Houston Couple Said There Was Something Amiss with the House
On Tuesday, the authorities managed to conclude the Mary Stewart Cerruti case, the woman who vanished without a trace more than three years ago. The woman’s remains have been found inside the home she shared with her ten cats.
Cerruti’s neighbors declared that the woman lived like a hermit – she was rarely seen outside the house, save for a community meeting she attended in 2012, where she voted against a homing plan. The woman was so bent in shutting herself from the rest of the world that she covered all the house’s windows with wallpaper.
Her neighbors figured that something was wrong when they saw the correspondence piling in front of Cerruti’s front door, in addition to a broken window. More than three years have passed since the authorities failed to track down the missing woman.
The case seemed to have gone cold until a couple decided to move into Cerruti’s home. According to the new owners, they knew that something was amiss when they’ve begun discovering things resembling bones inside the home.
When the authorities arrived and searched the house, they’ve discovered what befell to the gentle 61-year-old hermit. While she was cleaning the attic, the woman slipped through one of the rotten floorboards, fell into the narrow space between the walls, where she passed away.
The authorities had a hard time identifying the remains, as the woman’s cats and mice that nestled in the home picked clean the woman’s body.
