78-year-old Angel Garcia Dominguez had to be pried away from the decaying body of his 88-year-old wife even after authorities broke into their apartment. Authorities had received complaints of severe odors coming from the apartment from the neighbors.
Peruvian authorities in Rimac believe Anita Ramirez Bambaren had been dead for more than 10 days. The spouse would not let authorities in when they tried to enter; when they did they found the elderly man in shock and severely malnutritioned. Some are reporting he might of stopped eating when his life-long partner died.
The couple had lived together at La Avendia El Sol for over 15-years and had not been seen in recent days.
Currently Garcia Domingez is in the Arzobispo Loayza Hospital recovering.
