So this weird thing happened about a block from the house I lived in when I was married. The decomposing body of an elderly woman was found after neighbors called requesting a welfare check because the mail, newspapers and weeds were all growing to huge proportions.
It turns out the woman's daughter had been living in the home, as her caretaker, but neighbors say a few months ago the daughter moved out and moved in with some friends in the neighborhood. The friend's asked about her mom and she never gave them any straight answers, but she never checked in on her mom that they knew about so they assumed someone else was taking care of her.
Police are now saying that the woman was dead in the home for months, possibly longer. They had to wear hazmat suits when searching the home over the weekend.
So, my question is... if you stopped showing up for things, stopped coming out of your home and going for walks in your neighborhood. Would you be missed? Do you think anyone would come to check on you?
