Dilapidated house

Charn Janwatchakal has been raising dogs and cats in his home. Although it is a concrete house, this house has no electricity. Charn, who lives alone in this dilapidated house, has only pets as his companions. Charn, who shares water with a neighbor, recently visited the Pet Qasim Bangkok Foundation. Authorities there were shocked to hear what he had to say.

21 years

Authorities did not know what to do when they learned that Charn had lived with his wife's coffin for 21 years. Charn also said he lived with his wife without burying the coffin because he had no intention of leaving her. In addition, he had requested the authorities to assist his wife in performing the funeral rites.

Charn's statement came as a shock to authorities, who said he had made the decision because he was too old and his wife would not be able to attend the funeral if he died.

According to Charn Janwatchakal, he lived with his wife's body, who died in 2001, for 21 years.
