WDIV in Detroit says it happened at a home on Monte Vista Street, just south of I-96 and east of Grand River Avenue. The discovery was made Friday morning in a home on the city’s west side, when Detroit police officers and a representative from Children’s Protective Services did a wellness check.
It’s currently not known how long the child was in the freezer, but reports indicate the body was decomposing when discovered. A 30-year-old woman is in police custody.
Investigators said they plan to interview other children from the home to determine whether they knew their brother’s body was in the freezer.
