The body which was decomposing was clad in black and red shorts with his left arm stiffened in the air and the skin peeling off. Further inspection of the body by the police also revealed his swollen tongue sticking out of his mouth with blood oozing from his nose and mouth.

A bottle of wine, an empty bitters bottle, and a bottle filled with water and a mobile phone were found at the scene.
