Neighbors have reported that Yvonne Winn, the wife of Thomas Winn, has always been working hard in her garden. After Thomas Winn passed away a few months back due to natural causes, Yvonne Winn claimed that she simply did not have the money to give her husband a proper burial.
Collin Wilson, a neighbor of Yvonne, saw deputies dig for three hours in the Winn's backyard and was shocked to see them pull out two large trash bags. Inside the bags were what remained of Thomas Winn.
Wilson says the smell was "rancid".
The Winn's house was also in escrow, but the buyer after having to find out that there was a dead body in the yard is beginning to change his mind.
The sheriff's spokeswoman says there was no foul play suspected and will not cite Yvonne Winn for burying the body. The neighbors also set up a fund raiser online in order to finally give Thomas Winn a proper burial.
