Woman discovers grandson's mummified remains in attic 2 years after he disappeared
A Pennsylvania woman discovered the mummified remains of her grandson in their home two years after the young man vanished, finding his remains in her attic after hearing "a thump," according to reports.
DyQuain Rogers, 21, was last seen alive on November 1, 2014, when he left his and his grandmother's Erie County home with nothing but his backpack after receiving a phone call, his grandmother Zanobia Richmond, 66, told police at the time, the Erie Times-News reported.
He left behind his new cellphone, his wallet and his keys, his grandmother said at the time.
Police investigated Rogers' disappearance, searching inside and outside the home, but it was not immediately clear if the attic had been checked, officials said Thursday.
Rogers' whereabouts remained a mystery until Tuesday, when Richmond reportedly made the gruesome find after investigating the thump she heard from the top floor of her home.
