My follower from the companions unfortunately died while on a quest. For some reason whenever I walk through a door or fast travel her dead body follows me. I can't search her body to get my dragonplate armour set back and my new housecarl (or anyone else) won't follow me because I apparently already have a follower. I'm tired of dying alone and being over encumbered. The body is face down not and moving.

Are they laying flat on the ground face down, but still move along behind you? If so I've had that, and they're not dead. Once you zone a few times it generally fixes itsself – David Yell Mar 29 '12 at 6:53
Are you playing on PC? If you are, look up the console commands online and find the command to bring the NPC back to life. – Aceofgods Mar 29 '12 at 17:35
She just wants a hug. And your brains. – Ben Brocka Mar 29 '12 at 17:51
@Renan ...Why. Why would you do that to other people. :( – Mana Mar 30 '12 at 23:04
it would really help to know what platform your playing on. – Ender Apr 23 '12 at 14:26
