Two men answering an ad on Craigslist for a room for rent in the 15800 block of SE Fifth Place in Bellevue instead found the body of a man who had been dead for two or more days.
Apparently when the two men showed up at the door of the house a crying four-year-old boy answered and told them that he couldn't wake his dad. The men took the boy to a neighbor's house, then went back to the advertised house and discovered the dead man inside--he was young, only in his thirties.
Police have ruled out any foul play in the man's death.
The boy, meanwhile, apparently was without anyone else to care for him and was placed in foster care.
UPDATE: Earlier reports had said that the child was put into foster care. That appears to be false. The boy is apparently now being cared for by his grandparents.
