Australian woman lives with her dead husband for eight weeks

She was so devastated, she couldn't let him go.

An Australian woman was left so devastated by her husband’s death that she lived with his body for eight weeks before telling anyone. 

According to reports, police were called to a home in the Mandurah suburb of Greenfields in the southwest of Western Australia on Wednesday, December 13. 

Police further confirmed they found a deceased 56-year-old man in the home.

The death is not being treated as suspicious. 

The Mandurah Mail is reporting the man’s 58-year-old spouse had not been able to accept his death, and so had not informed anyone of his passing. 

Police are currently preparing a coroner’s report, with more information to be released once completed.
