A man dug up his dead wife and slept with her at his home for at least five years, police in Vietnam said.

When confronted by his neighbors, he said that he wanted to cuddle with her at night.

The 55-year-old man of Quang Nam, opened up his wife’s grave, molded clay around her remains to give it a figure of a woman, put clothes on her and placed her in bed.

Le Van confessed that at first, he slept on top of her grave, but about 20 months later, he was worried about rain, wind and cold, so we decided to dig a tunnel in the grave to sleep with her.

His children however, prevented him from going to the grave once they learned of his bizarre behavior. So one night, he decided that it was time to bring his wife back home.

The father of seven said that neighbors did not dare visit his house for several years. “I am a person who does things differently. I’m not like normal people,” Van said.
