      WOMAN FOUND DEAD IN FREEZER LOCKER   
       
      EL CAMPO-- The wife of the publisher of trhe Czech paper here, missing since Saturday, was found dead in a frozen food locker at the home by a daughter.
       
      Mrs. Josephine Slovak, 54, wife of W. J. Slovak, head of the Svoboda publishing Co., disappeared from home Saturday but the family did not become worried until late in the afternoon.
       
      About 10 a.m. yesterday, a daughter, Delores, preparing for the noon meal, went into the garage, where the deep freeze is kept, to get some food.
       
      When she opened the door to the big box she found her mother in it, frozen.  The lock was off and down in the box, officers said.

      *****************************************************************
      Justice of peace M. L. Hansard ruled late yesterday that Mrs. Josephine Slovak, 54, whose frozen body was found in a home freezer, committed suicide by suffocation and freezing.
       
      The body of Mrs. Slovak, wife of an El Campo newspaper publisher, was found Monday in the freezer at the home of a daughter.  She had been missing from her home since Saturday.
       
      Hansard said that Mrs. Slovak had been grieving over the loss of a son, Bill Slovak, in Germany during World War II.
       
      Survivors include her husband, W. J. Slovak who publishes a Czech newspaper here, and two daughters, Miss Delores Slovak of El Campo and Mrs. Hugo Bubela of Nada.
