    Just MOO but I highly doubt PF's attorney wants him on the stand. I imagine he would advise against it. I think with what they know, planting reasonable doubt is the only reasonable angle to pursue.

    I see what you mean, but I still don't see him testifying. I see him going to prison as an "innocent" man, wrongly convicted for something someone else did and appealing his conviction "until the cows come home," (Forgive me, I just couldn't resist :)) I just don't see him ever admitting what he did.

    I'm sure the attorney is likely to advise against it, but it wouldn't be the first time a client thought s/he knew more than the attorney.

    I can only hope.

    Looking at this picture I’m trying to imagine SF walking on the porch as stated and watching. That’s a pretty thick tree line I don’t think Ma could have seen much unless she walked out to the burn site unless the trees bottom branches are up pretty high. Jmo

    The police did not discover the ring until KKL guided them to the location out on the walk-through of December 21st, just after PF's arrest. IMO

    Yeah its real dry where I am at and a lot of days, we have typical 10-15 MPH gusts in the midwest so it gets windy where I am at and if I dont have a lot of tree limbs to burn then I typically use the 55 gallon drum. But when I have a lot of wood to burn like entire dead trees that have fallen then I just do them on the ground in one spot where it is pretty open and I wait till a day where the wind forecast is going to be really low winds.

    I check the wind forecast here almost as much as i do the weather forecast it seems like. LOL

    The hardest part is chainsawing all the wood up and hauling it to my burn spots. Its too wooded to do it where the dead trees fall.

    One would think that with a severe limp and a cane, she wouldn't have risked falling by leaving the porch. I imagine that she saw it was PF and he seemed to be in scontrol. For all we know, he might have been in the regular habit of starting fires. IMO

    Something I don't understand about burning the tote. If it's heavy duty plastic, wouldn't that take a long time to burn through enough for a body inside to also burn?
    Maybe the tote lid was open or removed.

    It just doesn't make a lot of sense to me to burn a body encased in heavy duty plastic. It had to have taken many hours.

    Just my opinion as I really have no idea.

    Sorry Kelsey.

    That is bazaar as well. Why pay for phones and have your own? Why have knowledge of protective coverings but leave blood in the shower? Why admit to the U.S. government this is your monthly habit of driving down to kill someone? Poor Darwin gets blamed for everything. This is why the apes don't claim us.

    KK is scared about a few things, one of them is the metal rod or pipe with her fingerprints on it. That's why she claims to have left it at the gate of the Franchette. What I find comical here is that she was locked out at the gate, couldn't even enter as though she was stalking not only KB but also PF.

    I don't know if any of this is true but it is all certainly dumb. The longer you think on all the things KKL say they attempted and schemed, the more incredulous the whole plot becomes. It was just a matter of months before the child would start to show a will of her own. Terrible two's are just the beginning of independence.

    Yes and I cringe to think about PF's manner of parenting and
    SF's also.
    There would have eventually been fireworks w/ KB if she
    were informed of how the baby was really taken care of.
    imo.

    If the bonfire was in the steel trough, why were the tiny plastic balls in the dirt? I mean, if you are guilty of something more than burning some household/ranch trash, something like murder, aren't you going to be careful about not spilling the burn remains in the dirt? But if it was an ordinary burn task, you might just mix soil to quench the fire, and dump it on the ground when it cooled, an ordinary burn pit area.

    ETA: I don't believe KK. I don't see that finding little melted plastic balls in the dirt is proof of anything other than a burn pit at any point in time. KK may have had knowledge that PF does these trash burns.

    In order to save space on the threads and to save me time from posting the timeline I'm making the timeline 3 parts. I will post Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3 shortly. However, going forward I'll only be posting a part of the timeline if that part has been updated or changed. The timeline will still be at the beginning of each thread, they'll just be in 3 parts instead of 2 parts. I hope that makes sense. :)

    ITA. Their search warrant was executed Fri-Sat-Sun 12/14-15-16, the property released back to SF slightly earlier than expected. LE must have seen the burn spot but did not consider it suspicious?

