42-year-old found 42-years-too-late

Hedviga Golik was reported missing back in 1966. The Croatian woman would have been 84 this year.

No one saw Hedviga leave her home. No one could locate her. So, everyone came to assume that she had simply moved out of her home in Zagreb and left no forwarding address. Her place was left unattended and no one ever moved in.

Hedviga found this week-- 42-years after she was first reported missing.

She was found in her own apartment. Her mummified remains were still sitting in a chair in front of a black and white TV set, with tea cup next to her chair.

It appears that Hedviga made herself a cup of tea back in 1966, sat down to watch TV, and died.

Authorities had broken into the small apartment to find out who owned it. It was then that they found Hedviga's body.

"So far we have no idea how it is possible that someone officially reported missing so long ago was not found before in the same apartment she used to live in." said a police spokesman.

waiting for the cable guy...
