A man from Missouri has discovered what he believes as the mummified body of his older sister in the freezer of his deceased mother behind a cake after decades of researching her what was in a mysterious box.
Adam Smith says his mother Barbara for decades did not answer his questions about what was stored in the container, even after he had entered her apartment in St. Louis when she was diagnosed with cancer.
After she died last week, Smith finally examined what he thought was cash, and was shocked when he found the body of a baby.
& # 39; It still had skin hair and everything it was mummified, & # 39; Smith said KSDK about the moment he opened his hand and felt a foot on Sunday. & # 39; Then I went crazy, put it in the box and immediately called the police. & # 39;

Smith explained that he had wrapped the frozen body of a baby in a pink fleece.
The police arrived at the apartment around 1 am.
& # 39; The main killer was blunt, & # 39; Smith said SME. & # 39; He literally looked at me and said, "This is a good one". & # 39;
As Barbara had mentioned a brother or sister who died before Smith was born, he believes that this may have been his mother's child.
He said only recently that his family members told him that his mother – who died on July 21 – actually had twins, but lost one at birth and gave up the other for adoption.
& # 39; I'm 37 … and I was always told it was a wedding cake top. It turned out to be a baby, & Smith continued. & # 39; We say 46 or 47 (year) – that's how long. I assume it's my sister, so long in a box in the freezer. & # 39;

Smith waits for the results of the autopsy to see if the child was born alive. He is frustrated that he may never know what happened.
Smith added to Fox 2 that the find & # 39; insane & # 39; and admitted that he & # 39; so many thoughts & # 39; has.
& # 39; Who definitely keeps his own child in a box for so long and never talks about it? & # 39; he said to the network.
Police said the investigation is still active.
& # 39; I asked her several times, it was a no-no conversation or (she) blew me off. My mother has always been a secret about things (in) life, & he added to KSDK. & # 39; I'm more confused, angry. I just want to find closure, I want to find more answers. & # 39;
