The decaying body of an Army veteran went undiscovered at a Massachusetts facility for a month — after no one bothered to look in an emergency exit stairwell, according to the Department of Veterans Affairs.
A 45-page report released Thursday detailed the disappearance and death of Timothy White, 62, whose “significantly decayed” corpse was discovered in June 2020 in a stairwell at the Bedford Veterans Quarters in Massachusetts.
He was reported missing from his single-occupancy room on May 13 and lived just down the hall from where his body was later found nearly a month later on June 12 – having never left the building, according to the report by the VA’s Office of Inspector General.
Another resident at the facility ultimately found White’s body. RIP 🙏🏽💔🇺🇸
