A nurse from Idaho is reportedly being questioned in connection with the Kelsey Berreth case, the Colorado mom who vanished on Thanksgiving and is presumed dead by authorities.
The 32-year-old woman from Twins Falls may have disposed of Berreth’s cell phone, according to ABC News. Her name has not been released and she has not been officially charged with any crime. Her relationship to Berreth, if any, is unclear.
In late December, Berreth’s fiancé Patrick Frazee was arrested and charged with first-degree murder and solicitation of first-degree murder in connection with her disappearance.
Woodland Park Police Chief Miles De Young announced at the time that Berreth, who had a 1-year-old daughter with Frazee, is presumed dead, though her body has yet to be found.
Berreth had last been seen in public on surveillance video shopping at a grocery store in her hometown of Woodland Park, Colorado. Frazee said he also saw her that day when Berreth had dropped off their daughter. Three days after Berreth was last seen, Berreth's phone pinged from Gooding, Idaho, which is 700 miles away from her home, according to East Idaho News. Police confirmed that Berreth’s phone was found in Idaho.
A charging document claimed Frazee was working to find someone to kill Berreth between September and November, according to the Associated Press.
Although police have disclosed that they believe the murder took place at Berreth’s home, they have not publicly discussed a possible motive or speculated on where they believe her remains could be.
Berreth’s daughter is currently in the care of her maternal grandparents.
