Corpse on the Couch

By Debra Myers     May 15, 2007 in Crime
Can you imagine buying a home, and then walking through your new acquisition only to find a corpse on the couch? This is exactly what happened to Jori Giro in Madrid, Spain.
The house was sold in a foreclosure auction, but no one ever bothered to enter the house to see what shape the house was in. Until Mr. Giro.
The remains of the woman were mummified, and deemed to have been there since 2001. That's when the mortgage payments on the house stopped. No one ever went to check on her, and she had been estranged from her family. Since she lived in an area consistent with a lot of tourists comings and goings...no one ever thought anything was strange.
The woman was in her mid-50s, and they believe that the reason her body had become mummified was due to the salty seaside air.
Wow! I can only imagine the horror on that man's face when we walked into that house!
