Dead. In a Tree.

Back in October Melissa Joy Dietzel – of Redlands, CA –  traveled to Sydney, Australia, got a work visa and had a gig as a nanny.

Then she didn’t.

Her decomposing remains were found in an oak tree  by someone investigating a “foul smell”.  The body was actually found back in mid-January but authorities had no idea who it was and it was only until the other day when dental records revealed it was her body.  She had been reported as missing by her family back in the US for over a month.

Dietzel was let go from her nanny job and it was first reported she had become homeless and was living in the tree, but now authorities claim that is not the case.

While police are not investigating the death as suspicious some reports say that they are investigating it as a suicide.
