Remains of Three Fetuses Discovered in Dead Woman's Freezer

Friday, December 08, 2006

COLUMBIA, Tenn. The remains of what were tentatively identified as three human fetuses or infants were discovered in the freezer of a woman who was found dead in her home last month.

A family member who was clearing out the apartment discovered the bodies bagged in a freezer Thursday, Detective Lt. Michelle Jones said.

The age and cause of death will be determined in an autopsy expected to be done Saturday by state Medical Examiner Dr. Bruce Levy.

"The cold conditions do certain things to the flesh. It's kind of hard to comment on the age now," Jones said. "These were not like 9-pound babies. They were smaller in nature."

Jones said 35-year-old Tracy Howard lived alone in the apartment. Her body was found there Nov. 28 after co-workers became concerned when she didn't show up for work.

An initial autopsy showed she died of natural causes, but toxicology reports are pending.

"There was no indication from the scene that pointed to investigators that it might be suicide," Jones said. "It appeared natural, even though she was 35."

DNA tests also will be done to determine whether Howard was the mother. The initial autopsy did not indicate she was pregnant, and so far, no one has said she was.

"Ms. Howard was a rather large female, and it probably would not have been as prominent with her as it would have been with a small woman," Jones said.

Detectives planned to interview some of Howard's friends Friday.

This is the city just south of me by about 10 miles, and surprisingly there is not more in the news here locally about it yet. I think it is so freakin' strange everyone is waiting to see what is up before they run with it.

Well, I guess I need to get offended at all the ethnic, gay, wife, husband, redneck, yankee, canadian, fat jokes, and if none of those threads get deleted, it would be a tragic injustice as I'm certain that some people are offended by them.

Just plain pathetic
I've never allowed them. Its not something new.

Autopsies on frozen babies delayed
Bodies must thaw before state can determine how they died

By MICHAELA JACKSON
Staff Writer

The bodies of three babies found in a dead Columbia woman's freezer may have been there "four or five years," state Medical Examiner Bruce Levy said Friday.

But autopsies that might provide an answer to how they died have been put on hold because of the condition of the bodies.


"At this point, we need to wait for them to defrost," Levy said. "When a body is frozen, you obviously can't perform an autopsy on them."

The three babies were discovered Thursday at the Graymere Apartments on Union Place in Columbia.

Relatives found remains

It was in the same apartment that the body of Tracy Howard, 35, was found Nov. 28. Preliminary findings suggest Howard died of natural causes, though a final determination isn't expected for several weeks after toxicology results are known.

But this week, family members cleaning out her apartment found the dead babies in the freezer portion of her refrigerator, Columbia police officials said.

"Obviously there's been damage to the body for being stored in the freezer for that amount of time, and what we want to try and do is minimize any additional deterioration …," Levy said.

The bodies are being kept in a refrigerated setting so they can be thawed slowly and avoid further decomposition that might result from sudden heat.

It was unclear whether the babies were unborn fetuses or newly born infants, though investigators suspect they were fetuses.

"You can't really tell what they were" until the autopsy is complete, Columbia police Lt. Michelle Jones said. "Hopefully there'll be some indicators as to what happened. The autopsy is going to point us in a more direct direction."

Levy said he believed the autopsies would take place early next week, though they could be as soon as this weekend.

Neighbors surprised

Meanwhile, neighbors in the apartment complex where the grisly find was made said Friday that they were shocked to learn of the situation and said Howard "seemed like a normal person."

"Just anybody doing that with a fetus is shocking," said David Hinebaugh, who along with wife Dawn moved into the apartment next to Howard over the Thanksgiving weekend.

"It can't help but make your mind wonder. Of all the situations you could run into, why would anyone want to do that?"

The couple added that they saw Howard wearing what appeared to be medical scrubs one evening outside her apartment.

Officials at nearby Maury County Regional Hospital said that Howard was not an employee there as of Friday and that human resources managers were out of the office and could not immediately confirm whether she had ever worked there.

Columbia Police Department detective Andre Martin said he did not know
whether Howard had worked at the hospital or in any other medical setting.

Police investigators have been unable to find anyone who knew of Howard's being pregnant, Jones said.

They have a head shot of her on this one. It looks like now they might be questioning her death as well, seeing as how there are some odd circumstances around it.

I can't wait for this whole thing to unfold. Yea it's sick that I'm even curious... I mean I lived in the south... I'm sure there's some more of this around there

My guesses:

aside from her regular job she was a fat nasty hooker w/ out any kind of contraceptives... figured out how to get the babies out.... *throw the babies out?* why...a woman's gotta eat! BBQ baby anyone?

Fine No more dead baby jokes

* What's the difference between a dead lady and an onion.
You don't cry when you chop up a dead lady.

* How do you make a lady cry twice?
Wipe your bloody cock on her teddy bear.

* What's the best sound in the world?
Hearing dead lady's hips crack under pressure!

* What's more fun than a barrel of dead ladies?
Sticking pins in their eyes.

* What's blue and orange and lies at the bottom of a swimming pool?
A lady with burst armbands.

* How many dead ladies does it take to screw in a light bulb?
As many as it takes to climb on top of them in order to reach the socket.

and by lady,....you know what the fuck I mean
