Couple Makes Grizzly Discovery In New Apartment

A couple of 18-year-olds were excited to be out on their own in New York City renting an apartment together. The would-be roommates moved in only to discover that the previous owner hadn't totally vacated.

The two unnamed 18-year-olds rented an apartment, and upon moving in they discovered a dead body. The body was wrapped in a shower curtain and smelled beyond horrific-- neighbors reported that the smell had been around for a while, and made it hard for people to sleep at night.

Police investigated and identified the dead man as Sidney Harris. The 64-year-old ex-con had been wrapped in a plastic shower curtain and then in blankets. He lived in the Bronx apartment, then suddenly went missing. The landlord assumed Harris had moved out and didn't expect him to come back.

Harris died of being repeatedly beaten over the head. His skull had multiple fractures. The killer left an oddly considerate note, which read, "Sorry for the smell."

Police are now searching for the killer. And most likely, the two 18-year-olds are searching for a new apartment.
