A 66-year-old hoarder — who was a former film and television production designer — was found mummified in her Queens home under a massive pile of garbage, police said.
The woman’s sister told police she had not heard from Evelyn Sakash, who was described as a “heavy hoarder,” since October 2020.
The sister had recently come to New York to find Sakash and hired a cleaning crew to clear out the woman’s house in College Point on 123 Street to see if she was inside, cops said.
The cleaners discovered Sakash’s mummified body around 4:15 p.m. Tuesday under debris in the kitchen, according to police.
No criminality was suspected in her death.
Sakash has production credits on IMDB for dozens of projects from the 1980s to the mid 2010s.
Some of her most well known work can be seen on “Sesame Street,” “Law and Order” and “Orange is the New Black.”
“We miss you Evelyn, my dear talented, soulful friend,” a contributor posted on a GoFundMe page to raise costs to cover her funeral.
