Utah man was in freezer 10 years before discovery, left notarized letter behind, police say

 

A man whose body was discovered in a freezer inside a Utah apartment last month is believed to have been dead for a decade and left a note behind stating his wife didn't kill him, according to officials.

 

Authorities were conducting a welfare check on Nov. 22 when they found 75-year-old Jeanne Sourone-Mathers dead inside her apartment of natural causes in the town of Tooele, about 35 miles southwest of Salt Lake City. When police conducted a further search of the apartment, they discovered the body of 69-year-old Paul Edwards Mathers in a freezer.

 

In addition to the body, investigators found a notarized letter signed by Paul Mathers stating his wife did not kill him.

 

“It was notarized on December 2, 2008,” Tooele Police Sgt. Jeremy Hansen told FOX13. “We believe he had a terminal illness.”

 

Police believe that Souron-Mathers, 75, left her husband dead in the freezer sometime between Feb. 4, 2009, and March 8, 2009. Mathers was last seen alive on Feb. 4, 2009, at an appointment at the Veterans Affairs hospital.

 

The person who notarized the letter in 2008 has been interviewed by police as part of the investigation.

Wow a decade there. Shows you cold cases do not go unsolved as better late than never. As worried family members at least got closure even if it may not had been that of what they wanted and in the wanting to see him alive. Sad but it is bittersweet!

I’m assuming that while he was alive they came up with a scheme where she’d be able to keep receiving his social security checks after he died. For a decade. Good for them for showing initiative and creativity.

Maybe they just froze the body in case one day whatever he had could be cured

 

(not that it works that way)
