Baby boy found safe with father after mom was found dead in fridge

HOUSTON — Authorities say an 11-month-old boy whose mother was found dead in the refrigerator of her Houston apartment has been found safe in Mexico with his father, who has been taken into custody as a suspect in the killing.

An Amber Alert cancellation issued Friday by the Houston Police Department says 38-year-old Patrick Lambert and the child, Achilles Lambert, are awaiting return to the United States. Patrick Lambert has not been charged in his wife’s death.

Neither he nor his wife had seen or heard from since workers found the body of 27-year-old Anastacia Oaikhena Lambert Monday in the refrigerator at her apartment. She had been stabbed to death and her body was discovered after the workers noticed a strong odor coming from the home.

The apartment’s power was turned off Nov. 20 because the utility bills weren’t paid.
