An elderly Michigan woman who died of natural causes last year was reportedly found weeks later, eaten by rats and her dog in a cluttered, filthy home.
Sally Honeycheck, 80, died last November while sitting in a lawn chair in the kitchen of her Detroit home. Weeks later, her cousin Linda Kajma not only discovered Honeycheck’s decaying body but found that the elder secretly lived in a hoarded home, covered in years worth of garbage and feces, according to an in-depth feature by the Detroit Free Press.
Honeycheck’s pet rottweiler was reportedly found deceased in a neighboring room. Kajma told the news outlet that she initially mistook Honeycheck’s body for a Halloween decoration.
