The headless body of a missing San Francisco man is believed to have been found in an aquarium in his home, multiple outlets reported on Tuesday.
At a press conference, police said that the remains found on 65-year-old Brian Egg house were so badly decomposed that they could not immediately be identified.
A neighbor told the San Francisco Chronicle that he had not seen the Egg since June, and became suspicious when two strange men started with the answer of Egg the door. The neighbor, Scott Free, said he asked the police to perform a welfare check on the Egg house. The paper reported that the men opened the door, and told officials that Egg was gone on vacation.
The body was found in his home on 228 Clara Street in San Francisco.

“He was a kind of pony” Free told the Chronicle of his neighbor. “He had no job and lived on the margins. He was quite eccentric. A vacation seemed very unlikely.”
About two weeks ago, the Chronicle and KNTV reported that neighbors called 911 after seeing a suspicious person with a own crime scene clean up truck outside the Egg house. Days later, officers returned with a search warrant and cadaver dogs, and did the gruesome discovery.
The Chronicle reported that Ei had lived in the house on Clara Street in San Francisco’s South of Market district since the 1970s. The paper reported that he had worked as a bartender in a gay bar in the 1980s, but had not had steady work in recent years.
The police said they had identified two persons of interest in the case. The Chronicle reported that the 39-year-old Lance Silva was arrested Aug. 16 on suspicion of fraud, theft from an elder, grand theft auto, and motor vehicle theft in connection with the case.
No murder charges have been filed in the case.
