This article was in our local newspaper the other night. The woman involved lived about 50 miles from us?
Hoarder crushed as floor collapsed
A woman who had clutter stacked as high as the ceiling in some areas of her home was crushed to death when a floor collapsed into the basement, medical officials say.
The state chief medical examiner's office said Beverly Mitchell, 66, died of accidental and traumatic asphyxia.
Mitchell's body was found Saturday as crews used a backhoe to remove debris from her home. She may have been dead for more than a week, police said.
Town officials, meanwhile, are determining whether the home is structurally sound.
Authorities have said they believe the first floor collapsed under the weight of all the clutter, which was stacked as high as the ceiling in some places.
Fire Chief Jack Casner said there were holes in the roof, and water may have leaked onto the floor and weakened it.
End of story............I just thought this was too odd not to share. She must have been a real nut, but she didn't deserve to die.
Anyhow, my neighbors and I were discussing it the other day. One of them mentioned that this woman had vanity plates for her car with her initials, BM (for Beverly Mitchell), on them. They said "now who would want a plates with "BM on it? And I said "I would." lol
They do know I have a colostomy, which made it seem even funnier.
