WARRI-  A 45-year-old woman was burnt to death inside a deep freezer  in her apartment at Enerhen, near Warri, Delta state, in the early hours of Wednesday.

The circumstances surrounding her death were still shrouded in secrecy and police have swung into action to unravel the mystery.

He confirmed that the charred remains of the deceased was actually found by the police “in a deep freezer in her apartment and investigation into the case has commenced with a view to unraveling the cause of the fire outbreak and deceased’s death”.

The police spokesman said no arrest has been made.
