Woman Died Watching TV In 1966, Found 42 Years Later, Probably Stunk In The Interim

A woman in Croatia died in 1966 while watching television in her apartment, and was just now discovered.

Hedviga Golik made herself a cup of tea and sat down to watch some television in her hometown of Zagreb, Croatia. Sadly, she died in her chair. This was in 1966. She was just found, 42 years later, in her time capsule mausoleum where she's been sitting ever since. She never finished her tea.

Apparently her apartment was never checked, despite a missing person report being filed when she went missing. Only recently did the authorities break into the unit and discover the woman while trying to determine who owned the place.

Damn, that's freaking nuts! I can't imagine how the place went unchecked for 42 years. It had to have stunk like shit for a good long while. Kind of like my place. Isn't that right, Grandma? Grandma? Awh, shit.

Thanks Shawn, say, you mind calling the funeral parlor?

There are Comments.
  • MESS @ the Madonna shade on this page lmao

  • What. The. Fuck.

    Spontaneous combustion? And how does an apartment go unchecked for 42 years? The real estate industry in Croatia must be the pits.

  • Isn't it bizarre? They said the entire apartment was like a museum - frozen in the 60s and she had a cup of tea next to her she brewed and never finished.

    I read another one about a guy who hung himself in his apartment and no one noticed for SEVEN YEARS (poor bastard). And while he was in there the bank repossessed the flat he was in and auctioned it off to the highest bidder without anyone ever checking inside. The new resident moved in and discovered his fossilized remains and promptly screamed to the high heavens. Can you even imagine?! What a mess.

    It is bizarre. The poor woman must have been some spinster who never bothered to get a couple of cats. I am still amazed by the fact that the apartment remained sealed for so long.

    Speaking of bizarre, I was looking for a rental place in San Francisco and came across this creepy place called Presidio apartments or something like that. The building is really fancy but it used to be some public health hospice. They even have a mass grave in the backyard. Reminded me of American Horror Story: Asylum. And yet the rent for two bedrooms is like 4K. Tawtally haunted IMO.

  • The person who found it even said they found mail dated from the 60s on her kitchen table & said that the dust and cobwebs where so thick that it was like a layer of ash in the whole place. Croatia is some flop of a country smh

    No offense to the guy but if nobody gave a dam about him being missing for 7 years, that just means he was a jobless loser with deplorable social skills. How can somebody go missing for years and not 1 person report or notice it?

  • Adios Bitches

    He may have been a loner who lost touch with his family. That's how some people become homeless. It is pretty sad tbh.

  • I think it's kinda sad :( He was probably a loner and a weirdo. It was over in France and was a Cambodian immigrant. Apparently the only thing that ever made anyone even think to check was when all his automatic rent payments stopped coming in (like 5 years in since he ran out of money)...but still no one actually went inside he just got auctioned off by a bank thinking the apartment was empty. How pitiful.

    Kinda sad. Probably Felipe in 8 years tbh

  • probably you NOW <3

  • LoveTheWayILie

    No way, I have Ferrer come over daily to scrub my bathroom and lick my shoes clean <3

  • Lati-Khaleesi

    Your craze . Your Ferrers servant you wipe his ass when he goes to bathroom

  • This is probably what happened to QUEEN_Perry and Moon13

  • Adios Bitches

    LMAO... I almost peed when I read this comment. The flop formerly known as Moon13 is always posting on some third rate Brazilian forum.

  • Actually, Moon13 is on this flop portuguese sight

  • Rihanna Del Rey
