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.
The 54-year-old woman also refused a home search request from police, saying she did not have access to her mother’s bank accounts or credit cards. Authorities eventually received a tip when they submitted Gloria’s bank account records and saw a transaction in Dollar General on July 27, 2021 in Lincoln.
The detectives were issued a search warrant and entered Gionee’s home to search for Gloria’s remains on a bed in the room. The body was mummified, wrapped in newspapers since 2020 and bedridden. Authorities also noted that Jenny’s home was in “pathetic condition” with no running water. The houses also had human mills and buckets of urine. the people. Magazine
Jenny insisted that her mother died of natural causes at the end of 2020, but instead of reporting it, she decided to hide it.

The suspect was arrested earlier this week and is being held at the Washington County Detention Center without bail. He has not yet filed charges. As of Wednesday, it was not clear if he was represented by a lawyer who could comment on the charges against him.
