    I don't recall precisely how long, many factors are involved in body decomposition, but high humidity is one of the factors that makes the decomposition go faster. Also the fact the body wasn't buried made it vulnerable to necrophagus (sp?) animals. So I'm guessing it was pretty quick.

    A science thing I watched a few months ago measured the amount of time it took a deer carcas to decompose in a humid enviroment similiar to the Fl. everglades,and it didn't get totally down to bones,but by a few weeks,it was unrecognizable.all traces of fur were gone.So,I'd say it'd be a matter of a few months.
    Coconut crabs would be a factor as well as the rats.Saw an episode of Man Woman Wild and those things are mean,they can snap off a finger like nothing.You have to be very careful in trying to catch/kill them.

    That's option 1. Option 2, as anyone who's seen or read Drew Hayden Taylor's Only Drunks and Children Tell the Truth, is that she's been alive and well and living on an Ojibwe reserve all this time.

    JMO of course.
