Police: Severely decomposed body found on roof of Miami Shores home

MIAMI SHORES, FLA. (WSVN) - Police are investigating after a severely decomposed body was found on the roof of a Miami Shores home.

Miami-Dade Police and Fire Rescue responded to the house, located near North Miami Avenue and Northwest 110th Street, Thursday night.

According to  investigators, the house has been abandoned for years.

Neighbors said this is highly unusual for their typically quiet neighborhood. “I don’t know. It looks like something bad happened,” said neighbor Jean Franck. “Seventeen years and I’ve never seen anything like this before.”

Miami-Dade Police said they do not know the race or age of the male body.

People who live nearby are now left concerned and disturbed. “That sounds weird,” said Corsin Barblan. “It’s a safe neighborhood normally.”

The investigation is ongoing.
