Korean woman mummified husband who died 7 years ago

A 47-year-old woman was caught by police for keeping her husband’s corpse at home, YTN reported Wednesday.

Police booked her without detention for abandoning a dead body of her husband who died of liver cancer in 2006.

The woman who works as a pharmacist embalmed the body and kept the mummy in her living room for seven years.

The woman’s children even said bye to the dead body before going to school as usual.

Although she continued running a pharmacy after her husband’s death, she shut herself and her family from all outside contact in order to hide the dead body.

The woman believed that her husband can be raised from the dead by her prayer.

ETA: For those of you with faint of heart, the mummy pictured isn't that husband, but a mummy from a b-movie in the 40s. However, if you say mummy five times in front of a mirror he will pay a visit to you during the following night... LOL Who knew that old movie monster would be this scary for some of you.
