BBC Online : An elderly Australian woman lay dead in her home for around seven years before her body was found, an inquest was told on Thursday. Police found Natalie Wood’s body in her Sydney home in July 2011. She is believed to have died in 2004. Police said she may have died after a fall, but the amount of time since her death made it “forensically almost impossible” to determine her death. Ms Wood has been dubbed “the woman Sydney forgot” by local media. She was born in 1924. A police officer told the Glebe Coroners Court that Ms Wood “kept to herself… it got to a point she answered the door with a special knock”.
