/ 07:29 AM June 15, 2012

BUENOS AIRES—An Argentine widow was spending days in the tomb of her husband who died two years ago, having set up a bed, Internet access and even a small cooker next to his coffin, officials told AFP Thursday.

“Police found Adriana Villareal had carried out some work in the tomb where her husband’s coffin was. She had a radio, a computer, Internet, a chair and a small cooker,” said local police commissioner Gustavo Braganza.

She even greeted policemen in her pajamas when they went to check out what was going on in the San Lazaro cemetery in northeastern Dos de Mayo.

“They could see the coffin and the embalmed body,” he added, referring to the husband, Sergio Yede, who died in 2010 aged 28.

Villareal, 43, who lives in the capital Buenos Aires, told police she visited her husband “three times a year and stayed three or four nights there and cooked herself something.”

“When you love someone, you do all sorts of things,” she explained on the website www.misionesonline.net. “My husband deserved it and still does,” she added.

“Someone who can sleep next to a corpse is probably not quite right,” added Braganza.
