A Lusodescendant lived for about a month and a half with his mother's corpse, who died of natural causes, in the same house in the town of Antigua, on the island of Fuerteventura, in the Spanish Canary archipelago.
According to Canarias7, quoted by Lusa agency, it was his son's ex-girlfriend who alerted police last Tuesday to this case.
The 70-year-old woman died a natural death, according to the Guardia Civil (correspondent to the Portuguese GNR), who considers that she has not found signs that a crime had been committed. When police officers arrived at the scene, they found the Lusodescendant with his mother's body decomposing on the bed next to his.
The neighbors, cited by Canarias7, said they had already noticed bad smells and were surprised not to see their son helping his mother to move in her wheelchair, although nothing led to the final outcome.
The Civil Guardia confirmed that the woman, born in Portugal and born in 1949, apparently died on November 4, as will be clarified by the autopsy. The case is with the Puerto del Rosario Guard Court, and the child has not been arrested, as there is no data to indicate that a crime was committed.
The paper concludes that the only way to know what happened is through his son, whom neighbors say has been unemployed for months after working in a well-known restaurant in the area.
