CHESHIRE, Conn. - Police in Connecticut say a hoarder has died after the cluttered first floor of her home collapsed into the basement.
Authorities say 66-year-old Beverly Mitchell was found dead in her Cheshire home Saturday, a day after a postal carrier called police to request a welfare check because her mail was piling up.
Cheshire police tell the Record-Journal that the first floor appeared to collapse under the weight of clutter stacked to the ceiling, and Mitchell was found in the basement under a pile of debris.
Authorities cut their way into the home through a side wall. State officials also responded to the scene.
The chief medical examiner's office will be performing an autopsy.
