This is some seriously sick ish right here. We know the Recession has people doing crazy things to get money but this is taking things way too far.

NEW YORK – A man accused of dressing up as his dead mother to collect her Social Security and rent subsidies is blaming the crime on an impersonator.

Thomas Parkin tells the New York Post in a jailhouse interview that he wasn’t the person captured on security cameras dressed in a wig and his mom’s clothing.

The newspaper says that during the 40-minute interview at Riker’s Island, the 49-year-old also claimed his mother was once a B-movie star who dated Gene Kelly, and offered a rambling discourse on the psyche of Norman Bates, the cross-dressing killer in Alfred Hitchcock’s “Psycho.”

Parkin and an alleged accomplice are awaiting trial on larceny and fraud charges. Parkin was charged Wednesday.

Whether or not it was him, the fact that someone was dressing up as a dead woman in order to gain access to her money is pure insanity. SMH
