PONTIAC, Mich. (AP) — Voting records are raising questions amid an investigation into the discovery of a woman’s mummified body in the garage of a suburban Detroit home.
Paula Logan has said the body found last Wednesday in Pontiac is that of Pia Farrenkopf, her sister. Authorities investigating the discovery haven’t released her name, but they have said that the woman apparently died in 2008 at the age of 49.
The Detroit Free Press reports voting records show Farrenkopf as voting in the November 2010 gubernatorial election. Officials say, however, that it may represent an administrative error.
Oakland County Sheriff Mike Bouchard says the information must be checked out.
Neighbors say the homeowner hadn’t been seen in years. A contractor sent by the bank that holds the mortgage discovered the body.
