Cops responding to a nasty smell emanating from an apartment in Brooklyn yesterday discovered the rotting skeletal remains of a body that may have sat for up to a year before it was found. Police believe the corpse belonged to the tenant's 61-year-old mother.
The apartment, on 15th Avenue in Borough Park, was filled with garbage, and when cops entered, 28-year-old Chava Stirn "flipped out" and threatened to hurt herself, according to the New York Daily News.
Stirn was taken to a hospital for a psychiatric evaluation, and the city medical examiner's office will perform an autopsy on the body. No arrests have been made.
