Widow Sleeps Next to Dead Husband's Corpse For a Year: GRAPHIC PHOTOS

by at .  Updated at . Comments

It's like something out of the Faulkner short story "A Rose For Emily." Or the movie Psycho. Except it's real life. 

A Belgian woman slept next to her dead husband's decomposing corpse for A YEAR before authorities found his mummified body on November 19th.

A year. 365+ days. Next to a dead body. So much shuddering right now.

Neighbors never reported a smell coming from the woman's apartment.

Within a week of the death of 79-year-old "Marcel H." his internal organs had melted and liquefied and his body began to rot and then mummify because of the conditions inside the apartment. 

Authorities found the body because the woman failed to pay rent for the entire year. Probably because she was in shock from sleeping next to her dead husband every night. 

Oh yes, there are pictures, but they are GRAPHIC. (You've been warned.)

Yeah. We told you it was bad. Don't blame us.

If you need a video report on the subject ...

We're sorry. We know you can't unsee this.

Once more for good measure ...

Clearly she never would have changed those sheets in a whole year. There is no possible way she would have been able to because he would have broken apart. Because in the photos his legs are still like bent at the knees where he has fallen asleep the last time he was alive & stuff. If you look at them, you can see his legs are still bent so that they look like he had bent them to look like they weren't completely lying dead straight. Plus she would have had to of been going out to have purchased her self food & stuff like going grocery shopping & paying her other bills like electricity & phone bills & water bills & stuff like that... If she hadn't of paid them, she would have been out of there a long time earlier before a year right?...just saying... But it's pretty disturbing. Rip, hope she receives the help she needs.

WHY? I know some people go crazy when they lose a loved one but after a year you would think something would snap into place I mean she had enough common sense to keep herself alive for a year so there was apparently something in the head!

It's really sad. She obviously went into some sort of psychosis when he passed and had no one checking in on her to help. Even though it's morbid there's still a sense of romance. Maybe she was hoping she'd die too. Honestly a year had passed and not one person noticed any of the changes that had to take place? I feel sorry for her.

Wierd.. How could she possible deal with the smell? Didn't it creep her out to sleep next to her DEAD husband?
