    Blind hoarder ‘unaware’ son was dead in house for 20 years

    IT’S a plot twist not even Alfred Hitchcock would think of.

    The elderly Brooklyn woman found this month living with the skeletal remains of her son, possibly for as long as 20 years, is a legally blind hoarder who may not have even known he was there, NYPD sources said.
    When police questioned the ailing woman, she spoke about her son as if he had simply moved out.

    In a debris-choked second-floor bedroom, sister-in-law Josette Buchman found a “completely intact” skeleton, dressed in jeans, socks and a shirt, lying on its back on a thin mattress on the floor, police sources toldThe New York Post.

    Oh ....my.... Gosh! I've heard it all now. This is insane! 20 yrs and NO ONE realized he was missing??? No one filed a report? This just blew my mind. How in everything that is holy does THIS happen??? Speechless.

    Everything I write is my very own opinion unless I give a link. I can and will change my mind when the evidence leads me in another direction.
