The decomposed body of Geneva Chambers was discovered in her Florida home after a lawn worker noticed a sliding glass door was ajar.

The decomposed body of Geneva Chambers was discovered in her Florida home by a lawn worker.

Once police began investigating, they learned Chambers preferred solitude when she was alive, telling neighbors to get off her property and angrily turning away a woman who offered her cookies.

Shockingly, Chambers may have been dead in her home for up to three years. According to court documents, foreclosure notices were issued in 2009 and all utilities were turned off by June 2010.

Neighbors believe Chambers abandoned the house, however the nearby dwellers maintained Chambers' lawn in recent years, entirely unaware that her dead body was inside.

Mail over a year old addressed to the woman, who would have been 68 years of age today, was found in her home. Chambers last known contact with a person was in April of 2010 during a pawn transaction.

One neighbor stated "The big question in the air: why some friends and some relatives didn't try to contact her. Very sad situation. A very lonely person ... What kind of life did she have?."

Local police ruled that there was no foul play involved in her death.
