A woman lived with her mother’s decomposed body for several years, police in France said.

The 66-year-old woman was found living with the corpse of her mother, who had been missing and presumed dead for several years.

Police officers in Brittany, discovered the body in the house the two shared on Friday.

The mother and her daughter had lived in the village all their lives and were seen as loners.

Neighbors recently complained to police about the trash that is being left in their garden.

When police arrived, the woman seemed confused, delusional and incoherent. They found more piles of garbage bags inside the house, and the body of her mother sitting on a chair in an advanced state of decomposition.

An autopsy would be conducted to determine when the mother died. Born in 1921, she would have been 93-years-old.

The woman had been taken to a psychiatric hospital after she was considered too confused for questioning.
