‘Gran’ dead in bed
A 90-YEAR-OLD WOMAN, whose skeletal remains were discovered by police in her home on Friday, might have been dead for about two years.
Police made the shocking discovery when they accompanied a relative to Muriel Proverbs’ residence at Fairview, Christ Church, where they found her remains on a floor in a rear bedroom, still robed in a faded red shirt.
Eyewitnesses said the cops had to break down the front door after they received no response to their persistent knocking.
Pension cheques and utility bills dating back to 2013 were found in a huge heap.
The family member also reported to the police that she had not seen Proverbs, affectionately known as “Mu Mu”, for two years.
The MIDWEEK NATION was reliably informed that this was not the first time that police had visited the old woman’s home to check up on her.
