The body of an elderly Goldsboro woman was found inside a chest freezer a neighbor said she purchased for $30 from a yard sale last month.
The woman who purchased the freezer, who wanted to remain anonymous, said the seller told her the items inside the freezer were for a Sunday school project and that the church would pick them up. She said three weeks later, no one had come by.
"Nothing was adding up, so I started to become suspicious about it," she said.
The freezer was plugged in and sitting in the woman's spare bedroom when she decided to open it. She said she saw a frozen foot.
"I was just in shock," she said. "I opened it up for a second time and my heart went into my throat. I ran out of the house and called 911."
