Shopaholic Crushed To Death By Shopping

by | 9th, January 2009

RIP Joan Cunnane, 77, crushed as she was beneath 3ft of wrapped goods, amassed over 16 years of dedicated shopping.

Bags piled high in Ms Cunnane’s bungalow. A 2ft-wide path between the edifices.

In the Rover Metro she left behind, candles, umbrellas, a teddy, shears and a foot pump.

Says the Sun:

Twelve police with sniffer dogs took nearly two days to unload her hoard into a giant skip and find her body.

Had only she bought a suit of armour and shelving.

Yesterday, we learnt of the death of Gordon Stewart, 74, who died of thirst after getting lost in his rubbish-packed home.

Is this a craze among the elderly?
