The body of a Utah man was found in a freezer at his home — with a notarized letter stating his wife wasn’t responsible.

Paul Mathers’ frozen remains were found during a police search of his house in Tooele, Utah, where he had lived with his wife, Jeanne Souron-Mathers.

Mathers, who had been diagnosed with a terminal illness, was last seen at a Veterans Affairs medical center on Feb. 4, 2009. He is believed to have died between Feb. 4 and March 8 of that year.

Before he passed on, Paul Mathers wrote a letter stating his wife was not responsible for his death and got the letter notarized in December 2008, according to a search warrant.
