Yes a mummified corpse was found hanging in a faux leather garment bag in Dorian Corey's closet when friends went in to clean out her belongings upon her death. The corpse was estimated there at least 30 years. There was never any proof that Dorian was the person behind the homicide. The mummy JUST happened to be hanging in her closet. It was an adult male who was presumed about 35 years old at the time of his death. Thats all anybody really knows.

I heard that it was a trunk and it was a pizza delivery boy who had come to her home and tried to rape her and she shot him. It being the early sixties, she knew she wouldn't have a chance at self defense so she covered him in baking soda as a preservative and wrapped him in leather and plastic and then into the trunk and closet he went, only to be discovered 30 years later after her death. I heard there was also a note inclosed explaining the entire thing.

. . . I love the easy drag looks that allow minimal make-up and flats: nun, school marm, and of course, librarian . . . right now, my hair is up in a bun, I am wearing a light dusting of powder,blue eye-shadow, and biege lip-liner, along with my high-powered magnifying-lens tortoise shell eyeglasses (hanging from a chain, of course) . . . Please note the identity of the expert that the AP turned to for word on the street . . . Rule Empress, Rule! -H. Phace, Research Librarian...

Hi all. I just had to chime in and tell you all that I am the guy that found the body. I am a NYPD police officer. I was there to just pick up things that my friends aunt had us picking up of a party. The suitcase was not hanging. There was no note. It was not the 5th floor. It was the first floor. And it was a brown stone. The address was 453 W 140 Street. We did not know that there was a body. There was a transvestite that open the door. She told us that the costumes were ready but a few...

Hello Bobby, I join this forum to set the record streight. I was at work and it was brought up. So when I did a little research I found this page. The way everything got twisted is nuts. My friend Carlos and his aunt I think set me up, knowing I was a cop. Now almost 16 years later, I'm a detective and I would love to get a case like this. So much details were found in the transcript of what happen. It was her boyfriend who use to abuise her. She moved with the body from apartment to...

Hi occb2 Welcome to the Motherboards, and thank you so much for sharing your intimate knowledge of a case that has fascinated us for many years. It was so amazing, too, that you chose Christmas Eve for your first post. I ALWAYS think of Miss Dorian on Christmas Eve, ever since we had the great fortune to spend a Very memorable Jackie 60 Christmas Eve with her - "SANTA IS BURNING" in 1991. I will never forget her show that night.

Thanks Chi Chi, It all came about when I went to a neighboring detective squad and I bumped into someone I worked with back in 93. She said, "You remember that dead body you found in the closet in 1993." I told her yes. She said that she wondered what happen with that case. When we did a search. This forum turned up. So after reading all the rumors that have been going around, I felt that I should set the record straight. I hope all have a great New year and it brings happiness to everyone. ...
