Court officers carrying out eviction find woman's body in freezer in Detroit apartment

A woman's frozen body has been found inside a freezer at a vacant apartment on Detroit's east side.

Detroit police officer Jennifer Moreno says 36th District Court officers found the body during an eviction about 10:45 a.m. Tuesday.

Moreno says the officers found the body in the freezer and that the woman appeared to have suffered some trauma. She didn't elaborate.

The woman was aged somewhere between 45 and 50 years, but hasn't been identified. An autopsy will be performed by the Wayne County medical examiner's office.

The home is in the Martin Luther King Apartments just east of downtown. No one appears to be currently living in the unit where the body was found.

Several dozen people were arrested during a 2013 police raid at the apartment complex.
