Indiana police find decomposing body in freezer

KOKOMO, Ind. — An Indiana man faces charges that he killed a friend and hid the body in his basement freezer.

Police in Kokomo say they found a badly decomposed body Sunday in the freezer at a house where they were looking for 29-year-old Alex Shipp. Shipp’s mother reported him missing Saturday and told police she hadn’t heard from him since Nov. 8.

Police Maj. Brian Seldon says investigators determined that Shipp was last seen at the house in the city about 40 miles north of Indianapolis. Seldon told The Indianapolis Star the freezer wasn’t turned on and that an autopsy was planned today to identify the remains.

The resident of the house, 51-year-old Walter Logan, was being held on a preliminary murder charge. It wasn’t immediately clear whether he had an attorney.
