GOLDSBORO, N.C. (AP) — Police say they’ve caught up with a North Carolina woman wanted after her mother’s corpse was found in a freezer sold at a yard sale.
Goldsboro Police say 56-year-old Marcella Jean Lee was arrested Thursday in Carolina Beach, 100 miles south of Goldsboro. A police statement said she’d been sought for months on a felony charge of failure to report a death.
An autopsy in June found no signs of foul play in the death of 75-year-old Arma Roush, who lived with Lee and was last seen in 2015.
Police said a neighbor bought Lee’s freezer for $30 last spring. It was taped shut and Lee said friends would collect the contents. The buyer opened the freezer later, finding the remains.
It wasn’t immediately clear if Lee had an attorney.
