Taipei, Aug. 9 (CNA) A New Taipei resident was found dead by firefighters who broke into his room Friday, while his mother, who lived in the same apartment and had not seen her son for nearly two months, did not suspect anything was amiss.

Firefighters arrived at the apartment of the 63-year-old man, identified only by his family name Wu, after receiving a report from his older brother that there might be a problem, according to a spokesperson for the Xinzhuang Police Precinct.

Wu's brother, who lives in an apartment on a higher floor in the same building in Xinzhuang District, said he called police to the scene after noticing through a crack of the room's door that Wu was lying suspiciously still on his bed, the spokesperson said.

The older brother told police that he had gone downstairs to see his brother because he had not seen him for a while and was wandering how was he doing.    [FULL  STORY]