    • Slater says KK & PF reconnected in Oct. 2017 talking about a fundraiser.

    • She says PF gave her a metal pipe and told her to hit KB in the back of the head and throw her body in the trash
    • PF told KK "It's not that hard" when referring to hitting KB. Slater says KK was told by PF to hit KB in the back of the head, because there wouldn’t be a lot of blood.

    October 23, 2018 - Tuesday
    • Slater says KK came back around a week after the Oct. 15 incident. She brought a bat from home, parked outside KB’s home & waited. KK realized she couldn’t do it, left the property and says she drove past KB to PF’s residence.
    • Slater says KK saw PF as being angry again. “If you can’t do it, I’m gonna have to,” Slater says (which he’s attributing to PF). Slater thought that was around Oct. 23.

Slater says, per CB, KB didn’t talk about relationship problems.
    • CB told Slater there was another conversation at 9:17 a.m. with Kelsey. Slater says that conversation was about Christmas plans. Nothing about visiting family in Washington state or Idaho though.
    • CB told Slater on the evening of Nov. 22, CB says she received texts from KB’s phone that she got her gun back & felt safe now with PF.
    • KB was last seen on the Safeway surveillance video about 12:27 p.m. KB’s purchased items for dip and flowers at Safeway. KB was next seen in her car on surveillance video from Williams Bros Furniture, at 12:37 approaching her townhome.
    • Between 12:54 p.m. - 1:17 p.m. PF was seen on Walmart & Williams Furniture Store surveillance, and on Arlo camera by KB’s neighbor caught KB, baby K and PF at KB’s door at 1:34 p.m.
    • Adams: another surveillance video showing PF at KB’s residence at 3:36 p.m.
    • Slater said KK told him PF contacted her, and she knew that he had killed KB.
    • Courtroom testimony from CBI agent: KK says PF told her that he covered KB’s eyes with a sweater for a guessing game to guess candle scents. PF used a bat to assault KB, beating her and kill her.
    • Slater: KK says PF put KB in a black tote and set that on the ground near the green Toyota before putting it in the back of his truck & transporting her remains to Nash Ranch in Fremont County, CO. PF placed the black tote that KB’s body was in on top of haystacks in a barn at Nash Ranch.

