YCSO Seeks Chest Freezer Previously Owned by Walter Mitchell Featured

As the investigation continues in the recovery of human remains and the arrest of suspect Walter Mitchell, detectives are seeking additional information from the public.

Big Idea

  • Yavapai County Sheriff Office Detectives are hoping to locate a potentially important piece of evidence in the case
  • Wayne Mitchell may have owned a chest freezer, which was sold in the last couple of months
  • The sale took place on Reed Road in Chino Valley
  •

Detectives seek chest freezer which may have contained human remains.

Detectives are hoping to locate what is commonly known as a “chest freezer” owned by Mitchell and then sold in Chino Valley sometime between mid-November and December 19, 2020. The freezer is a 1970’s to early 1980’s model, top loading style, and off-pale yellow in color. It is likely Mitchell advertised the freezer on Craigslist or a similar publication with the sale taking place at a home on Reed Road in Chino Valley. Detectives would like to speak with the person or persons that bought the freezer or anyone who might have knowledge of the sale. 

If you have information on this request, please contact Detective JT Smith at 928-777-7271 or Yavapai Silent Witness at 1-800-932-3232. You can also submit a tip online at yavapaisw.com.

Mitchell remains in-custody on a $250,000 bond.

Mitchell is also the author of a book titled, “Serial Killer” which has some unnerving similarities to this case.
