Evelyn was 66 years old and died of natural causes after suffering from arteriosclerosis, an accumulation of fat in the arteries. Months before the body was found, friends of the woman even made a kitty online to pay private investigators and find out what had happened to her, but no one got any leads.
“It’s devastating. She had a whole life. She was extremely talented. She had a brilliant mind … I don’t want my sister to be remembered that way, the way she was found,” Ellen Brown told the Daily News website.
Evelyn Sakash won a Daytime Emmy in 2003 for being the work of a set designer on the children’s program “Between the Lions”. Her neighbors say she would have “fallen into decay” after her mother’s death in April 2020.
“She became a lot more reclusive and looked sick. I think it was when she started gathering a lot at home. I went into her house a few years ago and everything was normal,” said a man who lives near the house. of Evelyn.
