Landfill search for Kelsey Berreth remains has ended — without finding a body

The search for Kelsey Berreth’s remains will continue as investigators concluded their search of a Colorado landfill on Wednesday without finding any evidence of a body.

KOAA reporter Sam Kraemer said on Twitter Wednesday afternoon that Woodland Park Police announced the conclusion of the search of Midway Landfill in Fountain, Colorado, without producing any evidence related to Berreth’s presumed murder on Thanksgiving weekend.

Patrick Frazee, the father of Berreth’s one-year-old daughter, is awaiting trial on murder charges. His friend and one-time romantic partner Krystal Lee Kenney of Idaho pleaded guilty to one count of tampering with evidence, and provided investigators with detailed, incriminating testimony against Frazee, who she says murdered Berreth on Thanksgiving Day and demanded that Kenney clean up the murder scene and help burn the remains.

“This is not the outcome we had hoped for, but we knew going into this search that there was a chance we would not locate Kelsey or evidence related to her disappearance,” Woodland Park Police Chief Miles de Young wrote in a news release, which also reiterated that the investigation is not over.

It is not known at this time if authorities are expected to search additional locations.
