Heart disease, diabetes killed Largo woman whose body was undiscovered for three years

LARGO — A woman whose body was found in her Largo home about three years after she died expired from cardiovascular disease and diabetes, according to the medical examiner. Geneva Chambers' body was found in August. She would have been 68 this year. Chambers lived at 1420 Alexander Way. For the past three years, neighbors hadn't seen Chambers, and they assumed she had moved away. That was until Aug. 13, when a lawn maintenance worker noticed the back sliding glass door of the home was ajar. The worker walked in and discovered Chambers' corpse in a bedroom, Largo police said. Detectives determined early on that Chambers' death was not suspicious. Her family could not be reached for comment this week. Neighbors described Chambers as a recluse.
