    Default This is Heartbreaking

    How could no-one have noticed she was missing since 2003.

    Where the hell are her family and or friends?

    So sad.

    Police discover skeletal remains – Surry Hills #skeletalremains #SurryHills
    .by NSW Police Force on Wednesday, 06 July 2011 at 04:39.

    Police are investigating the discovery of skeletal remains at a residence in Surry Hills yesterday.

    About midday (5 July), police attended the residence on Kippax Street, Surry Hills.

    They were responding to a call from the relative of an elderly woman who said she hasn’t been seen since 2003.

    Upon entering an upstairs bedroom at the residence, police located skeletal remains on the floor.

    The remains have not been formally identified. However, police believe they belong to a woman who would have been 87 next month.

    Police do not believe the death is suspicious.

    A report will be prepared for the information of the Coroner.

    “It’s sad that the woman appears to have died several years ago without anyone noticing,” Acting Superintendent Zoran Dzevlan of Surry Hills Local Area Command said.

    “This serves as a reminder for people to keep a neighbourly eye on those who live in their area, especially the elderly.”

    An optimist sees the glass as half full;
    A realist just finishes the damn thing and refills it.

    Horrible.

    So many of our elderly live alone and have no family or friends. I wish neighbours would care more. So many just don't.

    I guess unpaid bills like electricity would just have the services disconnected after a while.
