The moment Colorado killer Patrick Frazee’s girlfriend showed police how he had mopped up the blood of his dead fiancée Kelsey Berreth has emerged, a week after the man was sentenced to life in prison.
Krystal Lee was dating Frazee when he murdered Berreth, the mother of his one-year-old daughter, in Colorado last Thanksgiving.
After beating Berreth to death with a baseball bat, he summoned Lee to Berreth’s home to help him ‘clean up a mess’, she said.
In new video obtained by 48 Hours and shared with CBS This Morning on Friday, Lee is seen walking officers through spots on the walls where there was blood spatter when she arrived.
In the footage, law enforcement agents can be heard asking her: ‘With this broom, can you point to the area where you saw and cleaned blood up on the wall?

Lee admitted evidence tampering and will serve up to three years behind bars. Frazee is in prison for life
Frazee is pictured in his mugshot. He was sentenced to life behind bars last week. The Colorado rancher murdered his fiance Kelsey Berreth with a baseball bat
‘And just hold it there so we can get a picture of that.’
Lee’s voice quivered as she pointed to spots on the by-then clean wall.
Krystal Lee cut a deal with prosecutors and will serve up to three years in prison after pleading guilty to evidence tampering
‘All, it was um, the spray was here all the way. I had to clean up underneath here and it was all down here and um, I know that I didn’t get.. um… there.
‘I don’t know that I got some of it here… I didn’t move the chairs to get it,’ she said.
She mopped it up from top to bottom, she said, leaving a small amount of blood in the hope that it would lead to him being caught.
Lee was given a plea deal for her cooperation and is serving three years behind bars for witness tampering.
After beating Berreth to death, Frazee burned her remains at his own ranch.
Her body was never found.
Frazee’s motive has never been confirmed but in a wrongful death lawsuit filed by Berreth’s family against him, they suggested he was driven by a looming custody battle.
They say they had broken up the day Berreth was murdered and that the pair were expected to fight over custody of their one-year-old daughter.
