A man discovered the decomposing body of a friend he was hosting after returning to his Limassol flat following a week’s absence.
The Polish man told police on Wednesday evening that he found his friend, also a Pole, unconscious in bed, saying he had been staying at the apartment for the past two months.
The man immediately called an ambulance and the police, who rushed to the scene only to find out that the dead 52-year-old’s body was in an advanced state of decomposition.
The possibility of the death being a criminal act was ruled out. An autopsy is due to be carried out on Thursday.
Reports say the deceased had alcohol related problems.
