Strange Addiction:Woman Eats Husband's Ashes [Video]

During the season two finale of `My Strange Addiction’ viewers were introduced to a woman so grief stricken that she could not stop herself from eating her late husband’s cremated remains.

26-year-old Casie began nibbling on her husband’s ashes soon after receiving them from the crematorium.

“Some of it spilled out on my hands. I didn’t want to just wipe him away, so I just licked it off my fingers.

“And here I am today, almost two months later, and I can’t stop.

Married in 2009, Casie’s husband Shawn died a few months ago after a severe asthma attack.

Since his death, Casie takes her husband’s remains ever where she goes.

'I take my husband everywhere. To the grocery store, out shopping...When I go grocery shopping, I buy the things that he likes.'

Despite odd looks and snickers from people, Casie is seriously devoted to her late husband.

'Some people laugh, they think I'm playing. But I'm serious - I mean that's my husband.'

Casie finds comfort in having his ashes at her side. At one point, she is seen crying, holding the urn close and talking with it: 'Oh baby I miss you.

Casie admits to cooking Shawn’s favorite meals but says she does not eat them.

'When I cook, I cook what he likes. I don't eat it, but I cook it for him.'

Casie’s friends and family are extremely concerned about her recent addiction to eating her husband’s ashes and worry about her health.

The series finale documents Casie’s enrollment into therapy with the hope that she will overcome this very bizarre addiction.

`My Strange Addiction’ airs  Sundays on the The Learning Channel.
