        Actress and former Playboy Playmate Yvette Vickers' mummified body was found in her Beverly Hills home last week, nearly a year after her death.

        Vickers was best known for her bit roles in B-movies of the 1950's like 'Attack of the 50-Foot Woman' and was the Playboy Playmate in July 1959.

        The Los Angeles Times is reporting that Vickers, 82, was not seen for a long time and one of her neighbors, actress Susan Savage, went to check on her after noticing old letters and cobwebs in her mailbox.

        Savage said, "The letters seemed untouched and were starting to yellow. I just had a bad feeling."

        After Savage pushed open a barricaded front gate and scaling a hillside, she entered through a broken window after seeing a shock of blond hair, which turned out to be a wig.

        Savage said the inside of the house was in disrepair and it was hard to move between the rooms as boxes containing clothes, junk mail and letters formed barriers.

        She eventually found Vickers in a room upstairs and while Savage had known the actress for a long time, she said that the remains were unrecognizable.

        "We've all been crying about this. Nobody should be left alone like that," Savage said.

        The police have said that the body's mummified state suggests that Vickers could have been dead for close to a year.

        The police have also said that while the official cause of death is still to be determined, they do not suspect foul play.

        How sad to go unnoticed for so long.

        I don't understand how things like this could happen. Didn't she have any family or friends? Or even the mailman who continued to deliver mail that was never being picked up.

        She had to have a electric bill, gas bill etc. There really needs to be a some type of red flags and laws implemented to prevent this from happening to people.

        What a beautiful woman she was. I am oldies movie buff but i don't recognize her name nor pic.

        The whole thing sounds a little odd to me. How sad that she had no one.

        What a very sad story that is.  It amazes me that this could have gone on for a whole year without her being found or someone noticing they had not seen her.  How awful.

        By googling her name I didn't find any references to children, only "at least" 2 marriages. I would assume if she had no husband or offspring to take care of the financials, she probably had all necessary bills automatically debited from her bank account. She may have been slowly turning into a recluse which at her age wouldn't have been surprising. We only know what the news articles are saying NOW, not what her life and daily routine had been like the months/years preceding her death, so it seems like a shock to us. It is sad but unfortunately all too common for the elderly to be put on the backburner. Plus if she hadn't been a Playmate/actress we wouldn't have heard about it at all.

        Very sad indeed.  Not only to die alone but to mummify with nodoby knowing.

        Awful anyone has nobody to care about them.

        Ahhh...such a heart breaking story...
        Can't believe not even one person wondered her well being.
        Don't matter if she was under the bright spotlight once but in the end, she had a lonely journey.
