This is one of those stories that make you know that there are some people out here with major issues. This woman lived in a house with her dead mother for at least 3 years. How in the world is that possible? There are many more questions than answers here but I suppose that the lady does not only need medical attention but prayer as well. Poor thing. Let’s all pause right now for a moment of silence for what she must be going through.
According to NY Post reports:
A Brooklyn woman spent three years living in a cramped apartment with her dead mom — propping her up at the dinner table and sleeping next to her skeleton every night, The Post has learned.
Chava Stirn, 28, even dressed like her mother — wearing the same black outfit and shoes that Susie Rosenthal had on when she died.
Stirn set the bones of her mom, Susie Rosenthal, 61, on a bed of trash bags in the kitchen of their Borough Park apartment, a law-enforcement source said.
For the slumber parties, she dragged a chair into the kitchen to snooze next to the corpse — leaving her twin bed covered in stacks of paper.
Neighbors didn’t smell anything suspicious until the super of the building tried to investigate a leak coming from the apartment on Monday afternoon, police sources said.
Stirn refused to open her door, so emergency workers knocked it down — and found her in a chair, looking disheveled, surrounded by waist-high piles of trash, police sources said.
She refused to let anyone inside the apartment, so a relative would sometimes leave food outside her door, the police sources said.
When cops approached Stirn, she was acting “erratically.” She was taken to Maimonides Medical Center for a psych evaluation.
She believed her mom had “ left her there to die,” a police source said.
The cause of Rosenthal’s death is not yet clear.
