    WI - Magdeline Middlesworth, 90, found decomposed, Necedah, 4 March 2008

    a horror story.... why can't people think for themselves?

    Assiciated Press May 9 09:26 PM US/Eastern

    MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Two children and their mother lived for about two months with the decaying body of a 90-year-old woman on the toilet of their home's only bathroom, on the advice of a religious "superior" who claimed the corpse would come back to life, authorities said Friday.

    Goodness now that must have been horrible for the two children. I hope the poor old woman Ms Middlesworth actually had a quick painless death and wasn't just left there to die a slow death on the toilet.

    I think this poor woman has lost her mind. Those poor kids. I have to say though, that my hinky meter went off over the part about the preacher guy telling the kid not to tell anyone or they would all have to get jobs. That sounds a little fishy, doesn't it?

    Ah that sounds like he was involved in some kind of social security scam.

    I wonder was the mother giving him all or most of the money coming into the house?

    There are just some nutty fruitcakes in this world. At some point I have to accept that fact.

    From your link:
    Posted: May 10, 2008

    The discovery of the decaying corpse of a 90-year-old woman in a Necedah house led to criminal charges Friday and an account of a "religious community" praying that she be brought back to life.
    The corpse had been on a toilet for more than two months, according to a criminal complaint filed in Juneau County.
    A man and woman instructed her two children to pray for a miracle that would bring life back to the corpse, according to the complaint.

    It sounds like it was some offshoot Catholic cult sect and that Bushey guy had either brainwashed these people and or the mother was crazy enough to believe him, or in on it with him.

    "The boy at the house told a detective he had considered running away because he was uncomfortable with the situation. He said Bushey told him that demons were trying to make it look as if Middlesworth wouldn't come back to life, and that if she were to be discovered he and the girl would have to go to public school and get jobs because Middlesworth paid the bills."
