Missing French Chef's Body Found In Freezer Enlarge photo Detectives discovered the frozen corpse of Jean-Francois Poinard after his girlfriend Guylene Collober, 51, told her daughter "something unfortunate" had happened to him.

The 71-year-old's body is believed to have been secreted in a freezer at their home in Lyon for up to two years.

He was found in the foetal position and covered with plastic bags.

Ms Collober is said to have made the revelation to her daughter during a night out.

Her daughter told police, who found Mr Poinard's body at the flat.

Ms Collober is said to have collapsed in tears when officers arrived, saying: "I think you'll find what you're looking for."

A police spokesman said: "An initial examination suggests the body could have been there for up to two years.

"A full post-mortem examination will be carried out to discover the precise cause of death."

He said Ms Collober had been taken into custody and charged with hiding a body and that further charges would depend on the findings of the post-mortem.

Mr Poinard was a famous chef in the 1970s and 80s, and ran a series of restaurants in the French culinary capital of Lyon.

He has been described by food critics as one of the 'great names' in gastronomy.
