POITIERS, France, Aug 27 (AFP) - A man's skeleton was found Friday in his flat in central western France stretched out in bed in front of television nearly two years after he died.  

No one had missed the 57-year-old from Chatellerault since November 2002 when he is believed to have died.  

Bailiffs discovered the skeleton dressed in a tracksuit during a visit to the fourth floor apartment after being called for non-payment of rent.  

The man who lived alone was unemployed. Police say he died of natural causes.
