  1. I say the first lead is the caller for 1 reason only no one has called about this shed before and the body has been there under 24 hrs. If the caller is not the culprit, then they either witnessed something or know something whether they would divulge the information or not.

  2. “Upon arrival, police found a body lying in the shed, which appeared to be lying there for under 24 hours, police say.”

    So the police say that the shed appeared to be lying for less than a day. Hm.

  3. It says this man was homeless but it does not mean he is without family, Can we please for once think of this unfortunate mans family? My prayers go out to them.

  4. Yes he did have family so please keep ignorant commits to your self. I just found out it was my uncle. He did die from natural causes. He was a hard worker who did a lot of work for jewish home owners.

  5. I thank those that honestly weren’t being ignorant and thought about his family it was my uncle and we are all terribly hurt by the news but he is now in a better place nd for all those ignorant people that felt the need to talk about a dead man u shall all get wat u deserve soon enough RIP tio love u

  6. R.I.P Daddy !!!! He was not homeless , he had a family that loved him very much . To all the ignorant comments my dad lived his life to the fullest was a very happy man. So please have a little bit of respect all of you and let us ,his family morn before you guys want to trash his death as if it were a joke . Thank You
