The body of Yvette Vickers, a former playboy playmate was found severely decomposed in her Beverly Hills home this week. A neighbour of her's had claimed that the B-Movie actress had not been seen outside her home since the Summer.
It was this neighbour (Susan Savage) who noticed cobwebs forming on the Ms Vickers' letterbox. There she found the cordless phone off the hook and the electric heater still on. She claimed the body of her neighbour was barely recognisable.
Coroners have yet to conclusively identify the body of Ms Vickers at this stage. However, police have stated that the body could have been there anywhere from a couple of months to a year. Her death is not being treated as suspicious.
