(Scroll down for video) A dead woman has been discovered in her car after laying there for six years, police in Michigan said.
Pontiac Police said that the body of the woman was degraded in the back of her car in a garage.
No one noticed that she was dead because her bills were paid by direct debit from her checking account and the grass of her property was cut regularly by a neighbor for six years. The woman was found in her Jeep Liberty after her bank account ran out of money and someone was sent to the home to check why the mortgage payments had stopped.
The woman was identified as 49-year-old Pia Davida Farrenkopf. She was found wearing a thick jacket and jeans, which led investigators to believe that she died in the winter.
Police said that suicide by carbon monoxide is the likely cause of death.
