    Adult Twins Who Lived With Dead Mother for 3 Months Charged With Murder

    Adult Twins Who Lived With Dead Mother for 3 Months Charged With Murder
    Published April 12, 2011 | Associated Press

    HOUSTON -- Twin Houston men were charged Tuesday with the murder of their 89-year-old mother after police say the pair allowed her to die on the floor in their foyer after she fell, then lived for three months with her decomposing, bug-infested corpse.

    Edwin Larry Berndt and his brother, Edward Christian Berndt, both 48, were arrested Monday when police went to check on Sybil Berndt, prompted by a neighbor who called to say the elderly woman had not been seen since January.

    Edwin Berndt answered the officer's knocks and initially said "everyone was fine and there was no need for the police at their home," according to court documents. The officer insisted she had to see Berndt's mother and he let her into the house.

    The home was in "deplorable condition and smelled terribly," and the elderly Berndt was lying face down on the floor of the foyer, according to the documents. Sybil Berndt was dressed in a nightgown pulled up under her arms and was not wearing underwear. The body was in an advanced state of decomposition and insects were crawling around it, the documents said.

    The brothers told police their mother had fallen and died, and that they didn't have enough money to bury her. They said they didn't call police because they didn't want to go to jail.

    Police searched the home and found bank statements from JP Morgan Chase totaling about $700,000, according to court documents.

    The twins later told police they lived with their mother and cared for her. On Jan. 10, Edwin Berndt said he and his brother were watching the BCS Championship football game when their mother "came in ranting and raving and she then fell down and did not get up." He said they decided to leave her on the floor because they didn't have money to provide her with medical treatment.

    For the first day, Sybil Berndt was conscious and able to speak, but did not ask for any help, Edwin Berndt said. His brother said they didn't give her any food or water while she lay on the floor.

    Three days later, on Jan. 13, the elderly woman died, Edwin Berndt told police. He told them he remembered the date because it was a day after her 89th birthday.

    The brothers then decided to leave her on the floor because they didn't have money to bury her.

    The court clerk says the brothers do not have an attorney yet.

    An autopsy was to be conducted on Tuesday.

    Are you fucking kidding me?

    Please tell me that is a false story.

    I wrote this in another thread but I think it bears repeating.

    I will paraphrase the late great George Carlin, I have given up on humanity, I am just going to sit back and watch it all go down the drain.

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    Yeah, I can't believe this is a real story.

    I don't understand so many things about this story. They didn't want to call police because they feared they'd be sent to jail? They knew she was alive for 3 days but didn't help her or feed her? They lived their lives while their naked, dead mother lie on the floor in the foyer?

    C'mon! I'd like to give humanity some credit and say that this story is false and would never happen. But, then again, if it's true, it wouldn't surprise me.

    Is it just me or does it seem like the percent of sociopaths present in society is growing at an alarming rate?? You have to be a complete anti-social maniac to allow something like this to happen...and there were two of them!! That's a 66% clip in one house.

    Just one of the more disturbing articles i've read in recent memory...

    No kidding.

    I can't wrap my head around it. She's lying there. Alive for at least a week, I imagine. Couldn't get up.

    That's the part that gets me. How the fuck could these guys do this to their mother?

    And then to leave her there after she died for 3 months? Not even move her or try and cover up the fact that they left her there to die?

    Might be one of the weirdest, most fucked up stories I've ever read.

    ...stating the obvious, but:

    Shouldn't this be in the "ONLY IN HOUSTON" thread?!?
