FT. LAUDERDALE (CBSMiami) – A Dania Beach woman who wandered away from her residence on Christmas Eve was found dead in the yard of a foreclosed home.

The body of Mary Swinford, 56, was found in the backyard of a home in the 2900 block of SW 46th Court, according to the Sun-Sentinel.

The Broward Sheriff’s Office said Swinford was last seen walking away from her Dania Beach home about 10:30 p.m. Monday in the 2600 block of Southwest 45th Street.

On Friday afternoon, someone interested in possibly buying the foreclosed property was walking around the grounds and discovered the body.

The sheriff’s office said there were visible signs of foul play.

Swinford was described as “despondent” when she was reported missing.