    • The murder, according to KK (through PF), happened in a back office/second bedroom.
    • According to testimony PF left the murder scene and then went to have Thanksgiving dinner with his family. Later, he allegedly returned to collect KB’s body and burned it.
    • PF went to Thanksgiving dinner with his family that same night, according to Slater’s testimony.
    • Slater says PF put KB’s body in black bag in truck — and drove to celebrate Thanksgiving with family.
    • Phone records show 12:30 both PF and KB’s phones show location at KB’s apartment. Both phones were traveling together later that day. Later that evening phone towers showed both phones together again
    • Then later that evening, Adams says the phones were together and pinged west of Cripple Creek. Adams says PF called KK and his mother SF on Nov. 22.
    • Agents found PF called his mother on Nov. 22 around 4:24 p.m. They determined his phone pinged off a tower near KBs townhome, heading west from there.
    • Adams wrote search warrants for both KB and PF’s phones to Verizon. He says there were a few phone calls between the phones on Nov. 22. Adams says cell tower data showed they were in the vicinity of KB’s townhome. Later that day, they pinged near Divide.
    • Phone records show KB’s phone and PF’s phone were together the entire day on Nov 22. Records show both phones move west, go off the grid, come back on at a later time. The phones are shown heading toward Cripple Creek. They go dark once again.
    • Slater says it’s his understanding that KB’s phone was in close proximity to PF’s phone. They were moving west from Woodland Park toward Divide, then later that night toward Florissant & Cripple Creek.
    • 4:37 pm Nov. 22, PF called an Idaho number. Slater says PF’s phone pinged off a tower in Divide, CO, when he made that call. Shortly after, PF received a return call from that number and his phone pinged in vicinity of KB’s home, it hit off a tower, southwest of KB’s townhome. Reporter Sam Kraemer, who was present at the hearing, understood Slater's testimony to mean that KK was in Idaho on November 22, the day KB was murdered. Sam (Kraemer Retweeted **********KK was in Idaho on Thanksgiving, swapped cars with her best friend the next day & drove to CO. She can't talk to the press, per her plea deal. Not sure why SF is pleading the 5th & why PF was with his brother. KK says she left her phone on for police to find her.)
    • Referencing the Idaho number belonged to KK, state asks if PF contacting that number became important, knowing that was near the last ping of KB’s phone. Slater said yes, then they tried contacting her.
    • CBI agent testified that at 4:24 p.m. on Nov. 22 PF’s phone called his mother. At 4:37 p.m. it called KK. Cell towers show he was southwest of KB‘s home.
    • Adams says he also recovered video of PF at the drive through of Ent Credit Union. He says he couldn’t see the baby in the truck, but did see a baby carrier.
    • Two more exhibits from the state. First is a still of PF on the surveillance at the bank showing him. Second shows the back of his truck, with a black tote in it. He says they learned that tote played a big role in what happened to KB
    • Adams says he talked to PF’s brother, a Colorado Springs police officer as part of the investigation. Sean (unsure of spelling) says he saw PF on Nov. 22 & didn’t describe anything as suspicious that day. It doesn’t say exactly when PF arrived for Thanksgiving. Sean says he got there around 2:30 p.m., and that PF arrived a little later. He had baby K with him. Defense says PF’s brother would be aware of things out of the ordinary. since he is a CO Springs police officer. Prosecution says Sean and Patrick have estranged relationship.
    • KK spoke with PF at 4:30 p.m. PF texted KK asking for her to call him. PF eventually called KK, saying, she had to get to CO because she had a mess to clean up. KK interpreted that as KB was dead. Cell phone records support this cell phone conversation.
    • KK said she couldn’t come out right away, realizing what happened. Slater says PF said, “Just f***ing talk.” He made it clear to KK that she needed to bring things with her to “clean up”.
    • Slater says PF told KK,“You don’t know how hard it was to have Thanksgiving dinner after killing her. “
    • PF originally, took KB’s body from her residence, and stored it in a black plastic tote with silver handles at the Nash Ranch on the 22nd of November. The tote was stored in a barn on top of a hay stack at the ranch, and PF used a tractor to put the tote up high.
    • Between the hours of 1:00 a.m. and 4:00 a.m., there were approximately ten contacts between KB’s cell phone and PF’s cell phones, one of which was an approximate four minute phone call at or about 1:42 a.m.
    • Video surveillance from the Safeway in WP, CO showed KB and Baby K shopping at the store. It appeared she departed the grocery store at approximately 12:27 p.m. Investigators located receipts from Safeway in the residence and vehicle that corroborate this information.
    • The analysis of the cell phone data revealed that KB and PF cellular phones connected to the same Verizon tower in WP at 12:23 p.m when KB missed a call from PF at 12:31 p.m.
