On Ellen’s deceased mother Wendy’s side were Aunt Janice, Uncle Graham, and Aunt Shelley. It wasn’t surprising when her mothers’ sister Aunt Janice, her husband Craig, and their two boys took her in. One day after a full day at the water park with her cousins there was an ice cream factory that they stopped at for a tour and somehow her relatives got locked in one of the huge freezers. By the end of the 40-minute tour Ellen suddenly noticed them missing and after another 20-minutes searching they found the four people dead. Their bodies lost heat 25% faster than if they had been dry they were still damp from the water park and it hurried the process of hypothermia. Crystallized blood was on the interior latch, efforts of them trying to get out which the factory workers said was weird because there was an interior safety release but it was broken.
