Michigan woman kept her boyfriend’s corpse in her house for 18 months so she didn’t have to watch Nascar alone
Everybody knows what it’s like to feel a little lonely and no one wants to watch their favorite sporting events alone. Linda Chase, of Jackson Michigan, was so adverse to it, she kept her lover’s decomposing dead body on a chair in their house, so that she had someone to watch NASCAR with. According to reports, she preferred his company to that of her relatives, who she refused to let visit.
Jackson police reportedly discovered what was left of the corpse that Chase had kept cleaned and dressed since last December, last week.
“It’s not that I’m heartless,” said Chase. “I didn’t want to be alone. He was the only guy who was ever nice to me.”
The 72 year old was not arrested, but will be investigated for cashing her lover’s benefit checks.
“I’m probably going to prison,” she said. “I told them the truth. I didn’t lie about that.”
For the Record: This probably isn’t a surprise to anyone who has been to Michigan. It’s where teeth go to rott and fall out, and I’d bet half the state is taking advantage of government support in one way or another. It’s no wonder UM students are always bragging about their academics, their fellow statesmen still practice mummification, so they can have someone to talk broken, hillbilly English to, while they watch cars drive in a circle.
