    Hamilton, ON - Husband's corpse upstairs family prays for 6 months for resurrection

    http://www.therecord.com/news-story/...-resurrection/


    I was unable to find this on the regular WS boards and I am pretty sure someone must have written about this weird case!

    Neighbours spotted family praying and chanting in the yard but hadn't seen the husband for some time.

    He was dead for six months upstairs. Wife had sealed off vents to contain smells and family went on with life. His body wasn't discovered until September 2013.

    Wife was charged under the Coroner's Act for failing to report.

    She and the children have now relocated to Ft Erie .....

    ''When neighbours asked about her husband, curious about the 52-year-old man's seeming disappearance, Kaling Wald would tell them he was "in God's hands now."

    On Monday, Kaling, 50, pleaded guilty to failing to notify police or the coroner that her husband had died due to a sickness that was not being treated by a doctor. It's the first known case of its kind (involving the resurrection belief) in Canada. "

    I remember the story from the summer time, the surviving family was no where to be found but the body was there in the upstairs bedroom.IIRC

    "The sheriff found the 51-year-old’s body while trying to evict Wald and his family from their St. Matthews Avenue home in the city’s north end last year."

    "Wald’s body sat in the room until September, when the sheriff came to evict them from the home after they defaulted on the mortgage."

    "She told CBC Hamilton that odd behaviour around the home started around that time. Hordes of flies could be seen around a second-floor window and birds were pecking at the screen. And Peter Wald was not seen outside around his prized blue Astro van, painted with religious words and symbols.

    Family members also started dancing and chanting while wearing black robes in the back yard, sometimes twice a day, said Dennis’s husband, Brian.''
