LOMA LINDA (CBSLA.com) — Authorities Tuesday night said a dead animal, not a human body, was inside a donated freezer at a thrift shop in Loma Linda.

Employees of the shop, located in the 24800 block of Redlands Boulevard, called sheriff’s deputies after finding a large, smelly black bag in the freezer.
