Patrick Frazee was engaged to be married to 29-year-old mom of one Kelsey Berreth. Now authorities believe Frazee plotted Berreth’s disappearance and murder.
As Dearly previously reported, Berreth was last seen on Thanksgiving Day when she and Frazee met to exchange their 1-year-old baby girl.

Three days later, on November 25, Berreth’s mom called law enforcement to request a welfare check on her daughter, who wasn’t home at the time police arrived.
She was then officially reported missing on December 2.
In an attempt to locate the mom of one, authorities pinged her cell phone to Idaho, roughly 700 miles away from her home.
Police said at the time:
“It makes us wonder what she’s doing up there, or what the phone is, potentially, because she may not be there.”
Now authorities are looking at a woman from Idaho who they believe may have disposed of the cell phone.
Police believe the nurse may have helped Frazee cover up the alleged murder.
On the same day Berreth’s phone was pinged in Idaho, multiple text messages were also sent from it. One to Berreth’s employer letting them know she wouldn’t be at work for an extended period of time and another one to Frazee.
The nature of that particular text has not been made public.
A month after Berreth was reported missing, police arrested Frazee and charged him with two counts of first-degree murder and three counts of solicitation to commit murder.
Prosecutors allegedly believe that Frazee attempted to hire a person or people to kill Berreth on more than one occasion between September 1 and November 1.
Authorities believe Frazee committed the murder in one of two ways:
“Either Frazee carried out the crime on his own, or he and someone else allegedly tried to rob Berreth before she was killed.”
Berreth’s body still has not been found.
Following Frazee’s arrest, both his parents and Berreth’s parents are now in a legal battle for custody of their granddaughter. She is currently being cared for by Berreth’s.
