KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) - Police say a body discovered in a freezer at a property in Kansas is an Arizona trucker who was reported missing in October.

The body of 53-year-old Lawrence Peter Muirhead was found Sunday inside the freezer in a garage behind a home in Kansas City, Kan.

City police said Thursday Muirhead's death is considered a homicide. They have provided no details on how he died.

Muirhead's family reported him missing Oct. 1 when he didn't return home to Tucson after a trip to Pennsylvania. Relatives said their last contact with him was Sept. 28.

The truck he was driving was found abandoned Oct. 4 in Merriam, Kan., 8 miles southwest of Kansas City.

City police spokesman Patrick McCallop declined to say who lived at the home or found the body.
