A man in Philadelphia is accused of starving his 82-year-old father to death and when his body was found, it weighed 79 pounds. Thomas Hauck called paramedics about his mother being sick and they found the father's body. Hauck told them, Leonard Hauck, had died several days earlier and he didn't know what to do with the body. It was found in the basement of the house. Paramedics also say the mother was malnourished. Hauck faces charges of murder, manslaughter, abuse of a corpse and other crimes in his father's death.
