In what would probably be considered one of the strangest news articles seen, a woman who sat on her boyfriends toilet seat for two years, had become physically stuck to it and her skin had grown around the seat.
Sheriff Bryan Whipple from the Ness County Police says that their office was called last month by the woman's boyfriend who said something was wrong with his girlfriend.
Whipple states that the hospital had to remove the toilet seat from the 35 year old woman's body.
In Whipple's words, "We pried the toilet seat off with a pry bar and the seat went with her to the hospital. The hospital removed it.", Whipple adds, "She was not glued. She was not tied. She was just physically stuck by her body. It is hard to imagine. ... I still have a hard time imagining it myself."
The woman's boyfriend, which authorities have not named, claims that he had to bring the woman food and water and that he requested she come out every day but she refused and kept telling him "maybe tomorrow.".
When the police arrived they found the woman clothed, sitting on the toilet with her pants around her thighs and they say she appeared to be disoriented as well as her legs looking atrophied.
She also stated she didn't want to leave and she didn't need any help. The authorities with the help of the boyfriend convinced her that she needed medical help.
She has since refused to cooperate with authorities or the hospital staff and it is unclear if she is physically or mentally disabled.
Although the couple's names have not been released, the owner of the house where this occurred, according to public records, is Kory McFarren.
Authorities are considering whether any charges are to be brought against the boyfriend.
In a statement from a neighbor, James Ellis, who knew the woman since childhood, he said he had not seen the woman in six year bu that she had a tough childhood after her mother died at a young age.
He adds, "It really doesn't surprise me. What surprises me is somebody wasn't called in a bit earlier."
