A female landlord who went missing for days was eventually discovered in a freezer dismembered in Chicago.

She was identified as Frances Walker, initially reported missing from her home located at the 5900 block of North Washtenaw at around 7:00 p.m. on Monday.

According to authorities, it was a woman who rented one of the rooms in the residence that alerted the police after not seeing Walker for a day.

Police responded following the call and were told by an unnamed tenant living that someone was living there that they were afraid of, Fox 32 reported.

When authorities surveyed and checked, they reportedly discovered human remains inside a freezer.

"When police arrived, that individual told police there was another suspect who lived in the residence, that the other tenants were afraid of, and that suspect had recently called a tow truck and carried a heavy bag out to the tow truck,” CPD Chief of Detectives Brendan Deenihan said in a news conference on Tuesday.

Further, it was also revealed that a large plastic bag dumped by the suspect in a garbage can included bloody towels.

"This tenant as well, who we really want to thank because they did a remarkable job, exchanged numbers with the tow-truck driver," Deenihan added, "and we learned that this individual dumped a large plastic bag in the garbage can at Foster Beach, and detectives were able to go to that garbage can and see that there were some bloody towels in that garbage can."

It was also added by police that they were able to talk with the truck driver. He claimed that the suspect threatened him, pulling a knife on him.

The unnamed suspect has already been arrested. As of this writing, the charges that would be filed against the accused have yet to be known as an investigation into the matter remains ongoing.