    • Between 12:54 p.m. - 1:17 p.m. PF is captured on surveillance footage at a Walmart in WP, CO with a baby carrier with similar blankets as seen in the Safeway footage. Although, Baby K can’t be clearly seen in the footage, it is likely she was in the baby carrier.
    • At Approximately 1:24 p.m. an individual that matched the physical description of PF is captured on a neighbor’s surveillance camera entering the front door of KB’s residence. The photograph contradicts PF’s timeline provided to investigators.
    • The same residential surveillance camera captured an individual that matches the physical description of PF at KB’s residence at or about 3:36 p.m. It is noted that around this time. PF’s phone records indicated that he called his mother and KK.
    • Nov. 22, 2018 - The analysis of the cell phone data revealed that KB and PF cellular phones connected to the same Verizon tower in WP at 12:23 p.m when KB missed a call from PF at 12:31 p.m.
    • Nov. 22, 2018 - Both KB and PF’s phones were seen by towers near Cripple Creek in the evening, traveling in the same directions and often similar distances from the cell towers hen measurements were captured by the Verizon network. This would indicate the phones were likely together.
    • 1 – 4 a.m.: Investigators found that there were at least seven contacts made between Frazee and Berreth’s cell phones between these hours, including a four-minute phone call that happened around 1:42 a.m.
    • 9 – 10 a.m.: Cell phone records show Berreth text messaged Frazee at 9:37 a.m. and that the two spoke on the phone for about 3 ½ minutes around 9:40 a.m.
    • 12:27 p.m.: Berreth and her daughter are captured on a surveillance camera at the Safeway in Woodland Park leaving the store. Receipts from the store and her home corroborated she was there at that time.
    • 12:31 and 12:33 p.m.: Frazee calls Berreth's cell phone in a 35-second call, and there is an incoming call from Berreth to Frazee listed as 8 seconds in length in the affidavit. The affidavit says that both of their cell phones connected to the same cell tower in Woodland Park
    • 12:41 p.m.: A text message was exchanged between Berreth and Frazee.
    • 12:54 – 1:17 p.m.: Frazee was captured on surveillance video at the Walmart in Woodland Park carrying a baby carrier with a blanket similar to the one seen in the Safeway footage. Investigators wrote in the affidavit that they believe their 1-year-old daughter was in the carrier at the time.
    • Frazee said he met with Berreth in an alleyway outside her home in Woodland Park to exchange the child just beforehand, which investigators said they believe did occur. This is the last time that Frazee reportedly saw Berreth alive, and he told investigators that while they exchanged their daughter, he returned some of her belongings, including a handgun, keys and other items – which have so far not been recovered.
    • 1:24 p.m.: A person matching Frazee’s description is captured entering the front door of Berreth’s apartment on a neighbor’s surveillance camera – which investigators said contradicted what Frazee had told them about a timeline on that day.
    • Afternoon: Investigators believe this is when Frazee allegedly killed Berreth inside her apartment, then took her cell phone when he left. Investigators allege that he blindfolded Berreth and asked her to smell a scented candle, then beat her to death with a baseball bat. They say that Kenney was aware because Frazee told her about it.
    • Cell tower records show that Frazee’s phone was connected to the tower serving Berreth’s apartment from approximately 1 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. that day.
    • 3:36 p.m.: That same neighbor’s surveillance camera again captures images of a person that matches Frazee’s description at Berreth’s home. Frazee called his mother, Sheila, and Kenney at this time, according to his phone records. This is the beginning of when Frazee allegedly started carrying out his “scheme,” as the affidavit calls it, of using his and Berreth’s phones to try and “distract law enforcement, distort the actual date of [Berreth’s] appearance, and separate himself as a suspect in a murder investigation.”
    • Kenney told investigators that Frazee called her and told her to come to Colorado because she “had a mess to clean up.” She told investigators that she understood that meant that Berreth had been killed.
    • Evening hours: Both Frazee’s and Berreth’s cell phones were connected with cell towers near Cripple Creek, traveling in the same direction and similar distances from the towers. “This would indicate the phones were likely traveling together,” Frazee’s affidavit says. The affidavit says the two cell phones stayed together for the entirety of Nov. 22-24.
    • Investigators allege that Frazee removed Berreth’s body from her apartment that day and stored it in a black plastic tote at the Nash Ranch atop a haystack.

    • KK’s cell phone was connected to a cell tower and also to a sector of that tower that would service KB’s residence on the morning of Nov. 24, 2018. The tower is some distance from the PF residence and likely wouldn’t service his residence.
