Little information available on body found in 400 Towers apartment

posted by Howard B. Owens in 400 Towers, batavia.

The body of a male who had apparently been dead for an extended period of time was found this morning in an apartment in 400 Towers, located at 400 E. Main St. in the City of Batavia.

Det. Eric Hill, spokesman for Batavia PD, said there isn't much information available now because the officer handling the case is off duty and paperwork has not yet been completed.

There is a investigation, but Hill said he couldn't say one way or the other if foul play is suspected or if it's a death by natural causes.

The name of the deceased is not available.

More information will likely not be available until Monday.

small town...ppl talk...this is very sad as I knew this person for many many many years ans was like a brother ...his hand was dealt...lost his wife, house, job, a child....im surprised tho that there are no checks...perhaps a sign that the mail wasn't collected...there are seniors and disabled...maybe a buddy check system...RIP!

This is without a doubt one of the saddest news items we've reported. A senior's worst nightmare...I am speechless.

And, duh!, buddy system already last night and so long.

There is a buddy system there, however it's not mandatory nor perfect. What needs to be implemented is a safety net to catch those that aren't as social or who havent yet gotten on the buddy check system due to a recent change in their health issues.
