A man walked into a police station and admitted he used a saw to cut up his mother, and the body parts were stashed in their apartment freezer, according to LA Now. 18-year-old Moises Meraz-Espinoza of Maywood made his shocking revelation at a Huntington Park police station on Friday, and today the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department says they are investigating the case.

Authorities "confirmed that the body parts were found in the freezer," but have not made public further details. Meraz-Espinoza allegedly also shared news of his mother's slaying with family members, who told authorities the young man "seemed depressed after his girlfriend was hit by a car and killed four months ago."
