The bodies of two children have been found inside a freezer at a home on the eastside of Detroit. Police Chief James Craig confirmed that the bodies of a boy and girl, aged 11 and 15 respectively, were discovered during the morning hours of March 23. ABC News affiliate WXYZ TV reported that the lifeless bodies were found inside a bag. An autopsy is scheduled to determine the exact cause of death.
An officer of the court made the discovery while serving an eviction notice to the home. The mother of the deceased kids is currently in custody and being questioned. She is considered a person of interest. No names have yet been released following the tragedy.
Police also confirmed that the bodies had been in the freezer for more than one year, according to police. Their mother was still residing in the apartment with her other children.
"It appeared to be a male who…is approximately 11 years old and a female (who is approximately) 14 years old inside of a plastic bag," Chief James Craig said. "They appeared to be frozen."
It was following a 2013 police raid at the Martin Luther King Jr. townhome complex that police gradually built up trust with the local community and helped to bring the mother of the deceased into custody.
