Man arrested on suspicion of slaying his mother, putting body in freezer
Authorities have arrested an 18-year-old Maywood man on suspicion of killing his mother and stuffing her body into the freezer of his apartment.
Moises Meraz-Espinoza had apparently walked into a Huntington Park police station Friday afternoon and told authorities there that he had killed someone and that the body was still inside an apartment in the 5600 block of Maywood Avenue.
The coroner’s office did not release the identity of the victim, saying she is still known to them as Jane Doe.
Homicide investigators at the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, which is handling the case, confirmed that dismembered body parts were found in the freezer at the suspect’s residence. But they declined to say more, pending the outcome of the investigation.
