Hoarder Keeps Mummy in His House
These stories always feel like HALF a story to me. They’re the real-life equivalent of the first third of a Horror movie. Sadly we never get to see the remaining two-thirds. We have to leave that to our imaginations.
This happened In Australia, in Greenwich, a suburb of Sydney. A man named Bruce Roberts died in his home, in his extremely cluttered home. The deceased, you see, was a hoarder. He accumulated stuff. Like dead bodies.
That’s right, folks. Roberts himself was not the only dead body police found in his house. There was a second one, one that had been there for a lot longer, hidden under a rug and buried under mounds of clutter. Police have no idea as to the identity of this second person.
The two corpses were actually discovered a year apart. After Roberts died in the house, it took a year for the property owners to start cleaning up the mess.
Now if this were a movie, at least ONE of those bodies would come back to life. Perhaps that second body could really be a vampire, and Roberts was its caretaker. Maybe it was hidden under that rug and garbage to protect it from the sunlight.
