Body of Elderly Moscow Man Found by Family 18 Months After Death

The body of a Moscow man in his 70s was discovered in his apartment by relatives 18 months after he died, the Interfax news agency reported Thursday, citing an unnamed source in law enforcement.

The septuagenarian's 38-year-old daughter told law enforcement authorities earlier this week that she had discovered the lifeless body of her father in his apartment in eastern Moscow, according to the report.

Medical examiners concluded that the man had died 18 months ago.

Police are trying to establish the circumstances of the elderly man's death and ascertain why his family had not been in touch with him for so long, the Interfax report said, adding that Moscow police had confirmed the source's account.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
