A 93-year-old Florida woman was found dead in a freezer located in the garage of the home that she shared with her daughter.
On April 28, 2022, officers responded to the 100 block of Paddock Street Sebastian, Florida, for a welfare check called in by a neighbor. The neighbors were concerned about not seeing Marie Hoskins for an extended period of time.
Officers made multiple unsuccessful attempts to contact anyone at the residence and were unable to obtain any information on the whereabouts of Mrs. Hoskins.
Due to the growing concern for her well-being, officers were able to obtain a key to the home with the assistance of an out-of-town family member and made entry into the house.
Once inside, officers located a 64-year-old resident, who initially stated she hadn’t seen her mother, Marie in some time.
As officers checked the rest of the home in an attempt to locate Mrs. Hoskins to check her wellbeing, a deceased body was located inside a large freezer in the garage.
“The tenant of the residence voluntarily came to the Sebastian Police Department for questioning as Detectives obtained a search warrant for the house on Paddock Street,” said Sebastian Police Department.
During the early morning hours of April 29, 2022, detectives executed a search warrant on the residence, recovering the body of 93-year-old, Marie Hoskins, as well as, other evidence.
Detectives are actively working with the Medical Examiner and the State Attorney’s Office on this case as it is still active at this time.
