JACKSON, Mich. ? A woman said she kept the dead body of her companion in a chair in their southern Michigan house because she didn't want to be alone. :huh:

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.

It is funny the attachment people can have to each other. My aunt died 4 years ago this friday. My uncle, whom she was married to for 60 years, died exactly one YEAR to the day. And of all things, he died of lung cancer, after never having it in his life. Its like he just gave up, even though on the outside he never acted any differently. No one really knows how they are going to act when a loved one dies, like this person in the article.

I met a girl years ago who said she kept quiet about her mother dying for a couple of weeks and told me she would clean her face and put make-up on her face each day until her skin started coming off :x
