( 4UMF NEWS ) Body Found Next To Note Saying ‘Sorry For The Smell’:
The body of a murdered Bronx ex-con — his remains wrapped up in plastic and blankets — was found near a note apparently by the killer that read, “Sorry for the smell,” police sources said Wednesday.
The note was found by a couple who was allowed to move into victim Sidney Harris’ apartment after the landlord hadn’t seen him for a while, the sources aid.
Harris, 64, was found cocooned in plastic and blankets inside his Arthur Ave. apartment about 9:40 p.m. on Monday. He died of multiple skull fractures, according to the city Medical Examiner.
It was not immediately known how long Harris’ body had been in the apartment before it was discovered, but neighbors told the Daily News that there was a foul odor coming out of the apartment on Monday. The smell was so bad that one neighbor couldn’t sleep.
Police sources said that the body was discovered by a young couple moving into Harris’ apartment.
Another tenant, possibly the building manager, offered to rent the apartment to them if they took out Harris’ belongings.
The tenant told investigators that he believed Harris was at the hospital and “wouldn’t be back,” police sources said.
The couple were moving Harris’ things out of his apartment when they found a foot sticking out of a bundle of blankets.
Blood was found in the apartment, as well as the apologetic note, officials said.
Cops were trying to identify the killer Wednesday.
Apologies, but no related posts were found.
