(Scroll down for video) A man did not report that his girlfriend was dead in order to use her credit card to buy beer, police in Wisconsin said.
Cudahy Police said that 50-year-old Peggy Pamperin, was not seen alive since May, and her mummified body was found when the owner of the home came to pick up rent for the previous two months.
During that time, the boyfriend of the woman used her credit card to buy beer at a cigarette store. The boyfriend told an employee that his girlfriend gave him permission to use her credit card.
The boyfriend charged $1,200 on the credit card until it was canceled by the bank. Pamperin was found decomposing under a blanket.
Neighbors reported seeing the boyfriend enter and leave the apartment. The boyfriend was arrested for violating a no-contact order with Pamperin.
The cause of death was not yet determined, and no charges relating to the woman’s death have been filed.
