She was keeping the freezer plugged in. When she opened it,the first things the woman saw were a green sheet and a bag of kitty litter.Then, her eyes landed on a human foot.
When the Goldsboro, N.C., resident spotted the freezer at her neighbor’s yard sale last month, she thought she was getting a good deal. The neighbor was charging $30 for a deep freezer with a hinged lid — the kind of freezer large enough for someone to climb inside. But the neighbor said there was a caveat, she recalled to WNCN. She couldn’t start using the freezer immediately because the neighbor had promised to lend it out to her church’s Sunday school class for a “time capsule” project. The woman, who has chosen to remain anonymous, says her neighbor told her the church would come to pick up the items inside the freezer, which was sealed shut with duct tape. Afterwards, the buyer was supposed to get the freezer back. So the woman waited. Three weeks passed; the church members never came.
The woman who bought the freezer has a strong and disturbing suspicion that her neighbor dumped her own mother’s dead body inside the freezer. I recognized the foot. It was her mother’s foot.
She called 911. “I have a serious problem,” she told the 911 dispatcher. My neighbor sold me a deep freezer, I just opened it and there’s a body in there. “Your neighbor sold it to you?” the dispatcher asked. “I am freaking out,” she responded, short of breath. “I understand, ma’am,” said the dispatcher. “Your neighbor sold it to you?” “Yes,” she said. The Goldsboro Police Department said in a statement on Wednesday that an autopsy confirmed the freezer indeed contained human remains. The body belonged to a Goldsboro resident, but her identity is being withheld until next of kin can be notified, police said.
The unidentified woman said she bought the freezer from her neighbor, who told her she had been using it as a “time capsule” for a project with her Sunday school class. The church was supposed to come by and pick up items inside the freezer, but no one ever showed up.
I recognized the foot. It was her mother’s foot.
