APNewsBreak: Autopsy of woman found dead in freezer amended


ATLANTA (AP) — A medical examiner says an exit button inside a downtown Atlanta hotel where a worker was found dead failed to work during an inspection, trapping two people who had to beat on the door to alert someone to let them out.

The Fulton County Medical Examiner’s Office has amended its autopsy for 61-year-old Carolyn Mangham to include the new details about the freezer exit button at the Westin Peachtree Plaza.

A spokeswoman for the hotel’s parent firm, Starwood Hotels & Resorts, said they’ve cooperated fully with investigators.

The autopsy report obtained Wednesday by The Associated Press lists the cause of Mangham’s death as “undetermined.”

Investigators believe Mangham, who also went by Carolyn Robinson, spent about 13 hours inside the freezer before she was found in March.
