Coroner: Indiana Man Was Dead In Home For More Than 9 Months

Authorities in Lafayette, Indiana say a man found dead in his home in May had been decomposing there for more than nine months. 

What is shocking to neighbors of the Lafayette veteran is the man's wife had acted like nothing was wrong. 

The Tippecanoe County coroner says 88-year-old Francis Gavan Junior died July 15th or earlier. 

Gavan's wife, Ila Solomon, was the man's live-in caretaker and they married two years ago. 

Solomon claims her husband didn't die until April 28th.
