florissant property, while Kenney was present.
The search warrants further detail text message exchanges between Berreth’s phone and Frazee’s phone that authorities believe took place after Berreth’s death.
