Woman's body found in a FRIDGE after being stuffed in 'like a piece of steak' wrapped in plastic, family says

A WOMAN'S body has been discovered in a fridge after allegedly being stuffed in a refrigerator "like a piece of steak" and wrapped in plastic and blankets, according to family members.

The body of Sherbert “Strawberry” Maddox was discovered early on March 22.



“My mom called me this morning and let me know that her boyfriend killed her and put her in the refrigerator like a piece of steak,” Sharmane Jackson, Maddox's cousin, told WJAR.

Police were called to a home in Providence, Rhode Island early Tuesday morning after Maddox's uncle, Marvin Maddox, was tipped off.

"I was at work and I got a call from one of my friends that said your niece might be in trouble," he told WJAR.

"We called the police and sure enough, she was upstairs wrapped up in a refrigerator, and they brought him out, and it's sad, you know, she didn't deserve to go like that."

Family members gathered in a court room on March 23 as Cooper met with a judge, and some could not contain their emotions.

One woman was caught on camera shouting expletives at the accused killer.

"You killed my sister," the woman screamed at Cooper.

The courtroom then had to be cleared before Cooper could be brought back in. He did not enter a plea and is being held without bail.

A memorial for Maddox had significantly grown in size from Tuesday to Wednesday, according to reports.

Family and friends had gathered to pay tribute to a life cut short.

"I hope she's in heaven looking down. I hope she's one of my angels," Sharmane Johnson said to WJAR.

"Everybody loved her," Marvin Maddox told the outlet.

"Just know that everybody loved her."
