MOSCOW, Feb. 3 (UPI) -- Moscow police say they are investigating the death of a man whose mummified body was found at an apartment 10 years after he died.

The man's identity was not released, but he was born in 1930, the RIA Novosti news agency reported.

Last month, police in southeast Moscow found the body of a woman five years after her death.

In September 2009 the mummified body of a newborn baby was found wrapped in newspapers nearly 40-years-old under the floorboards of an apartment in Yekaterinburg.
