Man’s corpse in advanced rot was found after 7 am on Saturday morning on the roof of a house in Polichni, in western Thessaloniki.

As ERT notes, the man lived alone in the basement and he went out quite often to repair the tiles on his roof. It is alleged that he hit while working on the roof and ended up helpless.
In the previous days, he was asking his neighbors for sheet metal to cover the roof of his house. It is estimated that the old man has been dead for 48 hours.
Shortly after 9 o’clock the daughter of the unfortunate man arrived at the scene after being informed of the tragic news.
