The Harris County Sheriff's Department is investigating the death of a woman who may have been dead since Thanksgiving.
Around 6 p.m., deputies were called to a home shared by a mother and son in the 3400 block of Pintan in northwest Harris County.
The woman was found deceased inside the home after another son stopped by the home for a welfare check. It was then that he discovered his 80-year-old mother's body.
A neighbor did mention to authorities that she hadn't seen the woman for several months. It is a possibility that the woman's son, 56, lived with her decomposing body since November.
The Institute of Forensic Science will determine the woman's cause of death.
