British "care" system

Ah another example of the level of care in the UK.
The 40-year-old's body was so decomposed that the only way to identify her was to compare dental records with a holiday photograph. Police believe she probably died of natural causes in early 2003, and was only found in January this year when housing association officials broke into the bedsit in Wood Green, North East London. They were hoping to recover the thousands of pounds of rent arrears that had piled up since her death.Details of the case emerged during an inquest at Hornsey Coroner's Court, which was attended by relatives including Ms Vincent's sisters.A spokesman for the coroner said today that Ms Vincent had apparently been a placed in the women's refuge accommodation as a victim of domestic violence.

Can't wait for them to get programs like that over here!!!!
