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.

    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.
