Toilet Trouble

I cannot believe this news item from today. I just can't. I posted the story below. You can find the story here.

Who the hell can sit on a toilet for TWO, not one, but two YEARS? And her ass skin grew around the toilet seat. AND her boyfriend brought her food and water for two years like it was normal, before deciding to call the police to pry her and the toilet seat out of the bathroom.

And the neighbor, was not surprised. Why? I can't get over why she never left the toilet to begin with and how she still had a boyfriend who accomodated her.

The stench must have been unbearable.

I wonder if she and the boyfriend had any kind of sex. Yeah, that is what I thought. Eww.

Up Date: They lived in a trailer; the Sheriff now assumes they both had diminished capacity even though the boyfriend worked in an antique store ( the irony: trailer dweller selling antiques) and wants to charge him with mistreatment of a dependent adult. You can read it here.


Kansas Police: Woman Pried From Boyfriend's Toilet After Sitting on It for 2 Years

Wednesday, March 12, 2008

Deputies say a woman in western Kansas became stuck on her boyfriend's toilet after sitting on it for two years.

Ness County Sheriff Bryan Whipple said it appeared the 35-year-old Ness City woman's skin had grown around the seat. She initially refused emergency medical services but was finally convinced by responders and her boyfriend that she needed to be checked out at a hospital.

"We pried the toilet seat off with a pry bar and the seat went with her to the hospital," Whipple said. "The hospital removed it."

Whipple said investigators planned to present their report Wednesday to the county attorney, who will determine whether any charges should be filed against the woman's 36-year-old boyfriend.

"She was not glued. She was not tied. She was just physically stuck by her body," Whipple said. "It is hard to imagine. ... I still have a hard time imagining it myself."

He told investigators he brought his girlfriend food and water, and asked her every day to come out of the bathroom.

"And her reply would be, `Maybe tomorrow,"' Whipple said. "According to him, she did not want to leave the bathroom."

The boyfriend called police on Feb. 27 to report that "there was something wrong with his girlfriend," Whipple said, adding that he never explained why it took him two years to call.

Police found the clothed woman sitting on the toilet, her sweat pants down to her mid-thigh. She was "somewhat disoriented," and her legs looked like they had atrophied, Whipple said.

"She said that she didn't need any help, that she was OK and did not want to leave," he said.

She was taken to a hospital in Wichita, about 150 miles southeast of Ness City. Whipple said she has refused to cooperate with medical providers or law enforcement investigators.

Authorities said they did not know if she was mentally or physically disabled.

Police have declined to release the couple's names, but the house where authorities say the incident happened is listed in public records as the residence of Kory McFarren. No one answered his home phone number.

The case has been the buzz Ness City, said James Ellis, a neighbor.

"I don't think anybody can make any sense out of it," he said.

Ellis said he had known the woman since she was a child but that he had not seen her for at least six years.

He said she had a tough childhood after her mother died at a young age and apparently was usually kept inside the house as she grew up. At one time the woman worked for a long-term care facility, he said, but he did not know what kind of work she did there.

"It really doesn't surprise me," Ellis said of the bathroom incident. "What surprises me is somebody wasn't called in a bit earlier."

Uhhhh. That really creeps me out. It seems like the subject of a random and twisted short story I would have read in college.

"Maybe tomorrow."

What was her boyfriend thinking? I can safely say that if Iggie took to the bathroom for more than 2 hours I'd call the authorities.

Melissa-I could not believe it either-what in the hell was she doing day in and day out?

Didn't her back or her ass or her legs hurt and when they went numb, what happened?

I can't even believe she had a boyfriend.

So it isn't like you just sit on the toilet, and all of the sudden your ass is stuck to it. It takes many months for your skin to grow around an object.

Apparently she does have some sort of mental issues.

I would think they might have to amputate her legs do to the poor circulation.

FatWon-it is so sad and gross as the same time. Her boyfriend must be a functional mental case or something.
