TIJUANA, Mexico (AP) - Mexican authorities are seeking the killers of a 97-year-old woman who was found murdered this week, her body stored in the refrigerator of her home in Rosarito Beach, an upscale beach town near Tijuana.

Baja California assistant prosecutor’s spokesman Raul Gutierrez on Friday identified the woman as 97-year-old Hellen Mani, originally of Ohio. He said she had stab wounds to her head and neck and had been beaten.

Gutierrez says Main had paid a couple every month to care for her. But he said the woman recently left and the man was caring for Mani alone.

Neighbors called police Tuesday because all was quiet at the home after they heard a loud argument there Monday evening.

Police found blood on the second floor and Mani’s body in the refrigerator.
