Bodies of 2 children found in freezer in Detroit; mom questioned

Posted: Updated:

DETROIT (AP) — The bodies of two children have been found inside a freezer at a low-income apartment complex on Detroit's east side and their mother is being questioned by police.

Detroit police initially said an adult woman's body was found about 10:45 a.m. Tuesday by 36th District Court officers carrying out an eviction at the Martin Luther King Apartments.

Officer Jennifer Moreno says it was later determined there were two bodies — one male and the other female. They are described as pre-teens or teens.

Their names were not immediately released. Autopsies will be performed by the Wayne County medical examiner's office to determine how they died.

WXYZ-TV reports that two other children, ages 11 and 17, have been taken from the home and placed with protective services.
