After a postal worker had reported that a Washburn County home’s mail had not been collected, authorities went to investigate. They found 67-year-old Michael Egan’s body on a bedroom floor. He had been dead for more than a week.
Not long after Egan’s body was found by deputies, cadaver dogs discovered the body of his mother, Elizabeth, on a couch under rags, sleeping bags and plastic.
“It appears Elizabeth had been deceased for quite some time and that her son, Michael Egan, was mixing a solution and then soaking the rags and putting the rags on top of the body,” according to police records.
Bank officials told authorities that Elizabeth’s monthly social security check was directly deposited in the bank for years, including one for $1,128 in June. Investigators believe that Michael Egan had been using her account for years.
Authorities don’t know how long Elizabeth Egan had been dead but say she was last seen in 2005 when she was 95 years old.
