Woman Keeps Dead Husband for 3 Years & Has Kids Feed Him

bedI'm just going to cut to the chase here: A woman kept her dead husband in her bed for three years and had her five (young) homeschooled children feed him a special broth and talk to him. There, I said it. According to investigators: "The children, who were worried for their mother and realized their father was dead, would tell her that he talked to them and ate the food." (They apparently also masked the awful smell with air fresheners.)

All came to a screeching halt, though, when the family had to move out of their apartment, and two of the girls -- ages 9 and 14 -- decided it was time to get rid of dad, so they disposed of him in the bushes. The end.

Well, not really. As you may suspect, things didn't exactly go smoothly when the girls were trying to ditch their dad. I mean, the man was dead for three years.

Warning: Grim stuff ahead.

More from The Stir: Woman Sits Next to Dead Boyfriend for 9 Hours on Plane

When the girls -- who never in a million years should have been put in this position -- tried to dispose of their father via putting him in garbage bags and leaving him in the bushes, his head and right hand fell off. I know. So, they had to put him in a dumpster. I know. Amazingly, after police investigated this horrifying situation, they determined that A) although the mother was (clearly!) unstable, she posed no threat to anyone (what about traumatizing her kids?); and B) her children miraculously all seem mentally stable. Hopefully, they'll be placed in good care now -- far, far away from their mom.

This is one of those things that if you saw it in a movie, you'd be like, "Yeah, okay, sure that would happen." But the truth is clearly stranger than fiction, as it did. And it's awful. 

I'm amazed that these poor children all checked out to be fine right now, but I can't help but wonder what's going to happen in years to come. I mean, a 9-year-old girl saw her father's head snap off. There's no way that won't have a lasting effect. These poor, poor kids. Ugh. This really is one of the most disturbing stories ever. Hopefully, this woman will get some much-needed help also. Awful all around.

What do you think of this?

Yep, that's it. I couldn't remember the title at first.

I think you are referring to A Rose for Ms. Emily.  


Quoting KellBell0820:

There's a story like this, no kids, but wife killed husband and kept him in her bed for years. It was twisted.

Maybe that's what the "special" broth was for.

Quoting lovemyirish:

And how just air freshners masked the smell.



Quoting VirgoMom07:

I just don't understand how the body wasn't completely decomposed in 3 years...

i agree

Quoting Aleta775:

I think that those kids realized that mom was nutty when dad died. It sounds like she didn't want to accept his death and that's why they fed him and spoke to him. I'm not sure how the kids came out of this being well adjusted, but maybe the mom did a good job other wise? :S I don't know. I think it is tremendously sad and tragic for everyone. I really hope this mom gets help for being a loon, and that those kids are okay.

As terrible as it is all I could think of while reading this was Desperate Housewives and the episode where Mrs.Mcklutsky was keeping her husband's corpse in the freezer. smh..but that was on tv. This here is sick...like really sick.

They had lost their dad and must have realized mom was batshit crazy but if they told anyone they'd have been out on foster care I imagine. I'm sure they were trying to cling to the remainder of their family and that's why they played along.
