An Idaho couple recalled the horrible realization when one of their employees told them of a murder plot that they later realized might have involved missing Colorado mother Kelsey Berreth.

The Twin Falls husband and wife, Joe and Patty Rockstahl, called the FBI after they realized they had pertinent information regarding Berreth’s disappearance.

In an interview with TV station KMVT, the Rockstahls claimed one of their employees, visibly shaken, approached them. The employee explained her best friend, identified as Krystal Lee, allegedly told her that “a man had asked her to kill the mother of his child.”

Patrick Frazee, Berreth’s fiance, has been charged with first-degree murder.

The couple told the unidentified employee to have Lee speak to them but she never did.

The Rockstahls say Lee even told her friend “to forget the whole thing.”

Without enough information and hearing a conversation secondhand, they say they weren’t able to alert the authorities at that time.

“If we could’ve just gotten the police to call or drive by and say, ‘Are you thinking of killing someone?’ that would have stopped it,” said Joe Rockstahl. “We wouldn’t be here. We wouldn’t have all of this going on.”

When asked what made Patty come forward, she said it was when she realized who was involved and watching Berreth’s mother, Cheryl, pleading for help.

“I think the mother that had the courage and go on TV when her daughter was missing, saying that someone knew where she was at,” said Patty. “At that point in my mind, I thought that Patrick, and that was the only name I had heard him called, I didn’t know his last name, had done something to her daughter and he knew where she was at.”
