SUN CITY CENTER, Fla., May 27 (UPI) -- A body found in a freezer in a Florida condo could be the wife of the man who lived there until his suicide last year, police said.
Allan Dunn, who committed suicide at 86, had told neighbors his wife was in a nursing home, but investigators said they believe the body in the freezer could be Dunn's wife, Margaret, and suspect he may have kept her death secret more than a decade so he could collect her benefits, the St. Petersburg Times reported Friday.
Friends of Dunn discovered the body when they entered the condo this week after a court gave them permission to get his final affairs in order.
"He never gave any indication that something like that was going on," Carol Kingsbury said. "We had no hint or anything that he was capable of doing that."
Investigators say it appears the woman died of natural causes.
Property records show Margaret Dunn purchased the condo In Sun City in 1994.
Five years later, Allan Dunn was named guardian of his wife and assumed possession of all her property and income, records show.
