A woman has allegedly been eating, sleeping and bathing next to her dead mother, in a small, narrow apartment, for more than 3 years.
Chava Stirn, 29, has been standing her deceased mother up at the dinning table every morning and evening, before tucking her in to bed.
The 29-year-old has reportedly been hiding her mother inside of some stacked-black bags, until she was found out some time this week.
It is thought that she used to drag a lone chair into the kitchen so that she could sleep next to her mother's cold, dead body.
Stirn used to even wear the same clothes as her mother, black outfit and shoes - the same clothes that her mother was wearing when she died.
Her living arrangements were so horrendous, they have been compared to that of Hitchcocks 1960 thriller 'Psycho'.
Stirns neighbours in Brooklyn did not know, or suspect, a thing. It wasn't until a caretaker went to investigate a leak, and alerted the authorities.
The 29-year-old did not open her door - so the emergency officials had to break the door down. When the door was opened, her mother was found in the chair, looking like a ritual doll - with mountains of rubbish laying all around her.
Stirn has been taken in for a psych evaluation.
