Authorities say a teenager has discovered the body of his mother in a freezer at her North Texas home.

Mineral Wells Police Chief Dean Sullivan says the body was discovered Thursday evening and that the death is being investigated as a possible homicide. He says no suspects have been identified.

The name of the woman, believed to be in her 40s, is being withheld by police, who are being assisted by Texas Rangers. Authorities are awaiting the results of an autopsy.

The body was found in a deep freezer often used to store meat and other foods for long periods. It's not clear what led the teen to look in the freezer. The boy called police after finding his mother.

Mineral Wells is about 50 miles west of Fort Worth.
