A St. Louis man made a gruesome discovery in his recently deceased mother's freezer. He found a dead baby in a box that he says has been in his mother's freezer since he was a child.

Adam Smith tells KTVI he has been living with his mother taking care of her because she was ill. She recently passed away, so this past Saturday Smith decided to finally look to see what was inside the box he been made to stay away from his whole life.

Smith says he thought it was an old wedding cake in the box.

"There was a pink baby blanket, and when I reached down and touched it, I could feel a foot. I could see the baby’s head with hair. Hair was still attached to it, smooth."

Police are calling the death suspicious and have launched an investigation.

As you can imagine, this ordeal has been pretty rough on Smith. He says when he thinks about the possibility that the baby that has been in his mother's freezer for years could be his sister.
