    Lubelskie: she collected a pension for her dead mother for 10 months. In the house, police officers found the skeleton of an old woman

    “She did not bury her dead mother, nor did she inform anyone of her death. The woman was in bed all the time, while her daughter collected the pension due her every month. When police officers entered the house, they found only a skeleton of the old woman,” informs

    A shocking situation took place in the Terespol municipality in Lublin province. It was there in late July last year that police officers received a report that the mother could not be contacted. Her daughter, who lives abroad, called. The apartment was locked and could only be entered after firefighters helped.


    Inside, police officers found Dorota S., the reporting party’s 58-year-old mother, unconscious. She was transported to the hospital, but other rooms were checked as a precaution. It turned out that one of them contained… human skeleton. It belonged to the submitter’s grandmother.


    Investigators instead charged the daughter of the deceased with desecration of her mother’s body and fraudulent taking of the deceased’s pension. It is about keeping the corpse in the apartment without burial, reports


    The prosecutorial investigation into the case is now coming to an end. For now, experts have determined that the woman’s mother died a natural death, so one of the charges – manslaughter – has been dropped.
