A woman in Germany shared a bed with her mother's corpse for five years. When social workers discovered the body, it had already mummified.
According to Daily Mail, The body of an elderly woman was being kept in the same bed that her daughter, 55, was sleeping in. The police discovered the corpse last week after tenants became concerned.
In the past, tenants in the apartment block complained about a strange smell, and they told building management about how they had not seen the woman for some time.
Police said other tenants in the apartment block had in the past reported a "strange smell" and had told building management that they had not seen the older woman for some time.
Social workers in the district of Blumenau, Munich, went to the 83-year-old woman's home, but her daughter refused to let them in. That's when police and firefighters were called, and they managed to get inside the home.
Police questioned the woman and they ordered a post-mortem examination. Eventually, it was determined the mother died back in 2009, and the cause of death was natural causes.
This isn't the first time something similar has happened. Earlier this year, a woman in New York was living with her mother's corpse for at least a year.
