Woman Lived With Mother’s Decomposing Body to ‘See Stages of Death’

A North Carolina woman was arrested Tuesday after authorities found she had been living for months with her 93-year-old mother’s decomposing body because she was “curious” about the stages of death, according to reports.

Donna Sue Hudgins, 69, of Enfield, reported her mother’s death to a funeral home but said she didn’t know where first responders had taken the body, the News & Observer reported. When the funeral home couldn’t find the body of Nellie May Hudgins, they called the police.

Detectives interviewed Hudgins’ and learned she didn’t report the death for months because she was “curious” to “see the stages of death.”  Hudgins was charged with felony concealment of a death, the Observer reported.
