In 2006, a London Housing unit started the process of repossessing an apartment and made a grim discovery. Lying on the sofa was the skeleton of a 38-year-old woman who had been dead for almost 3 years. The TV was still on, and a pile of Xmas presents lay on the floor. Dishes were heaped in the sink and a pile of mail was behind the front door. Food in the fridge was had expired in 2003. The body was so decomposed it could only be identified by dental records. Her name was Joyce Vincent.
