More information about Patrick Frazee, the man charged with murdering missing Colorado mom Kelsey Berreth, is being shared by his former girlfriend, Vanessa Curie. Vanessa and her mother Georgia told Dateline NBC about their relationship with Frazee.
In the interview, Georgia spoke about how her daughter felt about Frazee saying, “She said she loved him, but she hated him, and she feared him.”
Georgia went on to say that it was like Frazee had a “crazy” spell on her daughter. “He was very charming at first,” she said. “And then he confides in her. She’d always say he was this little boy in a man’s body… And then when he know he’d have her, he’d spin this mental cruelty web around her to the point where she almost thought about suicide one weekend.”
Georgia told Dateline that she thinks that Frazee would “capitalize” on her daughter Vanessa’s nurturing and loving side, blaming a “bad childhood” for his behavior.
Vanessa and her mother Georgia will appear in a “Dateline NBC” episode “The Vanishing of Kelsey Berreth” on Friday at 10 p.m. EST. In the special, Vanessa and her mother will discuss her relationship with Frazee, which lasted for about three years.
The broadcast will also feature a friend of Frazee, Clinton Cline. Cline believes that Frazee is innocent for the murder of Berreth. Berreth’s cousin, JoDee Garretson, will also speak out about the case for the first time since the preliminary hearing that was held in February.
The Dateline feature will also include interviews with Laura Stutzman, who was a close acquaintance of Krystal Lee Kenney, the Idaho nurse that was allegedly involved in a relationship with Frazee and charged with evidence tampering of Berreth’s phone.
Kenney has entered into a plea deal for the charges in exchange for her testimony against Frazee. Frazee has yet to enter a plea in the case.
