A woman was found dead in her apartment after she has been laying there for about two years, police in Sweden said.

Kalmar Police said that the woman was found when workers, who came to fix a water leak at the apartment complex, were unable to get into the woman’s apartment.

The workers first tried to contact the 70-year-old woman, but when she did not answer they contact a Debt Collection Agency that gave them permission to enter the apartment.

Once inside, they found that the woman was dead, and appeared to have been left untouched for more than two years.

Neighbors reported that they had not seen the woman for a long time. Her bills were being paid by automatic debits from her bank account.
