…and apparently dead. And still receiving Social Security checks.
That was the response a Detroit woman gave to police when asked why it was that she kept the mummified body of her deceased roommate around for as much as 18 months:
"It's not that I'm heartless. It's just that after so many bad things happen to you, I don't know," Chase told Michigan Live while wiping away tears. "I didn't want to be alone. He was the only guy who was ever nice to me."
There’s something seriously wrong with people in Detroit: not only will they keep a dead body for (allegedly) 18 months just for the money, but the local newspapers are also littered with spelling and grammatical errors. If you don’t believe me, just watch Hardcore Pawn for a week, and you’ll see: Detroit is full of crazy dumbasses, and bad public schools, it would seem.
