Delft police are continuing the investigation of a 30 year old man who had been butchered in Rossendal on Friday. The decomposing body of Ali Williams was found in his backyard toilet on Sunday afternoon.
His stepson Christopher Marcus came across the corpse after attempting to use the toilet.
Marcus found his stepdad’s body slumped over the toilet seat and the walls drenched in blood.
“When I went to the back I just saw my father sitting there, blood everywhere. He still sat in the backyard on Friday. He was still alive,” Marcus told media
Although Williams had been missing since the Friday, his sister Diana Simons say the family had not thought of reporting him gone.
Forensics had informed Ali’s family that the decomposing body had been in the cubicle for three days already.
Delft police station confirmed that a murder case was opened.
