    A horror film-maker has been arrested after the decomposed body of his mother was found in her home - a year after her death.

    Police made the grisly discovery in Tombstone, Arizona.

    An officer had gone to 68-year-old Jill Fattig's home to do a welfare check and when no one answered the door, he questioned her son, Timothy.

    The 34-year-old film-maker for Desert Scream Productions told the deputy his mother was in a Tucson hospital.

    When authorities found this was untrue, Mr Fattig admitted his mother had died a year ago and with a search warrant , deputies discovered her skeletal remains inside the house.

    Nice. :D

    Deniro wishes he had such chops.

    I also like that it took place in Tombstone. I imagine the only better location would have been Death Valley.

    When these cases are really innocent (rarely), I never understand why the people do it. Yes, dealing with the administrative and emotional aftermath of death is messy and unpleasant but not as messy and unpleasant as harboring a corpse in the back bedroom.

    I had a whacky aunt who didn't want to let "them" take her sister's body after she died. I had the grim task of going to the house and persuading her whackiness that "Lottie would have wanted to go to the funeral parlor." This had gone on for hours before I was allowed to make the call. It was distressing, as Lottie had been my fav aunt, the other one not so much.

    Update:

    No charges against Tombstone actor in mom's death

    A Tombstone actor and historian was to be released from a southern Arizona jail Monday afternoon after an autopsy on his mother's remains showed no signs of foul play and a prosecutor declined to file charges.

    Timothy Fattig was arrested on a negligent homicide charge last week after the city marshal found the skeletal remains of 68-year-old Jill Fattig inside her home.

    Marshal Billy Cloud told The Associated Press that the 34-year-old told him his mother died more than a year ago and he just locked her home and left because he was so distraught.

    Cochise County Attorney Ed Rheinheimer says an autopsy showed no evidence of homicide and he would not file felony charges.

    Fattig did OK Corral re-enactments and is well known for his biography of Wyatt Earp.

    can you really do a proof positive autopsy on skeletal remains? I'm still of the opinion he did it to keep the little check coming in. Oh sure. He locked the door with her inside. But i bet he made the trip to pick up the mail on a daily basis.
