Bad smell leads to dead body

Saudi police smashed their way into an apartment to find a dead Eritrean man dangling from the ceiling fan and unravel the mystery of bad smell that had irked neighbours, a newspaper said on Saturday.

Residents of the three-storey building in the southern province of Jazan close to the border with Yemen had told friends of the dead man, 40, about the bad smell coming from his flat, 'Alwatan' said.

“His friends phoned the police, who came and broke the door…they found his body hanged from the ceiling fan…preliminary investigation indicated the man had committed a suicide.”
