BANKNOTES HELP NARROW DATE OF MAN'S DEATH

According to an October 4 Reuters report, "Austrian authorities
have discovered the body of a man who apparently died at home
in bed five years ago, a Vienna newspaper reported on Wednesday.

The corpse of Franz Riedl, thought to have been in his late 80s
when he died, went undetected for so long because his rent had
been paid by automatic order from the bank account into which
he received his pension, the daily Kurier said.

Police said they were not certain as to exactly when the man had
died, but that they had found only schilling notes in the apartment
-- the currency used by Austria before the introduction of the
euro on January 1, 2002."
