Police find partially decomposed body of man in apartment

Posted: Updated:

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Police are investigating the discovery of a partially decomposed body in Philadelphia's Frankford neighborhood.

Authorities say the body of a man was found at about 6 p.m. Tuesday in a third-floor apartment. They say the death is suspicious, but don't know how he died.

The property manager found the body after searching for the source of a foul odor in the building.

Chief Inspector Scott Small tells the Philadelphia Daily News the man lived in the apartment and had not been seen for about three weeks. Neighbors say that's when a strong smell started permeating the building.

An autopsy will be conducted on the man to determine the cause of death.
