The body of an 83-year-old man was found inside his east Macon home a week after his death, Bibb County Deputy Coroner Lonnie Miley said.
Carl Wilson Jr.’s family had not heard from him since June 12, Miley said.
Relatives called the Bibb County Sheriff’s Office to ask if someone could stop by his house in the 1100 block of Briarcliff Road on Monday evening. Wilson died of natural causes, Miley said.
“I always tell everyone to check on your neighbors,” Chief Coroner Leon Jones said. “I say it every year.”
