Woman sat on boyfriend’s toilet seat for two years, authorities say

March 12, 2008

— Deputies say a woman in western Kansas became stuck on her boyfriend's toilet after sitting on it for two years.

Ness County Sheriff Bryan Whipple said it appeared the 35-year-old Ness City woman's skin had grown around the seat. She initially refused emergency medical services but was finally convinced by responders and her boyfriend that she needed to be checked out at a hospital.

"We pried the toilet seat off with a pry bar and the seat went with her to the hospital," Whipple said. "The hospital removed it."

Whipple said investigators planned to present their report today to the county attorney, who will determine whether any charges should be filed against the woman's 36-year-old boyfriend.

"She was not glued. She was not tied. She was just physically stuck by her body," Whipple said. "It is hard to imagine. ... I still have a hard time imagining it myself."

He told investigators he brought his girlfriend food and water, and asked her every day to come out of the bathroom.

"And her reply would be, 'Maybe tomorrow,'" Whipple said. "According to him, she did not want to leave the bathroom."

The boyfriend called police on Feb. 27 to report that "there was something wrong with his girlfriend," Whipple said, adding that he never explained why it took him two years to call.

Police found the clothed woman sitting on the toilet, her sweat pants down to her mid-thigh. She was "somewhat disoriented," and her legs looked like they had atrophied, Whipple said.

"She said that she didn't need any help, that she was OK and did not want to leave," he said.

She was taken to a hospital in Wichita, about 150 miles southeast of Ness City. Whipple said she has refused to cooperate with medical providers or law enforcement investigators.

Authorities said they did not know if she was mentally or physically disabled.

Police have declined to release the couple's names, but the house where authorities say the incident happened is listed in public records as the residence of Kory McFarren. No one answered his home phone number.

The case has been the buzz Ness City, said James Ellis, a neighbor.

"I don't think anybody can make any sense out of it," he said.

Ellis said he had known the woman since she was a child but that he had not seen her for at least six years.

He said she had a tough childhood after her mother died at a young age and apparently was usually kept inside the house as she grew up. At one time the woman worked for a long-term care facility, he said, but he did not know what kind of work she did there.

"It really doesn't surprise me," Ellis said of the bathroom incident. "What surprises me is somebody wasn't called in a bit earlier."

OldEnuf..

Excellent comparison ot "Seven". And a touch of "Saw" too, you think? I mean, just how clean could he have been keeping that bathroom with her in it.

Remember the KC area story about the woman who lived on the floor, and her skin sores healed into the carpet fibers? Her husband was taking care of her.

When I try to imagine being COMPLETELY out of my mind, then multiply that by 10... I still don't see how you can sit like that for even a week. Wow. This is one of the most self-destructive things I've ever heard of. Like something from the movie Seven, but self-imposed over a two year period.

Everyone connected to this case will need therapy, for years.

The smell... The pain...

I'm torn between wishing I'd never read this, and wanting hourly updates.

BigPrune. I hope you are kidding, because I immediately thought of someone that strange and afraid. But last I heard she was in a facility, but she gets out every couple of years.

The news said she was afraid of her family finding her, bad childhood. He stated on camera that he will be there for her, no matter she needs. They are suggesting that she may be in a wheelchair for the rest of her life. Her legs atrophied.And lord knows what else,She's being treated for infection now.

The woman is originally from Lawrence and her boyfriend comes from San Francisco. They moved to Ness City in search of Nessie, the mythological sea monster.

She sure was dedicated to her boyfriend to hang around for two years. Nothing like that happens in Lawrence. They come and go and usually beat each other up. Why cna't we have something like this couple in Lawrence? why?

Apparently if you drop your liberals in a conservative fashion, it takes two years.

Gretchen, thanks for the link, and Jonas for the info. I don't usually get to the Seattle paper until after 9-10pm.

Poor little boys. A child I know was involved with killing another, has tried to kill herself many times, her life is wrecked. I hope she can pull through.

One way to get out of shoveling sidewalks. This couple will fit in quite nice in Lawrence. Look for them to be on the next city commission. She wanted to get up for the move so she can vote in the upcoming USD 497 school election.

The comment about where he went to the tollet was the firs thing an 87 year old woman asked me today. The very first thing. I think the trailer maybe had a bath and a 1/2 in it. It looked like a rather large mobile home. His and hers johns. I too find, the two years a bit hard to believe. In two years no one came to the trailer and needed to use the bathroom and was told "oh, sorry it's occupied" "she's busy". Two years, but then if one thinks about it, we have a local goverment that has it's head stuck in the stool for over 20 years.

Two years? Don't believe it at all. It is not physically possible. Involuntary movement of the body during sleep and waking periods says it can't happen.
