A man's body was found in his home more than a year after his death, with the television still on and his features preserved by dry conditions.

Vincenzo Ricardo, 70, died of natural causes sitting infront of his television. He was not found until a year later when pipes burst and Southampton Town police repsonded to the call.
He lived alone and his face was still preserved because of the homes dry air. No body missed him or checked on him. That is so sad.
Neighbors thought he was in a nursing home or a hospital but did say they commented on not seeing him around but that no one thought to check on him.
I guess he had no family. His bills must have been paid up to date also. Just very sad.
