Rapid City, SD
Law enforcement authorities say the body of an elderly woman found in a freezer may have been moved to western South Dakota from Arkansas.
Pennington County Sheriff Kevin Thom says the body found in the freezer at a Rapid City home is believed to have been transported from Fayetteville, Arkansas.
The body was found Thursday. Deputies made the discovery while responding to a call about a possible missing person case related to an ongoing fraud investigation.
The woman has not been identified. Thom says an autopsy will be conducted Monday to determine the woman's cause of death.
Pennington County Sheriff's Capt. Corey Brubakken on Thursday said the four people who live in the home where the body was found had cooperated with the investigation.
