Mystery as decomposing body found in charred wreckage of house blaze after neighbors reported foul smell | The Sun

A DECOMPOSED body has been found inside the charred wreckage of a house blaze after neighbors reported a foul smell coming from the property.

Cops in Phenix Park, Alabama made the shocking find on June 6 – almost a month after a fire broke out in a mobile home.

Neighbors reported a foul smell when crews started demolishing the burned property at the Highridge Mobile Home Park, WHNT reports.

One reportedly thought the odor was coming from an animal as they had apparently spotted cats in the yard before.

The body was found as crews were clearing the remains of a trailer that had been destroyed, WRBL reported.

Phenix City Fire Chief Kristin Kennedy said: “Real jurisdiction water authority, they’re not required to provide fire protection, water for fire protection.
