Mummified Woman Found In Car In Garage
She had been dead for approximately six years.
A worker hired by the bank to do repairs on a woman’s foreclosed home, discovered the woman’s mummified body this week, sitting in the backseat of her car, parked in the garage. The key was halfway in the ignition.
Authorities say they believe the woman died at least six years ago. They’re still trying to figure out what happened.
“I’ve been doing this 37 years. Never seen anything like this before,” said Undersheriff Mike McCabe of Oakland County, Michigan, just outside Detroit.
The woman, who authorities aren’t identifying until they’ve informed her family, paid her bills from her bank account through auto-pay, according to McCabe. At some point, her bank account ran dry. The bills stopped being paid. After its warnings went unanswered, the bank holding the mortgage foreclosed on the house, which eventually led to the discovery of her body.
