A burglar got more than he bargained for when he broke into a flat and found the mummified corpse of a woman who had died five years previously. He was so terrified he fled.

“Finding something like that would certainly be frightening,” a police spokesman told The Local on Monday.

Cops were called to the second-floor flat in Hagen, North Rhine-Westphalia by a neighbour who heard the smash of the would-be burglar kicking in the door.

When they went to investigate, they found a rubbish-strewn apartment – and the preserved corpse of the pensioner lying on the floor of the living room next to the television.

An autopsy later showed that the woman had been lying there for five years.

“In a warm, dry building a body can mummify itself,” the spokesman said.

“It would smell though,” he added.

The woman’s rent and bills had been automatically paid from account, and “clearly no-one had noticed she had disappeared,” :huh: a police statement said.

An autopsy on Monday morning revealed that the woman was 66 when she died. The cause of death is not known, but police confirmed the corpse showed no signs of violence.

No one noticed that she had no been seen or heard from in 5 years, and the neighbors only rang police because they heard someone breaking into the house? They did not notice the smell?

Old women smell, alive or dead.

True, but not as bad as a decomping body...

Maybe she should have been on Facebook.

That's so sad. Not missed for five years?
