A WOMAN whose mummified body was found in her house in Italy three months after she was reported missing was originally from Morecambe.
Susan Mount, 61, had not been seen since early August. Her best friend is said to have reported her disappearance to police in October.
Her body was discovered after neighbours complained of a smell coming from her studio apartment in Tribiano, a small village near Milan.
Miss Mount had moved to the studio flat in Tribiano several years ago. Police said she was single but was thought to have relatives in England.
Major Giuliano Gerbo, of the paramilitary Carabinieri police, said: “We are trying to trace relatives of Susan Mount who we believe live in England.
“An initial inspection would suggest that she died from natural causes around the time she was last seen alive in August.”
