A woman whose apartment was damaged when her neighbor’s corpse exploded in the unit above hers has been ordered to pay for her own repairs.

Judy Rodrigo lost her nearly six-year legal battle with her insurer on Wednesday, with the Palm Beach County court in Florida ruling that her insurance policy didn’t cover damage caused by bodily explosions.

Rodrigo claimed in her suit that Keystone Condominium Association staff failed to discover the elderly woman’s body for two weeks in 2008, causing it to burst.

By the time maintenance workers checked on the upstairs neighbor, who lived alone, her remains were being eaten by her pet dog.

Covered by any all-peril policy I can imagine. She must have had a shit policy.

Edit: yep, she has a named peril policy. If it ain't on the list of covered perils, it isn't covered.

This is why old people need to keep dogs as pets.

What kind of dog did the old woman have? A Chow of course!

How does a corpse explode?

Wait.

Your UPSTAIRS neighbor stops making noise for two weeks and you blame someone else for not noticing it?

Why not just sue the estate for the money? Chances are the heirs would fork out a couple thou to get it out of probate.

Bacterial action after death causes buildup of methane gas inside tissues.

Severe bloating of the corpse can result, followed (if the gas is not relieved somehow) by a "Kaboom."

Haven't you ever seen a dead animal by the side of the road on a hot summer's day, all swollen up with the legs sticking out?

That happens to people too.
