Michigan Woman’s Automated Car Payment Kept Her Death Hidden for Six Years!
Holy crap, Batman!
I'm turning off all my auto-pay services RIGHT NOW!
A woman died at least SIX YEARS AGO a couple of hours from Grand Rapids, in Pontiac, and no one noticed because her car payment was automatically drafted from her account. The neighbors thought she was just really quiet and traveled a lot.
Hell, one of them MOWED HER LAWN regularly, to keep the house looking tidy! While the woman was sitting dead in the back seat of her car in the garage! This is horrifying!
It wasn't until the bank account ran out of money, they repoed her house, and it sat empty and unowned. Finally someone was sent over by the bank to repair a hole in the roof this week, and her body was discovered. The key was half-in the ignition, and a mummified body was in the back seat.
The police believe the woman is the owner of the house, Pia Farrenkopf. She would have been 49 this year.
Neighbors said she traveled a lot, and would often go to Germany. Her employer said he hadn't seen her since 2008.
Please, check up on people every once in a while!
Small request: If I haven't been seen in a week, please come looking for me. Don't wait SIX FREAKING YEARS!
