A decomposing body has been found stuffed into a taped-up freezer in a woman's New York City apartment.
The grim discovery was made just after 1pm on Thursday local time (3am Friday AEST) by the apartment owner's son, police sources have told local media.
The man had walked to the apartment on Broadway, near West 150th Street, to wrap up his mother's affairs following her recent death.
He found the corpse in a stand-alone freezer in the woman's living room.
The freezer had been sealed shut with duct tape.
A police source told the New York Post they "can't tell if it's a man or a woman or black or white".
The NYPD has confirmed that a person was found dead at the address.
The city's Medical Examiner will be investigating the circumstances surrounding the death.
