    NJ - Man dead in home for a year before body found

    Reclusive Wayne man had been dead in his home for a year
    Donald Domsky was a fixture at the small diner in Wayne where patrons knew him as a trivia wiz, though they didn't know his last name. Neighbors often offered the septuagenarian lifts on his miles-long ambles through town, but he never accepted.

    He lived alone in a small gray-blue ranch house with a rusted pickup in the driveway. Paint peeled from the window frames and gutters dangled from the roof. The lawn was leaf-covered and an old water heater sat abandoned near the driveway.

    Always a bit unkempt, the house had fallen into serious disrepair over the course of a year. That's about how long it took for neighbors and police to learn that he was dead inside.

    Through a series of small oversights and mistaken assumptions, it wasn't until last week that police found his body.
