    FRAZEE TRIAL DAY 9 LUNCHTIME NOTES:

    • CBI DNA analyst Caitlin Rogers retook the stand for cross-examination. Defense attorney Adam Stiegerwald had her run through several evidence items taken from Berreth’s townhome. He points out that Krystal Kenney’s DNA is never found on any of the evidence. Also, when Frazee’s DNA is found on two separate parts of the torn up living room floorboards, the level of certainty is significantly lower compared to Berreth’s DNA.

    • On redirect, lead prosecutor Jennifer Viehman asked Rogers if she was surprised at the absence of Kenney’s DNA. Knowing Kenney wore protective clothing and used bleach, Rogers testified she wasn’t surprised. She notes they use bleach at the CBI lab to sterilize their stations.

    • A Teller County DHS worker testified on her Dec. 26 interview of Frazee. This was done to gather information for a custody decision on the couple’s daughter. She didn’t offer much new information — saying Frazee said they were working on co-parenting and that Berreth wanted to go their separate ways.

    • CBI Agent Gregg Slater, one of the lead law agents on the case, also retook the stand. He says he doesn’t know where this investigation would be without Kenney coming forward to cooperate. Stiegerwald was quick to point out (again) Kenney didn’t offer her full interview until the plea deal was signed. On redirect, Viehman clarifies that Kenney offered a brief initial statement before the plea deal was signed.

    • We’re waiting on a witness that flew in this morning. Court will resume at 1 p.m. MT.

    Also this afternoon, with testimony for their case winding down, prosecutors began reviewing an elaborate timeline created by investigators, & they ticked off each event that happened in this case, beginning on Thanksgiving Day last year. @csgazette #PatrickFrazee #KelseyBerreth

    1:56 PM - 14 Nov 2019

    Jakob Rodgers‏ @JakobRodgers
    Cell phone records also showed #KelseyBerreth's phone later traveling with Krystal Lee's phone west on I-70 and north to Idaho. Berreth's phone was locked up on cell towers near Grand Junction, Salt Lake City & Idaho, according to testimony. @csgazette

    1:55 PM - 14 Nov 2019

    Jakob Rodgers‏ @JakobRodgers
    Also, cell records bolster Krystal Lee's testimony last week that after cleaning #KelseyBerreth's apartment on Nov. 24, 2018, Lee accompanied #PatrickFrazee to barn by Cripple Creek, where Berreth's body was stashed. @csgazette

    1:54 PM - 14 Nov 2019

    Jakob Rodgers‏ @JakobRodgers
    UPDATE: FBI cell phone investigator testifies #PatrickFrazee & #KelseyBerreth's phones were together repeatedly after she was allegedly killed. Testimony contradicts Frazee's statements to authorities that he last saw Berreth on Thanksgiving Day last year, Nov. 22. @csgazette

    We’ve also heard from a @CSPDPIO officer that works in the VICE unit, specializing in strategic communication. He built a timeline for all relevant events on the case from Nov. 22-25. He’s going through it. @KOAA #KelseyBerreth #PatrickFrazee #KrystalKenney

    This afternoon, FBI Special Agent Kevin Hoyland finished his testimony on cell phone records. It appears to validate Krystal Kenney’s story. @KOAA #KelseyBerreth #PatrickFrazee #KrystalKenney

    Kelsey Berreth murder case: DNA testing on key pieces of evidence provides mixed results – The Denver Post

    PUBLISHED: November 13, 2019 at 11:02 am | UPDATED: November 13, 2019 at 5:18 pm

    [...]

    Prosecutors also asked Berreth’s coworkers if they ever saw signs that Berreth had problems with drugs or alcohol, as Frazee had told multiple people in Teller County. Each said they saw no such signs.

    Her coworkers also said that Berreth loved being a mother to her and Frazee’s daughter, Kaylee, and that Berreth never talked about giving up custody of the child. Frazee told others that Berreth had given up all her rights to the child and abused the girl.

