A man found dead on the balcony of an apartment last Wednesday was a homeless man familiar to authorities, police said this week.

Adam Daywood, 35, was found dead on a balcony of an apartment at Washington Court, just off Broadway at Sixth Street, in Council Bluffs.

Residents called police just after 7 p.m. June 21, reporting that a man had been sleeping on their deck all day, said Sgt. Dale Schmitz of the Council Bluffs Police Department. The tenant told police the man was there at 11 a.m., and that when the resident returned home hours later, the man was still there and unresponsive, Schmitz said.

Daywood had multiple shoplifting and trespassing arrests on his record, Schmitz said.
