    A preliminary autopsy lists the cause of death as "morbid obesity."

    But you GOTTA wonder, where did all her waste go?? Did it just merge with the couch, too?? Or maybe, it formed a hybrid anus for which she could have her putrid waste siphoned through!!! No, probably just absorbed over two and a half years into it, and maybe into her skin, until her, her feces and piss, and the couch were now finally ONE, all together. It`s the circle of life. Order pizza, shiit yourself, piss in your pants. I would imagine the mound of shiit under/between/in her butt-cheeks would have eventually LIFTED her off the couch, merely by it`s sheer volume. Mmm, must`ve felt good to poop in your pants all those years. Headline should read "Fat lazy Bitcsh dies of laziness on a shiit-couch." I hope all the "obesity-activists" of the world are proud. Probably the equivalent mode of death of what would warrant 17 virgins in the muslimaniatic religion. This is Obesetism at it`s pinnacle!!!

    That so makes me want to go back to Dublin Fire Brigade (not). What most people don`t realise is that she may have had a condition that caused her to get that fat. Like when I was out with a martial art injury and couldn`t go to the gym for about a year.

    Tedweird, are you retarded? How isn`t obesity a problem. Her obesity is OBVIOUSLY directly related to her not moving for two years. Although it IS her fault, i also place blame on the people who knew her and knew of her situation. There had to have been people who were doing this for her, such as supplying her food, paying her bills, ANYTHING THAT REQUIRED MOVING. How the hell didn`t they do something about this. Seriously, something is messed up with this story.

    Just to dispel some of the rumors/questions going around, go to the before-posted link at http://www.palmbeachpost.com/localnews/c...

    It will answer a lot of questions I`m sure. Such as that she had a boyfriend or someone who got her groceries and lived with her. o_O

    And at least for the story in that link, that Green Couch picture is not related. The story says it was beige/brown.

    As for the story; Wow, that`s really sick. Especially the skin being grafted to the fabric. --;

    The ironic thing is the sponsor ad below the article. It`s for a weight loss company.

    the reason the ad below was for a weight loss company is because ad`s are becoming intuitive of the site that they are being put on, sort of like why you see a hundred commercials for nike golf during a golf match on tv. No one did it on purpose, its all done electronically, usually by google :)

    That is crazy. How could somebody get to that state? Or I guess a better question is how could whoever was bringing food to her allow her to get to that state. It must have been a sad existence for her to slowly melt into a couch for years.

    Maybe you should all watch the episode of Nip/Tuck. It kind of explains a lot. That was the first thing I thought of when I saw this article, so they obviously got the story line from that. No one can make anyone do anything. In the show, her daughter said, "Mom, if you don`t get up and do something I`m sorry, but I can`t see you like this." You can`t force anyone to do anything, you can`t MAKE a fat person diet and you can`t MAKE an anorexic eat. I`m not too sure about the waste, but things biodegrade and it was probably all dissolved into the couch or something. The photo that was posted was obviously photo-shopped, it looks so fake... In the show, her husband loved her and wanted to keep her alive so he brought her food, even though he hated and disagreed what had become of her. This is very sad to have actually happened... I never would have imagined.

    Why the people in the states are so fat? I`ve seeb them, mostly the women are so fat all of them! Must be a very wrong diet.

    I have to admit that yes this person did a horrible thing letting herself go that badly, however it is somewhat hard to just get on a diet and immediately lose like 300lbs, its hard to lose 20 fast too. Sure people may say lap banding but that is expensive and dangerous, and some people dont even realize they are getting to the morbidly obese stage until they are there. I myself feel very sorry for this woman and my sympathy goes out to her family. I know this article is old but still...
