Woman Found Dead In Trash-Filled Home, Firefighters Had To Cut A Hole in the Roof to Pull Her Body Out.

Firefighters in north suburban Skokie were forced to cut through the roof of a home Monday night to remove the body of a 79-year-old woman who was apparently a hoarder.

The Chicago Tribune reports that Marie Davis was found under a pile of debris in her home in the 5400 block of Foster Street Monday night:

Police were unable to open the door of the residence and contacted the fire department. Skokie deputy fire chief Barry Liss told the Chicago Sun-Times there was a “massive amount of debris” at the home that was “floor to floor, wall to wall.” It took ten firefighters three hours to recover the body.

“In my 29 years of law enforcement I have never seen a house in this condition,” Skokie police Commander Michael Ruth told CNN.

 Ruth did say amazingly not a single copy of the Chicago Tribune was in the house..
