Claudio Alferi, 58, recently deceased, reportedly spent ten years living with the mummified corpse of his dead mother, Margarita Aimer de Alferi.

He was found lying dead next to his mother Margarita in his home in Carapachay, Buenos Aires, in Argentina.

Emergency services had forced entry into the house after reports of a bad odour emanating from the property since last month.

'The old lady's body was covered in bags and plastic and she still had her winter slippers on,' said a police source.

'It looked like she had been covered up lovingly.'

Mr Alferi was flopped over a chair and had apparently been dead for 30 days but his mother hadn't been seen for a decade.

Her son had reportedly told neighbours she was healthy during that time.

Both mother and son are thought to have died of natural causes but police are investigating claims Mr Alferi kept his mother's corpse over an issue with inheritance.
