Yonkers man dies after being found in house of horrors
Police say a Yonkers man died after being removed from what they describe as a house of horrors.
According to authorities, paramedics were called to 63-year-old Michael Link?s house by his brother Adam. They say Michael Link complained of shortness of breath. Paramedics found Link lying on a stack of debris in his own feces and say he had been in that position for at least a week. Responding firefighters say maggots had eaten through Link?s flesh. Link was taken to the hospital where he later died.
Police searched the home the next day wearing hazmat suits. Link?s brother is said to be undergoing psychiatric treatment. The county health department is investigating the matter.
