Woman stuck on toilet for 2 years

WICHITA, Kan. -- Authorities are considering charges in the bizarre case of a woman who sat on her boyfriend's toilet for two years -- so long that her body was stuck to the seat by the time the man finally 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 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 boyfriend.

"She was not glued. She was not tied. She was just physically stuck by her body," Whipple said.

Police declined to release the couple's names, but 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 come out.

"And her reply would be, 'Maybe tomorrow,' " Whipple said. "According to him, she did not want to leave the bathroom."

McFarren told the Associated Press 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. But after a while, you kind of get used to it," McFarren said.

He said Babcock had a phobia about leaving the room because of childhood beatings.

I heard that story this morning on Mike and Mike even..

Sometimes I don't leave the bathroom for a half an hour or fortyfive minutes, but that's normally no fault of my own; mainly it is P.F. Chang's.

I know people have severe phobias and all, but even still that seems so extreme as to be barely believable. I’m no doctor, but how could her body not have completely atrophied after two years of sitting in one spot? Physically that seems far from possible.

That was my first impression as well. Who on earth would wait so long to call someone, and why did he decide to do it now?
