KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) — A frozen body discovered last week in Kansas belongs to an Arizona truck driver who was reported missing in October, authorities said Thursday.
The body of 53-year-old Lawrence Peter Muirhead was found Sunday inside a freezer in a detached garage behind a home in Kansas City, Kansas.
Police said Thursday his death is considered a homicide.
Muirhead's family reported him missing Oct. 1 when he didn't return home to Tucson after a trip to Pennsylvania. Relatives said their last contact with him was Sept. 28.
The truck he was driving was found abandoned Oct. 4 in Merriam.
Kansas City police haven't said how Muirhead died.
