NY Man Allegedly Kept Dead Grandmother in Garbage Bags for Months, Feared Becoming Homeless

A New York City man kept his grandmother’s corpse wrapped in 10 garbage bags for six months before a concerned relative led police to the discovery, officials say.

The body was identified as 85-year-old Erika Kraus-Breslin, who died in May, WPIX reported.

WPIX reported that her grandson, 30-year-old Christopher Fuhrer, was arrested by police for covering up his grandmother’s death.

Fuhrer allegedly put air freshener in a fan to minimize the smell that began the day after she died, police said.

Officers arrived at Kraus-Breslin’s home on Wednesday at the direction of a concerned family member when Fuhrer answered the door.

Fuhrer directed the officers to the bedroom where Kraus-Breslin’s decomposing corpse lay on the floor.

Fuhrer faces charges for not reporting the death to a health officer, burial/body removal without permit, and improper burial, police said.

A medical examiner will determine Kraus-Breslin’s cause of death.
