Woman hides mother's corpse in freezer at home (ANSA) - Novara, January 23 - A woman who hid her mother's corpse in the freezer may have done so to continue collecting her pension, Italian police said Thursday.

The body was discovered when the daughter became ill and called emergency services in her town of Borgomanero, almost 100 km northeast of Turin, for help.

Because the door was locked, police were called to force their way into the home the woman shared with her mother, whose cause of death has not yet been determined.

Police continue to investigate.
