When the body of 27-year-old Anastacia Oaikhena-Lambert was found inside the refrigerator at her home in Houston, Texas last Monday, it sparked an Amber Alert to find her 11-month-old son Achilles Lambert and his father.

The father of the boy, 38-year-old Patrick Lambert, whom police wanted for questioning regarding the mother’s death, was believed to have taken Achilles with him when he left the area.

While homicide detectives removed the refrigerator from the complex on Tuesday to search for further evidence, the manhunt for father and child intensified.

Father and child were discovered in separate locations on Friday, Achilles in Queretaro, central Mexico and Patrick in an undisclosed location. The child is described as being in good health, according to the New York Daily News and both are awaiting transportation back to the U.S.

Police said they didn’t know how father and son ended up in Mexico as they had difficulty tracking them down because they didn’t know what kind of vehicle Lambert was driving. He had been talking about leaving town two weeks before the discovery of Anastacia’s body, according to neighbors.

The couple had moved to the southeast Houston apartments in June and the power had been turned off in November because they had unpaid utility bills, according to reports. It is unclear at this time how long Anastacia’s body had been in the refrigerator, but police suspect that it may have been up to two weeks.

The woman’s body was discovered by maintenance workers when neighbors complained of a foul odor coming from the apartment. An autopsy revealed that she had died from stab wounds to the neck.

No one realized that Anastacia was missing, because she didn’t have family in the area and she was not employed, police said. The report continued that they had been called to the apartment three months ago when Anastacia called 911 to report her husband was threatening her with a knife, but no charges were filed.

Police said that Anastacia, who was originally from West Africa, was last seen walking around the complex about two weeks ago with a small child. The Harris County Medical Examiner has reportedly been able to contact her sister, Anita Oaikhena, in Nigeria with the help of the Nigerian consulate.
