It's been a long time since I had an official Idiot of the Week post, and this story is both idiotic and weird.

Jean Stevens, seen left is claustrophobic. In fact it is so bad, that when her twin sister and husband died and were buried, she couldn't stand the thought of them being stuck in the coffin so she disinterred them.

Not to be outdone by Weekend at Bernie's,  Jean took the corpses home and laid them out on couches.

State police have been investigating the bizarre case since the corpses were discovered in mid-June. Authorities found the body of James Stevens on a couch in the detached garage and the body of June Stevens on a couch in a spare room off the bedroom.
Stevens had them dug up shortly after they died -- James in 1999 and June in October -- and tended to their remains at her rural property outside the northern Pennsylvania town of Wyalusing.
How the fuck do you tend to bodies? I mean how weird is that? Does she get take out from the local chinese joint for them or does she change their Depends?  I won't even get into the aspects of necrophelia.

Jean Stevens has indicated through her attorney that she plans to build an aboveground vault on her property to store the bodies of James Stevens and June Stevens, according to Bradford County District Attorney Daniel Barrett.
"If she does that, the bodies will be released for that purpose," he said. "Otherwise they will be re-interred."
A mausoleum on the grounds. I wonder if they will have a TV with cable?

Barrett said a decision on charges could be made as early as Friday, after he meets with investigators.
He said authorities are looking into several possible violations, including misdemeanor abuse of a corpse. He also cited possible summary violations of the state health code, which regulates how bodies must be disinterred.
"There were some things done here that were not lawful," he said.
Police haven't said who retrieved the bodies. 

I love it, abuse of a corpse. Talk about saving relics. File this one under totally fucking crazy. I have only one question though: Who dug them up and transported them? May be she has a back hoe, who knows. I'd pay to see that.

Thank you for reading this blog.
