Neighbors and friends of Marvin Schur want answers as to how this could happen.

Here you go:

Bay City Electric Light and Power sent Schur a shutoff notice through the mail a few weeks ago.

Then crews placed a shutoff notice on his front door. A few days later, Schur was found by neighbors.

Bay City Electric Light and Power, which is owned by the city, said a limiter was placed on Schur's electrical line.

The device limits the power that reaches a home, and it blows out like a fuse if power consumption rises past a set level.

The manager of Bay City said the limiter was tripped sometime between the time of installation and the discovery of the man's body.

It's not like the power company goes through each individual's circumstances and says "Oh, looks like this guy is a 93 year old WWII vet, we should knock on his door and make sure he's ok."

It's more like "Account #43545489 is past due, we will follow company policy that has been in place for a very long time." They don't have some crack team of high paid experts trying to figure out why a certain person is not paying his bill.
