Mummified body found; 6 years dead, but managed to vote in 2010

A Michigan woman died nearly six years ago and no one noticed until the bank account that was automatically paying her bills ran out. Then the story got even stranger.

Pia Farrenkopf had an agreement with her mail carrier in Pontiac not to leave mail at her home, because she frequently traveled for business and took care of her bills online, according to the Detroit Free Press.

But now it appears that Oakland County voting records show Farrenkopf voted in the November 2010 gubernatorial election.

The dead woman has not been positively identified by the medical examiner’s office, and the city clerk said the vote could possibly have been an administrative error.

Officials are still trying to determine the cause of death of the woman who was found in her car inside the garage, but they said no foul play is suspected.