    Frazee told multiple people that Berreth went to rehab for addiction, testimony on Tuesday showed. But Berreth’s friends said that wasn’t true. One friend, Peter Sergev, said that Berreth went to California for some days in 2018 for treatment for depression and anxiety.

    Her coworkers described Berreth as a hardworking, sweet young woman who did not often speak of her private life.

    Court ends early again today. We’re still not done – expecting more witnesses for prosecution tomorrow. Judge tells jury we’re still moving quicker than originally expected and they *may hear closing arguments tomorrow afternoon

    3:32 PM - 14 Nov 2019

    Jennifer Meckles‏Verified account @jennifermeckles
    Jurors hear near minute-by-minute of Kelsey, Patrick, and Krystal’s movements and communication from 11/22/18 until 12/4/18 – the day Patrick’s phone was seized by police. This takes more than an hour to get through, but it helps organize previous testimony

    3:32 PM - 14 Nov 2019

    Jennifer Meckles‏Verified account @jennifermeckles
    Final witness today works for CO Springs PD, as an intelligence analyst. He assisted with this case by taking all the phone and surveillance evidence, plus witness info, and creating a detailed timeline of events

    3:32 PM - 14 Nov 2019

    Jennifer Meckles‏Verified account @jennifermeckles
    We’ve heard Krystal’s testimony about what happened on those days, prosecution appears to be showing phone evidence to corroborate each part of her story. Its tedious testimony, tracing 3 phones through multiple towers over several days

    3:32 PM - 14 Nov 2019

    Jennifer Meckles‏Verified account @jennifermeckles
    He walks jurors through the locations of Frazee’s phone, Kelsey’s phone, and Krystal’s phone on the day of the alleged murder (11/22/18), and the next several days after

    3:32 PM - 14 Nov 2019

    Jennifer Meckles‏Verified account @jennifermeckles
    This afternoon, FBI agent Kevin Hoyland returned to the stand. He previously testified about cell phone records in this case and came back to talk more about that issue.

    Patrick Frazee claimed his fiancée told him to keep their daughter after 'heated' conversation | Daily Mail Online
    [...]

    He gave his account of the days leading up to and following Thanksgiving last year – the time when Berreth, the mother of his daughter, Kaylee, was last seen.

    But cellphone signal, landline calls and surveillance stills from a variety of stores near Berreth’s home directly contradict Frazee’s account of the last time he saw Berreth.

    [...]

    He has listened to testimony at Teller County DistrictCourt withoutt any reaction.

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    [...]

    Senior Criminal Intelligence Analyst, Kevin Clark set out the detailed and damning timeline built from all the available data across November 22 to 25th last year and presented to the court on Thursday afternoon.

    [...]

    He had numerous communications with Kenney later on Thanksgiving afternoon and into the evening. And shortly after 10pm on Thanksgiving night, pings showed Berreth and Frazee’s phones traveling together to the Nash ranch – where investigators found the burn site – and back towards Florissant.

    The following day Kenney’s phone showed her traveling from her home in Idaho and towards Colorado. Activity monitored across the next two days showed her loop round through Florissant, Woodland Park and back to Idaho where Kelsey’s last cellphone activity registered and from where her last alleged text message was sent.

    [...]

    Longmire said the day before Thanksgiving, Frazee told her Berreth had called him to come and pick up Kaylee but that he couldn't make it right away, so they agreed to meet at Florissant Post Office an hour and a half later.

    She said: 'He said they met and started a conversation about their relationship and they decided to keep talking while they drove to the Nash ranch and at that point it was about going their separate ways and they would share custody of Kaylee 50/50.'

    [...]

    Frazee maintained that he and Berreth texted and spoke over the next three days – and that the plan had been for him to pick Kaylee up about 12.30pm on Thanksgiving Day and that she would be with her mother in the morning.

