Man Lives with Dead Brother for 18 Months

LONDON (Reuters) - A British retiree did not notice his brother had been dead for 18 months despite sharing a mobile home with him.

When Herbert Silver, 72, finally called police and told them his brother George, 75, had died, they went to the bachelors' home expecting to find a body. Instead they found a skeleton, British newspapers reported Thursday.

"I admit that I didn't go into his room for a few hours, a few days...well quite a while actually," Herbert Silver told the Daily Telegraph

haha, that's great sansoucie. That would probably fit most of us! What a shame...how can you not notice the Smell for 18 Months? And the Brother for that matter. I would maybe give it 18 hours or so, then I would check..but 18 months...WOW!
