Woman Found Dead in Garage Six Years Later

Night Shadows on Garage_sm

A woman’s mummified body was found in her garage at least six years after her death.

Nobody in her quiet neighborhood in Pontiac, Michigan, noticed anything unusual.  Her bills were on auto-pay until her bank account ran dry.  After the bank holding the woman’s mortgage foreclosed on the house, a worker who was sent to repair a hole in the roof made the grisly discovery.  The woman’s body was sitting in the backseat of her car with the key halfway in the ignition.
