Archive ’09: Corpse Hoarder, Sentenced

According to Reuters, “A Florida woman was sentenced on Monday to a year and a day in prison for keeping her dead mother’s body in a bedroom for years [in order to collect] pension benefits.” 61-year-old Penelope Jordan kept her dead mother in a spare room for more than six years while collecting up to over $200,000 in Social Security and military pension. Police found the body in March and an autopsy showed no signs of foul play, but Jordan is expected to pay back the Government the money she had stolen.
