SAN FRANCISCO -- A mummified body of a woman who has been dead for years was found in a trash filled San Francisco home.

According to KPIX, police believe the body was that of 90-year-old Anna Ragin, who previously owned the home. Neighbors say they haven't seen her in seven or eight years but often see her daughter Carolyn, 65, who also lived there, walking her dog.

The body was discovered after Carolyn told a tax consultant there was a body in her home, prompting the consultant to alert the police.

It took crews several days of trash removal before they located the body, which was wrapped in a blanket.

Workers also found toxic mold, 300 bottles of urine and infestation inside the home. There was so much trash in the home that firefighters were forced to wear oxygen masks when cleaning the house, according KPIX.

A medical examiner has taken over the investigation to confirm the identity of the body.
