The victim, Eric Dwayne Walden, 42, of Houston, showed no visible signs of trauma and was found in a state of decomposition.

Mr. Walden was found inside of his apartment by housekeeping staff after they noticed a foul smell coming from his apartment and a large number of flies inside the windows. Believing Walden had moved out and left food inside, the housekeeper went in the apartment to clean and found him lying in the hallway next to the downstairs bathroom.
There were no signs of forced entry, a struggle, nor were there any notes left by Walden.
It is believed Walden had a prior medical condition and the Harris County Medical Examiner will perform an autopsy to determine the cause of death.
