PHILADELPHIA — Authorities say a Philadelphia man has been charged in the starvation death of his 82-year-old father whose body weighed 79 pounds.
Prosecutors say 57-year-old Thomas Hauck was arrested Thursday and is charged with third-degree murder, involuntary manslaughter, abuse of a corpse and other counts in connection with his father’s death last year.
Paramedics responding to a call about Hauck’s mother found the body of 82-year-old Leonard Hauck in the basement of the north Philadelphia home on Dec. 26. Authorities say Thomas Hauck told the paramedics his father had died several days earlier and that he didn’t know what to do with the body. Authorities say Hauck’s mother was also malnourished.
It was not immediately clear if Hauck had obtained an attorney.
