The niece of a Michigan woman whose body is believed to have been found years after she died has created a “Mummified in Michigan” Facebook page to commemorate her.

Nina Logan, the 19-year-old niece of Pia Farrenkopf, created the page after a mummified body believed to be her aunt was found in the back seat of her car in her garage last week in a Pontiac, Michigan. It is thought she stopped working in 2008 and had set up all of her bills to be paid automatically. It was not clear when she died.

As of Thursday, the page had received about 2,000 likes from people paying their condolences, and questioning how the family could have lost touch with Farrenkopf.
