Alcabre Man

In Alcabre, Spain, a 51-year-old man was found dead in 2016, after having been crushed by garbage in his home. 

He was a compulsive hoarder. 

A friend contacted police after the man hadn’t been heard from for a few days. 

His home was filled with piles of trash. 

Some of these piles were so high that one collapsed and crushed the man against a door. 

The amount of garbage was so great that authorities had difficulty entering the home to retrieve the body.
