ANDERSON COUNTY, S.C. -- A woman told deputies in Anderson County she found a body under the floorboards of her home.
According to WSPA-TV, the coroner's office has identified the body as Frankie Eugenia Black, who disappeared last year.
The woman and a friend were cleaning a bedroom in the home earlier this week. They moved a mattress and the friend fell through a hole in the floor. That's when they found the badly decomposed body.
The woman said a man gave her the home to pay off a debt - he moved out about a year and a half ago.
A coroner said the body's smell went unnoticed for so long because it was in a room with a lot of trash and the body was covered in cat litter.
Investigators told WSPA they identified Black by a plate in put in her ankle after a car accident in 1986.
