MARGATE, Fla. "The body of a woman who disappeared over five years ago was found in a freezer by a Florida scraping operation last month," Sun Sentinel reports.
The business owner Lilian Argueta told the paper she opened the throw freeze and screamed after seeing what she believed in the beginning 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 observed in November, 2013, according to Sentinel.
The freezer belonged to Jonathan Escarzaga, who was found dead in his apartment in February. The head of the unit had reportedly received the devices sent to the scrap warehouse, where Argueta made the pig's sound.
She told the paper that it looked like Lacey's palms pointed to the inside of the door, and her legs were made against her body as if she had been trying to push it open.
It is not yet clear whether Escarzaga and Lacey knew each other.
Police hold back full results from an autopsy of the Broward County Medical Exam's Office for the investigation of her death if it is completed.
