New Home Owner Finds Old Owner’s Decomposing Body In Kitchen

by | 10th, February 2011

WHEN the new owner moved into her flat in Lisbon, Portugal, she took possession of a bijou residence and the old owner’s rotting corpse.

Augusta Martinho had been last seen on August 2002. She was 87. She was found dead on the kitchen floor. Her pet dog was dead on the balcony.

No-one, including the police, could open her front door, so they went away. And some years later her home was auctioned.

Says a neighbour (translation):

“I never smelled [anything] bad because the balcony of the kitchen was open.”

When you’re old, you just disappear…
