His name was Dan Tuckfield, and though the police say that their investigation "did not find that there was anything suspicious about the way the man died," he did show "signs of decomposition" by the time they found him, which was almost immediately, so the neighbors are suspicious. Obviously this is very sad, but if there's any consolation to be had, it's the comfort we can take in the fact that Tuckfield was the happiest possible conditions when he passed: he was in a Jacuzzi and he was naked. It doesn't get much better than that (the only way it could is if he was literally surrounded by bacon, not just in spirit, or if his tongue constantly regenerating strip of bacon).

Tuckfield's body was found at the Lyford Cay home of billionaire financier Louis Bacon around 10 a.m. on Sunday, May 2, according to reports obtained by The Guardian. Tuckfield's death certificate listed his time of death as 9:30 a.m. on May 2. However, the death certificate said the body, which police reportedly discovered a short while later, already showed "signs of decomposition." Tuckfield's cause of death was listed as "coronary artery disease" and the certificate listed no antecedent causes.

On Wednesday police clarified that Tuckfield was actually found naked in the jacuzzi at Point House, not the pool. It is understood that no one else was at the home when his body was discovered. Bacon was reportedly not in the country at the time.
