Philadelphia John Doe was an older man whose decomposing body was discovered in Pennsylvania.
In the process of conducting a welfare check, police discovered the decedent's body hanging from a wooden beam in the rented room where he stayed. Nobody else who lived on the property, including the landlord or any other tenants, knew his name.
The decedent had apparently been allowed to live on the property by the person who had officially been renting it from the landlord. The renter had evidently left the property a while before the decedent died, but the decedent had stayed behind.
