Mummified body was woman from Morecambe

A WOMAN whose mummified body was found in her house in Italy five months after she was last seen alive was originally from Morecambe, according to Italian police.

Susan Mount, 61, had not been seen since early August.

Her body was discovered after neighbours complained of a strong smell coming from her studio apartment in Tribiano, a small village near Milan.

Firefighters made the grim discovery after being authorised to break in.

Police said she was single but was thought to have relatives in England.

Anyone with information should contact Lancashire police on 101 or anonymously via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
