Emmy winner-turned-hoarder Evelyn Sakash, 66, found mummified under huge pile of garbage in her NYC kitchen


FORMER Emmy winner turned hoarder Evelyn Sakash was found in her New York City home mummified under piles of garbage.

Police went to the 66-year-old film and television production designer’s Queens home Tuesday after her sister called police and told them a cleaning crew found her remains.

Sakash’s sister Ellen, who was tipped off after not hearing from Sakash in a while, said the designer was a “heavy hoarder” and started hoarding in October 2020.

Looking to reconnect with Sakash, Ellen came to Queens and hired a cleaning crew to clear out the award winner’s home to see if she was inside.

Her fears proved true when the cleaners found Sakash’s mummified remains at around 4:15PM on Tuesday, under a massive pile of trash in the kitchen.

Sakash has worked on productions ranging from “Sesame Street” and “Law and Order” to “Orange is the New Black” and “Still Alice,” in a career that has spanned over three decades.

In a GoFundMe created in January, a friend of Sakash wrote the designer was missing since September 2020.

After Sakash’s discovery, the organizer updated the page to help Sakash’s sister pay for funeral costs.

“Please consider making a donation in Evelyn’s memory so we can support Ellen and remember her as the kind, loving, and generous friend and sister we live and will miss so,” wrote the organizer.
