Elderly Homeless Man Found Dead In Portable Potty
It’s surmised he lived in the toilet for months.
The man’s remains were discovered Sunday by a security guard at a municipal boat launch on 9 Mile Road near Jefferson Avenue in St. Clair Shores, just outside the Detroit city limit.
Police said there were no obvious signs of foul play or trauma to the man’s body. An autopsy will be conducted Tuesday to determine a cause of death.
Police said the remains were so decomposed, it appears the man could have been dead inside the portable toilet for about five months. Investigators also believe the man might have been using the portable toilet as a shelter during the cold winter. His identity is still not known.
