A man discovered the decomposing body of a friend he was hosting after returning to his Limassol flat following a week’s absence.
The man from Poland told the police on Wednesday evening that he found his friend, from Poland unconscious in bed, saying he had been living in the flat for the past two months.
The man having witnessed this immediately called an ambulance and the local authorities, who rushed to the scene only to confirm that his 52 year old were dead for some time and had been an decomposed state for some time as well.
The possibility of the death being a criminal act was quickly ruled out. An autopsy is due to be carried out on Thursday.
Reports say the 52 year old Pole had alcohol related problems.
