Prospective buyers find human remains in freezer while inspecting vacant house


The discovery of a body on a Warrington Township property has prompted an investigation by State Police.

According to an Affidavit of Probable Cause, two people were inspecting a property at 40 Kralltown Road on Feb. 7 to potentially buy it from Fannie Mae, the current owner.

While inspecting a building on the property, the pair checked inside a white chest freezer, where they discovered skeletal remains in black trash bags, according to the document.

Troopers arrived at the property and determined the remains were human.

Investigators determined the previous owner of the property currently lives in York Haven Borough.

Police initiated a traffic stop on the woman and interviewed her at PSP York, where she related that she was owned the property prior to foreclosure.

According to the documents, she also said she owned the freezer and knew where it was locked and unplugged.

The document says the woman cared for her grandmother while she lived at 40 Kralltown Road.

The grandmother, a possible victim in the case, paid financial compensation to the previous owner for her care, according to the affidavit.

According to the documents, investigators believe that the previous owner continued to receive financial compensation from her grandmother after her death.

Police say the previous owner didn't acknowledge the death and believed she might still be alive.

No charges have been filed in this case.
