Winning Bidder At Foreclosure Sale Makes Gruesome Discovery Upon Entering Newly-Purchased Home

In Fountain, Colorado, KOAA-TV Channel 5 reports:
  • A real estate investor made a sobering discovery inside a property in Fountain that he bought at auction last week. The body of the previous owner was lying on the bed.

    Fountain Police tell News 5 a neighbor called in January to request a welfare check at the home, but when officers arrived, nothing suspicious was found. Officers were unable to enter the home without a warrant.

    Detectives tell News 5 since the remains were discovered, they've learned that the previous homeowner, Simone Daye, stopped paying utilities in April of 2015. The U.S. Postal Service had even stopped delivering mail when it began to build up in the mailbox. However, neither agency told police.

    Investor Hootan Emami said he went to the house for the first time Thursday and thought it was an abandoned property.

    "The bathroom was very clean and normally we don't see it like that," Emami said. "Normally speaking, you don't see a soap dish that has soap in it."

    There were two cars in the garage along with cans of soda stacked neatly on the shelves. The kitchen was clean and in order. There was dust everywhere, but the home didn't smell bad, Emami said. He walked upstairs, where he saw someone lying on the bed in the master suite.
