The decomposing body of an obese man was found stuffed inside a laundry bag in his Bronx apartment Saturday, police said.
The man weighed about 400 pounds and was suspected of selling drugs from his sixth floor apartment at the Justice Sonia Sotomayor Houses in Soundview.
Police responding to another call Saturday noticed a putrid smell outside the apartment. Inside they found the body wrapped in a blood-drenched laundry bag placed in a kitchen closet.
It is believed that he was killed several days ago. Police have yet to formally identify him.
Residents and visitors said they were shocked.
