Oregon woman lives with sister’s corpse

0418 La PineLa Pine, Ore. (KTVZ) — A strong odor paramedics noticed inside an Oregon woman’s home has lead to a gruesome discovery: her sister’s decaying body.

The body was found last week after the woman suffered a fall in her home and called for help.

The woman admitted her sister had died last fall, and said she was relieved this day had arrived.

“It would appear the woman has some mental abnormalities,” said Captain John Bocciolatt of the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office. “She became fearful, didn’t know what to do and started drinking.”

While there were no signs of foul play, Bocciolatt said the sheriff’s office was handling the matter as a possible homicide until and unless autopsy results or the investigation find otherwise.
