Michigan woman dead for six years found only after money runs out
For six years the bills were paid, the grass was cut and no one noticed the body of the dead woman sitting in the back seat of a car in a garage of a residential Pontiac, Michigan neighborhood.
Her mummified body was finally found this week by someone dispatched to check on the property that fell into foreclosure after the money ran out of her account and the mortgage payments stopped, police said on Friday.
"It is kind of the perfect storm for a mysterious set of circumstance and a challenge because of the extreme degradation of the body," Oakland County Sheriff Michael Bouchard said in a telephone interview.
The woman has not yet been positively identified, but it is thought she is a person who stopped working in 2008 and had set up all of her bills to be paid automatically from her bank account.
She is also thought to have worked as a contractor in the financial department for a major automobile company.
A neighbor cut her lawn, her mail was sent to the post office and there was no family living nearby, Bouchard said.

Did anyone deposit any of her government checks, pension checks or unemployment?
Always sad to read these stories -— not because they died but because they were so alone that no one noticed.
I’m surprised the IRS didn’t find her before anybody else.
Nah —I remember one London, England case from 3 years ago where the stiff was in there for OVER TWENTY YEARS..!!
The mail-slot was up high, and the pile still hadn’t reached that high.
Faithful Democrat voter for six years!
A good reason not to sign up for automatic bill pay.
“Did anyone deposit any of her government checks, pension checks or unemployment?”
Maybe she had those directly deposited into the same account mentioned here.
Anyone think that they should pull the voting records for her district and see if she has been ‘waking up’ to do her civic duty??
a neighbor cut her lawn for the six years that she’s been dead?
True - how about filing taxes?
Five years of not paying property taxes and no sheriff knocked on the door?
This woman sitting there is like Rod Taylor unseen in the time machine in his house.
Mine is paid via an escrow account attached to my mortgage- as long as I pay my mortgage, I’m paying My property taxes too. As well as my homeowners insurance.
I bet she had an impressive stack of junk mail at the PO. I wonder if they needed to lease a storage unit for it?
