A 12-year-old boy exploring an abandoned house in Dayton, Ohio discovered a mummified corpse hanging inside a closet on Sunday - that had been there for five years.

According to police, the stunned child had inadvertently found the body of the one-time resident of the house, Edward Brunton, who was in his late 40s at the time of his suicide.

Montgomery County Coroner's Office said that the closet containing Brunton acted as a coffin, protecting his body from decomposing and from animals and insects that may have deteriorated the condition of the corpse.

That kid will have nightmares for life.

And how sad it is that this man had family and "friends" who didn't miss him.......   **nononono*
Character still matters.  It always matters.

Seems to be happening more and more.
