    A southwest Florida man found a body inside a foreclosed house he purchased at an auction.

    The News-Press of Fort Myers reports Cape Coral resident William Wilson bought the light pink house for $96,000 on Tuesday. When he went to evaluate his purchase on Wednesday, he found a corpse on the master bedroom floor.

    Cape Coral police cordoned off the property and began a death investigation.

    Neighbors told the newspaper that two sisters had lived in the home but no one had seen them for a while. Police told Wilson the most recent piece of mail was from November 2011 and unpaid property taxes went back three years.

    Wilson said the house was a mess inside, and it looked like someone was planning to move.
