Woman found dead in freezer of downtown Atlanta hotel

A woman died after getting apparently trapped inside of a walk-in freezer for about 13 hours at a downtown Atlanta hotel where she worked, police said Tuesday.

CBS affiliate WGLC reported that the deceased was Carolyn Robinson, a 61-year-old employee in the culinary department,

A search for the woman began when she didn’t return home after her shift at the Westin Peachtree Plaza, one of the city’s most recognizable skyscrapers with its cylindrical shape. WGLC reported that Robinson’s family alerted the hotel she was missing.

Investigators reviewed hotel surveillance video, and they believe she may have entered the freezer about 8 p.m. Monday. She was found shortly after 9 a.m. Tuesday, Atlanta police Lt. Charles Hampton said.

There was evidence the woman tried to get out of the freezer, but Hampton didn’t elaborate on what led investigators to that.
