OXFORD TOWNSHIP (WJRT) (1/3/2017) - A neighbor checking on an Oxford Township man made a gruesome discovery Tuesday afternoon.
The badly decomposed remains of a 59-year-old were found in a seated position on the living room floor of his home in the 1600 block of Lakesview Drive.
The Oakland County Sheriff's Office said the man apparently had died several months earlier based on the degree of decomposition. A cause of death wasn't immediately known.
Detectives from the sheriff's office and an investigator from the Oakland County Medical Examiner's Office launched an investigation into the man's death. Crime scene investigators combed the house for clues.
An autopsy has been scheduled while the investigation continues.
