Hobbs police: Death of man in freezer tied to meth

HOBBS, N.M. (AP) - Police in Hobbs are identifying a man whose body was found in a kitchen freezer and they say he died accidentally from methamphetamine.

According to police, the body of 22-year-old Everett Willford was found in the freezer on Sept. 3 when officers responded to a call about a suspicious odor coming from the home.

The body was taken to the state Office of the Medical Investigator to determine identification and cause of death.

Officer Mike Stone says the home was vacant and didn't have power and that neighbors started smelling the odor about 10 days before calling police.

Stone says circumstances of how Willford's body ended up in the freezer remain unknown and that there may be no further action in the case.
