Are There Benefits to Having a Wooden Mannequin-Wife? - Page 2
His wife, Teagan Yvonne Savannah Thjodhild-Nefer has no credentials and comes from a mixed family. Ned said that she lived in Haiti and Sudan before moving to America and has an Icelandic father and Sudanese mother. In a nosy-neighbour moment the deputy has responded to calls about the couple but Ned has never been taken into custody.
Lisa Spear, a social welfare examiner for the Jefferson County Department of Social Services, agrees she has never met anyone like him. She said,
"I wouldn't classify him as dangerous at all. He seemed quite happy in his own little world," she declared.
Spear also said she heard Ned may have once been married to a woman, but that his wife died. "I'm not sure if this is his way of dealing with the death or that this is some way of coping with post-traumatic stress disorder, but he seemed very sincere," she said.
Mr.Kalworovski says he's had some great conversations about music with Ned. Besides photographing town and village signs, rock formations and cemeteries, he loves metal music. Ned’s favorite bands are Godsmack and Disturbed, and one has to maybe wonder if being wooden is an asset if your husband loves this type of music.
Maybe in some men's minds he has the perfect wife. She never asks for the remote control.
