The case of a Michigan woman whose mummified body was found years after her death is getting even more bizarre. Apparently, Michigan records show she voted in 2010 -- two years after authorities believe she died.
The Detroit Free Press reported Monday that Pia Farrenkopf voted in that year's gubernatorial election. Authorities have not publicly identified the woman whose body was recently found in a sport utility vehicle parked in the garage of a foreclosed home northwest of Detroit. However, the newspaper reported Farrenkopf owned the home in question, and authorities believe it is her.
It's unclear whether Farrenkopf was actually alive, or someone else voted in her name. County officials also caution that the recorded vote could have been an administrative error
I heard this on Coast tot Coast last night, pretty weird tosay the least. They should provide who she voted for, and whether it was a mail in, or ballot. Did the postman not realize her mail was stacking up. I cant believe she was in the back seat of her car for six years, and no one even noticed her. Its tragic that people are forgotten. I personally think that this story goes much deeper than being reported. How did she vote, Why did she pay her bills for an extended period of time "six years".
Authorities say all signs indicate Farrenkopf likely died in 2008, when she would have been 49. The voting records, though, throw that timeline into question. They state Farrenkopf registered to vote in 2006 and voted for governor in November 2010.
So did she vote Republican or Democrat? I read about the woman's body being found in the garage in our newspaper. I heard I could vote many times by a person who called from the Republican Party during the last presidential election, he didn't give any specifics though.
dead people vote all the time.
even people that have never voted, vote.
Voting records in Oakland County show Farrenkopf, who has not been positively identified by the Medical Examiner’s Office, is shown as voting in the November 2010 gubernatorial election.
Pontiac city records indicate Farrenkopf registered to vote in 2006 and had not voted until 2010, but officials point out that could have been an administrative error and she may not have actually cast a vote.
The city clerk, who was not in that job in 2010, said infrequent voters tend to vote in presidential elections, like 2008, over gubernatorial elections like the one in 2010.
