    WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — Authorities responding to a suicide in Florida have made a chilling discovery — a body stored in a carport freezer.

    It's a tragedy that touches three generations of a Palm Beach County family.

    Sheriff's deputies say they received a call Saturday morning after a man found that his father had stuck a suicide note in his door. The man found his father dead in a van in front of the home.

    When authorities arrived, they found the grandfather's body in a freezer. In the suicide note from the father, he said his elderly father was in his 80s and had died. He said he could not bear to let go, so he froze the body.

    An autopsy will be performed to determine the cause of death.
