A man lived with his sibling’s decaying body for quite a long time so he had somebody to converse with.

Concerned neighbors made the stunning disclosure that Andrey, 42, had passed on and had been left lying on his couch when they investigated the siblings after not seeing them for some time.

Nearby neighbor Albina said she was hit by a “terrible odor” the second they went into the house in Novomoskovsk, Central Ukraine.

Surviving older brother Valeriy clarified he could not bear to bury his cherished sibling who is ventured to have endured a cardiovascular failure when he passed on out of nowhere last pre-winter.

All things being equal, the 52-year has treated Andrey’s decomposing skeleton like he is as yet alive by visiting away to him for a while “in light of the fact that he would not like to be desolate”.

Neighbour, Albina told local media: “When we walked into the house we felt a horrific stench. A human figure was lying on the couch. It was covered with a blanket.

“When we threw the blanket aside, we saw a rotting human skeleton. Valeriy slept and had a meal near the decomposing corpse for several months.

“He treated his brother as if he was alive, continuing to talk to him. He said he was afraid of loneliness.”

To hinder the body’s rot interaction, neighbors guarantee Valeriy persevered through a freezing winter at home without the warming on.

In the wake of calling the police, officials took the body to the funeral home with an appropriate internment to be held to the detriment of the state, as indicated by neighborhood media.

Hanna Starchevska, the police representative for the Dnipropetrovsk district police office remarked:

“The man lived with the body of his sibling for a very long time.

“During a shallow assessment, no indications of brutal demise were found on the body.

“As indicated by the current form, the casualty kicked the bucket of regular causes.

“Assessments to decide the specific reasons for death are in progress.”

Neighbors said that the jobless siblings unobtrusively had a basic existence of unwinding over mixed beverages together.

Hanna Starchevska, the police spokeswoman for the Dnipropetrovsk region police department commented:

“The man lived with the corpse of his brother for four months.

“During a superficial examination, no signs of violent death were found on the body.

“According to the current version, the victim died of natural causes.

“Examinations to determine the exact causes of death are underway.”

Neighbors said that the unemployed brothers quietly led a simple life of relaxing over alcoholic drinks together.
