^ i thought mummification was just when the body sort of preserves itself and goes all hard, and all the organ removing is just the egyptian ritual part of mummification. (aside from the point- how is it possible to pull out the brian through the nose?!)

if the woman was mummified would she have had her organs removed like her heart, lungs, brain and liver i think. becuase thats what she would of had the go through for proper mummification.

Neighbors Mistake Dead Woman for Halloween Decoration

A Delaware woman committed suicide by hanging herself from a tree, and her neighbors drove right by. Apparently, they thought she was a Halloween decoration... and she thought nobody cared about her when she was alive!


In Frederica, Delaware, on late Tuesday night, a 42-year-old woman committed suicide by HANGING herself from a large tree branch about 15 feet above the ground.

The woman killed herself in a very public place, but as residents in the neighborhood drove by, they figured her body was a HALLOWEEN DECORATION and just KEPT ON DRIVING. The first people noticed her around 7:30 A.M. on Wednesday morning, but no one called the police until 10:55 A.M.!

That is just SICK!

probably was cashing in on social security checks. Not to mention the caregiver was able to continue living there, talk about job security.

Ewwww...What a creepy friken story. They should turn the house into a museum exhibit & leave the mummified body there as found in front of the TV set! They could then charge admission, make a fortune, donate the money to the couch potato victims of excess television watching!... ;-)

Of course someone normal would notice if the woman living upstairs stopped living for 2 years.
