Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Police believe a woman was stealing from her father, whose mummified body was found in a Lexington storage unit.

The remains -- discovered in January -- have been identified as Luther Broughton. His daughter, Judith Broughton, is accused of stealing more than $150,000 of his social security retirement benefits.

Officials believe the unit was rented specifically to store his body, but aren't sure how long it had been there. Federal authorities are now looking for Judith Broughton's mother.
