Mom’s in the basement, check the trash bags

I just can’t get enough of that traditional family love.

From Wisconsin State Journal:

When Mary Coleman died in May 2009, two days after she fell to the floor at her sister’s house, her sister and nephew decided there was nothing they could do about it and went out for pizza.

Then, according to a criminal complaint filed Tuesday, Veronica King and her son, Steven King, kept Coleman’s death a secret, hiding her body in the basement and then the garage of the house on Whenona Drive until Madison police found her mummified remains more than three months later.

Steven and Veronica King told police that Coleman, 70, had fallen down in a bedroom on May 7, 2009, then lay there, talking now and then, until her death. “I told her quite frankly to shut up because that old woman in the backyard” would call the police, Steven King told police, according to the complaint.
