Here’s a nice, cheerful story to launch you into the weekend. When Allan Dunn, 86, committed suicide, his friends visited his apartment to collect old belongings. They found said belongings, but also a freezer containing his wife’s decade-old body.
Dunn’s neighbours had wondered where his wife was all that time, but had always been told by the reclusive man that she was in a nursing home. When, actually, she was dead, in a freezer. Police speculate that he concealed her death so he could collect her benefits, though who knows what drives someone to do something so perverse.
“He was just a very anti-establishment-type person,” explains one neighbour. “He just tried to buck the system.” That sounds like a bit of an understatement. [TampaBay.com]
