  • A Woman in North Carolina bought $30 freezer from her neighbour’s garage sale 
  • The seller asked the woman not to open it as it was being used as a “time capsule”
  • Police has confirmed that human remains were found inside the freezer

Goldsboro, N.C., June 1,2016: A woman in North Carolina bought $30 freezer from her neighbor’s garage sale and chill ran down her spine when she found dead body parts inside it.

The woman from Goldsboro, North Carolina was in utter shock when she looked into the freezer. She said “I was just in shock. I opened it up for a second time and my heart went into my throat. I ran out of the house and called 911.”

According to The WNCN, the buyer did not open the freezer for 3 weeks and when she did, women found the dead body parts of human inside it. The woman did not open it immediately as the seller had told her that it was being used as a “time capsule”.

The seller of the freezer told the women that it was a part the project she was doing with her church school class and that people from church will come and pick the freezer’s contents. But they never came, so the women opened it and believes she found her neighbour’s dead mother.

“She sold me her frozen mother for $30. How do you do something like that??” the woman said.

Goldsboro Police confirmed that human remains were found.

When police asked the women about the seller she said, “(She was) Just the sweetest lady. I mean quiet, kept to herself, stayed at home. Just unbelievable how she could just stick her mom in a freezer.”

The freezer seller has reportedly left the town after the sale, claiming she is headed to West Virginia to take care of her mother. Currently, police are investigating this incident as felony concealing or failing to notify the death of a person.

USA, Shutdown

The partial shutdown of the US federal government has had a serious impact on the country’s space agency NASA and development work on most future space missions has been slowed or suspended.

However, NASA has not been totally grounded by the partial government shutdown that began on December 22, after last-minute negotiations in Congress failed to end a budget standoff.

Over 95 per cent of the space agency’s employees have been furloughed. As a result, various research projects, including the Hubble Space Telescope has been put on hold, the Space.com reported on Wednesday.

Hubble suffered a mechanical problem that only furloughed NASA employees could repair.

Many workers also gathered outside the Johnson Space Center in Houston to protest the shutdown and its deleterious effects on their lives and the nation’s space programmes.

The Telescope facilities that have so far remained open during the shutdown will soon run out of money and cease operations.

This includes the National Radio Astronomy Observatory (NRAO), a federally funded organization that operates the Atacama Large Millimeter Array (ALMA), the Green Bank Telescope and the Very Large Array (VLA), the report noted.

The partial shutdown become the longest on record after January 12, overtaking the previous record of the 21-day impasse in 1995-96 under then President Bill Clinton.

US shutdown delays space missions but NASA not grounded: Report,

President Donald Trump and the Congress have been at loggerheads over his demand to include in the budget $5.7 billion funding for building a border wall along the Mexico border. Democratic leaders have rejected his call.

NASA’s Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy (SOFIA), also called the “flying telescope” has also ceased operations since the shutdown.

The telescope, which is mounted to the fuselage of a Boeing 747 aircraft, has not flown since the shutdown began, the report said.

However, despite the shutdown some “excepted” employees remained at work, assisting astronauts aboard the International Space Station (ISS) and other space missions, the report said.

Last week, astronauts aboard the ISS conducted a range of scientific experiments and public-outreach work. They engaged in an orbital Q&A with school kids and answered a variety of questions, from the nature of the research performed aboard the ISS to the type of training astronauts receive to whether your ears pop in space.

On January 13, a SpaceX Dragon cargo capsule departed the orbiting lab for Earth, eventually splashing down in the Pacific Ocean. The robotic Dragon brought down important scientific research and hardware for examination here on terra firma.
