WATCH: Son of elderly woman whose decomposing body was found in CDN may have mental issues: police

Police are questioning the son of an 85-year old woman whose decomposing body was found in Cote-des-Nieges.

Her body, in an advanced state of decomposition, was found Sunday afternoon in an apartment on Barclay near Decelles.

"Seems that we might face a mental issue problem at this moment. The 45-year old man was transported to the hospital he's going under evaluation", said police spokesman Raphael Bergeron to CTV.

Authorities said they believe there's no foul play involved. 

The building's janitor was doing emergency repair work inside the building and said he detected a very strong odour when he knocked on the door of the apartment.

The tenant responded, but the janitor became suspicious of the smell and called police.
