(Scroll down for video) A woman and her son were accused of murder after police found a dead body inside their freezer, according to police reports in California.

Ventura Police said they found the body of a California man missing for more than two years inside a freezer in a storage unit belonging to his girlfriend.

Authorities found the body of Jeffrey Korber in June after raiding the storage unit in Ventura, as part of a homicide investigation, Ventura police commander Darin Schindler said.

Now, police are requesting more information about Mary Hannan, 66, and her son Michael Bresnak, Schindler said.
Police said in a statement that they believe Bresnak and his mother conspired to kill Korber, and that she helped him save the body.

Bresnak, 49, is currently in the Ventura County jail on a violation of his probation terms regarding a drug-related crime, police said. He has not been charged in this case yet.

Hannan, who is listed as an attorney in the State Bar of California’s website has not been arrested yet.

Korber was reported missing by his brother in July 2011 in Laguna Beach. Police in Orange County attempted to locate Korber, who did not have a job and spent much of his time traveling around the country.
