This is a sad freaking testimony to a life.
L.A. County Employee Found Dead in Cubicle a Day Later
DOWNEY (KTLA) – An L.A. County employee apparently died while working in her cubicle on Friday, but no one noticed for quite some time.
51-year-old Rebecca Wells was found by a security guard on Saturday afternoon. She was slumped over on her desk in the L.A. County Department of Internal Services.
“I came in Saturday to do a little work, and I saw them when they were taking her out,” co-worker Hattie Robertson told KTLA.
The exact time of death is not clear, but detectives say that, at worst, she had been dead for a day before her body was discovered.
The last time a co-worker saw her alive was Friday morning around 9:00 a.m., according to Downy police detectives.
Wells, a USC graduate, was a longtime compliance auditor, and had recently become a grandmother, according to co-workers.
Investigators have not determined the official cause of death, but they say foul play is not suspected.
