Woodland Park, Colorado: Authorities are planning to begin the daunting task of digging through a landfill in the city of Fountain for Kelsey Berreth’s remains next Tuesday, news outlets report.

The search of the Midway Landfill, which could include other possible evidence in the missing mother’s case, could last several months, according to sources with knowledge of the investigation.

The landfill has been the focus of investigators since at least the middle of January, when officials from Waste Management told ABC News that the Colorado Bureau of Investigation had contacted them “regarding a potential search at Midway Landfill and we are cooperating fully.”

Investigators on Tuesday testified in a Teller County courtroom that they believe Patrick Frazee, Berreth’s fiancé and the father of their 1-year-old daughter, burned the body with gasoline at his property in Florissant, based on testimony from Krystal Jean Lee Kenney, a 32-year-old Idaho woman who pleaded guilty to tampering with evidence earlier this month and agreed to cooperate with authorities in the investigation.

Kelsey Berreth murder conspiracy fueled by affair between Patrick Frazee, Idaho nurse, documents say

  • Patrick Frazee tied a sweater around Kelsey Berreth’s face and beat her to death with a bat, Idaho nurse told police
  • Testimony: Idaho nurse claims Patrick Frazee tied sweater around Kelsey Berreth’s face, beat her to death with bat
  • Kelsey Berreth’s parents claim Patrick Frazee killed Berreth over custody dispute, court documents state
  • Idaho nurse believed Patrick Frazee would kill her if she didn’t help cover up Kelsey Berreth murder.
