A 66-year-old hoarder — who was a former film and television production designer — was found mummified in her Queens home under a massive pile of garbage, police said.
The woman’s sister told police she had not heard from Evelyn Sakash, who was described as a “heavy hoarder,” since October 2020.
The sister had recently come to New York to find Sakash and hired a cleaning crew to clear out the woman’s house in College Point on 123 Street to see if she was inside, cops said.
The cleaners discovered Sakash’s mummified body around 4:15 p.m. Tuesday under debris in the kitchen, according to police.
No criminality was suspected in her death.
