A woman in Florida is accused of concealing her dead mother’s body in a freezer so she could collect her disability checks.

Sebastian police arrested Michele R. Hoskins, 64, after discovering her mother’s dead body in a deep freezer during a welfare check on April 28.

According to the Sebastian Police Department, Michele Hoskins admitted to investigators that after finding her mother dead in a bedroom, she purchased a deep freezer and placed her mother’s body inside because she was concerned she would not receive the woman’s disability benefits.

Police say they found a heavily soiled mattress hidden in thick brush and covered by palm tree branches in Hoskins’ backyard while executing a search warrant.

According to investigators, Hoskins’ 93-year-old mother, Marie Hoskins, died from natural causes and was dead for about two weeks before being placed inside the freezer.
