A decomposing corpse found sitting in a chair at a California home had been there for three years, according to officials.
Police say that a man who died last month in Jackson, California, is suspected of leaving his father’s body at their home in order to keep accessing his money.
Randall Freer, 63, died as he left a business in the foothills of the Sierra Nevadas, according to Calaveras County Sheriff’s Office Lt Greg Stark.
A sheriff’s deputy then went to notify the man’s family at a home in Wallace, California, where he heard a fan running and saw a dead person sitting in a recliner.
Evidence at the scene suggested the body had been there for a number of years, according to Lt Stark.
