Wyalusing, Pa. – A woman has been living with the corpses of her late husband and twin. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), state police are investigating the case of 91 year-old widow, Jean Stevens, who had the corpses of her husband and sister exhumed and kept them at her home. Her husband’s corpse has reportedly been at her house for over ten years; however, someone reported the matter to the police last month.
Stevens is quoted by the AP as stating of her reason for keeping the corpses close to her, “Death is very hard for me to take.” With regards to her late husband she stated, “I could see him, I could look at him, I could touch him. Now, some people have a terrible feeling, they say, Why do you want to look at a dead person? Oh my gracious… Well, I felt differently about death.”
Charges have not been filed in the case.
