Woman, Dead for 7 Years, Found in House With Son

March 06, 1994| Associated Press

BOISE, Ida. — An elderly woman lay dead on her living room couch for as long as seven years while her son continued to live in the house, officials say.

Georgia Farrell probably died in 1987 at age 88, the officials said. Her mummified body was discovered Friday when neighbors checked on her son, Robert Farrell.

"She was laying there like she was watching TV, with her head on the pillow," said Ada County Coroner Erwin Sonnenberg. "It appears she died of natural causes, but we're going to do further investigation."
