Police said foul play is not suspected in the death of Perry Bay resident, Henderson ‘Bongoniah’ Philip, whose decomposing body was found in his home on Sunday.
However, lawmen said that they are awaiting the results of a post-mortem to determine if someone may have caused harm to the 62- year-old.
Philip, originally of Rolston Street, Ottos New Town, was discovered in the small wooden structure at approximately 6:30 pm by a friend who called 911.
Police arrived on the scene and found the deceased on the floor of the one-bedroom house.
Neighbours told OBSERVER media that Philip lived alone behind Bargain Centre Supermarket at Perry Bay. They described the deceased as a heavy drinker who also smoked.
George Philip said that his youngest brother, who was nicknamed Bobo as a child, was the last of their parents’ five children.
The older sibling said Henderson suffered a stroke some years ago, and had been ill for a while. The dead man was a shoemaker in his youth, and his older brother recalled that one of his last jobs was as a souvenir craftsman.
He was the father of at least four children
