    She was going to come back to life

    Madisonville family kept a woman's body in their home for months because of religious beliefs, Hamilton County County Coroner Dr. O'dell Owens said Friday.

    The mummified body of Johannas Pope, 61, was removed from a home on Davies Place on Wednesday.

    For at least six months, maybe longer, Pope sat in a chair in an upstairs bedroom of the home with an air conditioner on and fans blowing.

    Dr. Owens says Pope believed when she died she would come back to life. The woman's caregiver and an adult daughter say they kept the body because they were honoring her religious belief.

    "This woman truly felt that she did not want anyone to see her when she dies and she was going to come back to life. She died and she was going to come back to life," Dr. Owens told 9News Friday.

    Dr. Owens says just last month the caregiver bought clothes for the deceased.

    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    I saw some of the news coverage on this. The woman and her dau. actually saw the changes in the woman's body as it decomposed as signs that she was going to come back to life.
    Really weird!
