Fox News reported a woman working at the warehouse, Lilian Argueta screamed in shock as she opened the freezer. She told the Sun-Sentinel she initially thought the body was a "witch or a mannequin."

The fridge reportedly belonged to Jonathan Escarzaga, who was found dead inside his apartment in February. The freezer was moved to a scrap warehouse in Margate from his apartment following his death.

The warehouse owner told the freezer wasn't locked and they opened it about a month after Escarzaga's death where they found the missing woman.

It is still unknown if Escarzaga and Lacey had any relation or if Escarzaga had any connection to Lacey's death. Lacey's body was taken to the Broward County Medical Examiner's Office.
