Less than 24 hours after the decomposing body of Norris Tingling, 57, of Majestic Alley, was recovered from within his house, at about 10:00 Monday morning, the decomposing body of Francisco Reyes, 65, of Indianville, was found in his house.
Police who went into the house to recover him reported that there were no signs of foul play on his body, and he was nude. They have declared that he died of natural causes.
Neighbors reported that Reyes was last seen on Friday, but throughout the weekend, he was not seen, and they became concerned.
On Wednesday, a neighbor went to Reyes’ house and knocked on his door, but got no response. He noted, however, that the door was bolted from inside.
Neighbors then called police, who made a forced entry into the house, and that was when they found Reyes decomposing in his house.
The body has since been buried.
