Year Old Dead Body Found in Tombstone

There doesn't seem to be an endless amount of bizarre stories in Arizona even today.  In Tombstone, actor/writer Timothy Fattig was arrested after the skeletal remains of his mother was found in her house. This is the article I found:

"An actor who did reenactments of the shootout at the OK Corral and worked on locally produced independent horror films remained jailed Sunday after authorities found the skeletal remains of his mother in her house.

Tombstone town Marshal Billy Cloud says he arrested 34-year-old Timothy Fattig on a negligent homicide charge on Wednesday after finding the remains of 68-year-old Jill Fattig.

Cloud says a town deputy checking on Jill Fattig got no response. Timothy Fattig told the deputy his mom was in a Tucson hospital but later said she died more than a year before and he just closed and locked her door because he was distraught.

Cloud said if an autopsy confirmed the death was natural, he'll only face a misdemeanor charge of failing to report a dead body."

  1. I'll bet that fellow was a big Febreze fan.

  2. I don't even want to know what that place smelt like... yikes!

  3. Holy cow--only in AZ! I'm surprised she wasn't mummified and even more surprised that the bank and the electric company and everyone else didn't complain about bills not being paid. When I first saw this, I thought perhaps it was an old story from long ago, but no, AZ is still quite the wild west.

  4. LOL, I know sis...
    I love it when my fellow zonies do something weird and crazy just so I have something to post.
