So Sad! Former Playboy Playmate Yvette Vickers' Mummified Body Discovered

yvette vickers mummified body found

So sad and disturbing.

Former Playboy playmate/B-movie actress Yvette Vickers was found dead at her Los Angeles home last week.

Based on the mummified state of her body, police believe she could have been there for months, or even close to a year.

No word yet on an official cause of death, but foul play is not suspected.

Vickers' body was discovered by actress neighbor Susan Savage, who became suspicious when she saw yellowing letters and cobwebs in Vickers' mailbox.

Susan entered her neighbor's home, which was "in disrepair," and she found the former Playboy playmate's unrecognizable body on the floor.

Here's what Susan had to say about Yvette Vickers:

"She kept to herself, had friends and seemed like a very independent spirit. To the end she still got cards and letters from all over the world requesting photos and still wanting to be her friend."

"We've all been crying about this. Nobody should be left alone like that."

Such an incredibly sad story. We're just glad her body was finally discovered so she can be properly laid to rest.

    The saddest part is that no one noticed. It's too bad she didn't have any friends or family to check in on her. Poor thing.

    Damn how sad is it to know that for 4 months to a year not one person came by looking for her… I'd think If someone wasn't returning my calls for that long I'd be worried enough to stop by their house.. truly sad :(

    Seems like PlayBoy destroys lives!

    Its the mailman's fault, he/she should have noticed that the mail wasnt getting picked up and that something was wrong.

    after reading more details about this.. something seems fishy.. It was reported that a small space heater was on… Umm idk abt yall but where I'm from if you miss paying your electric bill for 2 months.. they shut your service off… Something else has to be up.. Someone mustve been still living there with the body or something…

    It is not sad, she was 85 and lived a long life. Get over it, people die much worst deaths everyday.

    The tragedy of it all is that no one even noticed for so long.

    That is sad…I wonder if she was sick and how old was she. Just terrible no one should die or have their body found like that.

    Clearly none of her "friends" were real friends that her body was left there for months or a year. SOMEONE would have went to go check on her at some point after not hearing from her for so long.

    I think the same would happen to me if i was home alone..all her friends must have died

    Re: MsJules – Good point. However, She could have had her electric fixed where it was automatically withdrawed from her checking account on a monthly basis.

    wow, this is so sad. She must have some huge mailbox though, for mail to accumulate for over 4 months.

    If she was 85, maybe she outlived all of her friends.

    So this neighbour only just noticed last week?? How long had she lived there? Poor woman…upto a year and no-one cared… How sad!!

    Re: netgear – What has age got to do with it? The fact that someone went unnoticed for a few months to a year….THAT is what is sad….Show some respect!

    Re: @v@ – that may be the case but obviously not her neighbour….so how come she didn't notice before last week??

    Re: iloverickymartin – Ah yes- you are correct I hadn't even considered that! Technology.. gets me everytime hehe. Someone else was probably in charge of her finances and paying her mortgage and stuff- maybe a benefactor? Who knows.. It still seems as though something else was up. Or maybe I'm just a skeptic hehe

    strange - I think more info is needed. Hopefully cops will actually investigate to find out why the mail carrier didn't report her mail not being picked up for 4-12 months. You'd think they would have some responsibility in this. Especially if the letters in her mailbox were yellow with age!!

    Re: Electro_storm – I hear her favourite vegetable was carrots… carrots destroy lives too!

    Re: Babymama81 – You'd at least think the postie would get a clue. I know I don't see my neighbor for weeks, different schedules, and our mail goes inside a box so noticing might be tricky unless you got a lot of mail.
