    Exclamation German Man Found Dead in Bed 7 Years Later

    Have you ever lost something and found it in an unexpected place much later? Perhaps you misplaced a wallet, your keys, or your driver's license- but most times such things can be replaced. Not in this case.

    The corpse of a deceased German man was discovered alone in bed Thursday afternoon, nearly seven years after the man supposedly passed away. Police in the German city of Essen said that the man was 59-years old when he died, inferring that the man passed sometime near the turn of the century. November 30, 2000 is the projected date-of-death for the man who was single and unemployed when he died. Police believe he died of natural causes.

    The man received a letter from the Welfare Office the day he died. Next to his body, police found a pack of cigarettes, a television guide, and some Deutschemark coins (which have been out of circulation since Germany switched over to the Euro). The man apparently died in the possession of objects that are a must in any hip German bachelor pad.

    The man's apartment was located in a building that shares space with numerous office buildings and other apartments. Although many of those apartments are now vacant, one would assume the smell of a several-year-old rotting corpse would have alerted a person or two over the years. Apparently not.

    Certainly the most interesting part of this story lies in the fact that nobody noticed that their grandfather/ friend/ shuffleboard partner had been missing. "No one missed him. No missing person report was ever filed," said local police. Somewhere in western Germany, an individual has got to be kicking himself for forgetting about the existence of a loved one.

    This incident is reminiscent of several other cases where a person was found dead a very long time after they actually passed. In February earlier this year, a New York man was found deceased in front of his television more than a year after he kicked the proverbial bucket. The television was, of course, still on (and no doubt awkwardly tuned in to something embarrassing, like the Oxygen Channel).

    The Germans apparently have a penchant for ignoring their deceased. In December of 1999, a German man in the city of Bonn sat dead in his armchair for five years with his TV blaring and his Christmas tree lights on before someone discovered him. "Someone said once that he had gone off to a home, I didn't ask any more," said Monika Majarres, who lived in the same block of flats as the man.

    The decomposed corpse of a German man was found alone in his bed after nearly seven years, police in the western city of Essen said Thursday.

    The police said in a statement the man was 59 and unemployed at the time of his death. He most likely died of natural causes on November 30, 2000, the date he received a letter from the Welfare Office found in the apartment, police said.

    Next to the dead man's bed police found cigarettes, an open television guide and Deutschemark coins, which came out of circulation after the euro was introduced in 2002.

    The man's apartment was in a building with offices and apartments, many of which are now empty.

    "No one missed him. No missing person report was ever filed," the police said.

    کشف تنهاترین مرد جهان

    پیکر متلاشی شده یک مرد آلمانی، روز پنجشنبه پس از هفت سال در بسترش پیدا شد.

    به گزارش خبرگزاری رویترز، پلیس شهر اسن آلمان در بیانیه*ای اعلام کرد که این مرد هنگام مرگ 59 سال داشته و بیکار بود.

    به گفته پلیس به احتمال بسیار، این مرد در 30 نوامبر سال 2000 به مرگ طبیعی فوت کرده است.

    سی*ام نوامبر 2000 تاریخ نامه* اداره رفاه است که در آپارتمان این مرد پیدا شده است.

    در کنار بستر مرگ مرد، پاکتی سیگار، مجله* برنامه*های تلویزیون و سکه*های مارک آلمان یافت شد.

    آپارتمان این مرد در ساختمانی است که واحدهای آن تقریبا خالی است.

    پلیس می*گوید در این هفت سال هیچ کس سراغی از وی نگرفت.

    Thats pretty sad.

    Unfortunately this happens quite a lot in the western culture - when people get older they are forgotten and ignored.

    I'm NEVER gonna put my parents in an old person's home.