    Longmire said: 'He said he picked up Kaylee up about 12.30 Thanksgiving Day. I assumed at their home…and that they agreed to speak again Friday morning.'

    She said instead, Frazee 'received a text from Berreth asking him to keep Kaylee…and saying she wanted to go to church by herself and that they would talk later.'

    [...]

    Assistant DA Jennifer Viehman pressed the point, saying: 'He said that was an actual conversation?' Longmire answered: 'Yes.'

    At the time of that alleged conversation, investigators found Berreth's cell phone connected to Frazee's mistress, Krystal Lee Kenney, near the Colorado-Utah border.

    [...]

    Slater said that they began to put together a picture of their relationship from the content and pattern of the messages.

    [...]

    'There were also text messages where Kelsey was expressing frustration and anger with the status of the relationship, the direction of the relationship, where it was going, from time to time and her concerns with that.'

    Agents studied messages and Facebook posts and comments from Berreth to Frazee as far back as April 2018.

    Agent Slater said: 'At one point she spoke about the promise that had been made for her to come down here to establish a life together, a family together and it's not going to be that way. Do you love me?'

    [...]

    'There may be a response back from Patrick (occasionally saying) 'we love you.'

    'But they were few and far between.'

    Similarly, Slater noted that Berreth often sent links of properties for sale to Frazee via Facebook with a comment such as, 'Hey look at this nice property. Check this out.'

    [...]

    Agent Slater also revealed that cops might never have discovered the burn pit on Frazee's property, the blood in the bathroom of Berreth's home or other vital forensic evidence without the co-operation of Frazee's mistress Krystal Lee Kenney.

    [...]

    Asked where the investigation would have gone without Kenney's co-operation he said, 'I honestly don't know.'

    Frazee leaned back in his chair and stared into the middle distance as Slater testified that it was Kenney who broke the case they might never have cracked.

    On Wednesday, the court heard how Frazee bad-mouthed Berreth to multiple people, saying she had a drink and drug problem, would disappear for months and speculated she had 'run off' to 'sort herself out'.

    [...]

    Earlier in the day, Alyssa Smith, who has known Frazee since she was a child, said he only mentioned he had a daughter a month prior to Berreth's disappearance. He had never spoken of Berreth up until that point.

    Smith admitted: 'I was shocked. He said that he always had [Kaylee] and that he went and picked her up from the hospital when she was born.

    'He said that her mom told him to come pick her up. He said he had full custody of the child.

    [...]

    But a string of Berreth's former colleagues at Doss Aviation where she was a flight instructor, cast doubt on Frazee's assertions describing Berreth as a 'strong woman,' who completed grueling training and was 'very happy' to be a mother.

    Jennifer Barks, the Human Resources executive at Doss Aviation where Berreth was a flight instructor, testified that Frazee was listed as the beneficiary on Berreth's life insurance policy.

    [...]

    Banks said: 'He told me that he was aware [of the reports]. He told me that Kelsey had gone to him, given him the baby and said she needed a break, she needed to figure things out, she didn't know what to do with her life and would be taking some space.

    'He said she had a drug and alcohol problem and that she had gone away for that in the past and he didn't know if it was related to that.'

    [...]

    Hill recalled: 'There was one conversation she said, ''Something really weird happened to me yesterday.'' She said a random lady had come over to her house with coffee.'

    'I asked if she drank it she said no.'

    [...]

    The court heard on Wednesday that Berreth's blood was found in locations throughout her townhouse.

    [...]

    On Tuesday Kayla Daugherty, who had a relationship with Frazee for six to eight weeks during 2016, claimed Frazee told her that Teller County was so vast you could 'get rid of someone' and no-one would know. She said that he made the comment in 2015.

    Frazee worked as her farrier from 2010 until 2018 though she said that their relationship lasted just six to eight weeks and was 'more sexual,' than romantic in nature.

    [...]

