Subject: Woman Stuck on Toliet for 2 years

Written By: Spirit of 76 on 03/12/08 at 3:40 pm

WICHITA, Kan. - Authorities are considering charges in the bizarre case of a woman who sat on her boyfriend's toilet for two years — so long that her body was stuck to the seat by the time the boyfriend finally called police.

Ness County Sheriff Bryan Whipple said it appeared the 35-year-old Ness City woman's skin had grown around the seat. She initially refused emergency medical services but was finally convinced by responders and her boyfriend that she needed to be checked out at a hospital.

"We pried the toilet seat off with a pry bar and the seat went with her to the hospital," Whipple said. "The hospital removed it."

Whipple said investigators planned to present their report Wednesday to the county attorney, who will determine whether any charges should be filed against the woman's 36-year-old boyfriend.

"She was not glued. She was not tied. She was just physically stuck by her body," Whipple said. "It is hard to imagine. ... I still have a hard time imagining it myself."

He told investigators he brought his girlfriend food and water, and asked her every day to come out of the bathroom.

"And her reply would be, `Maybe tomorrow,'" Whipple said. "According to him, she did not want to leave the bathroom."

The boyfriend called police on Feb. 27 to report that "there was something wrong with his girlfriend," Whipple said, adding that he never explained why it took him two years to call.

Police found the clothed woman sitting on the toilet, her sweat pants down to her mid-thigh. She was "somewhat disoriented," and her legs looked like they had atrophied, Whipple said.

"She said that she didn't need any help, that she was OK and did not want to leave," he said.

She was reported in fair condition at a hospital in Wichita, about 150 miles southeast of Ness City. Whipple said she has refused to cooperate with medical providers or law enforcement investigators.

Authorities said they did not know if she was mentally or physically disabled.

Police have declined to release the couple's names, but the house where authorities say the incident happened is listed in public records as the residence of Kory McFarren. No one answered his home phone number.

The case has been the buzz of Ness City, said James Ellis, a neighbor.

"I don't think anybody can make any sense out of it," he said.

Ellis said he had known the woman since she was a child but that he had not seen her for at least six years.

He said she had a tough childhood after her mother died at a young age and apparently was usually kept inside the house as she grew up. At one time the woman worked for a long-term care facility, he said, but he did not know what kind of work she did there.

"It really doesn't surprise me," Ellis said. "What surprises me is somebody wasn't called in a bit earlier."

This will undoubtedly be in the top 10 most bizarre news stories of the year. The question is: will it be #1 or #2?

This line is great:

"What surprises me is somebody wasn't called in a bit earlier."

A bit earlier? Like, say, 23 months, 28 days earlier?

I suppose if there's anywhere to be stuck for 2 years in the same spot, on top of a functioning toilet would be about the best place. Super weird though...

...that despited warnings from his brother about squeezing the Charmin, she just didn't listen...


"She was not glued. She was not tied. She was just physically stuck by her body," Whipple said. "It is hard to imagine. ... I still have a hard time imagining it myself."


...because there are, after all, better things to imagine. 

It's sorta like deep sea diving, and avoiding the bends.  Once you've plumbed the depths of "buttock flesh grown around a toilet seat for two years", "how'd she take care of business every 2-3 days", and "no wait, how'd she take care of business every month", you have to decompress with stuff like "Hillary Clinton and Ann Coulter doing 'Two Parties, One Cup' as a campaign commercial for Unity '08", because if you don't, your brain will simply reach down into your gut, and in a desperate attempt to save humanity, throttle itself with your own small intestine.
