Voting Records Raise Questions After Mummified Body Found
CBS - Detroit ^ | March 11, 2014

Posted on 03/11/2014 7:09:43 AM PDT by Cincinatus' Wife

Voting records are raising questions amid an investigation into the discovery of a woman’s mummified body in the garage of a foreclosed metro Detroit home.

The body found last Wednesday in Pontiac is that of Pia Farrenkopf — according to her sister, Paula Logan. Authorities investigating the case haven’t released her name, but they have said that the woman apparently died in 2008 at the age of 49.

According to a report in the Detroit Free Press, records show Farrenkopf as voting in the November 2010 gubernatorial election. Officials say, however, that it may represent an administrative error. Oakland County Sheriff Mike Bouchard says the information must be checked out.

Farrenkopf’s body was found March 5 in the back seat of her Jeep Liberty, parked in the attached garage of her home in the 1600 block of Savanna, near Walton Boulevard and Silver Lake Road in Pontiac. The discovery was made just after 5 p.m. by a contractor who was working at the home, which is going through foreclosure.

The dead voting in Detroit... like that's news.

Now if she had voted Republican, THAT would be news.

, that it may represent an administrative error.

One that is being repeated millions of times in all states across the Marxist/Democrat spectrum.

This is why Democrats do not want Voter ID.

Yep... probably a half hour before the polls close, a list is generated of all who have not yet shown up to vote, and those people all suddently vote in that last half hour.

how about “isolated incident”

or “rogue worker”

absentee ballots are a guarantee of fraud. Early voting means democrats know what their margin of fraud has to be.

Gah-ahead! Take a shot at it. Whatdya think?

It would not be beyond the realm of believability that these “administrative errors” are tied to voters who haven’t voted in several elections (perhaps from the belief of “administrators” that the voter has moved but they’re still listed on the voting rolls - wouldn’t want that “free” vote to go inactive!).

People have been trying to clear these lists of these dead and moved voters - I’ve read of successful campaigns to do this in FL and TX.

You could be a registered Republican your whole life——but once you die in corrupt Detroit (or corrupt Chicago, and environs) you are now a registered Democrat.

And this sister never bothered to go knock on her door for six years? Someone has some splainin to do.

“PONTIAC (WXYZ) - “I think there was foul play. I think someone might have been in that garage,” said Paula Logan about the mysterious death of her sister Pia Farrenkopf.

While investigators are still trying to find dental records to identify the “mummified” body, it’s believed to be Farrenkopf who, according to Oakland County Sheriff investigators, was last seen alive in September 2008.

Logan, who still lives in Massachusetts where they grew up, says her sister would have been 42-years-old at the time of her death, and she says Pia would not have taken her own life.

The body was discovered Wednesday by a contractor working for the mortgage company that had foreclosed on the property.

Neighbors thought Farrenkopf, a woman who traveled a lot and preferred to keep to herself, had just moved away. Some people in the neighborhood of well-maintained homes continued to care for Farrenkopf’s lawn.

Logan says all of her siblings led rather separate lives and rarely kept in touch with each other. She admits that their mother, who passed away a few years ago, went about 30 years without talking to one of her children. ................”

Something’s wrong. Keys were in the ignition but the ignition was off. She didn’t die from CO. They found her in the back seat. I hope they can determine a cause of death. Forty-two is young.

Since she traveled for business, she’d arranged to have her bills paid directly from her banking account.

When the money ran out, the bank moved in.

Sad to think no one cared about her and that her body sat in that garage year after year.

I’d be asking the neighbor[s] who was keeping her lawn mowed all those years, if they knew anything about this.

Very odd.

My grandfather in Missouri died in 1986 at age 99 and was a lifelong republican. I would put odds on that he has voted democrat in every election in Missouri since 1986.

Similar story a few years ago, also out of the Detroit area.

Older guy, passed away in his easy chair while watching TV. They found his mummified remains several years later, still in the chair. The TV apparently ran and ran until the picture tube blew.

It is sad how often no one seems to notice nor care.

and she says Pia would not have taken her own life.

How would Sis know that, since Sis apparently had no contact or attempts to contact Pia for at least 6 years?

The other strange thing is the neighbor maintaining the lawn. Why would that not raise suspicions by the neighbor? Was he/she getting autopayments to keep the lawn mowed?

That won’t work here. Americans demand that the election be called 10 seconds after the polls close.

Oakland County Undersheriff Mike McCabe told reporters that officers visited Farrenkopf’s home for a “wellness check” in 2007, but found “nothing out of the ordinary.”

That was because she was still alive at that point.

As mentally paralyzed as I was after my husband's death, I did one thing in his honor almost immediately.

I removed him from the voter rolls. I wanted him to rest in peace without the thought of someone voting in his name for Obama in 2012.

Another media account claims the woman’s step-father attempted to contact her when he married her mother. His calls went unanswered.

You can’t reach your own (pick one): daughter, step-daughter or sibling for six years and no one bothers to go to Pontiac and knock on the door?

One more thought: First, according to WXYZ-TV, the woman’s mail was sent to a post office box. And we’ll assume the rental for the box was automatically debited from her account, along with the rest of her bills. Six years worth of mail would be quite a stack—boxes and boxes is more like it. Yet, no one at the post office or the UPS store found it unusual that her mail went unclaimed for all those years.

(((
Based on another piece I saw on this recently, it appears that she and her family had not spoken for years.

I guess it’s odd for those of us who have close family ties. For example, I still have 7 of my 8 siblings living, and there is no way any of us could go unaccounted for for more than a few days.

She probably paid for the PO box a year in advance. Most likely when the rent on the PO box ran out the post office rented it to someone else. Her mail either was thrown out or as Elvis sang “return to sender, address unknown”.

Thank ya, thank ya very much.

I think it will be found that suicide from ingesting something was the cause. The only hole in my hypothesis is why she chose the back seat of her car.

If she kept her car in an attached garage it would not be unreasonable to keep the keys in the ignition.

IMO, it is not at all odd for a neighbor to go over onto her property while he is doing his own, especially if the lots are not big. The neighbors knew that she traveled a lot.

***
Neighbors knew that she traveled a lot. If the yards are not large, it is not strange that a neighbor would just keep on going into her yard as he was doing his own. Just being neighborly and also keeping his neiborhood from looking messy.
