40-Year-Old Mystery Solved By A Man Who Discovered A Body While Cleaning Out His Father’s Attic

A man went into his dad's attic, which was long overdue for a cleaning. He was stunned to find human remains buried there. He immediately called police, and the discovery solved a very old mystery.

The German man, age 33, reported a skeleton he found in his father's attic. The skeleton was under a pile of debris. His father, also unnamed, knew nothing about the skeleton. No one had been in the attic for 40 years, except for the deceased.

Police investigated and found that the body belonged to a woman who had gone missing almost 40 years ago. The 28-year-old woman lived three miles from the place where her body was found. She had psychological problems and had a history of short disappearances.

Authorities do not believe the woman met with any foul play. It appears as though she sought shelter in the empty attic. “We assume she lay down to sleep and froze to death in the attic,” police said.

The woman did have three children who will finally learn their mother's fate; her husband passed away a few years ago.

“A discovery of this type is a very unusual event,” police said in a press conference.
