Widow Sleeps With Dead Husband’s Decomposing Corpse…

Friends, my ‘weird-$hit-o-meter’ kicked up a few notches when I read this… A woman had been sleeping next to her dead husband’s decomposed corpse for one year until authorities made the grisly discovery.  Damn! a year!  Apparently, 79-year-old “Marcel H.” from Liege, Belgium, died back in November 2012 of an asthma attack, according to Carters News Agency. His wife was so upset that she failed to report the death and continued to sleep with the body until Belgian authorities made the bizarre discovery.  They were led to the apartment because the landlord claimed the couple hadn’t paid their rent since last year. Neighbors never reported a bad smell. The body had mummified.  Nasty!, just nasty…

“A body can mummify in a dry, warm environment,” Philippe Boxho, pathologist at the Forensic Center of Liege told Carters. “It takes at least a week to reach such a state. In this case the body had rotten [sic] in the bed [and] his internal organs had melted and liquefied. … Even though the smell of human decay is quite specific, many people equate that smell to the smell of garbage and once the body has become rotten the smell does decrease significantly.”

You may have heard people say that ‘…you need to just let go…’; this is one of those times.  Put the dude in the ground for christ sake…
