Mummified Woman Found Inside Parked Car In Garage

Posted: Updated:

PONTIAC, MI (WLNS) - A property management worker was conducting a walk through on a foreclosed home when a body was found in a parked car in the garage.

Police say the body was found in a mummified state in the back seat of a Jeep. The license plate on the Jeep expired in 2008.

It happened in the 1600 block of Savanna in Pontiac.

Police believe the woman found is 49-year-old and her last known address was the house on Savanna. 

The house appeared to have black mold inside and the electricity in the house was still on, but there was no heat.

Deputies spoke to neighbors who said they thought the woman who lived there had moved out of the country more than three years ago because they had not seen her. Neighbors also say the woman kept to herself.

An autopsy was performed on Thursday morning, but the cause of death has not been released.

Police have not released an identity of the woman and they are still investigating at this time.
