TENANTS who reported stains on their walls and a “horrible smell” were shocked to find that it was BLOOD seeping into their apartment from their upstairs neighbor who had been dead for a week.
AJ McCrady and Evin Schultz noticed a dark substance leak down the walls of their apartment last week.
The pair, based in Minneapolis, Minnesota, had noticed a foul smell in their home last week and had reported it to the building’s maintenance team.
But last Wednesday they spotted the dark substance dripping from the ceiling in their flat.
This prompted the tenants to call the maintenance team to check out what was happening in the apartment above.
The team then inspected the flat, where they made the grim discovery, uncovering the decomposing body of a man.
He had reportedly died in his sleep.
AJ posted the entire story to his Twitter page on February 5 explaining what had happened, which has since gone viral.
He wrote: “My apartment has smelt horrible recently and I just found out the guy living above me has been dead for over a week.
“And before you ask, his body was just discovered after his blood leaked down the ceiling into our apartment this morning.”
He later added: “All I really know of the situation is the man upstairs died in his sleep.
“His body decomposed and somehow managed to seep into our apartment.
“We’ve head leaking in our bathroom so when we saw this we called maintenance immediately.”
He added: “Maintenance stopped by and had no idea what the hell it could be.
“He wiped off a little on the wall to examine it and still really couldn’t determine anything.
“He went upstairs into the apartment above to see if they had the same problem and that’s when the body got discovered.”
His post has been retweeted more than 190,000 times.
Minneapolis police spokesperson John Elder told local media that a body was discovered in the apartment.
Officers found nothing suspicious when they investigated the scene.
