Mummified body found in foreclosed home

In Detroit, investigators discovered the mummified remains of a woman found inside her foreclosed home.

A contractor sent to fix a hole in the roof discovered the body.

Neighbors said the woman traveled a lot and most of the bills had been on automatic withdrawals.

That's how she managed to go undetected for at least 6 years!

One neighbor did request a welfare call back in 2007, but police apparently didn't find anything unusual.

No stars, but TX man's selfie makes rounds

Terry Shipman and his 2 dogs saw the Oscars photo and tweeted one of his own to his son. He joked about beating the number of retweets Ellen got.

Well, he's not quite there, but he did pick up more than 160,000 retweets and counting.

Shipman said he's enjoying the 15 minutes of fame, not to mention the offers for discounts from PetCo and other companies.

The special airs April 7th and features singers like Franklin, Patti LaBelle and Melissa Etheridge.
