    Chicago - Woman found living with three dead siblings

    Woman found living with three dead siblings


    CHICAGO (Reuters) - An elderly woman has been living with two skeletons and a badly decomposed body of her siblings in a suburb of Chicago, one of whom may have died at least 20 years ago, authorities said on Saturday.

    The remains were found covered by sheets in various parts of the house in Evanston on Friday but no foul play was suspected.

    Authorities said one of the siblings was last seen alive in the 1980s, the second in 2003 and the third in May.

    The woman living in the house, described as "upwards of 90 years of age," was cooperating in the investigation and was taken to a facility for care.

    Authorities, who did not release the names of the deceased, said a care worker had alerted them to the situation. Autopsies were due to be performed on Saturday.

    Well then I just read in the paper today the woman didn't cash any social security checks that were sent on behalf of the relatives, so she will most likely not be charged. She'll just be considered nuts!

    Probably had trouble "letting go" of her closest relatives.

    Sad.
