(Huffington Post) A man who recently purchased an apartment in France experienced quite the shock when he opened the door of his new abode and found the previous tenant’s body inside.

According to Le Parisien, a man was recently found dead in a Bussy-Saint-Georges flat eight years after an apparent suicide. On Wednesday, police identified the body as Thomas Ngin, a Cambodian man who worked as a security guard before his death in 2005.

Ngin, who would have turned 50 this year, is believed to have hanged himself after he was let go from his job. Since Ngin had previously cut ties with this family, there was no one to report him missing, Radio France Internationale reports.
