    St. Louis, MO (KMOV) — An infant was found dead in a freezer in South St. Louis Saturday.

Police said they were called to the home in the 6000 block of Magnolia just before 1 a.m. Sunday for a “suspicious death.”

While police have not released any further information, a St. Louis man told News 4 he was cleaning out the freezer at his mother’s home after she recently died.

The man tells News 4 he opened a box that had been in the freezer for as long as he could remember, at least 20 years, and found the baby wrapped in a pink blanket. He then called police.

An autopsy is being conducted to determine a cause of death.

Anyone with information is being urged to call the Homicide Division at 314-444-5371 or CrimeStoppers at 866-371-8477.
