3-year-old’s body discovered in freezer of Detroit home; mother arrested

A boy identified by family members as Chase Allen, the 3-year-old whose corpse was entombed in a freezer in the basement of his home

Detroit — When a crew of Detroit cops and a point out baby advocate arrived at a rundown home on the city’s west side Friday early morning to conduct a wellness examine, the female who answered the door acted strangely, law enforcement officials explained.

“She tried out to press the officers away as if there was absolutely nothing going on,” Detroit Law enforcement Main James White claimed. “A little something was not right about the conversation.”

Their suspicions elevated, the officers named for a supervisor and the crew entered the residence. They discovered five small children residing in squalor — and the decomposed human body of one more youngster, assumed to be a 3-year-outdated boy, entombed in a basement freezer.

“This circumstance has stunned me, and stunned our investigators,” White mentioned throughout a Friday push meeting down the road from the crime scene.
