Donald Smith's body was found on July 22, 2016 in his home at 140 block of West Milton Avenue in Hazel Park. His wife lived among his dead body, while it is uncertain whether or not she knew he was dead due to her questionable mental condition.
When the women went to the city hall seeking help with paying bills, an employee notified authorities due to her seeming unhealthy. Her home was investigated and was deemed inhabitable. That was when Donald Smith's body was discovered.
Found under a pile of garbage.
