Man's ‘badly decomposed' body found inside closet in Texas, police say

A grisly discovery was made in Texas on Thursday when a man’s body was found inside a closet, authorities said. Officers with the San Antonio Police Department arrived at the scene in response to “a call for a DOA,” police said in a statement. At the address was an apartment building, reported.

The location had been “opened by maintenance workers” by the time officers got there as a result of “a strong foul odor,” police said. Within the closet was a man’s “badly decomposed” body, according to the statement. Officials suspect the remains had been there for several months, according to the outlet.

"It's safe to say this is beginning to look more and more like a homicide," San Antonio Police Chief William McManus said.

The Bexar County Medical Examiner’s Office will conduct an autopsy, police said.
