A woman says she eats her late husband's ashes and claims they're 'basically' the only thing she eats. You can see her open up about it here:


Twenty-six-year-old Casie tragically lost her husband Sean to a fatal asthma attack just two and a half years after they met.

Back in 2019, heartbroken Casie told TLC's My Strange Addiction that her 'world stopped turning' following his death and so, she decided to carry his ashes with him everywhere she went.

She explained: "I take my husband everywhere, to the grocery store, shopping, to the movies, out to eat, anywhere I go he goes."

However, alongside spending time with the ashes, Casie admitted she's been eating some of the remains.

She told the TV show: "I guess with the transfer of his cremains some got into the cardboard box as well and that spilled out on my hands

"I didn't want to wipe him off, that's my husband I didn't want to wipe him away so I just licked him off my fingers.

"And here I am today almost two months later and I can't stop, I'm eating my husband."

Casie says she nibbles on the ashes between five to six times a day.

Describing her method, she said: "First I lick my finger and I don't just dip it in, I swirl around to get it caked on there good and then I just eat it.

"It tastes like rotten eggs, sand and sandpaper but I've grown to love that taste, it started off as not wanting to get rid of him and it's progressed into eating him

"I've lost 42lbs since my husband passed away. Basically, the only thing I'm eating are his ashes."

Casie says eating the remains leaves her with feelings of guilt.

She added: "When I open up the urn I get a sense of happiness, it's like an adrenaline rush for me and the more I eat the more excited I get until I realise there's not a lot left.

"Then a few minutes later I feel horrible because I did it.

"It makes me feel embarrassed, ashamed, disgusted with myself, confused, crazy - you gotta be a really sick person to eat someone's ashes."

Casie is also concerned that she'll eat the entirety of her husband's ashes.

"Knowing I already lost a pound [of the remains] is really hard because it's going to run out soon and I don't know if I'll be able to hold it together,"

"I have to stop eating him, I've lost him once, this time it'll be my fault that I lose him again."
