A complaint about a foul smell led to the discovery of a Norwegian lying dead in his rental unit at Sunvar Condominiums, Pasy City last week.
Police identified the rotting cadaver as Roy Paulsen. Workers opened the unit after the son of Mr Paulsen came to the unit and found him lying in his bed dead.
An investigation into the matter showed that Mr Paulsen’s wife had left for Ormoc City and he had been alone in the condo unit at the time of his death.
The investigation also uncovered that Mr Paulses was in a dispute with the condominium owners and was asked to vacate the unit for failing to pay his rent.
His body was transported to the police crime laboratory for an official autopsy to determine the cause of death.
Police said that from the scene there appeared to be no foul play in the matte, but a further in-depth investigation will be conducted.
Police have contacted the Norwegian Embassy in Manila for proper disposition.
