Actress and former Playboy Playmate Yvette Vickers' mummified body was found in her Beverly Hills home last week, nearly a year after her death.

Vickers was best known for her bit roles in B-movies of the 1950's like 'Attack of the 50-Foot Woman' and was the Playboy Playmate in July 1959.

The Los Angeles Times is reporting that Vickers, 82, was not seen for a long time and one of her neighbors, actress Susan Savage, went to check on her after noticing old letters and cobwebs in her mailbox.

Savage said, "The letters seemed untouched and were starting to yellow. I just had a bad feeling."
