Actress and former Playboy Playmate Yvette Vickers‘ mummified body was found in her Beverly Hills home last week, nearly a year after her death.
Vickers was best known for her bit roles in B-movies of the 1950′s like ‘Attack of the 50-Foot Woman‘ and was the Playboy Playmate in July 1959.
The Los Angeles Times is reporting that Vickers, 82, was not seen for a long time and one of her neighbors, actress Susan Savage, went to check on her after noticing old letters and cobwebs in her mailbox.
Savage said, “The letters seemed untouched and were starting to yellow. I just had a bad feeling.”
After Savage pushed open a barricaded front gate and scaling a hillside, she entered through a broken window after seeing a shock of blond hair, which turned out to be a wig.
Savage said the inside of the house was in disrepair and it was hard to move between the rooms as boxes containing clothes, junk mail and letters formed barriers.
She eventually found Vickers in a room upstairs and while Savage had known the actress for a long time, she said that the remains were unrecognizable.
“We’ve all been crying about this. Nobody should be left alone like that,” Savage said.
The police have said that the body’s mummified state suggests that Vickers could have been dead for close to a year.
The police have also said that while the official cause of death is still to be determined, they do not suspect foul play.
IMDB states that Vickers was divorced twice and she had an on-and-off 15-year relationship with the late actor Jim Hutton, the father of Timothy Hutton.
