Family of dead man left alone for four years will not be prosecuted

Two brothers and sisters whose other brother lay dead in their home in a Friesland village for four years, will not face prosecution, the public prosecution department said on Friday.

Research has failed to show when and how the man died, Nos news said.
The man had told his siblings he wanted to be left alone in 2006 and no-one disturbed him until last year when renovation work was about to be carried out on their home.
