A video report by “Inside Edition” covered a news story out of Houston, Texas, last year in which the skeletal remains of a woman were found in the wall of a residence. The gruesome discovery was made by the individual who was renting the home and had only recently moved in.

With a call to 9-1-1, the resident stated that he found the remains and wasn’t exactly sure to what agency he should report the discovery. Based on the investigation and subsequent findings, it turns out that the remains were those of the former homeowner, Mary Cerruti. “Inside Edition” covered the story and posted, in the following video, exactly what was believed to have happened.

Calling their video “The Woman in the Wall: Unlocking the Mystery of Skeleton Found Inside Texas Home,” the posting has been viewed more than a million times and had close to 7 thousand shares. The real story behind how Cerruti ended up inside the wall of her own home is something you might never believe if the facts didn’t speak for themselves. Her former employer weighed in on the incident with a deep sadness, as we’re sure many of her former friends would feel as well. Neighbors had reported Cerruti missing in 2015, but there had been no sign of her. After the bank foreclosed on her home and cleaned it out, it was ultimately discovered that she was truly still there after the new renter moved in.
