Bachelor living alone found dead several days later


KUCHING: A 57-year-old man was found dead at his wooden house in Tapah near here yesterday.

It was believed that the bachelor died a few days ago.

The scavenger had been staying alone at the house which belonged to his late mother.

A neighbour felt something amiss on seeing the door to the house shut for a few days with no sound coming from the man’s radio.

He called his elder brothers and they came to check the house yesterday morning, and forced open the door to find the occupant dead.

A police report was made and the case classified as sudden death.
