‘Hoarder’ Found Dead Among Debris

INGRAM, Pa. (AP) – A 90-year-old Pittsburgh man considered a “hoarder’’ by his neighbors has been found dead amid debris in a home so cluttered that emergency crews were unable to enter some of the rooms.

Foul play is not suspected, but the Allegheny County medical examiner’s office has scheduled an autopsy Thursday on the body of Stanley Bialowas (BIL’-ohwis) Jr.

His body was found Wednesday in his home in Ingram. Ingram Volunteer Fire Chief Dave Damp says it took crews more than four hours to locate the body after a neighbor told authorities the man hadn’t been seen for several days.
