Man Kept Father's Dead Body for Five Months


A man left his father's dead body in bed for nearly five months so he could claim his benefit payments - even telling his innocent 10-year-old daughter that her grandfather was just asleep.
Christopher Blackburn was jailed for three years after police found the body of his father Guy, 54, on a bed in the living room of his home in Penwortham, Lancashire.

Blackburn was living at the house alongside the body but kept quiet about his father's death as he pocketed over £2,000.
