UPDATED: Woman Found in Fridge Was Stabbed, Had Been Missing for Months
Update, Dec. 10, 2014, 9:10 a.m.: Houston police have identified the woman found fatally stabbed at 10555 Fondren as 27-year-old Anastacia Oaikhena Lambert.
HPD also released a photo of Anastacia and her 11-month-old son Apollo, who is still missing, and has been for at least a week. Police believe that he may be with his father, Patrick Lambert, and may be in danger.
The woman who was found dead in a fridge in her southwest Houston apartment had been fatally stabbed, according to an HPD report released Tuesday. Police are now searching for her missing toddler and husband.
The 27-year-old unnamed victim was found in the refrigerator of her Fondren Road apartment after maintenance personnel at the complex became concerned with the foul odor coming from the unit and called police, according to HPD.
The woman had not been seen for at least a month, according to authorities.
The woman and her 11-month-old son, Achilles Lambert, lived in the apartment. Police are looking for Achilles and his father, Patrick Lambert, who is now being called a suspect in the stabbing.
Neither has been seen for at least a week, according to police.
Neighbors recalled seeing the woman with her baby after they moved into the neighborhood in June, but none can remember seeing her in the last month or so, according to reports.
Police told Channel 11 that electricity at the apartment had been shut off due to nonpayment on November 20, even though the unit was still occupied.
An Amber Alert has been issued for Achilles, who is believed to be with his father.
The child is believed to be in danger, and anyone with any information is asked to call the Houston Police Department immediately.
