Body Found in Millcreek Apartment Dead for Several Weeks

Posted: Updated:

The Erie County Coroner's Office is investigating the case of a a dead body found inside a Millcreek apartment this morning. The man has been dead for several weeks.

The manager of the Granada Apartments called Millcreek Police around 10:30 this morning. However, police and paramedics could not enter the apartment due to the foul odor.  They had to wait for firefighters to arrive with breathing apparatus.

Once inside, the Deputy Coroner Dennis Suscheck could not immediately determine the cause of death.  Foul play is being ruled out because the apartment had not been disturbed. Investigators say an exact cause of death may never be determined due to the deteriorated condition of the body. 

The only information being released at this time is that the deceased is a 50-year old man. Also, several bottles of prescription medicine were taken from the scene.
