This story seems like it came directly from Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho. It’s an interesting portrayal of life imitating art. Arizona Daily Star reports:

A Tombstone man was arrested Wednesday after authorities found the decomposed body of a woman believed to be his mother inside her home.

The Tombstone Marshal’s Office received a call Wednesday to do a welfare check on Jill Fattig, 68, at her home in Tombstone, said Marshal Billy Cloud.

A deputy went to the home but, when no one answered the door, he went to question the woman’s son, Timothy Fattig.

Fattig, 34, told the deputy that his mother was at a hospital in Tucson. When the deputy found this was not the case, he went back to Fattig, who eventually told him his mother had died about a year go.

After obtaining a search warrant, deputies found the skeletal remains of a woman inside Jill Fattig’s home, Cloud said.

    If anyone cares, Fattig was found innocent of the negligent homicide charges and they were dropped.
    So sick of these Psycho comparisons…

    Tim is a nice guy. He was working with Huckelberry Productions at the OK Corral doing the gunfight reenactment back when I used to be a gunfighter at Sixgun City. We used to hit the bars at night together on occassion. Really funny. Quoted Monty Python a lot. Never struk me as the Norman Bates kind of guy. I think he used to do the renisance festival with Steven Keith back in Colorado.
