At some point it’s perfectly acceptable to ask “What the hell is wrong with some people?” A former, Costa Mesa, real estate agent was found to have been driving around with a dead homeless woman in her car for months. I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty sure I’d notice a dead body in the passenger seat of my car.
Well, I did say “pretty sure.”
As things turned out she did notice the corpse but just propped it up in the passenger seat and kept driving. Yeah, I know, that’s exactly what you would’ve done. This is one more reason you and I don’t hang out.
Raquel Maria Dillon, of the Huffington Post reports, no one knows what the heck to do about this.
The car’s driver befriended the homeless woman in a park in nearby Fountain Valley and told her she could sleep in the car. When she found the woman dead in the passenger seat, she was afraid to tell police, Everett said.
The driver is a 57-year-old former real estate agent from Corona del Mar, an upscale beach community, who herself had fallen on hard times and was living with friends, he said.
Authorities have not determined if the driver, whose name has been withheld, will face any charges in the case.
An autopsy showed no signs of trauma. Toxicology reports could take six weeks or more, Everett said.
“We would obviously be looking at what laws deal with the transportation of bodies. Ultimately, this is still an undetermined death,” Beckman said. “There’s still a vast amount of investigation necessary.”
The woman whose car she died in last saw her in December, but it wasn’t immediately clear when she discovered the body, Everett said.
If you’ve ever discovered a dead thing around your house you know the hellacious smell that emanates. How you could drive around for 11 months with that permeating your every pore is beyond me.
On the other hand, maybe the poor driver is reverting back to her childhood and just wanted to spend some quality time with her mummy.
I know. I know. I’m going to hell for that.
