The Broward man left decomposing in his backyard for at least three days before anyone realized he had died was killed, the Broward Sheriff's Office said Tuesday.
Richard Isaac, 54, was a homicide victim, according to the medical examiner's office. A BSO press release did not specify how exactly Isaac was killed.
No suspects have been identified.
Isaac was found behind a rooming house at 2844 NW Sixth Ct. on June 16.
The body was in the same place -- rotting -- for an entire weekend.
The afternoon of June 13, a co-worker of one of the home's occupants stopped by to pick up a resident. No one answered the door, so the man walked around back.
When the visitor made it to the backyard, he saw Isaac but thought he was passed out, not dead.
When the visitor returned Monday, he saw Isaac in the same place, and called BSO.
