    Detroit woman lived with dead sister for 1-3 years

    http://www.mlive.com/news/index.ssf/...t_least_y.html

    Police say they believe the surviving sister had been living with the body for one to three years. They say the body was partially covered with newspapers, and a cat and dog apparently ate part of it.

    Well, at least they got her out of her situation and maybe they can help her. Sad but you read about these things alot happening in large cities, not specifically this but it seems that far too many people are lost and forgotten about.

    Is that a nightmare or what? How extremely sad. With today's families being spread across the country and often world wide I can see this happening. I'm no Saint, but I make sure to check on my elderly neighbors. I never forget a kindness and the people that were good to me growing up. I hope this lady adjusts to the crisis center. It's just sad.

    That's just so sad. We really need to get back to how it used to be where people actually knew their neighbors. I'm not saying being nosey or knocking on your neighbors door at 8am every morning for coffee but at least get to know them a little and look out for each other. This really scares me and breaks my heart.

    How did the mentally challenged surviving sister survive? Who bought groceries?

    That's exactly what I was wondering, too. She had to have the mental capacity about her to travel somehow (either walk, ride bus, get taxi, etc.) and get her mail, and cash soc. sec. checks or something to be able to live. This is quite strange.

    Perhaps she was the one that ate the body and not the animals???? Anything's possible in this crazy world, eh??

    What a sad story.
    If the surviving sister was sick, why didn't someone check on her? What about Social Services?

    Social Services in most cases is a joke.

    This is true. I'm glad someone finally helped the woman, even if it was 1 -3 years after the fact. Really sad.
