Body Found Where Christian Bale Lived

2/11/2010 3:52 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Christian Bale lived in a home where a human body was buried ... and he had no idea, cops tell TMZ.

Christian Bale body found
We've learned in 2008 while Bale was filming "Terminator: Salvation" in Albuquerque, New Mexico, the body of Michael Snyder lay in the front yard of the home he was renting.

Snyder had been missing for 8 years ... buried at the home the entire time. The body was discovered last week after cops received a tip. Snyder's ex-wife has been arrested and charged with murder.

Bale obviously had no idea the body was in the yard.

Her defense could be she just wanted to save money on burial costs.

I'm wondering how many times Snyder rolled over in his grave from Bale's swearing. Probably enough to carve out a storm cellar, pool, basement...

I live in Albuquerque and the body was buried 6 feet underground so that's probably why Christian didn't think anything was odd about his surroundings. Larry is right NM doesn't exist for the rest of the U.S. Sad...

It's a good thing Christian Bale didn't know the body was buried out there. Because if he found the body, he probably would have started yelling at it.
