Psycho : Mother Keeps Dead Son's Body For 18years In Family House (Photos)

 A mother whose son died 18 years ago pickled him in alcohol and stashed his corpse in the basement where she has cared for him ever since. Tsiuri Kvaratskhelia keeps Joni Bakaradze’s body entombed in a wooden coffin beneath the family home in Georgia, eastern Europe. But despite having died in 1995, the 22-year-old has remained almost perfectly mummified, thanks to his mother’s constant love and attention. And every year on his birthday she gives him a change of clothes – until four years ago when decay finally made the feat impossible. Joni, whose cause of death remains unknown, is finally beginning to decompose since illness prevented Mrs Kvaratskhelia from giving him the daily care he needs.

A mother’s love knows no bounds?

Lagos State Government Will Close Your House If You Show Clothes Outside Indiscriminately

The state Commissioner for Environment, Mr Tunji Bello, yesterday after the monthly sanitation exercise said, the State Government will seal up any building where residents display their clothes outside indiscriminately.
According to him, spreading of washed clothes on fences, frontage of buildings and bridge railings have become the norm in some parts of the state and the practice constitutes a nuisance to the environment. Tough actions would be taken against erring persons. Houses where compound residents also hang their clothes outside will be sealed, Mr Bello concluded.  LAWMA officials have also been directed to pack those clothes as refuse wherever they see them.
