Emmy-winning production designer found dead in her New York City home

Emmy-winning production designer Evelyn Sakash, 66, was found dead in her New York City home Breitbart News reported. 

Sakash was known to be a hoarder, according to the news outlet, and was found dead under a pile of garbage on Tuesday, according to a police spokesperson. 

“Sakash was found by her sister, who had hired a cleaning crew to clear out the woman’s home in the College Point section of Queens and look for her, police said. The sister and the cleaners found Sakash around 4:15 p.m. Tuesday, they said,” Breitbart reported. 

missing person report filed on the show business regular was stated that she was last seen alive on Sept. 30, 2020. The city medical examiner’s office has yet to release the cause of death, as of the time of the outlet’s reporting. 

The designer was known for famous films, including “Mermaids,” released in 1990, and 2014′s “Still Alice,” according to her IMDB page as well as winning a Daytime Emmy Award in 2003 for “Between the Lions.”

E Online reported that the New York Medical Examiner’s office confirmed Sakash died of natural causes that resulted from “heratherosclerotic cardiovascular disease, which is described as a hardening of the arteries that restricts blood flow.”

While it’s unclear if Sakash’s personal career or anxiety levels suffered in recent years, The Hollywood Reporter released a piece in May 2020, estimating that hundreds of thousands of the 890,000 entertainment jobs had already been lost due to the COVID-19 pandemic related shutdowns. 

The physical and emotional toll this has taken on those not particularly in the public eye has been devastating. 

The BBC reported in October of 2020 that COVID-19 lockdowns have had a “major impact” on mental health, especially for those with “economic uncertainty associated with Covid-19.”

    1. Harding of the arteries… HOW COME it took HER SISTER so long to look for her? NO ONE CARED ENOUGH… older people are thrown away by families today. SICK SELFISH and ATHEISTIC MINDS AND NO HEARTS ! LOOK what that governor in NY did !

  1. So sad. I feel bad for everyone about covid. The state governments did not help by not taking care of the weakest. They caused depression and pain for their political gains

  2. Did I miss something here. She was reported missing Sept.30 and they just now found her? No one bothered to check her home in 6 months?

    1. I was thinking the exact same thing, can’t believe her sister let it go that long, how hard is it to make a phone call or have a nieghbor check on her? RIP

      1. REALLY??? Was she a hoarder that got buried under her own garbage!!!! Sounds like an unlikely natural occurrence.

    2. Have you ever seen a hoarder’s home? Hoarder’s have lost beloved pets under all the hoarder’s hoard! It’s disgusting! The odor alone is atrocious. It’s a sickness of course but it’s horrific effects are life for changing. They actually hoard their garbage!

  3. All of the Dem controlled States contributed to the COVID19 in order to conduct their fraudulent election. These people do not care one bit about the American Citizens. There are millions of American Citizens that are homeless and sleeping in the streets, but the Dems are funding excessive amounts of money to take care of the illegals! To you Dem Voters, you should be ashamed of yourselves for supporting a corrupt Dem Party, and not taking care of our own Citizens. There is a saying that Charity belongs at home first!

    1. How can you call the Dem party corrupt when none of them have gone to jail, but lots of Repubs have?

  4. I’d be sure to haunt my relatives and hopefully get them written out of my will if they didn’t bother to check on me once a week, Covid or not. She basically made her own grave by her hoarding. I feel bad for her.

  5. And people voted for Biden and they are still lying about COVID. It’s time for everyone to open up their businesses schools and towns and say hell no we are not taking it any more. Put your kids back in school and hire retired teachers or moms take turns cause you are doing it anyway. Enough is enough. We are not stupid people. Nobody is. Let’s take back our country. We S the people for the people and by the people can run it better than who is doing it now. Let’s pull together no matter what is your color. It’s our country.

    1. I sid “hell no” about two months into this, Karen! If wearing masks and lockdowns and social distancing work so well, why have we needed to do it for a year now?? In my opinion, this is just a hyped up, liberal media/Democrat fear-mongered “panicdemic,” aimed at the weak — people who can’t think for themselves. But it has been shocking to me to see how many of those are out there! May God help us and save our country from them! 🙁

  6. I wish more thought like Karen and spoke up. I totally agree and am ready to make some noise. We need to unite–but how?

  7. “Under a pile of garbage”? Did she cover herself with it? Her sister took 6 months to get in contact with her?
    Who writes this nonsense with a straight face? She couldn’t have died [under] a pile of garbage of her own volition.

  8. CoVid didn’t cause her Hoarding Behavior. It may have exacerbated her behavior, but even that’s mere conjecture. Hoarders hoard for a variety of reasons, but it still comes down to behavioral issues. Just like addicts, they only get better, when they admit their behavior and work to stop it.
    I’ve heard the excuses for 40 years with my mother in law. I hoard because of this or that, and it’s all BS excuses for a behavior they don’t want to change. At the root is a narcissistic personality disorder. It’s all about them and everyone else can piss off.
    The only sympathy I have is for the family that’s left to deal with all the CRAP.

    1. I agree 10000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000 %

  9. who said she died of covid? I read that basically she had what they called in the 60’s “hardening of the arteries”. why does everything have to be about covid?

    1. Why does everything have to be about covid, you ask? So the vacuous Democrats can keep the weak-minded all jacked up and quaking in their boots — much easier to maintain control over them in that condition, you know. Not working with me, southern proud – and I be it isn’t working with you either!

  10. I agree. Every death now has been linked in someway to the China virus and or President Trump. I don’t understand how so many people can be so ignorant and continue to want the policies that take away their freedoms. I guess the idea of being completely dependent on the government for their livelihood like sheep to the shearing shed is more attractive than the pride of earning what you get. I want my President Trump and I want the Republicans to stop whining and get out there and fight for America and the American people.