    In testimony Greasby was taken through a series of text messages that she and Frazee exchanged across Thanksgiving last year and early December last year.

    [...]

    The texts spanned November 21 through to December 11, covering the period during which Berreth was missing. Yet Frazee made no mention of this. Instead at the time he asked Greasby to dinner - she did not go - while she offered to keep him company on drives.

    [...]

    Frazee told Greasby that he was seeking full custody of his daughter and described her mother as 'in rehab' and 'bi-polar.'

    Another former client, Catherine Donahue, told the court that Frazee 'never had anything nice to say about Kelsey,' who he claimed was 'absolutely crazy' and had 'abandoned her baby directly after the birth.'

    [...]

    Expert witness Jerry Means, Investigations Chief at Adams County Fire and Rescue Denver testified Tuesday that a burn site found on Frazee's ranch had tell-tale signs of a body having been placed in a plastic tote and burned to the point of consumption.

    [...]

    Berreth's family sat in the front row of the Teller County court room as the court heard gruesome testimony about the impact of fire on a human body and Means pointed out to an oily patch of ground, next to the burn site.

    The soil was fused together in a way that could only have been caused by burning plastic, he said. And the oily stain was consistent with human body oil.

    [...]

    Means described the chronology of a body burned to the point of destruction. He said: 'Small parts go first, fingers and toes, they dislocate from larger items, your hands for example. The big muscles like your forearms dry out and draw up and it causes the arms to go into a sort of pugilistic posture.'

    He said that the same 'drawing up' occurs with the legs and feet with the pelvic area and torso being the last to go before.

    [...]

    Margaret Luce, a former client of Frazee who used his services as a farrier for her horses, took the stand to testify that Frazee had told her that Berreth 'did not want to be a mother,' and that she was 'unstable' and had threatened suicide.

    Luce claimed that in a conversation after Berreth's disappearance Frazee had shared the fact that he had returned a gun to Berreth despite having concerns that she would 'hurt herself.'

    [...]

    Later Luce tried to comfort Frazee with the comment: 'Perhaps Kelsey will come back.'

    Frazee replied: 'Oh she's not coming back.'

    [...]

    The longtime friend of Frazee took the witness stand where he revealed Frazee told him 'if there is no body, there is no crime' before and after his fiancée Berreth disappeared.

    [...]

    On one occasion after Berreth disappeared and Moore and Frazee were on a drive together, he recalled Frazee saying, 'I don't even understand why, why there's such a big deal over this.'

    'And he's like 'man, if I had known it was going to blow up this big, I never would have …'' Moore added.

    Moore, who ran cattle with Frazee at multiple leased ranches in Teller and Park counties, testified that Frazee revealed his plans to kill Berreth back in April.

    [...]

    'He said 'I figured out a way to kill her.' And I went 'don't even talk about s*** like that. Get that s*** out of your head,'' Moore recalled.

    'And he just kinda grinned and went 'no body, no crime, right?' And I said 'Patrick, get that out of your head,'' Moore added.

    [...]

    Moore said he only met Berreth twice. They first met in November 2016 before she was pregnant. She helped them move cows and Moore recalled Frazee berated her and yelled and cussed at her.

    [...]

    'He was very curious and always asking questions because he point-blank said that he had Kelsey's blood on his pants and he had Kelsey's blood on his shirt and boot, and the bottom of his boot,' Moore recalled.

    'He said 'do you think they'll be able to find any of that, even though it's all been washed?'' Moore testified.

    Frazee trial: Closing arguments expected Friday afternoon

    [​IMG]

    On paper, Friday is expected to be a big day in the Patrick Frazee murder trial — the prosecution will likely rest their case, the defense will bring up their witnesses and both sides could present their closing arguments.

    [...]

    Prosecutors said they had a couple more witnesses to bring to the stand Friday morning, though it's unclear who they may be. The defense has not yet brought forward any witnesses but is expected to do so after the prosecution rests. It was unclear if Frazee will testify.

