PORT RICHEY, Fla. - The Pasco County Sheriff's Office is investigating after a "heavily decomposed" body was found in the backyard of a home. Neighbors reported smelling a foul odor for days before deputies arrived Saturday night.

A death investigation is now underway to determine the identity of an adult female. Her body was found in the backyard of a home near Richwood Lane and Embassy Boulevard.

"I was in shock because I was just wondering how they didn't notice," neighbor Taish Marie Batista said.

Neighbors told FOX 13 they could smell a foul odor in the air for days. Some called deputies earlier in the week but said authorities didn't show up until late Saturday.

"I remember it smelt so bad. I couldn't remember exactly how it smelt, but it just smelt like straight death," Noah Paul said.
