    A cousin has worked for the Garfield County Sheriff’s Office
    An uncle FF is a retired Kiowa County sheriff

    Info from people who know PF:
    “He worked on my horses for a real short time till he punched one in the gut with a rasp and that was about the last time I let him work on my horses,” -MG

    'It's a characteristic that was ongoing for years. Anytime he was at a rope and his horse didn't act right, he'd rip on his face, kick him. In the community, we were all at ropings and stuff, but if the horse doesn't do exactly what it's supposed to do you don't just beat them.' -MG

    'One time we were at a rodeo in Cripple Creek and he got mad because his horse didn't do good and somebody didn't heel just right to help him get in the money and he got so mad he left out of Cripple Creek Rodeo, flipped his horse trailer with his horse in it and almost killed that horse.
    'He got mad, tries to get his vehicle out of there and there's too many cars tightly packed in. Lots of people were there. -MG

    'He was in a rage of being mad and angry, because the heeler didn't heel and they lost out the money. It was kind of a sad deal, especially trying to get the horse out that was traumatic for everybody.' -MG

    A former girlfriend of PF declined to speak to the press but her partner commented saying that he knew Frazee to be aggressive with horses and dogs but that he did not beat his girlfriends.
    “He cheated on her while she was in the hospital, take that for what it’s worth,” the man said of his current partner’s former relationship with Frazee

    'Patrick is a horseshoer, I heard once he was thumping on the horse "saying this is how you've got to do it," that horse reared up and kicked him right in the forehead, he got a bunch of stitches and his [then] girlfriend hauled him to the hospital to get stitches.' -High School Classmate of PF

    'Oh yeah, he's a recluse for sure. I haven't seen him in 10 years or so.' -High School Classmate of PF

    A neighbor heard 'mixed things' about Frazee's alleged rough behavior with animals.
    He was quiet and shy. He had his own friends circle and stayed close to his friends,' he said.
    'He did come across, "I'm a big tough cowboy." But that's that cowboy way, got be strong.
    'That's how he was raised, he raised horses. I think if you're raised country that's normal, if you're raised city it's going to seem harsh. It's not wrong in his eyes. Sometimes there's neglect and over abuse yes, he'd tread the fine line on it I'd say. You've got make a horse submit to what you want to do. You've got to be kind of firm. You shouldn't hit them.' --Former Neighbor HF

    Two friends of Patrick defended him and rejected any suggestion he was cruel towards animals:

    'He's an old fashioned cowboy. He's just old school, he does things the old way. He shoes horses modern, but he trains horses the way people used to do it, I wouldn't say that he's cruel or not. He's a stand up real good guy. I've just known him for years and he's a great person.'
    The friend said he had not met Frazee's fiancée but added: 'I know the day I saw him he was a great dad to the daughter and he's a good guy. He was fine. --Man who saw PF shoe horses in Sept.

    'I know him, when we had horses he used to trim our horses hooves. He was a very nice young man, I knew him all growing up, we used to go to the Gymkhana and the rodeos when he was younger. I've known him since 2003 and I never saw him do anything inappropriate or out of order.' -DR, runs the propane store

    "I've always considered him to be a gentle soul. Soft spoken and just really down to Earth and practical." “couldn’t imagine him doing anything that would harm anyone.” -Friend, SO

    Relationship info reported by others:

    KB and PF met online according to her cousin
    PF helped KB move from WA to CO only months after they met
    KB told her cousin she was happy when she moved to be near PF
    KB often talked about her boyfriend (PF) at her aviation job in 2016
    Baby K was born Oct 2017
    They were engaged but did not have a wedding date set
    They have never lived together -- KB's mom

    "The relationship has been good, um, they're loving, um it hasn't been ideal, you know given given the economy and things, you know, they had plans that haven't worked out as they would have liked but they've dealt with that and they've made things work regardless." --KB's mom

    "I mean they had plans, you know, they were planning to find a place for them to live and so forth and the economy with prices dropping out...Kelsey's fiance has some cattle and stuff and prices were poor and so the money just wasn't available as soon as they had hoped, but they make it work."-- KB's mom

    There were no records of any domestic issues between the couple --Woodland Police Chief Miles De Young

    “Like most relationships it has ups and downs but for the most part it's a good relationship,” -Frazee’s lawyer

    KB's parents were skeptical of Frazee from the start, describing him as an "odd duck" --close friend of the family from church

    Misc Info

    PF also owns a red truck
    Neighbor AG gave KB a baby gate the week before Thanksgiving

    On December 22 TFPD issued a statement. In there they say (search warrants had already been issued, and they are still helping with "processing"). My question is: when were they issued, on which previous day?

