The body of his 41-year-old girlfriend, Elizabeth Perrault of Burnsville, was found wrapped in a robe and blanket, encased in a 500-pound chunk of ice. The body was sticking out of a holding pond.

Friends reported her missing on Feb. 22, when she didn't return repeated phone calls for days.  The criminal complaint, however, states Perrault actually disappeared around Nov. 1 of last year.  Her parents also asked police to do a welfare check in December.
