A Texas woman, 45, has been committed for mental evaluation after living in an apartment in Big Sandy for at least a week with her dead boyfriend’s body.
Police were flagged down last Friday by a man who stated that there was a stench coming from his sister’s apartment.
When police entered the apartment they found 50 year old William Drake dead on a couch. He appeared to have been dead at least a week. The woman apparently didn’t want to leave the apartment.
Burr said Drake died of natural causes and had recently stopped his dialysis treatments. He said Drake had lived for 10 years with the woman, who had been hospitalized for mental illness before. Burr declined to reveal her name.
