Woman keeps mom's body for 6 years, collects her pension


A woman has been indicted for keeping her dead mom's body in a bedroom for six years while collecting about $237,000 in pension benefits, according to a Reuters story.

Penelope Sharon Jordan, of Sebastian, Fla., collected $61,415 from U.S. Social Security and $176,461 from her mom's military pension after her mother died in 2003, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office in Miami.

The body of Timmie Jordan was found on a bed in a spare bedroom at the mother's home in late March. Police were called to investigate a report of nuisance cats.
