Just do what the nice man says.
this story has everything. There's a religious nutjob, classic
mug-shots, and a corpse rotting on a toilet! I'm sure the movie
will be on Lifetime very soon
"Kids, mom lived with 90-year-old's corpse for weeks in Wis."
"MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Two children and their mother lived for about two months with the decaying body of a 90-year-old woman on the toilet of their home's only bathroom, on the advice of a religious "superior" who claimed the corpse would come back to life"
NB - the ONLY bathroom in the house. Don't think too long about that one.
children — a 15-year-old girl and a 12-year-old boy — cried
hysterically Wednesday after a deputy who came to their Necedah home
looking for Magdeline Alvina Middlesworth ordered them out because of
the stench from her body.
children were in foster care Friday. Their mother, Tammy Lewis, and
self-described "bishop" Alan Bushey remained in custody on felony
counts of being a party to causing mental harm to a child."
A "bishop" you say? Well look, he's got a collar and everything. Alrighty then.
Deputy Leigh Neville-Neil arrived at the house, she encountered Lewis,
also known as Sister Mary Bernadett, the complaint said. Lewis, 35,
initially refused to allow the deputy to check on Middlesworth, telling
her that Middlesworth was on vacation and saying she had to check with
her "superior" first.
eventually let the deputy in. The house smelled of incense and burned
wood, and had religious materials everywhere and hymns playing on the
stereo, according to the complaint.
the deputy opened the last closed door, she smelled "decaying matter"
and noticed something piled on what appeared to be a toilet. Lewis told
her it was Middlesworth's body, the complaint said."After all that, the mug shot speaks for itself...
described the one-story home in the town of Necedah as in decent
repair, although the residents had been using "makeshift" toilet
facilities because of the situation in the one bathroom.
boy at the house told a detective he had considered running away
because he was uncomfortable with the situation. He said Bushey told
him that demons were trying to make it look as if Middlesworth wouldn't
come back to life, and that if she were to be discovered he and the girl would have to go to public school and get jobs because Middlesworth paid the bills.
The boy referred to Middlesworth as "grandmother," the complaint said.
Oleson said Middlesworth was unrelated to Bushey."The old bag paid the bills? Now wasn't that handy. Yep, gotta keep those checks passing into the collection plate!
