OGDEN Utah (ABC 4 Utah) – When police first came to the home of the Millerberg’s they denied knowing anything about their babysitter’s disappearance.

In 2011, 16-year old Alexis Rasmussen was last seen at their North Ogden home and then vanished. 38-days later her body was found in a remote site in Morgan County.

Eric Millerberg was charged with her murder, his former wife received lesser charges and even testified against him.

Thursday during court testimony, a North Ogden police detective offered the jury his interview with the Millerberg’s days after Alexis’ disappearance.

Detective Bill Aeschlimann visited the Millerberg’s at their North Ogden home.

“He sounded like he was high on methamphetamines, Aeschlimann testified.

This was part of the interview for the jury:
Eric: “We called her (Alexis) up. My wife did... called her cause I don't like talking. I keep my distance from kids you know what I mean?”

In 2011, Rasmussen was supposed to be babysitting for the Millerbergs. But Wednesday Dea Millerberg testified it turned into a drug and sex party.
It was the night Alexis vanished.
During the interview the Millerberg’s claim Alexis left around midnight.

Dea: "She knocked on the door.”
Eric: “She knocked on our door.”
Both could be heard saying the following: “We were all ... before we went to bed ... and we go down and she goes 'I'm leaving.'"

The Millerbergs claim they have no idea where she disappeared to. They told the detective Alexis was meeting someone near a school.

Eric: "It's not my responsibility and I feel bad something’s going wrong. It's not my responsibility to know where she is at. I'm not going to tell a 16-year old girl ‘you're not leaving my house.’ You know what I'm saying. That's not my responsibility.”
The interview ended with the police asking the Millerbergs to stay in touch especially if they hear from Alexis.
Dea: "Absolutely.”
Eric: “May I have your card?"

And then Dea could be heard telling the detective the following as he was leaving.

Dea: "If I didn't know where my child was I'd be yelling ... cause my sons been like that. He's here and then I'd have to be tracking him."
But weeks later Police found Alexis' body dumped in some grass off of Interstate-84 in Morgan County. Eric Millerberg's friend led police to her body.

That friend turned out to be a prison inmate. He testified in court Thursday afternoon. For security reasons his name was not released. He testified about that incident three years ago when he was out on the streets. The inmate testified that Millererg needed his help because a girl had overdosed at his house.

Alexis’ body was already in a secluded location in Morgan County but allegedly Millerberg wanted to move the body. The inmate agreed and claims they were going to bury Alexis but it was too rocky. So they placed her body in a garbage bag and hid her by some trees and threw a discarded foam mattress over her.
Police returned to Millerberg to interview him a second time.

Detective: "We have her okay?"
Eric: "I don't know what you're talking about."
Detective: "Okay. I'm telling you we've got a lot. We've got a lot."
Eric: "Is she okay?"
Detective: "Don't worry about that. You know the answer. Okay?"
Eric: "No sir."
Detective: "Yeah you do."
Eric: "I don't know what you're talking about."

The interview ended shortly after that exchange. Closing arguments are expected Friday afternoon.
