A Japanese woman who lived for years with her brother's mummified corpse tried to dispose of him with the household rubbish when she finally realised he was dead, police say.

The woman, 49, told officers she discovered the desiccated cadaver of Masao Tadano as she and another sister tried to move house last November.
It's not known how many years Tadano, who would have been 48 at the time, had been dead, but it was long enough for his body to have become skeletonised."



"....told police she "did not want to be criticised and thought it would be gotten rid of in the rubbish", the Sankei said, quoting an investigator."

I am usually not at a loss for words, until now .... :o :hmm:

"I warn you, whoever you are, oh you who wish to probe the arcanes of nature, if you do not find within yourself that which you seek, neither shall you find it outside.
If you ignore the excellencies of your own house, how do you intend to find other excellencies?
In you is hidden the treasure of treasures, Oh man, know thyself and you shall know the Universe and the Gods."

That is properly grim.

Surely if he hasn't come out of his room for many years that's a sign he's probably, at the very least, not very well.

That's what you get for being antisocial.  No one even notices when you die.

Wow she didn't know he was dead. The smell had to be terrible. A rotting body really smells bad.

To be fair, she did notice he was losing weight.
