The headless body of a missing San Francisco man is said to have been found in an aquarium in his home, several sites reported on Tuesday.
At a press conference, police said the remains were found in 65 years. The house of old Brian Egg was so badly decomposed that they could not be identified immediately.
A neighbor told the San Francisco Chronicle that he had not seen Egg since June and became suspicious when two strangers started answering Egg's door. The neighbor, Scott Free, said he had asked officers to carry out a welfare check at Egg's house. The newspaper reported that the men stood at the door and told the officials that Egg had gone on vacation.
"It was a kind of outskirts," Free told the chronicle of his neighbor. "He had no work and was on the edge, he was eccentric, a holiday seemed very implausible."
About two weeks ago, the Chronicle and KNTV reported that neighbors had called 911 after finding a suspect in a private crime scene. Cleaning trolleys outside Eggs house had seen. Days later, the officers returned with a search warrant and morgues and made the grisly discovery.
The chronicle reported that Egg had lived on Clara Street in the South of Market district of San Francisco since the 1970s. The newspaper reported that he worked as a bartender in a gay bar in the 1980s, but had no permanent job in recent years.
The police said they identified two people of interest in the case. The chronicle reported that the 39-year-old Lance Silva had been arrested on 16 August on suspicion of fraud, theft of an elderly, large-scale theft and vehicle theft in connection with the case.
No murder charges were filed in the murder case
