Couple find dead body in apartment after it falls out of cupboard

A young couple have made a gruesome discovery while moving into their new flat in New York city.

While unpacking boxes and putting their belongings away into cupboards, the couple discovered the body of a man wrapped up in plastic and blankets alongside a note, allegedly left by the killer, the New York Daily News reports.

“Sorry for the smell” read the letter which was found attached to the dead man, who was later identified as former tenant, 64-year-old Sidney Harris.


It’s unknown how long the body had been in the cupboard before it was found on Monday.

An autopsy revealed that Mr Harris died from multiple skull fractures.

His killer remains on the run.
