In 2009, Casie married the man of her dreams, but just two and half years into the marriage, Casie’s husband Shawn died from a severe and sudden asthma attack.
Casie was the filmed as the season finale of TLC’s “My Strange Addiction: I Can’t Stop.”
In the episode she said she began eating her late husband’s ashes after she spilled some while transferring the remains to a more permanent urn.
“I didn’t want to wipe them off because that’s my husband, I don’t want to wipe him away,” Casie told TLC. “So I just licked it off my fingers.”
Two months later, and she’s still doing it, and says she “can’t stop.”
Though eating Shawn’s ashes may be the weirdest part of her addiction, Casie also has other “addictions.”
“I take my husband everywhere, to the grocery store, shopping, to the movies, out to eat. Anywhere I go, he goes.”
