    Here are some photos of Heather and a couple more links

    http://www.sheriff.org/apps/missingpersons/details.cfm?casenumber=02-1312-001421

    The missing but not forgotten link says that Heather was last seen in the areas of Hallandale Beach/ Hollywood Florida - there is also a lot of information in the comments regarding POI's, theories, etc. None of it substantiated of course.

    The missing date is actually Nov 21 2013 in the links and her facebook page backs that up with posts up until close to then: https://www.facebook.com/heather.lacey.33

    Well the man JE in whose apartment her body had been kept wasn’t the guy that was rumoured to have killed her (per the comments in the missing but not forgotten link I linked to previously).

    As the news article states, JE wasn’t known to Heather as far as her family were aware. I found records of a couple of cocaine possession and drug paraphernalia charges for him. Maybe they knew each other through that side of her life as it’s been reported heather did struggle with drug problems at times, or perhaps they met via her occasional sex work.

    How sad for heathers family to have this as the resolution. Nobody deserves to have their life to end this way.

    Body found in freezer at Florida warehouse identified as woman missing since 2013

    MARGATE, Fla. – The body of a woman who vanished over five years ago was found inside a freezer at a Florida scrap business last month, the Sun Sentinel reports.

    Business owner Lilian Argueta told the paper that she opened the discarded freezer and screamed after seeing what she thought at first was the body of a “witch or a mannequin.”

    The body belonged to Heather Anne Lacey, a 29-year-old mother of two who was last seen in November, 2013, according to the Sentinel.

    The freezer reportedly belonged to Jonathan Escarzaga, who was found dead in his apartment in February. The manager of the unit reportedly had the appliances sent to the scrap warehouse, where Argueta made the grisly discovery.

    Argueta told the paper that it appeared Lacey’s palms were pointed toward the inside of the door and her legs were drawn up against her body as if she had been trying to push it open.

    It’s not yet clear if Escarzaga and Lacey knew each other.

    Police are withholding full results of an autopsy by the Broward County Medical Examiner’s Office until the investigation into Lacey’s death if finished.

    So the manager of the unit (I'm assuming "unit" means apartment) sent the freezer to the scrap warehouse...without ever opening it?!

    Makes me think the freezer was padlocked or chained shut - and the manager didn't want to deal with the work of opening it. Otherwise, wouldn't most people open the door to the freezer to see what was inside, empty it out, etc?

    Being locked/chained also might explain her position in the freezer - it seems an adult could open a freezer from inside unless it were locked shut. Which means she was alive when put in there and he locked her in?

    JE's life and whereabouts need to be investigated - there could be other victims.

    The article specifically states that it wasn't locked or chained. On another unnamed site folks were also discussing this case and a few people who had done work as movers stated that they would *never* open the fridge as it is highly likely to be full of rotten food and would smell horrific. They would simply seal it up with tape and transport it where they were supposed to transport it. Hard to say anything for sure, but I can see the logic in that thought process.
