The world’s nastiest man dies after taking a bath

An Iranian man who has been nicknamed “the dirtiest man in the world” for living in filth and not washing himself for decades has died at the age of 94, state media reported Tuesday.

Amou Haji, who had not washed for more than half a century, died on Sunday in the village of Dejgah in the southern province of Fars, IRNA news agency reports.

For decades he had avoided eating fresh food and showering for fear of getting sick, the agency quoted a local official as saying.

But “a few months ago, villagers had first taken him to a bathroom to wash himself,” IRNA reported.

“Not long after that, he became ill and finally, on Sunday… he gave up his life,” it reported.

Although Amou Hajji was never married and apparently had no family, the eccentric was viewed with some affection by local villagers, who reportedly built him a log cabin so that he would stop sleeping in a hole in the ground.

He became an object of curiosity in recent years, with people posting videos of his odd behavior, including smoking up to five cigarettes at a time, or smoking manure from a metal plumbing connection.

Photos showed the ascetic sitting in the dirt, his skin and rags black from the dirt.
