Mummified corpse found in front of blaring tv
New York City police discovered a mummified corpse in an apartment on Sunday, according to TV3 News.
The man, 70-year-old Vincenzo Ricardo, is believed to have died over a year ago in front of his blaring television, Reuters said.
Police discovered the man when they came to investigate a burst water pipe, CNN reports.
The man apparently died of natural causes and the low humidity of his apartment preserved his body, The New York Times said.
