Body in Flat Goes Undiscovered for 8 Years!!


Wednesday, July 06, 2011 » 11:55am
Skeletal remains believed to be those of an elderly woman last seen in 2003 have been found in an inner Sydney unit.

Police found the remains on the floor in an upstairs bedroom of the Surry Hills home on Tuesday at noon.

A relative of the elderly woman told police she had not been seen since 2003.

The remains have not been identified, but the death is not believed to have been suspicious.

The woman would have turned 87 in August, police say.

A coronial report will be prepared.

Acting Superintendent Zoran Dzevlan of Surry Hills Local Area Command said it was sad the woman died without anybody noticing.

'This serves as a reminder for people to keep a neighbourly eye on those who live in their area, especially the elderly,' he said in a statement.

Reminds me of the skeleton under the busy rail bridge at South Yara station that was assumed to be some homeless person. From what I remember it was estimated that the remains went undiscovered for 3 or 4 years...

I guess she must have had the rent paid for 8 years? Unless she owned the property. Thats hard to believe.

Heard similar stories where the individual had bills paid through a bank account, and nobody checked until the money ran out.
