Surprisingly, James, his own son was his caretaker. Upon arrival, James initially refused to let the police inside but he later opened the door after they threatened to force their way in. Robert’s was found on the floor with his body already decomposing and insects were feeding on him.
Police decided to check on Robert after his grandchildren asked them to please do so. Robert died a few days before the arrival of the police. FOX 61 reported that Robert was a veteran who was bedridden and dependent on his son for daily care. James admitted he had an argument with his father and left him alone in his bed for three days without giving him any food or water or changing him.
