The body of an elderly Singapore man was found buried in his home under trash piled as high as the ceiling.

The 76-year-old suspected hoarder had no running water or electricity, the Strait Times reports.

Firefighters spent more than hour digging through newspapers, clothing and plastic bags Monday night before they found the body. Neighbours had complained of a foul odour.
