Woman finds father dead in home full of bees

Cause of death not yet determined

MIAMI - A woman found her father dead inside his home with thousands of bees living in the walls.

The man's daughter found him in the upstairs bedroom of his home at 129 Northwest 15th Avenue in Miami on Saturday.

The man was renovating the home, which neighbors said had been in the family for decades, for his daughter.

Firefighters said the home was full of bees.

They added that the cause of death has not been determined.

"We're not sure if he fell, had a medical condition or if it was bee stings," said Miami Fire Rescue Lt. Ignatius Carroll.

Willie Sklaroff, who runs a bee eradication company, said at least 60,000 bees were living in the walls of the home.

He plans to return to the home in the coming days to remove the bees.
