Woman Sleeps Next To Her Dead Husband’s Decomposed Corpse For A YearFriday, November 22, 2013
Some stories you hear and you go crazy! Remember the story of the woman who lived with her mummified brother for years? Well refresh your memory HERE
A woman had been sleeping next to her dead husband’s decomposed corpse for one year until authorities made the grizzly discovery three days ago!
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 finding 3 days ago (Tuesday, Nov. 19 2013)
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.

“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.”
