In today’s “WTH” news, a Brooklyn woman was found living with her mother’s corpse, propping her up at the dinner table and sleeping next to her skeleton every night. Chava Stirn, 28, even dressed like her mother, wearing the same black outfit and shoes that 61-year-old Susie Rosenthal had on when she died.
A law enforcement source said Stirn would lay her mother’s bones on trash bags in the kitchen of her cramped Borough Park apartment for a sleep over. Police believe she lived with her mom’s remains for two to three years. The gruesome discovery came only after the building’s superintendent investigated a leak coming from the apartment.
