    Woman sat dead in front of TV for 42 years...

    WTF?!? I'm assuming she had no family or landlord checking in on her?

    Woman sat dead in front of TV for 42 years.

    May 16 2008 By Donna Watson

    The remains of a woman have been found sitting in front of her TV - 42 years after she was reported missing.

    Hedviga Golik, who was born in 1924, had apparently made herself a cup of tea before sitting in her favourite armchair in front of her black and white television.

    Croatian police said she was last seen by neighbours in 1966, when she would have been 42 years old.

    Her neighbours thought she had moved out of her flat in the capital, Zagreb.

    But she was found by police and bailiffs who had broken in to help the authorities establish who owned the flat.

    A police spokesman said: "So far, we have no idea how it is possible that someone officially reported missing so long ago was not found before in the same apartment she used to live in."

    "When officers went there, they said it was like stepping into a place frozen in time."

    "The cup she had been drinking tea from was still on a table next to the chair she had been sitting in and the house was full of things no one had seen for decades. Nothing had been disturbed for decades, even though there were more than a few cobwebs in there."

    Neighbours were shocked by the discovery.

    Jadranka Markic was nine when Hedviga "vanished".

    She said: "I still remember her. She was a quiet woman who kept herself to herself but was polite. We all thought that she had just moved out and gone to live with relatives."

    I'm surprised the infamous odor didn't start to raise some suspicions. But the more you think of it...how many years have most of us been sitting dead in front of a tv?

    She must not have had any family looking for her. How could her neighbors not smell anything amiss?

    I just don't get why the police wouldn't check out her home first if she had been reported missing. That makes absolutely zero sense to me. A decomposing corpse sure as shit should have been noticed by someone because of the odour it would give off.

    When I saw the title of this thread I immediately feared the great CSPAN conspiracy had claimed yet another victim.

    Who was paying her bills? Wouldn't she have owed either rent or taxes?

    That damn Lawrence Welk show sure can be addicting.

    Yes, it was still in the "on" position, but the tube had long since burned out. Apparently, she was a big fan of the Ed Sullivan Show, as it was circled in her TV Guide beside her, dated 1966.

    Maybe she had a sugar daddy?

    That is unreal. How do police not check her residence when she was reported missing?
