The death of an elderly person living alone is often subject to certain questions. The question of a possible crime is often raised implicitly. On Friday April 8 in Nantes, a 71-year-old man died suspiciously. It was in Saint-Sébastien-sur-Loire that the corpse of this septuagenarian was discovered. His body was already in a state of decomposition, according to Presse Océan. A death that could go back more than two months, according to the media.

It was the municipal police and the social landlord who discovered the body. This is an intervention following an alert given by the neighbors. The body of the unfortunate was lying under a pile of rubbish and objects. An autopsy will be performed to determine the exact cause of death earlier this week.

The man’s death is suspicious

Presse Océan indicates that no weapon was found at the scene. Despite this, his death was deemed suspicious. Moreover, an investigation has been opened to discover the end of the story. “The technical and scientific police, dispatched to the scene, worked to identify the clues to identify the victim and shed light on the circumstances of his death,” the media reported. This man was a tenant who lived alone since his wife was hospitalized in Saint-Jacques.
