Two tenants found out they were living in the home of ‘the woman Sydney forgot’ after receiving an eerie letter addressed to her.

Natalie Wood vanished aged 81 in 2003 before her decomposed body was found at her house on Kippax Street in Surry Hills eight years later.

When her corpse was finally discovered, newspapers told her tragic story and dubbed her ‘the woman Sydney forgot’.

In 2016, her ruined house was sold for $1.1million and completely refurbished to make it habitable once more.

Last week two new tenants were shocked when they got a letter through the door addressed to Ms Wood.

The letter was from the NBN, urging the owner to connect to the broadband network. 

When the tenants researched her name, they were horrified by the story. 

‘We honestly had no clue as we’re not from Australia,’ one tenant told Nine Honey.

‘We found out about Ms Wood because one of our housemates googled the address and her name to see if any pictures of her or her family popped up, but then we came across all of these articles about her death.’

One tenant said they were fascinated by the discovery – but the other was not so impressed. 

‘I’m super creeped out by it and also confused,’ they said. 

‘How can NBN not have it on their records she isn’t alive any more, given the discovery of her death was so widely covered?’ 

A NBN spokesman apologised and released a statement blaming their third party data provider.

The spokesman said: ‘We wish to apologise to the residents for any distress this letter may have caused.

‘We take these matters very seriously and we are working with the third party data provider to ensure this error is rectified immediately.’
