A Viennese woman lived with the mummified remains of her dead aunt for more than a year, police said Wednesday. Officials said the remains of the 96-year-old aunt were discovered late Tuesday in the apartment the two women shared, and that a preliminary investigation indicated the elderly woman died in August 2006. Her niece, described only as a 52-year-old, was taken to a psychiatric hospital for examination, police said in a statement. Investigators planned to conduct an autopsy on the body to determine if any foul play was involved. Police did not specify how the body came to be mummified.
