Missing pensioner’s body found in his own bin after ‘stomach churning’ smell

The rotting corpse of a pensioner who had been missing for almost four months has been found stuffed inside his bin in his back garden after reports of a stomach-churning smell

According to police in Detroit, Michigan, Walter Dansby, 76, was regularly seen on his front porch before he suddenly disappeared earlier this year.

Walter's family had reported him missing in January, at which time initial searches of the property made by police did not include the bin in the back garden.

It wasn't until a neighbour of the property, in Gable Street, Detroit, noticed a horrific smell coming from the bin that police went back to the property and made the grim discovery.

FOX 2 reports that sources told them Walter's hands were wrapped in a blanket.

Family members who spoke with FOX 2 said Dansby was found in the bin in the back of his house Tuesday afternoon.

Deputy Chief Marlon Wilson told the station: “A neighbour in the area smelled an off odour he went to investigate, called us, and we did, unfortunately, find a victim wrapped in a blanket in the large container in the rear of the location.”

Wilson says the cause of death is unknown as is the person who killed him.

He added: "Right now we are asking the community to provide us with any information the smallest bit of information they might think won't help could lead to something bigger."
