Woman buries her elder brother in living room
VietNamNet Bridge – Mrs. Mai Thi Phuong in Nga Son district, Thanh Hoa province, has buried her elder brother, Mr. Mai Van My, 62, in a hole in this man’s living room.


My was burried in his living room.

As My’s wife worked in Hanoi, Phuong used to bring food to her brother. On November 16, Phuong brought rice to My as usual. Phuong saw her brother lying on the bed so she shook to wake him up but the man did not reply.

Phuong thought that her brother was sleeping deeply so she returned home. Around nearly one hour later, she came back to My’s home and discovered that the man was dead.

The woman silently dug a hole in My’s living room, spread a blanket into the hole, put the body into the hole and buried it. After that, she covered a sedge mat over the tomb and cried. As the woman cried loudly, neighbors flocked to the house to see what happened. They had been surprised that My was dead and Phuong buried him alone.

Local police have investigated the case and examined the corpse. They did not find any sign of a criminal case and handed over the body to the family for burying again, at a local cemetery.

Earlier, the local media reported that a villa in Chau Thanh district, Ben Tre province has a tomb in the living room. The tomb belongs to a woman named Tran Thi Kim Lien, a Vietnamese American. Before she died, Lien told her family to bury her in the villa, which was built by Lien and her husband.

Lien’s younger brother followed her instruction and buried the woman in the village. The brother and his family also lives in this house, together with the tomb.
