Man found dead in bathtub had been there since May

LAKE WORTH, Fla. — Palm Beach County authorities say a man’s body discovered in a bathtub had been there since at least May.

Sheriff’s spokesman Eric Davis told the Palm Beach Post Wednesday the identification of the man will not be official until the medical examiner’s office confirms it.

Davis also said deputies found the victim’s wife inside the home when they executed a search warrant Monday. Now detectives want to know why she never reported the death.

Davis says investigators found “nothing unusual” about the death and are waiting for results from the medical examiner’s office. He added that no arrests have been made and no charges are pending so far.
