ST. LOUIS (WITI) -- Adam Smith made a shocking discovery inside the freezer of his family's apartment late Saturday night.
Smith's mother had just passed away and he decided to open a box that was wrapped and stored in the family freezer. He said the package had been in a freezer ever since he was a kid and his mother told him the package was none of his business, so he always avoided it.
“There was a pink blanket, baby blanket, and when I reached down and touched it, I could feel a foot,” said Smith. “I could see the baby's head with hair. The hair was still attached.”
Police responded and are investigating what they consider to be a suspicious death. Smith said he's distraught and has so many questions.
Smith wonders if the box he believes was stored in his freezer for decades contained the body of a baby who was his sister. He's also distraught over the possibility of what his mother may have done.
Smith said he remembers his mom once speaking about losing a child at birth and said a relative recently told him his mother gave birth to twins but lost one at birth and gave the other child up for adoption.
