Dead bodies smell especially if not taken care of.

Internal organs begin to decompose, rigor mortis subsides and the body begins to emit pungent odors within 24-72 hours postmortem. Doesn’t appear they were deceased any longer than, possibly, the weekend they visited him.

Coincidentally, there are cleaning services specializing in these matters, highlighted elsewhere today:

So I guess “his wife” didn’t have a name? Pretty poor reporting in this day and age.

Again, daily news where family member kills one another.

Is someone recording all the motives given for these family violence crimes?

Where are all these psychos coming from?

Who knew that you could be arrested for running a red light !

Impressive police work though. Notified at 6:20 PM , find bodies at 7:00 PM, and arrest suspect at 8:00 PM about an hours drive from the scene of the crime.
