"Body Undiscovered For Six Weeks" PART 1

Family speak after body nightmare

A family of a 66-year-old man whose dead body lay undiscovered in his home in Jersey for six weeks say they hope lessons will be learnt from the incident.

David Le Bourgeois was a resident at Victoria Cottage Homes, which provide independent living. His body was too decomposed to discover the cause of his death.

Son Paul and his wife Maria said that while they had not been a close family, they felt the organisations who run the homes could have done more by checking in person and by telephone on David.


  1. Paul and Maria, hope you guys are coping ok, kindest regards....Ian

  2. Hi Ian, many thanks for the post. It has been a tough time for Paul but he is gradually getting there. I will be in touch soon regarding further posting.
