The body of a 70-year-old woman was found at her home in Italy two years after her death.

Marinella Beretta lived by herself in a home in Prestino near Lake Como in the northern area of the country.

The elderly woman’s body, which the outlet described as “mummified,” was discovered sitting at a table last week.

The Como fire brigade stopped by the home after concerned residents said a tree fell in her garden, Como City Hall press officer Francesca Manfredi said.

The woman had not been seen by surrounding neighbours “for at least two and a half years”. Those around her had assumed she moved away when the COVID-19 pandemic first struck the country.

In a statement, Manfredi said that Beretta’s cause of death is currently unknown. The outlet noted that a medical examiner determined she died at some point near the end of 2019, “based on the extent of decomposition.”

Italian authorities found no evidence at the scene of Beretta’s death to suggest foul play was involved.
