The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil,
but because of those who look on and do nothing.

I don't like my sister

To be blunt-- I don't really like many people in my family. They are what most people would consider 'assholes'. Of course, it'd be wrong for me to consider them to be assholes, so I just focused on being thankful that I can go the rest of my life without having to talk to them again. But, that's not really the point. You see, even when I did like my sister- I don't think I liked her enough to cherish the thought of having to live with her, and I am really sure that I have never liked her enough to live with her dead, mummified body.

An elderly woman lived for a year with her mummified sister in a home on Detroit’s east side, police said.

Authorities made the discovery Wednesday after neighbors expressed worries over not seeing the sisters in some time.

Investigators found the dead woman sitting in a chair inside the house on Buffalo Street near Seven Mile and Mound roads, police said.


Most likely not a crime, other than failing to report the death- if that indeed is a crime. However... it's got the 'ick' factor going, and I needed a quick change of thought to distract me from the stories that do include crimes.

(personal note- not everyone thinks my family members are assholes, in fact if you asked them they'd say they are all great and I'm the problem. But- really- between us, it's not me at all)
