Patrick Frazee found guilty of killing missing fiancee Kelsey Berreth
Patrick Frazee was accused of killing Kelsey Berreth on Thanksgiving Day 2018. As the trial of Frazee came to a close, prosecutors Monday described the case as a "deliberate, premeditated, cold and cruel murder.
When Boston police searched the penthouse where two doctors were slain, they discovered photographs of one of the victims, Richard Field, had been defaced and that someone had scrawled an accusation against the anesthesiologist on a wall lined with photos.
In all capital letters and in inks of varying colors, someone had written “HE KILLED MY WIFE” and the word, “payback,’’ Sergeant Detective Edward Meade testified Wednesday in the double murder trial of Bampumim Teixeira in Suffolk Superior Court.

Teixeira allegedly murdered Field, 49, and Field’s fiancé, Dr. Lina Bolaños, 38, inside the couple’s penthouse condo at the Macallen building in South Boston on May 5, 2017, during an attempted robbery. Police found the couple with their throats slashed. Teixeira has pleaded not guilty.
Teixeira, 33, was not married.
Meade was in command of the SWAT officers who responded to the Dorchester Avenue building that night after police were notified that someone was inside the doctors’ condo with a gun.
Prior to Meade’s arrival, Teixeira was shot and wounded by other officers who allegedly discovered him inside the couple’s penthouse and opened fire when they believed he was holding a gun in one hand. When police tackled Teixeira, an officer testified Tuesday, he also told them, “They killed my wife.”
More U.S. children die in mass shootings at home than at school -study
Three out of four U.S. children and teenagers killed in mass shootings over the past decade were victims of domestic violence and generally died in their homes, according to a study released on Thursday by the gun control group Everytown.While the specter of school shootings looms darkly in the minds of American parents who remember massacres in Newtown, Connecticut; Parkland, Florida, and around the country, the group's review of shootings from 2009 through 2018 found that far more children were killed in their own homes.
Teixeira already had been rushed to a hospital when Meade arrived, Meade testified.
Meade testified that his officers first evacuated a woman from the second penthouse unit who told him that bullets had penetrated her wall.
Meade said that he and other SWAT officers then forced their way into the doctors’ unit and sent a K-9 dog in as a scout. “It’s a tactic we use when we don’t know if people are lying in wait to shoot us,’’ Meade said.
The dog did not react to anyone. Meade said officers then went room to room and discovered Field and Bolaños in separate rooms. Both were dead and both had their hands cuffed behind their backs. Both had suffered massive injuries and both were coated with some type of slippery liquid, he said.
While searching the condo, Meade testified he saw that one wall in the unit was covered with photographs of a man and a woman that appeared to have been taken while they were traveling. Several individual photos of Field were defaced with a “mark” and words were written on the wall underneath the line of photos.
Border Wall GoFundMe Declares War on Butterfly ‘Freaks’ and Local Priest
The trash-talking Air Force veteran who shot to fame on the right last year after raising more than $20 million on GoFundMe for a privately funded border wall says he is on a mission to “save” Texas from “illegals”—but some nefarious butterfly aficionados keep getting in his way. Triple-amputee veteran Brian Kolfage, whose group We Build the Wall got a shiny endorsement from the Department of Homeland Security this week, built a portion of the private wall in New Mexico before moving on to the Rio Grande Valley in Texas, which he has claimed is “under siege by cartels, criminals and illegal aliens.
Jurors were shown a photograph of the scene. The markings on photos of Field were red, while the scrawled words appeared to be in varying colors of ink.
Meade said he saw the words, “payback,” “you killed my wife,” and in larger letters underneath the photos, “HE KILLED MY WIFE.”
Teixeira had briefly worked in the building as a concierge in 2016 and had completed a nine-month sentence for two bank robberies just weeks before the murders.
Police were called to the Dorchester Avenue building after a friend received text messages from Field’s cellphone saying there was a gunman in the apartment.
No gun was found at the scene. Police later found a BB gun in a backpack, Teixeira’s lawyer said.

Paul Skalnik has a decadeslong criminal record and may be one of the most prolific jailhouse informants in U.S. history. The state of Florida is planning to execute a man based largely on his word.When Detective John Halliday paid a visit to the Pinellas County Jail on Dec. 4, 1986, his highest-profile murder case was in trouble. Halliday, who was 35 and investigated homicides for the local sheriff’s office, had spent more than a decade policing Pinellas County, a peninsula edged by white-sugar-sand beaches on Florida’s Gulf Coast, west of Tampa. It is a place that outpaces virtually all other counties in the nation in the number of defendants it has sentenced to death.
