Alleged poison plot, blood in bathroom: Gruesome details revealed in case against fiancé accused of killing Kelsey Berreth

first_imgWoodland Park Police Department(WOODLAND PARK, Colo.) — Prosecutors on Tuesday revealed new details — including blood and an alleged poisoned coffee plot — in the case against Patrick Frazee, the Colorado man accused of killing his fiancé and the mother of his baby.Kelsey Berreth, 29, vanished on Nov. 22, 2018, near her Woodland Park, Colorado, home. Her purse, phone and keys went missing, but no other personal items were gone, prosecutors said Tuesday.Her body has still not been found.Frazee’s ex-girlfriend, Krystal Lee, said Frazee asked her last fall if she would poison Berreth’s favorite Starbucks drink. Frazee claimed Berreth should die because she was an abusive mother, Colorado Bureau of Investigation agent Gregg Slater said Tuesday as he testified for the prosecution at Frazee’s preliminary hearing.Frazee and Lee discussed potential drugs that were easy to access because Lee was a nurse, according to Slater.Lee said she bought a drink and gave it to Berreth, portraying herself as a new neighbor, but she did not put anything in the drink, Slater said.Frazee, 32, who was arrested in December for murder and solicitation to commit murder, has not entered a plea.On Dec. 6, two weeks after the disappearance, Berreth’s mother found blood in her daughter’s bathroom and noticed a missing bathmat, Slater said.Investigators did a luminol test (which detects blood) and found Berreth’s blood DNA profile in her bathroom, including on the toilet, trash can, floor, wall, door, town rack and part of the vanity, Slater said.Frazee’s attorney, however, noted that the blood was found in Berreth’s home by her own family days after cadaver dogs and police investigated the scene.Surveillance and phone evidence were also presented on Tuesday.Cameras from Berreth’s neighbor showed Berreth, Frazee and their baby at Berreth’s front door on Nov. 22, the day she disappeared, said Christopher Adams of the Woodland Park Police Department, who was called by prosecutors at the preliminary hearing.Frazee was seen also seen on surveillance video that day at a Woodland Park credit union drive through, Adams said. A baby carrier was visible in the car passenger seat and a black tote was in the back of the truck bed, Adams said. Prosecutors asked if that tote would play a significant role in what happened to Berreth, and Adams said yes.Prosecutors want Frazee’s mother to testify because they believe she witnessed Frazee destroy that bag.On Nov. 22, Berreth and Frazee’s phones pinged off a tower serving Berreth’s home, Adams testified.The next morning, Frazee called Berreth’s phone. At that time both phones pinged off the tower by Frazee’s home, indicating the phones were together, Adams told the court.Frazee’s attorney, Adam Steigerwald, attacked the phone evidence, asking how many cellphone towers were in the area.Steigerwald also stressed that there were hundreds of tips about sightings of Berreth.Lee, the former girlfriend, admitted in court this month to moving Berreth’s phone.Lee’s phone records showed her in Colorado on Nov. 24, Adams said Tuesday. On Nov. 25 Berreth’s phone traveled west, eventually reaching Idaho, where Lee lives. Records indicate Lee’s phone was traveling with Berreth’s phone, Adams testified.Lee pleaded guilty to one count of tampering with physical evidence.A judge has granted temporary custody of Frazee and Berreth’s 1-year-old daughter to Berreth’s parents, Cheryl and Darrell Berreth. The couple filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Frazee.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

Paul Thomas: Genetic attraction – a love that dare not speak its name

first_imgNZ Herald 15 April 2016Family First Comment: So here’s a good commentary by NZ Herald columnist Paul Thomas rejecting people who argue for Genetic Sexual Attraction which is a poncy term for Incest. But here’s the interesting aspect – the same arguments rejecting incest could also be the basis of arguing against ‘gender’ ideology, same-sex marriage and polygamy. “The evidence that there’s such a thing as GSA is pretty thin…”“This is both self-diagnosis, hardly the most reliable scientific methodology, and self-serving…”“…since when did the scientific community let public opinion influence its areas of research?“…it seems a little reckless to push a “my DNA made me do it” line, even in unusual cases.”Does this make Paul Thomas an ‘incestophobe’?? …..Which brings us to incest or, as we now have to call it in certain cases, Genetic Sexual Attraction (GSA). GSA is the phenomenon of close relatives who meet for the first time as adults and can’t keep their hands off each other. As in Kim West (51) and her son Ben Ford (32) who have just unapologetically outed themselves as a couple. Briton West got pregnant at 19 while studying in California. She put her son up for adoption; 30 years passed. A couple of years ago Ford tracked her down and it was lust at first sight. Three days after they had sex for the first time, Ford told his wife he was leaving her for his mother. According to Charlotte Gill, the writer of a Daily Telegraph article that also appeared in the Herald, GSA is real, more widespread than we think and we’d better get used to it.Call me sceptical. That’s partly personal experience: my family emigrated from the UK when I was two and the best part of three decades elapsed before I met any aunts, uncles or cousins. When I did so, GSA was conspicuous by its absence. Without ever having discussed it with my sisters – for some reason the subject just never came up – I’m pretty sure the same goes for them. The evidence that there’s such a thing as GSA is pretty thin. The term was coined in the 1980s by American Barbara Gonyo who went weak at the knees when she was reunited with the son she’d given up for adoption. This is both self-diagnosis, hardly the most reliable scientific methodology, and self-serving. (Ford told a magazine, “This is not incest, it’s GSA.” Understandably: in Michigan, where he and his mother are shacked up, plain old incest is a crime punishable by life imprisonment.) Gill refers to a single study but glibly skates over the lack of scientific evidence: “There’s not a great deal of research into the area because who wants a PhD in incest?” How about anyone wanting to persuade us that incest has genetic origins?Besides, since when did the scientific community let public opinion influence its areas of research? Each year at Harvard University a committee including Nobel laureates hands out the “Ig Nobels” to scientists engaged in spectacularly frivolous or dubious research. Past winners include a team that explored the viability of a “gay bomb” that would cause enemy troops to become sexually attracted to each other. Gill insists that “those who succumb to GSA are not sickos or freaks but victims who desperately need help and understanding. Their feelings are not controllable.” This characterisation sits uneasily alongside the presentation of West and Ford’s story and their crowing about “incredible and mind-blowing sex”.And given the sordid, coercive and traumatising nature of most incest, it seems a little reckless to push a “my DNA made me do it” line, even in unusual cases. read more
