A mummified body believed to be that of an early Playboy Playmate has been found in a dilapidated Beverly Hills home after evidently being undiscovered for up to a year, authorities said on Monday.


The body is said to belong to Yvette Vickers,a B-movie actress who was named Playboy's Miss July in 1959.

Neighbor Susan Savage found the body last Wednesday when her suspicions were aroused by old letters and cobwebs in the mailbox. Although Vickers generally kept to herself in the neighborhood, Savage decided to check on her.

Police said there were no signs of foul play.
