Meet Man Who’s Been Sharing Bed With Dead Wife For 16 Years

For Better For Worse: Meet Man Who’s Been Sharing Bed With Dead Wife For 16 Years

An old man has left people in shock after digging up dead wife’s remains, sealed them in a plaster sculpture and decided to sleep in the same bed with her for the last 16 years.

Despite the opposition of relatives and fellow villagers, Le Van says he has no plans of letting his wife go.

Van and his wife were married in 1975. They hardly knew each other, let alone share romantic feelings, but their parents had arranged their union from a very young age, and soon after Van returned from military service, they were wed.

As they got to know each other, the newly-wedded couple soon fell in love and lived happily.

They had seven children and led a frugal but peaceful life, until one day in 2003 when Mr Van, who was working away from home, got news that his wife had suddenly died.

He rushed home, but barely got to see his spouse’s face for a few minutes before she was buried.

At first, a shocked Van spent most of his time, night and day, at the cemetery, sleeping on his wife’s grave, but after a few months he started worrying about bad weather and rain.

He decided that the best way to stay close to his deceased wife was to dig a tunnel into her grave, so he could sleep next to her.

It wasn’t long before his children found out about his new sleeping place, and forbid him to spend his nights at the cemetery anymore. However, he couldn’t bear the thought of letting go of his wife forever.


One night, Van decided that if he couldn’t sleep at the cemetery, he would bring his wife’s remains home with him.

When Le Van’s children learned about what he had done, they were furious and demanded that he return their mother’s body to her final resting place, but he refused, saying he couldn’t go on without her.

Neighbors didn’t visit his house for years after learning about the case, and some even alerted authorities.

Police gave up after repeatedly trying to convince the Vietnamese Le Van to rebury the body.
