WICHITA, Kan. — Police are trying to identify a man who was found dead in an apartment after his face was partially eaten by a dog.

The man’s body was found around 5:30 p.m. Saturday after neighbors grew concerned they hadn’t seen the tenant in almost a week, the Wichita Eagle reported.

The dog inside the apartment was barking and behaving restlessly, police said.

“The dog had been feeding on the man’s body,” Wichita police Lt. Doug Nolte said, including eating his face.

The body had also begun to decompose, the paper said.

The dog is currently being held in animal control.
