Do dead bodies from quests such as allies/foes disappear after a while?

I just got the dead thrall power and I want to look for old foes/allies that died to use them, do their bodies stay in the same spot of death forever or they gone?

thanks

Mostly they just lay there forever. It can be hard to tell, cause for the longest time I favored the storm wall with my left and flames with my right, leaving nothing but ash piles everywhere. As near as I can tell, none of those ash piles have disappeared. And many times I have returned to lairs I've already been through and found bodies everywhere, none with any gold on them (a sure sign I was there).
