A Missouri Man Found The Frozen Body Of A Baby In His Late Mother's Freezer
As if losing his mother to cancer wasn’t traumatic enough, Adam Smith was dumbfounded by what he found in the freezer of their shared home a day later. A large shoebox wrapped in plastic was a mainstay of the family freezer throughout all of Smith’s childhood, moving with them from place to place. As a child, Smith believed the layers of wrapping hid a cake topper or perhaps another keepsake of his mother’s.
The Sunday after his mother passed away from lung cancer, 37-year-old Smith grabbed a bottle of water from their home’s freezer before deciding to see exactly what was inside the box. It was an infant wrapped in a pink blanket.
Smith discovered that his mother kept a dead infant wrapped in a blanket inside their freezer through four houses and possibly 50 years time. He called the police, who took the body and have classified the infant as a suspicious death. An autopsy is scheduled to find the cause of death, as Smith remembers seeing no blood or visible trauma in his short interaction with the body.
