A Washington state woman who was reported missing was later found dead suffocated under a pile of debris in her home, police said.
Officers found the body of Marie Rose, 62, buried under clothes Thursday, reported KIRO-TV in Seattle. Her husband reported her missing after he couldn’t find her early Thursday morning. Officers found clothing, dishes and boxes crammed from floor to ceiling in every room of the couple’s house.
“In some areas, clothes and debris were piled 6 feet high,” said Police Chief Terry Davenport of the Shelton Police Department. “Officers were having to climb over the top on their hands and knees. In some areas, their heads were touching the ceiling while they were standing on top of piles of debris.”
