Man tries to mask death of renter with bleach

William Hendrix Jr., 55, didn't want his girlfriend to know he had a renter at her home near DeLand, OrlandoSentinel.com reports.

Apparently, it was easy to keep secret from her - until the renter died. Then it became a problem. When Hendrix found the body, he mowed the lawn while mulling his next step. Then he went back and poured bleach over the body to mask the smell of decomposition.

When the girlfriend discovered the situation, she called authorities, who arrested Hendrix but don't suspect foul play in the death.
