Simi Valley murder

Summary: Most people would prefer to find a rare piece of artwork hanging in the attic than a dead body in the bedroom but one homeowner found the latter.

Imagine this: You just paid a ton of money for a house in a great location but when you go to move into the house, you find a dead body in the bedroom. There isn’t much else that can ruin the happiness of moving day and your thoughts on the house you just bought than a dead body, covered and lying on a bed. One homeowner in the Simi Valley has had to undertake this disaster.

The owner contacted the police, leading to an investigation by detectives. Their first move was to contact the deceased man’s girlfriend Mary Karacas, 75.

She was immediately arrested for suspicion of murder.

The detectives are still unsure how long Orefice had been dead.
