December 27, 2005 -- Alerted by neighbors' complaints of foul odors coming from a pricey Upper East Side apartment, cops yesterday made a gruesome discovery the rotting corpse of an 87-year-old man stuffed into a suitcase. Police say the man's demented widow had kept his corpse in their apartment because she "didn't know what to do with him."
"I was taking him to Arizona. He always wanted to go to Arizona," wife Carole Duurloo-Fallon, 67, told police while being questioned about her bizarre use of luggage.
She said hubby James Fallon died about two weeks ago, NYPD Inspector Michael Coan said.
Cops went to the 34-story luxury co-op on East 60th Street off Park Avenue at 7:55 a.m. yesterday in response to complaints of an "old, suspicious, foul odor," Coan said.
Inside, police found a suitcase containing Fallon's body, and two women his wife and her 95-year-old mother, who live there.
The wife told cops that after he died she "didn't know what to do with him and put him in a suitcase," Coan said, noting that officers made the grisly discovery "right after" they had had their breakfast.
Police believe the man who had a history of heart trouble died of natural causes, noting that there was no sign of trauma. An autopsy is to be conducted today.
Cops believe that both his wife and his mother-in-law are mentally ill, and authorities do not expect to file criminal charges against them. The women were questioned at the 19th Precinct station house yesterday while police tried to track down their next of kin, particularly the dead man's daughter. They were later released.

"I was taking him to Arizona."
"...because she "didn't know what to do with him."
If DH doesn't get back to work soon, he may suffer a similar fate, LOL!
She should have hauled him over to Ft. Marcy Park and left him there with Vince Foster's gun in his hand. It worked for the last broad that had a spare body to get rid of.
Man in a suitcase
I have to ask, how did they put a dead man in a suitcase? How did old ladies move the suitcase afterwards? If you have ever tried to lug a dead deer, you can appreciate the difficulty. But two very old senial ladies doing it?
Finally, do you think the cops/coroner carried the body to the morgue in the suitcase? Picture it. Medical team leaves the building with a suitcase and throws it in the back of an ambulance.....A forensic specialist is handed a suitcase and is instructed to perform an autopsy....family members brought in to identify the suitcase er rather open the suitcase to identify the body....
I could go on.
Dear Lord! I have been going crazy trying to contact my cousin in New York and finally googled the names only to find this! Carole is only a few years older than I. I was adopted by her mother’s brother and my own 2nd cousin. None of the mail sent to them has ever been returned, including the most recent Christmas card from 2007, and I could never get them on the phone. Now I know why. If you’re wondering, there really is no other family. If anyone knows how I can contact William Fallon, please leave a reply. His father was a wonderful man - highly intelligent and a gentleman in the truest sense of the word. I am grieving for all of them. Sadly signed,
This is primarily a political website. You're unlikely to find anyone here with first-hand information.
It was crazy I tell ya'...doughnut chunks everywhere.
Before there are 8 million replies (maybe)...just letting everyone know this is an old thread from 2005.
How sad! Prayers for these two mentally ill ladies and the rest of the family.
I'm pretty darn cynical about those threads. But this poster used capital letters and punctuation. I'm actually thinking this could be legit.
Things that make you go eeewwwwww!!!
Prayers for you and your family. God bless your efforts to contact William Fallon.
Yep, you’re right. Proper use of the keyboard makes all the difference!!
To vote for Obama.
I posted this years ago. How did it reappear?
I was so blown away by the subject matter that I never noticed the date of the story! Thanks for pointing it out.
I fell for it right away. lol.
It's one of "those" (post 11):

Welcome to Free Republic.
You could start by contacting the New York Post writers of this article, Peta Hellard, Dan Kadison and Dan Mangan. Ask them to check the background information and notes they took for this article. Their notes may contain a contact number for the man you're looking for.
It’s always funny when these old threats get resurrected
Although now that I read how it got resurrected, not so funny in this case.
(note to self: Pay Attention!)
I checked a post to me and scrolled down. I initially panicked thinking “My GAWD! Somebody has been posting with my name! How did they get my log in????!!! I’ve been HACKED!”
I took a sip of Scotch, relaxed and looked again. 2 year old post...and to me of all people.
Question, and I am serious, why did a bunch of folks all of a sudden start posting on this again? I don’t get it. I am curious. What did I miss besides someone replying to a post I made two years ago?
Oct. 3, 2008 .... still searching.
Found my way back to this site again, and to update, after paying for articles from the NY Times, and other newspapers, I got enough info to write a letter to the NYPD precinct; in response, received a phone call from the detective who responded to the call. He, in turn gave me the address and phone number of my cousin’s husband’s son in California; Have not been successful in finding my cousin (Carole Fallon) at all, sent a sympathy card to Jim’s family, but rec’d no response. SO ... how do you deal with losing family with no closure or information? My aunt (Anne Kestner, Carole’s mother) is/was 98 in September, and I don’t even know if she is alive. For anyone who doubts that this is “real”, I assure you it is. If I can ever get up to NYC, I plan to contact the only “Carole Fallon” I can find in the white pages. What a horrible way to find out about your family. It is still a shock.
Carole’s Florida cousin in Tampa
I am so sorry you had to learn such horrible news this way. Best of luck in contacting your relatives. Keep us posted on your progress, we may squabble amongst ourselves on this site but we do care!
