Elderly woman lived with dead sister for months!

An elderly woman from Aughamore, Mayo in Ireland lived with her sister's corpse for almost a year. She sometimes even slept in the same bed with it!

Mayo, Ireland
Mary Ellen Lyons never told anyone about the passing away of her sister Agnes. She kept it as a secret; even from her brother who lived in the same bungalow in the rural western part of Ireland.

An inquest has uncovered Agnes probably died at around september 2002. At that moment she would've been 70 years old.

Her body however, was discovered in August 2003 when Mary Ellen was taken to hospital because she had fallen ill.

Mary Ellen said "I have tried to remember when Agnes died but I just can't remember," in a statement read out at the inquest. "I remember getting Christmas cards at Christmas 2002 but I cannot remember if Agnes was dead at the time."

The two sisters were very religious and lived with their brother in "a world apart". After Agnes died, Mary Ellen sometimes even slept in the bed her sister's corpse was lying in and sometimes in the bathroom. Their brother, Michael, never entered the sisters' room even though the house was very tiny.

"There is no way that Michael would open the door of a woman's room," their neighbour said. "They wouldn't even watch the television if there was a woman on it. They were from a different era."
