Just another reason NOT to watch the local news
Think there might be anything interesting in there?
A frozen human body was found Monday evening by two people cleaning out the home of a deceased relative.
According to a news release from the Eddy County Sheriff, the body was discovered around 7:50 p.m. in a chest-type freezer. The remains were first thought to be those of an animal, but after further inspection were determined to be human remains.
The two loaded the freezer into a pickup and drove it to the offices of the Carlsbad Police Department.
After further investigation, the case was turned over to the sheriff’s department because the body had been located outside the city limits…
Although the sheriff’s department has not released the name of the victim, a source close to the investigation has said it may be the husband of the home’s deceased occupant. The man reportedly went missing in 1997.
News from downstate usually doesn’t get much traffic in central or northern New Mexico. When there’s real “human interest” like this – well, it gets more play than UFOs or the latest lawsuit by someone whose neighbor’s wifi network makes their brain buzz.
