The discovery in northern Italy of the mummified remains of a woman who locals believed had supernatural powers has spooked investigators who believe she may have been embalmed, reports said Sunday.

Graziella Giraudo, nicknamed the “holy woman” by those who queued up to have her read their fortunes, was found sitting in a locked room, one hand in her lap and the other raised as if in benediction.

Investigators said it was unclear whether she had been dead months or years, but that her body had been treated by someone intent on preserving it.

“It seems impossible for something like this to happen in a community where everyone knows each other. It’s like a horror film,” mayor Gian Paolo Beretta told Il Messaggero daily.

Close relatives living near the small villa where she was discovered in Borgo San Dalmazzo in Piedmont could not confirm when they had last seen her.

“The body is very clean, as if someone had looked after it. Who and how is unclear,” coroner Mario Abrate told the local Quotidiano Piemontese.

Giraudo, who would now be 68, was discovered when the woman she had lived with died.

She had been separated from her husband, who — along with their daughter — told police he had known nothing of her whereabouts, media reports said.
