Police: Missing man has been dead for weeks inside home

By Web Staff – email

MOULTRIE, GA – Emergency workers in South Georgia found a man who'd been dead for weeks inside his home.

Relatives had not heard from Charlie Wilson in nearly three weeks, so they called police.

When officers arrived, they could not get in the door because there was so many boxes covered the front porch of Wilson's home.

Officials say Wilson was a hoarder and his home was packed from floor to ceiling with decades worth of various stuff.

They finally gained access through a rear door, but had to climb over boxes to get to Wilson.

They had to remove the window frame in his bedroom and take his body out that way.

Police believe he died four weeks ago.

The fire department expects to condemn the house.
