Body of Woman Missing Since September Found Inside College Point Home Tuesday

Evelyn Sakash (GoFundMe)

April 1, 2021 By Allie Griffin

A 66-year-old woman who had been missing since late September was found dead under piles of trash in her College Point home earlier this week.

The body of Evelyn Sakash was discovered underneath mounds of debris inside her home on 123rd Street Tuesday. A clean-up crew hired by the woman’s sister made the grisly discovery around 4:15 p.m., police said.

Sakash, an Emmy-award winning production designer who was last seen on Sept. 30, was reported missing to police roughly six months ago.

She reportedly had a hoarding problem, which explained the amount of items and debris she was found under, authorities said.

Police don’t believe her death is suspicious. The city’s medical examiner, however, will determine the official cause of death.

Sakash had worked on a number of films and shows during her lifetime, including “Made in America,” “Still Alice,” “Orange is the New Black,” and more, according to her IMDb page.

She won a Daytime Emmy in 2003 for “Outstanding Achievement in Art Direction/Set Decoration/Scenic Design” for the show “Between the Lions.”

The whole time she was missing in her own home? But the sister sends a cleaning crew over to clean up the house a year later for the detective not investigate the problem with the body being found and I guess the sister gets money for the house because of the condition of the house being of a dirty person So who reported her missing in the first place and who is collecting the money from the house and who is walking away from the whole situation the sister brilliant.
