NEW MILFORD, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — It took two months for the remains of a suspected hoarder to be found under all the garbage in her northern New Jersey home.
Police in New Milford described 68-year-old Alice Klee’s apartment as a sad situation, with cat urine, feces, garbage and other items piled wall to wall.
Neighbors said they hadn’t seen her since early February. Authorities went to her home and never found her, leading to a missing persons report.
It wasn’t until Klee’s landlord began cleaning out her unit that her partially mummified body was discovered under her own garbage and clothes.
