Brussels - Authorities in Belgium made a disturbing discovery when they came across an elderly widow who had been sleeping beside her dead husband's mummified body since November of last year.
An article in the Daily Mail (which includes graphic photos of the corpse) states that the 69-year-old widow was sharing an apartment with her 79-year-old husband when he passed away of an apparent asthma attack.
According to the Huffington Post, the landlord of the apartment notified authorities because the couple had not paid rent since 2012.
Upon entering the home, the authorities made the shocking discovery of a corpse lying in the bed the woman shared with her husband.
New York Daily News reports that no neighbors complained of any bad smells coming from the apartment due to the fact that the body was in a mummified state.
New York Daily News goes on further to explain that mummification of a body can happen naturally if the body is kept in a dry environment that is warm.
This is not the first time a grieving spouse has not wanted to part ways with their significant other's corpse. Oddity Central reports of a man in Vietnam who dug up the corpse of his deceased wife so that he could still sleep with her every night.
