    Those pressure ulcers indicate that she had been bed-bound (probably not for long, it doesn't take a long time for them to get bad) - Did someone decide they didn't want to take care of Grandma?

    "She had decubitus ulcers present; 5 cm stage 1 on the left posterior hip, 6 cm stage 1 on the right buttock, and a 3 cm stage 1 on the right posterior hip"

    https://goo.gl/maps/rhdY6kR96iR2 Probable area where she was buried/found.

    She may have slipped into a coma or had something happen to make her not walk anymore i.e., falling. She may have been bed-bound, or she was confined to a wheelchair. Either can have contributed to her bed sores. That tells me she was left by herself most of the times, like at home or poor care. Malnourishment can contribute to bed sores. Her health must have gotten worse all of a sudden (wheelchair or bed-bound) before the people got sick of taking care of her and got rid of her. She also may have been killed for speedy monetary gain.

    Usually when the body of a very elder,y person is dumped in a remote area it isn't murder, it is Social Security (or other benefit) fraud. Very often, physically impaired old people have their SS or other checks direct deposited into bank accounts and let someone else have access in order to pay their bills from that account. This other person is often an adult child or other relative. If the elderly person dies, the checks stop unless the issuing agency doesn't know about it.

    If that person dies in a hospital or if the death is reported to the county by a mortuary or other entity that would be involved in handling a death, the report will also find its way to check issuing agencies. If there is no report of death, checks will continue; but government agencies do have ways of finding out eventually.
