Missing Navy veteran, 51, is found dead on his kitchen floor and officials say his body may have laid there undiscovered for THREE YEARS

Navy veteran was dead for THREE YEARS before body was found on his kitchen floor

  • The body of Ronald Wayne White was found inside his Dallas apartment complex last week
  • Medical examiners say White likely died in 2016 and that his remains went undiscovered for three years
  • White's distraught mother says she tried to have police track down his whereabouts with no success  
  • The Navy vet was single, having divorced years ago 
  • His body was only found after management at the apartment complex noticed he had not been using water 

A Navy veteran lay dead on his kitchen floor for three years before his remains were discovered by police, according to a medical examiner who studied the man's remains.  

The body of Ronald Wayne White was found inside his Dallas apartment last week after management at the DeSoto Town Center Complex noticed that he had not been using water. They subsequently alerted police who went on to make the grisly discovery. 

'What I can tell you is it is very clear when officers entered [White's apartment]  that he had been there for a while,' a detective with the DeSoto Police Department told WFAA on Thursday. 

White's rent was automatically withdrawn every month from his bank account and payments continued to go through to the landlord.

Investigators now believe he passed away back in 2016 at the age of 51. They do not suspect foul play.

Police discovered medications inside his apartment dated to that year, and 2016 was also the same year that White last contacted his mother. 

His distraught mother Doris Stevens, who lives in New York state, told WFAA that she used to speak to her son at least twice a month before his phone calls stopped coming. 

'He would call me from Egypt. He would call me from the Philippines. He would call me right from Dallas,' she explained. 

Stevens says she asked multiple police departments to help track down her son, but they could not pursue a missing persons case as White was known to travel frequently for work.

According to WFAA, officers may have called to a house previously listed as being rented by White. However they found nothing to tie him to the residence. 

Elderly Stevens says she did not have enough money to hire a private investigator to help track the whereabouts of her son.   

'All them days, holidays, I just suffered. Because nobody wanted to help find him,' Stevens stated. 

White reportedly divorced around 20 years ago, and he had adult children. They say they were unaware that he was residing at the DeSoto address.   

In addition to his medications from 2016, police also discovered White's pick-up truck in the garage covered in dust. 

Tests are now being performed to see whether a cause of death can be determined.

So sad an ending, this is why we should allow our parents if living or someone know our place we are residing at all times cause you never know what will happen or when death will come knocking that someone needs to check on you. For whatever reason he did not want anyone to know where he resides when traveling will never be known. RIP Just can't understand how this poor Navy vet died in such a manner. Condolences to his mother and children.

@ Maggie, his mother did know he was living there, if she knew they would have found him years ago. But something is fishy, his body is decomposed, no one smell death? The rotting body and no one smell it. Smh

I Don't Believe He Laid There 3 Years And Nobody Notice What About A foul Odor Or Something It's Not Like  He Lived In A  Isolated Area  Where No Other People Lived And You Gonna Tell Me The Only Way Anyone Notice Was Because He Wasn't Using Water .Why Didn't  His Mother Going There To Check Sound Mighty Fishy To Me. Because If It Was Me And I Talked To My Son No Matter Where He Went Then The All Of A Sudden I Didn't Hear From Him I Would Have Had The Management Let Me In To Check For Him.Is He The Only One Who Lived In The Complex  ? Common Sense Tell Me Something Else Happen ,,,May He Rest In Peace
