GOLDSBORO, N.C. (WNCN) — A North Carolina woman was shocked when she looked into a used freezer she bought and found parts of a dead body inside.

“My heart was in my throat and I ran outside, called 911,” said the woman, who asked that she not be identified.

The woman did allow WNCN TV cameras into her apartment to see where she had kept the deep freezer for the three weeks before opening it and making the gruesome discovery.

The woman said she bought the freezer from her neighbor, but that she didn’t immediately open it because the neighbor told her it was being used as a “time capsule.”

The seller of the freezer said it was part of a class project she was doing with her church’s Sunday School class.

“A church was supposed to come, pick up the items inside the freezer. I was supposed to get the freezer back. The church never came. I decided to open it,” the freezer buyer said.

Police confirmed the human remains were found Friday inside 1723-B Holly Street in Goldsboro.

The woman who discovered it said she believes it was the body of the neighbor’s elderly mother inside the freezer.

“She sold me her frozen mother for $30. How do you do something like that??” the woman said.

The mother had lived with her daughter for years, but hadn’t been seen since September.

“(She was) Just the sweetest lady. I mean quiet, kept to herself, stayed at home. Just unbelievable how she could just stick her mom in a freezer,” the freezer buyer said.

The woman said that the day after she bought the freezer, the neighbor who sold it to her then left town.

The freezer seller said she was headed to West Virginia to be with her mother, who was now staying at a nursing home, the woman who bought the freezer said.

It’s just one of many stories she told people in this tight-knit community, folks said. Stories that many people say just don’t add up.

The human remains were sent to the North Carolina Medical Examiner’s Office for further identification.
