Almost sounds like a Mt. Greenwood News Story! Woman kept boyfriend’s corpse for months after he died, watched NASCAR with him

JACKSON, Mich. — A woman said she kept the dead body of her companion in a chair in their southern Michigan house for months because she didn’t want to be alone.

Linda Chase, 72, said she kept the remains of Charles Zigler clean and dressed and talked to the body while watching NASCAR on television.

“It’s not that I’m heartless. ... I didn’t want to be alone. He was the only guy who was ever nice to me,” Chase told the Jackson Citizen Patriot.

Jackson police discovered Zigler’s body in a living room chair last week. Authorities believe he died of natural causes at age 67 in December 2010, although Chase said it was last December. She said there wasn’t a bad smell.

She has not been arrested but is being investigated for financial fraud. Chase admits cashing Zigler’s benefit checks after his death.

“I’m probably going to prison,” she told the newspaper. “I told them the truth. I didn’t lie about that.”

Authorities said the investigation will take time.

“It’s a bizarre case. There’s no other way of describing it,” said Mark Blumer, Jackson County’s chief assistant prosecutor.

Wally Zigler, 48, said his father worked in a machine shop and received Social Security, pension checks and veteran benefits. He said he tried to see his dad, but Chase wouldn’t let him in the house.

“That wasn’t right to leave him lay like that,” Zigler said.

"She said there wasn’t a bad smell."

Or maybe good old Chuck did not smell any worse. When the cops came she should have done the weekend at Bernie's routine. Stand up Chuck!

Simple case of milking the cash cow for as long as possible. Didn't want to be alone, my ass.

Linda Chase voted for Obama, then told him that her friend was going to vote for him also but was feeling kind of stiff and wouldn't get out of his chair.

She also forgot to mention that Charles had a 12 inch cock and ate those Viagra like they were candy.

How did you get that picture of my late Crazy Uncle?

That's the picture we used on his casket because when he was found, we could not have an open one.

That's another story, though.

What your wives see in my is the willingness to spend time and give them attention. You guys spend too much time and give too much "attention" to each other.
