    91-year-old woman caught with dug up, mummified husband and twin sister in her house!

    91-year-old woman caught with dug up, mummified husband and twin sister in her house!

    Authorities said they believe the bodies belonged to the late-husband and deceased twin-sister of 91-year-old Jean Stevens.

    State Police believe the remains of Jimmy Stevens had been dug up from the Lime Hill Cemetery more than a decade ago and kept at the home. His body was found rolled up in a rug and stored in the garage. The twin sister, June, died last October; she was dug up from her backyard and kept in a spare bedroom.

    Yeah, who helped her dig up the bodies? And why was her twin sis buried in the backyard to begin with?

    Interview with the lady

    http://abclocal.go.com/wpvi/story?se...cal&id=7537462 Other than keeping corpses in her home, she seems like a nice lady. Though to her they're not bodies, she seems to love them too much to let go.

    The premier Batty Old Lady Living with a Dessicated Corpse story is William Faulkner's "A Rose for Emily":

    They rose when she entered—a small, fat woman in black, with a thin gold chain descending to her waist and vanishing into her belt, leaning on an ebony cane with a tarnished gold head. Her skeleton was small and spare; perhaps that was why what would have been merely plumpness in another was obesity in her. She looked bloated, like a body long submerged in motionless water, and of that pallid hue.

    I was pretty serene about this until I got to the part about glasses and... make-up. Woo-oo-eeeee.

    "A Rose for Emily" was my first thought when I read the headline!

    Very sad... were they the last people she had left and she couldn't bear to part from them?
