The body is believed to be the wife of suicide victim.

On May 24, 2011 at approximately 1:53 p.m. deputies responded to 201 Kings Boulevard in Sun City in reference to a deceased person. The complainant, Carol Kingsbury of Sun City Center had taken custody of the residence that had been given to her as part of the estate of Allan Dunn. Kingsbury had initially received the residence from Allan Dunn, DOB 6-21-24 of 201 Kings Boulevard in Sun City after Dunn committed suicide on August 4, 2010. Kingsbury had been the caregiver for Dunn for two years. The estate had been in probate and Kingsbury had gone to the residence on May 24, 2011 to clean and that is when she discovered a body in a chest freezer on the back porch of the residence.
The body was turned over to the medical examiners office and a preliminary autopsy has been completed. The body is that of a white female, approximately 78-80 years of age and appears to have been deceased for approximately 10 years. According to the preliminary autopsy there does not appear to be any trauma to the body. Based on the condition of the body and evidence obtained it appears the female died from natural causes.
It is believed that the body could possibly be the wife of suicide victim, Allan Dunn, but that has not been positively confirmed at this time. Investigators believe that the victim died of natural causes in 2000 and was placed in the freezer which enabled Allan Dunn to continue receiving monetary benefits for his deceased wife.
Investigators continue to work with the Medical Examiners Office to confirm the identity and are attempting to locate any next of kin.
