This is one of the most bizarre and heartbreaking stories you’ll read this week.
A St. Louis man made a morbid discovery at his family’s apartment over the weekend.
According to Fox 2, Adam Smith’s mother had just died and he decided to open a box that had been wrapped up in the family freezer since he was a child. His mother always told him it was none of his business so he left the object alone.
I’m 37 and it has been in my freezer for 37 years and I was always told it was a wedding cake top,” Smith told KSDK. “It turns out it was a baby.”
On Saturday, he was deeply disturbed to find out what was inside.
“There was a pink blanket — baby blanket — and when I reached down and touched it, I could feel a foot,” said Smith. “I could see the baby’s head with hair. The hair was still attached.”
Police are now investigating what they consider to be a suspicious death.
