A FOUL smell led cops to discover a woman’s rotting body in a broken fridge at her boyfriend’s apartment.
Pennsylvania police discovered the woman’s remains in a McKees Rocks apartment building after residents reported a disgusting odor.
While searching a second floor apartment on Monday they discovered Kristy Jefferson’s badly decomposed body, wrapped in a sheet, in a broken refrigerator, according to KDKA.
The mum-of-four’s body was also reportedly partially dismembered, The Pittsburgh Post Gazette said.
The remains were found in the refrigerator in a hallway just 20ft from Daryl Jones’ front door, WPXI claimed.
Jefferson, 38, was last seen on April 26, when she FaceTimed relatives.
Jones, 40, had a violent past, according to the criminal complaint filed by the police, with neighbors telling KDKA that the pair fought regularly.
Neighbor John Starling said: “I’m not even sure it was a person at first. I saw a hand and a dirty sheet. It was gruesome."
“It’s hurting us. She didn’t deserve this at all,” said Delisha Porter, the victim’s sister.
Officers who searched the building found a foul smell coming from the basement, where they are said to have found bags of bedsheets that were covered in bodily fluids.
Police claimed they also found various items with Jefferson’s name on it inside and outside of Jones’ apartment.
