Meriden police have identified a man found dead and decomposing in an apartment on East Main Street earlier this month.
Police said 73-year old Thomas Wilderman was found dead in an apartment at 657 East Main Street on Nov. 2. His body was discovered when neighbors began to smell a foul odor seeping through the apartment door and reported it to police.
Wilderman lived in the building, police confirmed. His car was found on Clark Street in Hartford later the same week.
Police are investigating the death as a homicide.
Meriden police said no other new information was available Wednesday, but that detectives were pleased with the progress of the investigation.
