A 71-year-old man was found dead in his locked apartment in a prone position on the floor of the hallway. The putrefied body was lying with the right side of his face on the floor. The upper limbs were both flexed at the elbows: the right one was underneath the chest, the left one was lying on the ground. The decedent was wearing underwear and socks.
Medical records revealed that the man had suffered from hypertension, diabetes, and stomach problems. The deceased had not been seen for some weeks by other persons.
