You die in your sleep - how long til the body is found?
« on: March 10, 2015, 05:56:53 pm »
I'm unemployed currently.  My roommates are never around.  I don't know how long it takes for corpse-smell to become intolerable but they wouldn't call the landlord until a few days after that point. Something died in the lady susan last year and it was well over a week before anyone noticed (by that time you could not tell what it was.)

Iíll go with, say, 10 days.  Can anyone beat that time?

Not until decomp has set in and my cat has been forced to eat most of my face, making people reluctant to adopt him.

I worry about this sometimes.

I've got two roommates and two cats, so it's going to be a contest of whether they can eat me faster than anyone can find me.

If it's at the dorms, possibly a week or so, specifically because my mom tries to check in on me once a week and got notably freaked during a period where my phone was legitimately not receiving her calls. I'm on terrible terms with my roommates so they wouldn't bother to check on me, unless one of my alarms for getting me up for class went off for hours due to me being kind of dead. I have a friend who might try to check up on me as well but it would still be a few days.

if at home, probably a day, since even though I'm a heavy sleeper my mom would catch on within the day to me not responding to her at all.

My girlfriend would find me like immediately. I would feel so bad if she did. That would be awful.

You know I would say about 12 hours since I live with my parents and my mom is super paranoid about people dying in their sleep, but I've woken up on several occasions to my door being locked still from the previous night. That doesn't even seem to raise any concern. So I guess in all actuality it could take up to a little over a day.

My department would assume the worst if I missed a class without notification, and would probably send someone to my apartment before the day was over.  I don't teach during the summers though.  So anywhere from 4 hours to 40 days depending on the time of the year.

I'd say two days, maybe three. I'd say long enough for my cats to eat me, but my corpse probably won't be fancy enough food.

How long 'til the dead thread is found? Apparently two years and ten months, roughly. God, I didn't even notice the smell!

Probably a few hours because my mother's visiting me.

I would have said a few days (I don't have any local family, my closest friends are scattered all over the U.S., and I'm a bit of a hermit) until the other week, when I was an hour late coming into work due to a doctor's appointment and one of my bosses texted me very worried that I'd been hit by a car. Very warm glowy feeling, realizing that my death wouldn't go unnoticed long enough for my cat to start eating me (which he has my full permission to do).

(It's an old thread but I'm new, so here I post.)
