The Most Shocking Details That Led to Kelsey Berreth's Fiancé's Arrest

A young mother's Thanksgiving Day disappearance seems to finally have been solved.

Kelsey Berreth was last seen in public on Nov. 22 shopping at a grocery store in Colorado, but wasn't reported missing until almost 10 days later on Dec. 2 by her mother. And since then, the details that emerged about her disappearance kept getting more shocking, especially regarding her relationship with her fiancé and the father of her young daughter, Patrick Frazee.

And on Dec. 21, almost one month after she was last seen, the police arrested Patrick, 32, charging him with Kelsey's murder. 

"Today we arrested Patrick Frazee on charges of first degree murder of Kelsey Berreth," Woodland Park Police Department Chief Miles De Young said in a press conference. "He is currently being held in the Teller County Jail."

While their 1-year-old daughter had been in his care since Kelsey's disappearance, she is now in protective custody and was expected to be reunited with Kelsey's family soon, according to police. On Thursday, Dec. 27, a Colorado judge awarded temporary physical custody of the little girl to Kelsey's parents. 

Today's emergency custody hearing also marked the first time Kelsey's mother, Cheryl Berreth, came face-to-face with her daughter's alleged murderer. Neither Cheryl or Patrick—who entered the courtroom shackled at his hands and feet—addressed each other directly, and both ignored questions from the media. Patrick's mother was also present. 

At the time of last week's press conference, De Young said they have not determined a motive, but did reveal that investigators "recovered a number of items" during their search of Kesley's home to determine the murder likely took place there.