    On Wednesday afternoon, both the prosecution and defense said they expected to be done by Friday afternoon. When Judge Sells asked how much time they'll need for closing arguments, prosecutors requested 30 minutes and the defense said an hour. The judge said both sides will get an hour.

    If the court reaches 5 p.m. before both sides rest, the closing arguments will get pushed to Monday morning.

    There is no deliberation planned for the weekend.

    Blood spatter in #KelseyBerreth's kitchen -- on refrigerator, coffee maker & high on a wall -- consistent w/ having come from one object bludgeoning a blood source (as in flying off whatever is being swung from one direction to another), analyst says.

    Analyst says blood found in #KelseyBerreth's condo is consistent with someone swinging an object onto a blood source, causing splatters across the condo. #PatrickFrazee is accused of beating Berreth to death with a baseball bat. @csgazette

    This morning we’re hearing from a crime scene expert. He essentially rebuilt the crime scene in #KelseyBerreth townhome. He said there was nothing in about the blood that made him think the crime was accidental. @KKTV11News #PatrickFrazee
    10:25 AM - 15 Nov 2019

    Ashley Franco on Twitter
    We saw a video of #KrystalLee showing investigators around the townhome and pointing out where she saw blood. Expert says her explanation of blood splatter is consistent essentially with a person being hit with a heavy object while they were on the ground. @KKTV11News

    GRUESOME testimony from a blood splatter expert. He says the small droplets of blood found in #Berreths home are consistent with a strong force. He says a baseball bat COULD have caused the splatter.

    10:26 AM - 15 Nov 2019

    Sam Kraemer on Twitter
    He says the tiny spots of blood (less than 2-3 mm in size) are actually indicative and consistent with a large force striking a blood source. We saw body cam video of Kenney leading police through Berreth’s home and pointing out where she saw blood. @KOAA #KelseyBerreth

    Kenney points out an arc on the east wall, where the TV is. She says it’s thicker toward the bottom. Priest says that’s consistent with a blood source low on the ground. He says blood spots high on the wall show it likely flew off the bat. @KOAA #KelseyBerreth #PatrickFrazee

    Holding a sample of the floor from Berreth’s condo, Priest also described two indentations on the wood plank, though he couldn’t tell exactly what hit it.

    “So something substantially heavy and substantially hard had an impact on this area and certainly a baseball bat is consistent with that,” he said.

    PATRICK FRAZEE TRIAL: Blood spatter 'absolutely' fits baseball bat murder
    Florissant rancher Patrick Frazee could have swung a baseball bat 15 times or more as he allegedly murdered his fiancee Kelsey Berreth, a witness told jurors today.

    A bloodstain pattern analyst testified that blood left in Berreth's Woodland Park townhouse is consistent with the account of a grisly attack described on the stand earlier this month by Frazee's mistress.

    "Oh absolutely," said the expert, retired police officer Jonathyn Priest.

    [...]

    Priest said a victim of such a beating could have been conscious beyond the first blow — enough to say "Please, stop," as Berreth allegedly told Frazee in seeking mercy.

    [...]

    Today is the 10th day of testimony. Opening statements were Nov. 2 and the jury has heard from more than 60 witnesses.

    [...]

    Priest told the jury he wasn't surprised by gaps in DNA at the crime scene, given that Frazee's mistress allegedly used bleach to clean up afterward.

    "To create this stain, that requires a significant blood source in order for the blood to flow in there," Priest said of the hardwood floor. "This is more than a drop of blood. This is a lot of blood."

    [...]

    According to prosecution witnesses, Frazee's cover-up included an elaborate ruse in which he and his mistress sent text messages from Berreth's phone to make it look like she was still alive, days after Frazee allegedly beat her to death.

    [...]

