Investigators said in a preliminary assessment that a man who was discovered dead in a freezer in Minnesota last month was evading police.
In the basement of a vacant house in the hamlet of Biwabik, the body of 34-year-old Brandon Lee Buschman of Babbitt, Minnesota, was discovered on June 26.
According to a news release from the police on Friday, the reason why investigators think Buschman was hiding out at the house was the active arrest warrant for him. They think he entered the freezer on his own initiative to conceal, maybe realising that police were around.
According to the authorities, the freezer was an older type that could not be opened from the inside. When Buschman’s body was discovered, the residence had no electricity and the freezer was not operating.
