HILLSDALE — Authorities do not suspect foul play in the death of a man whose body was found in the basement of a local grocery store where he apparently had been living.
Hillsdale police identified the man as Richard Dean, 53. They said he died of natural causes.
The body was found inside the Broad Street Market on North Broad Street Wednesday after an acquaintance of Mr. Dean's reported to police that he hadn't seen Mr. Dean in some time.
Authorities believe Mr. Dean could have been dead for several months. His dog was found dead next to him.
