A police officer talks to neighbors near 1415 Kaighn Ave., in Camden, N.J., Wednesday, Aug. 22, 2012.  Police say a New Jersey mother apparently decapitated her 2-year-old boy and put his head in the freezer of their home before she fatally stabbed herself. Chevonne Thomas, 33, called 911 just after midnight to say something had happened to her child and it "sounded like she had done it," said Jason Laughlin, a spokesman for the county prosecutor's office. Officers found Zahree Thomas' body on the first floor of the Camden home and the boy's head in the freezer. The mother stabbed herself in the neck with a kitchen knife and died, Laughlin said.
