It has been headlining all news rooms and papers. The mummified remains of a man sitting in his home with the television set on were found in New York just recently. Medical experts diagnosed the corpse to be approximately there for over a year but many are wondering how such a thing would happen without anyone including the neighbors, of noticing the presence of the 70 year old blind man.
Some have called it crazy; some would find it hard to believe that a person would be left in the walls of his home dead for over a year with a TV set on. Some are not elaborating on the possibility of other causes of death but based on all reports made, it seems that Vincenzo Ricardo truly died of natural causes.
The various reactions hold one similar gist. It is truly hard to take companionship or family for granted. The case of Ricardo may serve chills to most people. For others, it is about appreciating the importance of family values.
