In the year, 2010, two realtors, Maria Sebastian and Bonnie Keen, made their way through solid woods to explore a property they’d just listed, where one of them had the misfortune to fall through an air vent into a goldmine that had been abandoned some 100 years earlier.
Since a mineshaft is approximately as dark as the inside of a cow, that realtor didn’t notice the remains of a man who had been left there to disintegrate over a ten year period.
The day after the mishap, the body was discovered sitting there quietly, wearing the realtor’s ex-husband’s coat.
