Supermarket worker missing for 10 years found dead trapped behind shop freezer

Colleagues of a man who went missing ten years ago found him behind a shop freezer.

On November 28, 2009 Larry Ely Murillo-Moncada was reported missing.

In January, more than nine years later, remains of his body were found in a former No Frills Supermarket in Council Bluffs, Iowa.

According to the 25-year-old's parents the last time they saw him he had become upset and ran out of their home.

They said he was acting irrationally, possibly because of the medication he was on, CNN reported.

After investigators confirmed Mr Murillo-Moncada's identity by using DNA from his parents and matching the clothes with ones he was thought to be wearing when he vanished, they began to speculate on how he had got behind the freezer.

The primary theory is that Mr Murillo-Moncada went to the supermarket where he worked and climbed on the utility, which was used as storage for merchandise and as a spot where employees took unofficial breaks.

He then fell into the 18-inch gap between the back of the freezer and the wall, it is thought, where he became stuck.

Noise from the compressors may have concealed his attempts to call for help.

An autopsy found no signs of trauma, and the case has been deemed an accidental death.
