Decomposing body believed that of Playmate and B-movie actress Yvette Vickers found in LA home.

Ahem… Seems that Ms. Vickers must have died sometime in the last year or so. A neighbor finally decided to investigate after noticing cobwebs in Vickers’ mailbox.

From a CBS News article:

Los Angeles County coroners are trying to determine whether the body, which had gone undiscovered for anywhere from several months to a year, is that of the 82-year-old Kansas City, Mo., native.

Ms. Vickers was a B movie actress, most notably in the cult classic Attack of the 50 Foot Woman. She was also a Playboy Playmate – July 1959.

As weird as this may be, further reflection makes one feel a bit sad. This woman evidently had no one on this earth who cared at all about her. She died truly alone. Sad.

Later…

    I think what’s more sad is that she had to live the last part of her life alone.

    Nice design change Eric. The other was harder to read and not as “perky” looking.

    • Hi RK! Yeah, the darker themes are good looking, but harder to read, particularly for over-45 eyes.

      As to poor Yvette… who knows, really. She may have been the queen of all bitches for all we know. Still, it is sad for someone to have been so alone. It’s not at all uncommon in this world either.

      Thanks for stopping by and commenting.
