    CA - Ceres, Male body in freezer at auto shop, Apr'14 - Thomas Kroger

    Police say a property owner made a gruesome discovery Monday: a human body inside a freezer.

    The body was found late Monday afternoon at a warehouse along the 1800 block of Whitmore Avenue. Ceres Police say that a property owner went to inspect a warehouse he had rented to a now-defunct auto body shop.

    Seriously? This is a first, a body in a deep freeze in a warehouse? If I where LE I would look into the people who ran the auto shop or find out if the owner is still around. He could be in the freezer. I can't see that someone else (not affiliated with the auto shop) would go to the elaborate steps of killing someone, getting a deep freezer, putting it in an empty warehouse and think it's not going to be found. The whole thing seems extraordinary and extreme to me.

    Some people may consider me crazy, I say I'm just inspired.

    "lover"

    That should have said "husband."
    Jill can't find last year's taxes either.

    I used to drive on the road where that warehouse is (work commute.) Trust me this story only adds to the creepiness and grime of the area.
