We know some folks have trouble leaving the nest, but even death couldn’t cut the cord for this weirdo.
Brooklyn Woman Found Living With Mother’s Corpse For 3 Years
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.
Yikes… Neighbors said the daughter never left the house and they’d hear weird noises coming from the apartment. One person even said when she listened closely she heard her screaming “I kill myself! I kill myself!”
Clearly she’s got a couple screws loose. Hopefully she can get the help she needs.
