A Los Angeles woman had been living next door to a dead, decomposing body for weeks before she understood what was going on. A spider infestation in her 250-square-foot Los Angeles apartment helped clue her into the situation, she says in a TikTok video. Of course, the smell was also a hint that something was horribly wrong.
“It was around the middle of May and I started to call my mom and tell her that I wasn’t really feeling like myself. What I meant by that was that I was having headaches, I wasn’t really sleeping through the night, I was feeling nauseous a lot,” said Reagan Baylee. “And honestly, we all kind of wrote it off as me just feeling a little lonely and going a little crazy during quarantine, just like everyone else was.”
Because of lockdown restrictions, it took a while before Baylee could get someone to come out to investigate the situation.
