Ai 20jr is laaaaaank. Seriously is dit nie bietjie weird nie? Wat sê sy, as sy die vleis kla uitgehaal het: hi ma, baai ma?
An elderly woman stored her mother’s body in a freezer for up to 20 years, it was revealed today.
Daulat Irani’s mother was found wrapped in bin bags and stored in a freezer in the garage of her home in Sidcup, South-East London.
Police were today questioning Mrs Irani, 83, after the grim discovery.
Officers believe that Mrs Irani feared that authorities would discover that her mother had been living in Britain illegally if her death was made public.
It is understood the body was formally identified yesterday as that of Gulbai Freedoon Murzan, who was born in 1901.
Officers believe she could have been dead for up to 20 years.
Her death was currently being treated as unexplained rather than suspicious, the Metropolitan Police said.
Post-mortem examination results are expected later this week.
Officers were initially called to the property in Park Mead on May 10 after being alerted by a neighbour. Forensic officers then moved in to remove the well-preserved corpse.
Ray Dyson, 77, who lives nearby, said Ms Irani was a ‘nice old lady’ who went quietly about her business.
He told the Daily Mirror: ‘This has all come as a bit of a shock. The first we knew was when two police cars and an officer in a full forensic bodysuit turned up.
‘They taped off the garage and have now put a padlock on it.’
A police spokesman said: ‘The death is being treated as unexplained rather than suspicious.
‘There have been no arrests and an 83-year-old woman has been interviewed under caution.’
