Whipple said it appeared the 35-year-old Ness City woman?s skin had grown
around the seat. She 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.?
Whipple said investigators planned to present their report Wednesday to the
county attorney, who will determine whether any charges should be filed
against the woman's 36-year-old boyfriend.
?She was not glued. She was not tied. She was just physically stuck by her
body,? Whipple said. ?It is hard to imagine. ... I still have a hard time
imagining it myself.?
He told investigators he brought his girlfriend food and water, and asked
her every day to come out of the bathroom.
?And her reply would be, ?Maybe tomorrow,?? Whipple said. ?According to him,
she did not want to leave the bathroom.?
The boyfriend called police on Feb. 27 to report that ?there was something
wrong with his girlfriend,? Whipple said, adding that he never explained why
it took him two years to call.
Police found the clothed woman sitting on the toilet, her sweat pants down
to her mid-thigh. She was ?somewhat disoriented,? and her legs looked like
they had atrophied, Whipple said.
?She said that she didn?t need any help, that she was OK and did not want to
leave,? he said.
