Cold Case: Mom's Body Stuffed In Freezer For 20 Years

(CBS)


London (AP) London police have discovered a woman's corpse in a home freezer 20 years after her death. They're now questioning the woman's 83-year-old daughter.

Britain's Press Association news agency says police searched the home of Daulat Irani 10 days after a neighbour reported that there might be a body in the garage.

Police believe the dead woman, Gulbai Murzdan, died 20 years ago.

They declined to comment on any relationship there might be between the dead woman and the woman being questioned.

The Daily Mirror reported that Murzdan's daughter hid her mother's body in the freezer wrapped in a black trash bag.

The newspaper said Murzdan had been living in the country illegally and that her daughter feared immigration authorities.
