Woman arrested for living with mother’s mummified body wrapped in newspaper and bed

A woman who has been missing for more than a year has been found dead in a mummified condition at her daughter’s home in Lincoln, Washington County, Arkansas.

Gloria Pike, 72, who was battling stage 4 breast cancer, has not been heard from for a year. Her brother, George Menes, reported her missing on July 21 this year. However, when police questioned the victim’s daughter, Jenny Pike, she told them her mother was not missing, but with a friend. When pressured to reveal more information, she could not reveal the friend’s name or where the two were.
