The man slipped into a coma and died in his home.

The police discovered his body when they visited the home due to the mortgage falling behind and wanted to inquire about it. 

The family started packing their belongings but it was when the woman opened the door to her bedroom a foul smell got to the attention of the officer. His feet had protruded from the blankets he was sleeping in, wrapped in duct tape. 

The family had started praying for his resurrection and had accepted his death.
