A Mississippi woman allegedly beat her boyfriend to death with a blunt tool and then hid his body in a freezer.
Jetaun Wheeler, 29, is being held in custody after her partner’s body was found hidden in her garage. The police have not released the name of the victim as yet but have confirmed he was 58-years-old.
The couple shared a home in Shorewood, near to Twin Cities. The criminal report confirms that the victim called a friend on July 31, complaining that his girlfriend had assaulted him and that he was leaving her and heading back to Chicago.
Following that attack the victim was left with scratches to the face. He told the friend that Wheeler was “crazy,” abruptly ending the call and saying he would call back. The return call never came.
The man’s body, which was found hidden in a freezer, had been wrapped in plastic and and sealed off with duct tape. Mike Freeman, the Hennepin County Attorney said: “It (the body) was in a big trunk freezer, the kind your grandmother had.”
After the victim was reported missing on August 15, police canvassed the area to try and find the missing man. A neighbor reported that the victim had had a heated argument in the driveway of the house with Wheeler two weeks earlier.
The police have said that Wheeler has been wholly uncooperative with them during her time in custody. There appears to be little doubt that Wheeler is guilty of the accusations against her. But the exact events which led up to the woman bludgeoning her boyfriend to death remain to be seen.
