A bookcase murder mystery?

A woman's body was found wedged upside-down behind a bookcase in the home she shared with relatives who had spent nearly two weeks looking for her.

"I'm sleeping in the same house as her for 11 days, looking for her," her mother, Connie Weber, told the St. Petersburg Times. "And she's right in the bedroom."

"She's a little thing," her mother said. "And the bookcase is 6 feet tall and solid. And she couldn't get out."

The sheriff's office said Weber appeared to have died because she was unable to breathe in the position she was in.
I don't know - it still looks fishy to me. If it were a huge library where a person could get lost in one of the less visited sections, I would be convinced. But...

A professional opinion is required. Calling Miriam and Akaky to investigate.
