(Newser) – They make for grim reading. Police in Colorado have released more than 20 warrants related to the murder charges against Patrick Frazee in the death of fiancee Kelsey Berreth, 29. They reveal how authorities zeroed in on the 32-year-old Frazee as a suspect, in part because of "several inconsistencies between the information that Patrick initially gave officers and information obtained during the investigation," per the Denver Channel. The details:

  • The allegations: Police say Frazee beat Berreth to death with a baseball bat in her apartment on Nov. 22, then got a woman he was having an affair with—Idaho nurse Krystal Lee Kenney—to help clean up the crime scene. Kenney, who told police that Frazee had tried to pressure her into killing Berreth, is cooperating with investigators. Berreth's body remains missing.
  • The evidence: The warrants show that police found a "floral fitted sheet with possible blood" in Frazee's home. More gruesomely, they found an envelope with four teeth and a second envelope with a single tooth. The latter may have been one that Kenney said Frazee specifically asked her to look for, telling her it had fallen down an air vent in the attack, reports the Denver Post.
