Body found in freezer at Maywood apartment
A man allegedly killed his mother and put her body in a freezer in their Maywood residence, then told police about the crime and led them to her remains Friday, authorities said.
Investigators have not confirmed that the body is the man’s mother but said they were led to believe so, said Det. Kathy Gallagher with the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Homicide Bureau. The coroner has yet to identify the body.
About 2:45 p.m., authorities said, a man walked into a Huntington Park police station and said he had murdered someone and that the body was in an apartment in the 5600 block of Maywood Avenue.
The investigation is continuing, Gallagher said.
