PLEASANTVILLE, N.Y. -- The Westchester County and Pleasantville Police Departments are investigating the unattended death of a 76-year-old woman who was found in her home on Thursday night, said Kieran O'Leary, public information officer of the Westchester County Police Department.
A mail carrier who came to the home at 79 Grandview Ave. about 4:30 p.m. noticed several days’ worth of mail and newspapers had accumulated outside the home and she contacted the Pleasantville Police Department. An officer then entered and discovered the woman dead inside the residence, O'Leary said.
The woman’s identity is being withheld pending notification of next of kin. She was deceased for at least several days.
“As a result of decomposition, the determination of the cause of death is pending the completion of an autopsy by the Westchester Medical Examiner’s Office,” Public Safety Commissioner George N. Longworth said.
