Actress and former Playboy Playmate Yvette Vickers' mummified body was found in her Beverly Hills home last week -- nearly a year after her death.

Vickers was best known for her bit roles in 1950's B-movies like 'Attack of the 50-Foot Woman' and was the Playboy Playmate of the Month in July 1959. She also appeared in 1963's 'Hud' with Paul Newman and in TV series like 'Dragnet' and 'The Rough Riders.'

The Los Angeles Times is reporting that Vickers, 82, had not been seen for several months when actress Susan Savage, a neighbor, went to check on her after noticing old letters and cobwebs in her mailbox.

Savage said, "The letters seemed untouched and were starting to yellow. I just had a bad feeling."
