Attack of the 50 Foot Woman star found mummified

Yvette Vickers, best known for starring in such cult classic as Attack of the 50-Foot Woman and Attack of the Leaches, has been found dead in circumstances you would expect to come straight out of one of her B movies. She fell afoul of the old tradition of bizarre celebrity deaths (a la Elvis, David Carradine). Those that live in the public spotlight seem to die in situations that merit a spotlight and Yvette Vickers is one of those people.

After noticing yellowing letters hanging out of her cobweb infested letter box Vickers neighbour, Susan Savage, decided to see if her elderly neighbour was alright. Susan took it upon herself to break into her very private, very elderly neighbour’s house. She pushed her way in through the front gate, climbed up a hillside and eventually got inside the house via a broken window. After scaring herself half to death with a wig she mistook for Vickers she wandered around only to scare herself even more with the discovery of the mummified, yes mummified, body of Yvette Vickers.

The time of death has not yet been established for the former Playboy Playmate but the police have said that she could have been festering for anything up to a year. Oh dear oh dear…
