WTH?? Widow Sleeps With Dead Husband?s Decomposing Corpse For A Year After His D by Nobody: 10:54pm On Nov 21, 2013
A
woman had been sleeping next to her dead
husband’s decomposed corpse for one year
until authorities made the grizzly
discovery this week. 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 andcontinued to sleep
with the body until Belgian authorities
made the bizarre finding on Tuesday, Nov.
19. 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. WARNING: GRAPHIC
IMAGES BELOW “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.” Although this
seems impossible, it has happened before.
Dr. Christian Hansch with the Department
of Forensic Medicine at the University of
Antwerp detailed an instance of
mummification back in the 1970s. The
body of a man who committed suicide in
the cellar of his home in Belgium was
found mummified 14 months (or 433 days)
after his death. Hansch attributed this to
the dry and well-ventilated environment.
“In such circumstances, the decomposition
process is slowed down, while both drying-
up and autolysis of tissues prevail,” he

wrote in a report detailing find. Last year,
a Michigan woman was found living with
her boyfriend’s mummified bodymonths
after his death. She had been cashing in
his Social Security checks after he died,
but she insisted she kept the body simply
because she didn’t want to be alone. She
was later charged with forgery. GRAPHIC:
