A woman was found dead on Saturday by authorities after being searched for since Thursday after a mailman had requested a welfare check seeing that her mail was piling up.

Authorities responded to the request, not finding the woman, identified as Beverly Mitchell, and assuming she simply wasn't home. Officials reported that her house was filled with stacks of clutter both to the ceiling and waist-high in some areas.

Police did not even realize that the woman's 1st floor had collapsed until Saturday, when they discovered her body amongst a sea over clutter.
