Springfield police have identified a man that was found dead in his apartment over the weekend.
Craig Sheridan, 61, was found on the floor of his home at 5 Temple St. Saturday morning. Neighbors alerted police of a strange odor coming from the apartment, according to Springfield police Sgt. John Delaney.
Sheridan had not been seen in a week, and investigators say he had been dead for quite some time before he was found. A homicide unit was called to the scene to investigate.
Detectives continue to interview people Sheridan knew in hopes of determining what happened.
The medical examiner conducted an autopsy Monday morning to determine cause of death.
