woman gets on the toilet for 2 years
WICHITA, Kan. - Authorities are considering charges in the bizarre case of a woman who sat on her boyfriend's toilet for two years — so long that her body was stuck to the seat by the time the boyfriend finally called police.
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 reported in fair condition at 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 of 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. "What surprises me is somebody wasn't called in a bit earlier."
Sheriff: Woman sat on toilet for 2 years - Yahoo! News
I was just thinking...if someone wanted to get something stuck on them...all they have to do is have it sit on your skin for 2 years until it becomes a part of your body
wow............................................... .................................................. ..................
seriously, why would you sit on a toilet for so long. wouldn't you get bored of doing nothing but staring at the door or into the hall? can you actually think of things to occupy your mind for so long?
Probably a mental disorder or something.
(stares hard at article blankly) ..................... This is so mind-boggling. Yeah, definitely a mental disorder. But seriously, for her to sit on it for so long that her skin literally grows around the seat making her stuck to it, and not only that, but to refuse medical help as well?? Talk about sickening, persistant and insane rolled into one.
Innocence proves nothing.
lol porcelain fetish, though seriously a 30% rate of survival. so since the bathroom is down the hall from my room...i should not just jump out the windowin my room, but instead head for the bathroom?
edit: actually that was a really stupid question
Ah I forgot to mention that fire caused by burning not explosion. jumping out of the window is 70% I think. Guess it depends which floor your room is located, subtract 10% for every floor.
Also Bathrooms has a lot of hard surfaces so if there's also an earthquake and you are in a tall building its best to stay in a bathroom.
Ah I better take my medication in the bathroom now.
lol. This is one of the first bizarre type news stories that I heard from friends first before reading it on ST. mwaahahahah.
Yea, she's insane. I'd be bored out of my mind in 1 hr...
Maybe she had one of theses
