GOLDSBORO, N.C. (AP) — Police in North Carolina are looking for a North Carolina woman after authorities say her mother’s body was found in a freezer that she sold in a yard sale.
Media outlets reported that 56-year-old Marcella Jean Lee of Goldsboro is being sought on a charge of failure to report the death.
An autopsy revealed no signs of foul play in the death of 75-year-old Arma Ann Roush, who lived with her daughter. Roush was last seen in August.
Police said a neighbor bought the freezer from Lee for $30. It was taped shut and Lee apparently told the neighbor that church members would come by to pick up items in the freezer.
The neighbor said no one showed up. She opened the freezer last week and discovered the body.
