Trick Or Treat

This is really bizarre. From the LA Times:

A 75-year-old dead man sat decomposing on his Marina del Rey balcony for days because neighbors thought the body was part of a Halloween display and didn’t call police.

Mostafa Mahmoud Zayed had apparently been dead since Monday with a single gunshot wound to one eye. He was slumped over a chair on the third-floor balcony of his apartment on Bora Bora Way, said cameraman Austin Raishbrook, who owns RMG News and was on scene Thursday when authorities found the body.

The poor guy caught it in the eye. Sitting on his balcony all by his lonesome and POW.
No one to miss him?
No one to check on a 75 year old man in four days? Very sad, very sad.
They must have smelled him from the street finally.
