At once this is both an incredibly sad and an incredibly head-scratching story.  Bessie Durham was a 63-year-old janitor at Belk at Columbiana Centre in Columbia. Durham was last seen Thursday, September 15 at work. Her body was discovered on Monday (September 19), deceased in a public restroom at the South Carolina department store. So, do the math. She was missing and her body not discovered for four days, yet her cleaning cart was outside the bathroom. What makes this even more bizarre is that the STORE WAS OPEN over those four days!!! WTH?! Not one person noticed anything in four days?

According to the Lexington County Coroner’s Office, there were no signs of foul play or that Bessie Durham had ingested any drugs. An autopsy has been scheduled to determine the exact cause of this poor woman’s demise.  So sad.
