FOUNTAIN, Colo. -- A realtor who bought a foreclosed home at an auction found a dead body inside the house.

Fountain police told KRDO-TV that they were called to the home months ago for a welfare check, but couldn't legally go inside without a cause.

Real estate agent Hootan Emami told the Colorado Springs Gazette that he and his contractor found the woman lying on the bed in the master bedroom, still dressed, even wearing high heels.

Investigators told KKTV that paperwork and calendars in the home led them to believe she may have been dead for 16 months.

Police do not suspect foul play, but her cause of death hasn’t been determined.
