Police found the body of a man in an apartment in the Lasnamäe district of Tallinn last week, with evidence leading investigators to believe that he may have passed away nine years ago.

A medic told Õhtuleht today that the body had long been decaying, adding that a calender and newspapers found in the apartment dated to 2004, which is also the last year the man was seen alive, according to initial information.

The man's upstairs neighbor told the daily that he had lived there for five years and the previous residents told him the dead man was in prison.
