Christine Lee Walters Bio – Christine Lee Walters Wiki
Authorities are trying to identify a mummified body found by police in the bathtub of a northwestern Arizona home as they investigated a burglary.
Christine Lee Walters is 65 years old.
DETAIL OF INCIDENCE:
Bullhead City police said officers are responding to a burglary around 3:30 a.m. Saturday discovered 65-year-old Christine Lee Walters rummaging through items inside the house.
They said there were “pry marks on the door indicating forced entry into the home” and that Walters had been going inside for days and taking clothing, purses and other items she allegedly planned to sell online.
A woman was arrested for burglarizing a house, and while police were on scene investigating a mummified deceased body…
Police said officers searched the house and found the body in the tub in a natural mummified state, which occurs when a corpse is exposed to arid conditions that typical slow decomposition.
“The deceased body was in a mummified state and is believed to be the homeowner,” police said.
Police said Walters told officers she didn’t know the body was in the house.
It’s unknown how long the body was in the bathtub.
The Mohave County Medical Examiner’s Office was trying to determine the cause of death.
Neighbours told police they believed the house was vacant and that the homeowner may have moved away because she hadn’t been seen for about a year.
“Detectives then served a search warrant into Walters’ residence and in her vehicle and located more items belonging to the victim, including her birth certificate, IRS paperwork, driver’s license, and credit cards,” police said.
Walters was booked into jail on suspicion of two counts of burglary.
Police said they are seeking additional charges after methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia were found in her possession.
It was unclear Thursday if Walters has a lawyer who can speak on her behalf.
