Minneapolis, MN (The Weekly Vice) - Jetaun Wheeler, a 29-year-old Minnesota woman, has been jailed after she allegedly killed her boyfriend and then stored him in a freezer after he attempted to break up with her.
According to police, an investigation was launched after Wheeler's 58-year-old boyfriend went missing for nearly two weeks after he told them Wheeler had assaulted him.
Investigators say the victim called them on July 31 and stated that Wheeler had assaulted him and that he was leaving her. He went on to say that he was preparing to end his relationship with her and move back to Chicago where he is originally from.
The victim also told friends and family members that Wheeler "had assaulted him and had been acting crazy." When the victim failed to arrive in Chicago, family members called Wheeler to find out what happened. When Wheeler informed them that he had already traveled to Chicago, the victim's family called police.
When detectives searched the couple's house on August 13, they found bloody carpet and blood spatter on a patch of carpet that had been rolled up and then stored behind mattresses in the garage.
The blood spatter led officers to a freezer chest where they found the victim's frozen body.
The victim was found sealed in duct table and stored in a freezer chest that looked as though it had been recently purchased. A pile of Christmas decorations was piled on top of the freezer to make it appear as though it hadn't been used for several months.
According to the Hennepin County Medical Examiner's Office, an autopsy revealed that the victim died from several blunt force injuries to his head and face. The victim also suffered several significant lacerations to his left eye and the left side of his head.
The autopsy also found several defensive wounds to the victim's arms and the back of his hands
Wheeler's three children (ages 10, 8, and 7), who were living with her at the time of the murder, have also turned up missing. Investigators believe Wheeler hid the children so that they would not be placed into protective custody.
Wheeler was booked into jail and charged with second-degree murder.
