Rest in Peace: Yvette VickersAnother star from Hollywood’s heyday has passed on, albeit in a very curious fashion. Attack of the 50 Foot Woman co-star Yvette Vickers was found dead in her home under some really odd and extremely sad circumstances.

According to the Los Angeles Times Vickers (pictured right), a B-movie actress whose credits include Attack of the Giant Leeches, was found dead last week at her home in L.A.’s Benedict Canyon area. She was 82.

Based on the mummified state of her body, police believe that she could have been dead for nearly a year, the Los Angeles Times reported. Police don’t suspect foul play, but the Los Angeles county coroner’s office will determine the official cause of death.

Her body was discovered by a neighbor, who had gone to check on Vickers after noticing old letters and spiderwebs in her mailbox. The neighbor said Vickers was unrecognizable when she found her.

We here at Dread Central would like to take this time to offer our sincerest condolences to Vickers’ friends, family, and constituents. We’re glad you’re finally at rest. Thanks for the memories.

You're such an inspiration for the ways that I will never, ever choose to be.

    Obviously she didn’t have many friends, family, and constituents that need condolences. People don’t just drop dead for over a year and no one notices. Unpaid bills, utilities, not picking up mail, no phone calls, etc. Something has got to throw up a red flag.

      While this is extremely sad and it took everything I had not to wish the folks who knew her a hearty, fuck you, the fact remains that friends come and go. Most lose touch. I’m sure they’re out there somewhere.

    What a horrible fate. May she rest in peace.