    Kelsey Berreth murder case: Bloodstain expert testifies on crime scene
    Kelsey Berreth’s father leaned forward in his front row seat in a Teller County courtroom and cried as a bloodstain expert testified in vivid language and with swinging motions how blood could have been splattered across his daughter’s Woodland Park condo

    [...]

    The bloodstain expert, former Denver homicide detective Jonathyn Priest, said that Krystal Lee Kenney’s description of the blood patterns she found are consistent with a high-impact attack with an object, which would spread a large quantity of small blood spots across the condo. When Fourth Judicial District Attorney Dan May asked if the stains were consistent with an attack with a bat, Priest said, “Oh, absolutely.”

    “The fact that there are small bloodstains supports my opinion that we have a forceful incident, not a passive one,” Priest said.

    [...]

    Priest testified Friday the patterns described were consistent with the use of a blunt force weapon. He also said the staining found between the slats of the wooden floor was consistent with a large pool of blood that had time to seep into cracks.

    Holding a sample of the floor from Berreth’s condo, Priest also described two indentations on the wood plank, though he couldn’t tell exactly what hit it.

    “So something substantially heavy and substantially hard had an impact on this area and certainly a baseball bat is consistent with that,” he said.

    [...]

    Priest also said that the bloodstain on the toilet – the evidence found by Berreth’s brother that intensified what started as a missing persons case – indicated that stain appeared to be from a bloody object that smeared against the bowl and not a splatter.

    Seems that defense fought really hard to keep this witness’s testimony from jury. Had multiple closed court sessions about admissability of some evidence, though not 100% sure this was the witness in question.

    Prosecutors call a former inmate to the stand who testifies he was in a prison gang & stayed in the same pod as #PatrickFrazee in jail. He shared 17 handwritten letters from Frazee where he ask the former inmate to kill several witnesses in the case, including Krystal Lee Kenney.
    12:10 PM - 15 Nov 2019

    The letters listed several people in this case: Krystal Lee (who also went by last name Kenney); her father, her siblings, her good friend, her ex-husband... as well as Joseph Moore, a longtime family friend of #PatrickFrazee, and many others. @csgazette #KelseyBerreth

    The man kept notes he says Frazee wrote to him. Slater identified the handwriting as Frazee’s. Frazee talks about “just kidnap them until Nov. 22” and that there’s open space near Kenney’s home. “She could just disappear before trial,” he says. @KOAA #KelseyBerreth
    12:32 PM - 15 Nov 2019

    Another note from Frazee says he’s not a criminal but “this planning and talking gets my blood flowing”. In exchange, the man says Frazee helped him bond out of jail. Frazee’s notes said they could “do a lot of **** together”. @KOAA #KelseyBerreth #PatrickFrazee
    12:34 PM - 15 Nov 2019

    12:36 PM - 15 Nov 2019

    "It just seemed like the right thing to do," he said.

    This was probably the most graphic of the notes (warning). It read: “I would really like to see Krystal with a bullet in her head. Piss and **** on her face. F****ng dirty c**t a** b***h.” #KelseyBerreth #PatrickFrazee #KrystalKenney

    Still on cross by defense, Bentley said he originally came forward with the #PatrickFrazee notes, because he wanted a plea deal in his pending legal case. He admitted telling an investigator that the letters were his "ticket."

    Also, on cross examination by Steigerwald, Bentley said he had previously been facing a felony burglary charge that would have netted him up to 30 years in prison. That charge, which is still pending, was recently dropped to misdemeanor. @csgazette #KelseyBerreth #PatrickFrazee

    Defense points out former inmate is a convicted felon who asked DA to help him deal w/ multiple pending cases in one county. They claim he saw the letters as his ticket out, but inmate didn't totally agree with that statement. #PatrickFrazee #kelseyberreth @DenverChannel

    Heading back in the courtroom after lunch. Prosecutors could rest their case or call another witness. We’ll update as soon as we’re able. Again, no cameras or live tweeting from courtroom. #PatrickFrazee #kelseyberreth
