A spokesperson for the 4th Judicial District Court confirms Krystal Lee will be in court Friday, in Teller County, Colorado. Lee is scheduled to appear in court at 8:30 a.m. According to a tweet sent out Monday evening, she faces one count of Tampering with Physical Evidence, a Class 6 Felony.

Court records indicate "between Nov. 24 and Nov. 25 Krystal Jean Lee Kenney, believing that an official proceeding was pending or about to be instituted, and acting without legal right or authority, unlawfully and feloniously destroyed, mutilated, concealed, removed or altered physical evidence with intent to impair its verity or availability in the pending or prospective official proceeding."

However, officials would not give any more information, saying the case is sealed.

A St. Luke's Magic Valley spokesperson confirmed Monday with KMVT that Lee is no longer employed.

KMVT was the first to reveal Krystal Lee to the nation, when a local attorney and his wife came forward with information and called the FBI.
Joe and Patty Rockstahl talked with KMVT, and later CBS News, and since that interview, KMVT has learned others have come forward with information for the FBI.

However, one of those contacts won't talk with KMVT, as they have been silenced by the FBI. An Idaho connection to the case first began when Kelsey Berreth's cell phone pinged in Idaho.

Berreth's fiancé, Patrick Frazee, is accused of killing her. According to KMVT’s interview with the Rockstahls, Lee is a friend to Frazee and traveled to his house sometime in November.

Officials have not confirmed Lee's involvement with the case. In fact, few details on why Frazee was arrested have been released to the public. The body of Kelsey Berreth still has not been found. Authorities in Colorado and Idaho are working together to solve the case.
