Defining an Unattended Death
An unattended death is exactly what it sounds like, a death without anybody witnessing or reporting it.

How Unattended Deaths Are Handled?
Unattended deaths are hard scenarios to handle. Given most unattended deaths are reported after the body has started decomposing. If the person is found on their home, the responsibility of cleaning up the scene lies on the relatives, creating a difficult scenario for any family.
