Neighbors of a woman were shocked to hear that she has been sleeping with her dead mother for five years, police in Germany said.
Now, Munich Police said that the woman who spent five years sharing her bed with the mummified corpse of her mother, was sent to a psychiatric hospital.
Police launched an investigation after the neighbors of the 55-year-old woman told the building manager that the 83-year-old mother who was living with her daughter, had not been seen for a long time.
The manager requested to inspect the daughter’s apartment, but the woman refused to let him inside.
The manager alerted the police and firefighters, who entered the apartment and discovered that she had been sharing a bed with the corpse of her mother.
Police said that the body had been in bed for so long it became mummified. The daughter, who admitted that her mother had died five years ago, was sent to a psychiatric hospital.
An autopsy on the body revealed that the woman died of natural causes. Police said that no charges will be filed against the woman.
