A man whose body is believed to have been stored in a freezer for as much as 11 years was the husband of a woman who'd recently died.
The body of Paul Edwards Mathers, 69, was discovered on Nov. 22 after officers in the Salt Lake City suburb of Tooele found his wife, Jeanne Souron-Mathers, 75, dead on a bed in their unit at the Remington Park Apartments.
'[The officer was] thinking, "OK, we just need to investigate the death, nothing super suspicious", and calls the detective because that's our protocol,' Tooele City Police sergeant Jeremy Hansen told Fox 13.
'We can look at like food in the fridge, freezers, anything that gives us some sort of a timeline as to when that person actually died.'
An autopsy was not able to narrow down a time frame or how he died. Souron-Mathers had lived in the apartment since 2007.
