A Florida man who bought a home at an auction got the surprise of a lifetime when he went to look mow the lawn on Tuesday and found a corpse on the bedroom floor.
In Cape Coral, Florida police are now conducting a death investigation at the home, where neighbors say they haven’t seen or heard from the previous homeowner in years.
William Wilson the homes current owner, purchased the home on SE 19th Lane for $96,000 and went over earlier this week to mow the lawn when he found a rotting corpse next to the master bedroom bed.
‘You couldn’t tell who it was,’ Mr Wilson told the News-Press. ‘You couldn’t tell if it was a male or a female… it’s disappointing and a sad thing that nobody cared enough to check.’
There was also a bird cage and a pile of feces on the living room floor. The most recent piece of mail was from November 2011 and the property taxes hadn’t been paid for the past three years.
