A young Ohio boy's reckless outing in an abandoned house lead to the horrifying discovery of a mummified corpse hanging in a bedroom closet.
The boy rushed to his home and quickly alerted his mother about the dead body he found.
“When he first came across it, he thought it was a dummy, or a mannequin or something,” the mother told reporters.
His mother then went and checked the vacant house and found the body. She contacted the authorities immediately to investigate.
The authorities said that the body was of a 53-year-old man named Edward Brunton. His body was hanging by a belt around its neck. They said that the house was bought in 2009.
The County Coroner Director Ken Betz says Brunton was homeless before inheriting money from his mother to buy the house back in 2009 and most likely died soon after that. Betz says Brunton's death was ruled a suicide caused by hanging by the neck.
So remember kids, you never know what you will find when snooping around an abandoned house. Be warned!
