Children Hid Their Dead Mom’s Body and Lived with It in Fear of Being Scolded

In China, two children decided to live with the decaying body of their dead mother in fear of being scolded by the authorities if they reported the issue. 34-year-old mentally ill, Deng Caiying of Guangdong Province died of malnutrition as reported. She lived with her kids after her husband’s death three years ago and was put to ramshackle by her own relatives. “People did what they could for her but mental problems meant she couldn’t find work after the death of her husband and she was relying on handouts from relatives who are also poor,” one of her neighbor said in an interview. Two boys, Mo Xiaoyong, 12 and Lok Pan, 13, locked their mother’s body in a bedroom where a mental health worker, Hui Ying Chuang eventually found the decaying body. Upon asking where their mother was, the two pointed at the bedroom door. “I went in and realised immediately that she was dead. The smell was suffocating and when I asked what had happened the younger boy said they had locked her in after she died and hadn’t told anyone because they were afraid of being scolded,” Hui stated. She also described the kids as quite “numb but calm.” According to the police spokesman, the children are now receiving counseling and there’s nothing to worry about. The incident was described as “tragic death in tragic circumstances.” http://www.thedailypedia.com/2015/01/they-dont-want-to-be-scolded-so-they-hid-their-dead-moms-body-and-lived-with-her/
