Peter Wald, 52, died "probably around March 20th" last year, according to the agreed statement of facts read out in court Monday. He'd suffered from diabetes and his left foot had become infected. But he had refused to go to the hospital and believed God would cure him.

He went into a coma, she says, and days later she noticed his stomach bloating and signs of rigor mortis on his forehead.

She then left him – his body covered with two blankets, his head with a toque – in the bed and padlocked the bedroom door.

Kaling sealed in the door and the vents with duct tape to protect her family from the smell of the cadaver. And then for six months, life went on and they prayed for their dead husband and father in the bed upstairs as they awaited his return.

It was Sept. 17, 2013 when the body was finally discovered. The sheriff had arrived to evict the family from the St. Matthews Avenue, near Barton Street East and Wentworth Street North, house after they had defaulted on the mortgage.

Expecting the eviction, the family packed the dead man's belongings and had his shoes and bags ready to go. [www.thespec.com]

Okay... think I'm missing something here. They packed his shoes and bags - but did they pack up the body and take that too when they were evicted?

Just wondering cuz, you never know - god works in mysterious ways.

They expected him to wake up and carry the bags himself probably.

Hard to second guess flaming lunatics.
