MINERAL WELLS -- Mineral Wells police are investigating the death of a woman whose body was found inside a deep freezer.

Police Chief Dean Sullivan said the woman's son found her body inside the freezer at a home at about 6:30 p.m. Thursday near the intersection of Southeast 19th St. and Southeast 14th Ave.

Sullivan did not release the woman's name, but said she is in her 40s. A relative identified the woman as Shannon Herrin.

Police are calling the case a homicide investigation, but said there are no suspects. 

Sullivan said it's too early to tell whether foul play is involved in Herrin's death. The police chief said he's seen accidents where people have fallen into freezers and weren't able to get out.

It's not known how long Herrin was in the freezer. The Tarrant County Medical Examiner will determine an official cause of death.
