It’s been more than three years since Laura Winham died in her home


For years, Laura Winham was found dead in her apartment because no one was paying attention to her.

The case occupied the whole of England: Laura Winham († 38) suffered from schizophrenia and needed protection. But for authorities in Woking, Great Britain, the woman seems completely out of place. She lay dead in a council flat for almost four years until it was finally noticed that she was dead.

His desperate family is now demanding answers. “Nobody looked after her,” the family’s lawyer said Friday. From next week, an inquest is to clarify why social workers simply forgot about the mentally ill woman.
