Freezer Burning Your Children


Speaking of freezer burn, life couldn’t be any more crueler than a mother who has allegedly killed and froze her two children in their own home over a year ago. The two children who are the victims were a boy about 11, and a daughter 14 years-old.

The mother Michelle Blair reportedly lived inside the Martin Luther King Apartments in Detroit, Michigan. Neighbors and newspaper reports stated the childrenmitchelle were home-schooled so being absent from the traditional school system did not raise any flags. However, the mother managed to hide their sudden disappearances from friends, family, and neighbors. Surprisingly, Mitchelle even managed to somehow allegedly hide their deaths from her other two children 11 and 17 who are currently in protective custody and are being questioned by the police as to their having any knowledge of the cruel deaths.

It was not immediately known if the two surviving children, ages 11 and 17, were aware the bodies of their sister and brother were in the home. They were being questioned by police and social workers Tuesday, police said, and are in protective custody.

The frozen bodies were discovered around 11:30 a.m. this past Tuesday inside a townhouse within the complex on the 800 block of St. Aubin by an eviction crew sent their after Mitchelle Blair was evicted for not paying her rent. Court agents responsible for clearing the premises of occupancy, furniture, etc., first discovered the female child and then the boy later in the freezer, according to police. Reports stated the freezer was near the front door of the apartment.
“Unfortunately, we see a lot of bad things on this job,” he said.

According to the Detroit News one of the neighbors Shane¬†Childs stated, Mitchelle Blair told her, “I’m sorry” before being taken away to jail.
