Who paid the electric bill?
Link Posted: 4/13/2006 12:13:14 PM EST
More important is why did the electric company keep the electric on after 3 years of not paying bills?

If she was in some cities in the states... they would have broken down the door within 24 hours of not paying the bill.

But, yeah, what kind of TV?

this is the second time I heard of something like this. The other one died in her bedroom and the family went on living around like nothing happened. Also in England if my memory is correct

Probably had automatic payments set up and I suppose she had enough money in the bank to cover it. Hell if she had proper investments that brought in more than enough money into her bank account and had automatic payments set up it could in theory go on indefinately if no one found out she was dead.

Or imagine some elderly person getting social security direct deposited, with automatic payments, she dies, no one ever finds out goverment keeps paying out money and companies keep taking it. I wonder how many times that happens, your tax dollars at work.

Two questions or observations, why did the neighbors not say anything about the smell? And they probably would not come to turn off the power due to the fact that it was a domestic violence placement into the apartment.

I've got to find out what brand of TV that was, mine is going out......

You know, this might be a modern Egyptian burial concept.

these days you can place some smart, long-term investments, link the payment of your rent and power to the account, and spend eternity in your apartment, surrounded by your weapons, TV blaring. If the investments grow fast enough to cover the rent and power bill you'd be set for all eternity.

And nobody smelled her stinkifying the friggin' building?

Shit, we had a dead possum in a tree 12 feet up that died and the stink required its immediate removal. How does the rotting corpse of a 40 year old woman go un-noticed?

Mabye she also had some of those automatic scent sprayers that covered up the scent.

One of my friends is a coroner's investigator. He has a carbon filter respirator I gave him. Says it comes in handy with some of the DB's he's investigated.

Electronic devices have the greatest likelihood to fail when they are turned on, because of the sudden surge of electricity. They have a lightbulb that has been on over 100 years in some firehouse in the Northeast - they never turned it off (they used a rheostat to gradually dim it or light it). The same is probably true with TV's.

If she did have dogs...
a) they would start barking @ the dead corpse and somebody would call in a noise complaint, ect.
b) the dogs would get hungry and eat the corpse...chew up all the bones...so when someone would go into the apt. it'd be empty, as if she moved out and left her stuff behind.
c) after 3 years the dogs would be dead too...old woman nowhere to be found(obviously). Local PD puts a warrant out on the lady for animal abuse...

kind of spooky....

There was a crusty old guy in Germany who went about the same way.

They found him in his La-Z-Boy with the TV Guide open, presumably on the day he died.

5 years.

He was apparently rude to the neghbors all the time, so they were just as happy to NOT have to deal with him and his kids didn't care for him.

His factory job had given his account a big enough balance that it paid his rent and utilities for those five years.

Or social security type payments that automatically went into her account and bills that automatically were deducted from her account.

I can't believe nobody smelled anything.....

I had a DB call some years back. He had been dead for a couple of days. His trusty Cocker Spaniel had began chewing on his face by the time we found him.

Wonder how her TV and poll taxes were getting paid.

The TV tax I could see being automatic but the poll tax would require a signature and have to be sent back in.
