(PCM) Many are claiming that this story sounds as if it was taken straight from the film “Psycho”, as it has been recently discovered that a woman from Brooklyn, NY has been living with the corpse of her dead mother for nearly three years.
The woman, named Chava Stirn, was able to hide her the body of her mother, Susie Rosenthal, in her apartment for three years without anyone knowing about it. Strin had Rosenthal’s bones set up on a pile of trash bags in the apartment’s kitchen.
It is also reported that Stirn allegedly slept next to the remains, as it was found that she would drag a chair out into the kitchen to sleep next to the pile of bones. Her own twin size bed in the apartment was found to be covered with stacks of paperwork.
What is even odder about this story, is that neighbors told authorities that they have never actually seen Stirn or Rosenthal and it was not until the building superintendent needed to gain access to the apartment to fix a leak that the mother’s remains were discovered.
Stirn refused to allow the superintendent to enter the apartment so he returned with emergency works who then broke down the door to gain entrance. When approached by authorities, Stirn was acting erratically and was eventually taken to Maimonides Medical Center for a psych evaluation. Police say Stirn believed that her mother had left her in the apartment to die.
