    Grim Find in Houston

    A gruesome discovery in a Houston apartment has led adult twin brothers to be charged with the murder of their 89-year-old mother.


    Police say the men allowed Sybil Berndt to die on the floor in their foyer after she fell, then lived with her decomposing, bug-infested corpse for three months.

    Edwin Larry Berndt and his brother, Edward Christian Berndt, both 48, were arrested Monday when police went to check on their mother, prompted by a neighbor who called to say the elderly woman had not been seen since January.

    Edwin Berndt answered the officer's knocks and initially said "everyone was fine and there was no need for the police at their home," according to court documents. The officer insisted she had to see Berndt's mother and he let her into the house.

    The home was in "deplorable condition and smelled terribly," and the elderly Berndt was lying face down on the floor of the foyer, according to the documents. Sybil Berndt was dressed in a nightgown pulled up under her arms and was not wearing underwear. The body was in an advanced state of decomposition and insects were crawling around it, the documents said.

    Letting your mom die after a fall is one deplorable act, but to live with a decomposing corpse?! That's just... words can't describe how disgusting, how stupid that is!

    Hopefully those two haven't reproduced.


    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    Agreed.

    Given that the two brothers were living at home with their 89-year-old mom, I think there could be a good chance the buck stops with them. Hopefully any nieces/nephews fell far from that side of the family tree.

    They covered this story on the news. They are definitely special guys. The kind who talk to themselves and talk to each other in their own made-up language and understand each other. Based on what I saw of them in the coverage, the things described in the article do not surprise me at all.

    49 year old men living with their mother???? i'm pretty sure these 2 haven't touched a woman for over 20 years.


    There are not many crowds or places in the country that have a better impact on the game than at Iowa State. The Cyclone fans are truly a sixth man. The place is so loud and always a fantastic crowd." - Former Kansas and current North Carolina head coach Roy Williams

    I was just thinking "If the Criminal Minds people haven't started into a story like this by now, they will after seeing this." Then I remembered that they already had.

    Really disturbing story.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!
