Zigler died around Christmas time in December, according to Chase. A medical examiner said that he died of natural causes. Local authorities are investigating the case.

Chase does not give a clear explanation behind why she kept Zigler’s body. Perhaps because she is not clear on why she did it to begin with.

“It’s not that I’m heartless. It’s just that after so many bad things happen to you, I don’t know,” Chase said Tuesday afternoon, wiping away tears while she recalled a life of turmoil, pain, tragedy and the deaths of loved ones.

“I didn’t want to be alone. He was the only guy who was ever nice to me.”

She told The Patriot that she has had many close friends die, even holding some of their hands as they passed.

The pair lived together for ten years, though Chase says that they were not a couple. Back in December, Chase says Zigler feel asleep in his chair and never woke up. She says that she kept his body clean and chatted with him as if he was still alive. They would even watch NASCAR races together, she says. One would think Chase would not be able to handle the stench of his corpse, but she said it didn’t stink.

Zigler’s body was discovered after his family began to worry about his whereabouts. They called police and cops went to Chase’s house where they discovered Zigler’s corpse sitting in a chair. Chase, who cashed Zigler’s social security checks after his death, is worried about the police investigation and fears that she will serve time for what she did. But she can’t even get her own head around what she did and why.
“I know this is horrible, but after awhile, you get,” Chase paused and started to tear up. “I don’t know what you call it, I don’t know.”
