The decomposing body of a senior citizen was found in La Plaine on Tuesday, the police have confirmed.
He has been identified as 81-year-old James Bruney.
Police PRO Inspector John Carbon said Bruney, who lived alone, was found around 10:00 am after neighbours became suspicious.
It is reported that the senior citizen was last seen alive two days prior to the discovery of his body.
The police said the body was in a mild state of decomposition and he was pronounced dead by the district medical officer.
No foul play is suspected.
A post-mortem and coroner’s inquest will be convened to determine the exact cause of death.
Bruney is said to have played a role in changing the structure of the association to facilitate more involvement of local farmers in the organization.
