Somebody's seen Psycho one too many times...

A Tombstone horror film producer was arrested last week after his mother's skeletal remains were found in her home -- where they'd sat for about a year, despite the man knowing she was dead the entire time.

Timothy Fattig, 34, was arrested Wednesday after his suspicious behavior during a welfare check of his 68-year-old mother, Jill Fattig, led them to her decomposed body.

The Tombstone Marshal's Office received a call last week asking they do a welfare check on the 68-year-old woman. The marshal went to Fattig's home, but nobody answered the door.

The marshal decided to check in with the woman's son to see if he knew anything about his mother's whereabouts. Timothy Fattig told the marshal his mother was in a Tucson hospital.

When the marshal found that to not be the case, he went back to Fattig, who told him his mother had been dead for about a year

The marshal got a search warrant for Jill Fattig's home, where they found her skeleton.

Timothy Fattig told the marshal that when he found his mother dead he was so overcome with grief that he didn't report it. As her body decomposed -- for a year -- Fattig told people she was in the hospital, according to the Arizona Daily Star.

Fattig is an author and historian who wrote a biography of Wyatt Earp. According to his Facebook page, he works for Desert Screams Productions, a production company that focuses on making horror films.

Timothy Fattig was arrested on suspicion of negligent homicide. He was booked into the Cochise County Jail on a $40,000 bond.

If it's found that Fattig died of natural causes, charges against her son will likely be downgraded to failure to report a death.

Given Faddig appears to have exactly 0 credits on the IMDB, but does have a book about Wyatt Earp available through Amazon, the headline should really be "Western Author's Mother's Skeletal Remains Sat in Home For a Year." But where's the salacious hysteria there?

Good comments. Docbob498th I agree.

@Expertshot, I wouldn't guess it was "snuff", that's a senior citizen in the closet. But on the contrary, using a real life decomposing skeleton in a horro flik, isn't such a bad idea.

I'd think there would be a warrant to try to discover if there was any footage made by Desert Screams in which a decomposing body appears emanating soon from the prosecutor's office - Snuff film? Anyone's guess.