    That's a good question. I'm not sure when they were issued and with the consistently poor reporting on this case it's hard to say.

    Bringing @jilianelaine's very interesting (IMO!) post from the previous thread (replying to the video interview where CB talks about the Christmas tree:

    Maybe her family knew the relationship wasn’t going well already and the interviews her mother gave were ‘pro Patrick’ ‘pro good relationship’ as directed by LE to keep PF thinking he was safe for the time being- all in order to help protect the baby while they worked behind the scenes to nab him and bring the baby to safety. She may have woven those interviews to do just that, so what she DID say might be meaningless rather than clues to decipher. Maybe they didn’t want people trying to figure out the case for the same reason- to not put heat on him while LE tried to arrest him and get the baby out.

    I agree. We see this all the time. Rather than speaking from the heart, they are speaking from script.
    Again......Sharon Rocha. If the suspect is at large, in possession of minor kids, the last thing anyone needs to do
    Is pee him off. If he’s already killed, there’s nothing keeping him from doing so again.

    I think the family knew that he was the suspect and LE was focusing all of their work on getting him from early in the case. Mothers interviews were a script, I agree.

    Bringing this over from the other thread:


    About 2:10 the reporter asks: "When you talked to her most recently, what has she said, what has she been like?"
    CB: "She's been happy. She's been wanting to decorate for Christmas and excited about that but she thought that maybe her fiance and K* were planning to get the Christmas tree themselves and so she was holding off on buying something. She was planning her Christmas list and calling people wanting to know what was on their list for Christmas. Her job was going well.. Yeah, I just don't see any issues in her life at this time."

    *Baby's name redacted by me

    Yes, I think the tree talk means nothing. The point of sharing it was to show how she was happy and things were normal. Many people don't start to decorate for Christmas until after Thanksgiving. Talking about decorations and a tree is normal Thanksgiving day conversation between an adult daughter and her mother who live in different states and have their own homes. She doesn't even mention that there were any plans to get a tree that day or that weekend-- which is what the theory has turned into.

    The only thing I'm willing to read into this is that maybe Kelsey had been asking PF about when he wanted to get a tree and perhaps he had been hemming and hawing and not answering because he had already planned to murder her. She might have thought he was going to surprise her and show up with a tree. I bet he also didn't buy her any Christmas gifts this year-- which would be pretty telling. He knew she wasn't coming back when she was "missing". And if he knew he was going to murder her in advance of when he did, then he wasn't going to include her in any future Christmas plans. MOO.

    I think she relayed normal life going on’s of Kelsey but changed the true storyline to make it appear all was well. I think the tree story is just another one of them. But who knows, maybe they were still interacting that way as co-parents for the baby. We don’t know if they had officially broken up or not also. But I believe her mom knew the relationship wasn’t good at that point.

    Another thought. Since they didn't live together, there were two households. If PF wanted to take the baby to get a tree (for the fun experience for her), he could have done so by getting a tree for his own household, and KB didn't need to hold off on getting one for her home.

    Might mean nothing, but it makes the comment by mom about the tree a bit less believable, IMO.

    Local paper in Idaho indicates phone was found, "Her mother, Cheryl, lives in Laclede, Idaho, 580 miles north of Gooding, but police have not explained whether that has any significance in where the cellphone was discovered." This article was published on 12/23 which weighs heavily on the timeframes of the warrants.

    I wondered if there was any helicopter video of the area dug up by the backhoe before it was dug up. In the youtube video by SKY9, as the search warrant is unfolding, at the 1:42 minute of the video, it looks as if there is a mound of dirt where the digging took place: (Raw: SKY9 shows police searching home of Kelsey Berreth's fiance')

    Yes, I never got the impression there were any definite plans to get a tree, and certainly not together as a "family." Jmo

    Because the reporting has been so poor in this case I hesitate to put anything in the timeline that hasn’t been stated directly by LE.
