Decomposed body of pensioner found in Linden house
The decomposed body of 73-year-old Edwin Tudor was discovered early Sunday morning at his Bayroc Wismar Linden house.
The police in a report noted that his sister, Brenda said she last saw him alive on Wednesday at his house when he complained of feeling unwell.
The woman told police that she checked Tudor’s blood pressure and discovered that it was very high and as a result, she told him to lay down for a few minutes. Shortly after, he claimed he felt better.
The police report stated that a neighbour who normally calls out to Tudor whenever she passes his house did same on Sunday after she heard his radio playing but did not see him.
The neighbour told police she decided to call out for Tudor; after not seeing him and getting a reply, she went to his house but was greeted by a foul stench followed by the sight of his decomposed body laying on his bed.
The neighbour immediately informed his family members.
The body was examined but due to the state of decomposition, no marks of violence were seen.
Police said his house was searched and nothing appeared to be disturbed.
The body is at the Pensioner’s Mortuary awaiting a post mortem examination.
