WICHITA, Kan. - Authorities are considering charges in the bizarre case of a woman who stayed in her boyfriend's bathroom for two years, spending most of her time on the toilet - so that her body was stuck to the seat by the time he called police.
It appeared the 35-year-old Ness City woman's skin had grown around the seat, said Ness County Sheriff Bryan Whipple. The woman 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."
The county attorney will determine if charges should be filed against the boyfriend.
"She was not glued. She was not tied. She was just physically stuck by her body," Whipple said.
The boyfriend, Kory McFarren, agreed to be interviewed Wednesday by the Associated Press. He identified his girlfriend as Pam Babcock.
McFarren, 36, told investigators he took Babcock food and water and asked her every day to leave the bathroom.
"And her reply would be, 'Maybe tomorrow,' " Whipple said. "According to him, she did not want to leave the bathroom."
McFarren told the AP that he wasn't to blame and that it was solely Babcock's choice to remain in the bathroom.
"She is an adult. She made her own decision. It was my fault; I should have gotten help for her sooner; I admit that," McFarren said.
Although authorities said they think Babcock was in the bathroom for two years, McFarren said he wasn't certain how long she stayed there. He said she had a phobia about leaving the room because of childhood beatings.
"It just kind of happened one day. She went in and had been in there a little while, the next time it was a little longer. Then she got it in her head she was going to stay - like it was a safe place for her," McFarren said.
But McFarren said Babcock moved around in the bathroom during that time, bathed and changed into the clothes he brought her.
He said they conversed and had an otherwise normal relationship - except that it all happened in the bathroom.
McFarren, who works at an antique store, said he has taken care of Babcock for the 16 years they have lived together.
You think the guy would of had the sense of mind to actually get help for her sooner. What a world we live in haha
