Meth-fueled Darwin Award – UPDATED

A dead body found rotting in a freezer has Hobbs Police investigating. KOB Eyewitness News 4 talked to neighbors who said they noticed something was wrong.

Officers arrived at the abandoned house Tuesday night after a call about the stench. Neighbors said they could smell it inside their homes.

“It was a really strong stench; really, really strong. I’ve never smelled that before, and I would never want to smell it again ever,” said Camille Franco…

“Upon arrival, they located an unidentified body and the body was sent to Albuquerque for autopsy,” said Officer Mike Stone of the Hobbs Police Department.

Police could not identify the gender or identification of the body, leaving a whole lot of questions and not a lot of answers.

“For somebody to be in a freezer, and I mean for somebody to actually do something like that. No, that scares me, that frightens me. I’m actually really wanting to lock up my house more,” said Franco. “Like they say, you might think you might know your neighbors, but you never know.”

Hobbs police said they are waiting for the autopsy results to figure out the cause of death.

This was published back in September. The final results of the autopsy were published, today. Local newspapers haven’t caught up, yet; so, I don’t know if they identified the body. UPDATE: Everett Willford was his name. 22 years old.

According to 30 seconds of TV coverage, apparently, the dude overdosed on meth. With severe hot flashes, he must have climbed into the freezer to cool off. He didn’t freeze to death. It was the meth that killed him.

Somewhere along the timeline, the power was cut off to the abandoned house. Decomposition followed.
