Khukot police were alerted at 6pm Wednesday that the body of Thiphaphat Phaksuk, 46, who lived alone, had been found at the door of the toilet on the ground floor of the two-storey house.
A doctor later determined that she might have died about six months ago.
There were no suspicious circumstances.
Boonlong Boonplun, 71, told police that he had a dream about his daughter and decided to visit her. She left the family home in Phichit to get married years ago and has lived alone since she divorced her husband.
He said he found that weeds had grown up around the house and he sensed a strange smell from the house so he asked security officers at the housing estate to break into the house.
Neighbours told police they thought Thiphaphat had left the house because her water and power utilities services were cancelled due to unpaid bills.
The body was sent to Bhumibol Adulyadej Hospital for an autopsy.
