Woman keeps husband’s body for seven years

SEOUL: A South Korean woman has been found living with the apparently embalmed body of her husband seven years after he died of cancer, police and media reports said.

The woman, a 47-year-old pharmacist identified by her surname Cho, had managed to keep her late husband’s corpse in their apartment in Seoul following his death in 2007, local police said.

But the body showed little sign of decomposition when it was discovered following an anonymous tip, a Seoul police official said.

Cho has not been arrested, but the police official said she was still under investigation on possible criminal neglect charges. — AFP
