California man found in foreclosed house with cats, opossums, raccoon, and mother’s skeleton

Los Angeles police have found the skeleton of an elderly woman, apparently dead for two years, in a foreclosed house where she had lived with her 48-year-old son.

Officials said they were trying to identify the woman they believe was Barbara Hunt, who would have been 86.

Media reports said the woman’s son, Robert Hunt, was at the home in North Hollywood when police arrived but had not been arrested.

The deterioration of the body, which was found on the bed in a back room, made it difficult to determine cause of death Craig Harve, a spokesman for the LA coroner said.

He said the woman was believed to have died in 2006.

Authorities went to the home on Monday evening after a mortgage broker notified them that it would revert to a bank at midnight after going through foreclosure.

Police found Robert Hunt living at the rubbish-filled home with 26 cats, three opossums and a raccoon, according to a report on the LA Daily News website.

California has been hit hard by the national wave of foreclosures – in which mortgage lenders repossess homes because buyers cannot meet their payments – following a slump in the US housing market and the credit market crunch

Nice attempt at deflection. This story is more about this individuals probable mental illness than the current economic climate.

I wonder if the possums and raccoons ate Mom after she died. I probably don't want to know, but that was the first thing that popped into my head after reading this.
