  • 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.

Want to prevent frailty when you grow old? If so, then start maintaining good heart health. A new study indicates that low heart disease risks among older people may help them to prevent frailty.

Frailty is a condition associated with decreased physiological reserve and increased vulnerability to adverse health outcomes. The outcomes include falls, fractures, disability, hospitalisation and institutionalization.

The findings, published in the Journal of Gerontology, found that severe frailty was 85 per cent less likely in those with near ideal cardiovascular risk factors.

The study also found that even small reductions in risk factors helped to reduce frailty as well as dementia, chronic pain and other disabling conditions of old age.

“This study indicates that frailty and other age-related diseases could be prevented and significantly reduced in older adults. Getting our heart risk factors under control could lead to much healthier old ages,” said co-author Joao Delgado from the University of Exeter in Britain.

For the study, the researchers analysed data from more than 421,000 people aged between 60-69. The participants were followed up over 10 years.

The researchers analysed six factors that could impact on heart health. They looked at uncontrolled high blood pressure, cholesterol and glucose levels, plus being overweight, doing little physical activity and being a current smoker.

“Individuals with untreated cardiovascular disease or other common chronic diseases appear to age faster and with more frailty,” the researchers said.

“Now our growing body of scientific evidence on ageing shows what we have previously considered as inevitable might be prevented or delayed through earlier and better recognition and treatment of cardiac disease,” they noted. (IANS)
