A 59 year old man was found laying dead in bed at his home in Larnaca, after not been seen by his neighbours since Tuesday.
Around six yesterday afternoon and following a complaint of strong smell from a house on Phaneromeni Avenue, a fire service crew, accompanied by officers, broke the door open and found the man in a state of decomposition.
The 59 year old was living on his own.
A coroner was called but said that an autopsy was not needed at the scene.
Exact cause of death will be established from a post mortem, to be conducted at a later stage.
