    BOYNTON BEACH, Fla. -- Patrick Henderson, a 29-year-old recently arrested three times in one week for huffing dust cleaner in the parking lot of department stores, has died.

    Authorities say his decomposing body was found Saturday, lying face-down in the backseat of a Ford Explorer in the parking lot of a T.J. Maxx in Boynton Beach. Investigators later found several empty aerosol canisters in the Explorer.

    It is unknown how long Henderson's body had been in the parking lot, where an off-duty Fort Lauderdale Police officer had been walking around 3 p.m. Saturday, when she suddenly encountered a terrible stench.

    "[She] smelled the distinct odor of human body decomposition," said Boynton Beach Police spokeswoman Stephanie Slater.

    The off-duty officer followed the odor to a maroon 2002 Ford Explorer parked a few steps away. She looked through the Explorer's windows and saw a person lying face-down against the backseat door.

    Authorities pronounced Henderson dead a short time later.

    "There were several cans of aerosol dust cleaner throughout the car," Slater said.

    The discovery of the 29-year-old Delray Beach man's body came less than two weeks after he made headlines for landing in the Palm Beach County Jail three times in less than a week.

    Henderson's troubles began Nov. 24, in the parking lot of a Staples office supply store in Delray Beach. There, police say officers found him huffing Dust Destroyer, a popular aerosol office cleaner.

    Police immediately charged Henderson with huffing dangerous chemicals, and booked him into the Palm Beach County Jail. About two hours later, he posted bond and went on his way.

    Less than 24 hours later, police say, Henderson walked into a Target, bought four more cans of dust remover and got high again.

    But Henderson, 29, caught the attention of several people in the parking lot. Witnesses called Boynton Beach police and reported a man sitting in a maroon Ford Explorer, huffing chemicals out of what looked like a can of whipped cream.

    An officer soon found a groggy and lethargic Henderson sitting in the car with a can of 3M Dust Remover in his lap.

    Henderson landed in jail again. He stayed behind bars for three days, until deputies released him Wednesday.

    Less than 24 hours later, on Nov. 29, a Boynton Beach police officer rolled past a maroon Ford Explorer in the 1600 block of Renaissance Commons Boulevard. There was Henderson again. He was, according to police, "convulsing."

    The officer walked toward the car and witnessed Henderson "bring a white canister to his mouth/nose area," an arrest report says.

    "It appeared as though Henderson was doing what is known as 'huffing,' " an officer wrote in the report.

    Police arrested Henderson and searched the car, where officers say they found several 10-ounce cans of Office Depot cleaning duster.

    "One was found to be cold," the report says, "due to it being just used, and one was empty on the front passenger seat."

    Officers then booked Henderson into jail. He posted bond four hours later.

    This is very tragic, this man clearly had a very serious problem and nobody stepped in to help him, wouldn't you think after the 3rd time being arrested for the same offence in the same week they would offer him some sort of help? I mean seriously the guy made headlines on the news and no medical facility or government aid intervened, I understand its nobody's responsibility but 3 times in one week should be enough to raise some concern.

    I agree, it's so sad. I wish someone would have stepped in to help him. Duster is dangerous and lethal, it really messes people up, a lot of times to the point where they can't stop unless someone intervenes. :(

    I don't understand why he wasn't put into a mental facility after the 3rd arrest in a parking lot of an office store.

    I actually had a coworker who was caught huffing on break at work, they had a L.P. guy watch him the next day. I'll be damned if he wasn't caught doing the same shit the next shift. He was huffing something odd the first day and duster the next.. I think they said it was some sort of paint the first day.

    Is it really that addictive?

    Patrick Henderson: Delray Beach man arrested twice in 24 hours for huffing chemicals, police say


    By: Ed Komenda, Sun Sentinel Arrest records suggest Patrick Henderson couldn't get enough.

    Less than 24 hours after officers arrested the 29-year-old man and charged him with huffing chemicals in Delray Beach, police say he walked into a Target, bought four more cans of dust remover and proceeded to get high again in Boynton Beach.

    Henderson, of Delray, later caught the attention of a concerned passer-by, who called in a report that led to his second arrest in half as many days.

    According to a Boynton Beach police report, an anonymous caller told police he saw a man sitting in a maroon Ford Explorer Sunday morning, huffing chemicals out of what looked like a can of whipped cream.

    When police rolled up, an officer soon found the man, later identified as Henderson, sitting in the car with a

    The officer then asked Henderson to get out of the Explorer. As Henderson got out of the car, he put the can of 3M Dust Remover on the passenger seat.

    Looking through the car window, the officer realized there were more chemicals in the car.

    Officers then noticed a large, brown paper bag labeled with numbers sitting in the back seat. Officers knew immediately that Henderson had just left jail. The numbered bag is used when booking prisoners in and out of the Palm Beach County Jail.

    "Henderson stated that he relapsed yesterday over personal issues after being sober for seven months,"

    Officers then booked Henderson in the Palm Beach County Jail in lieu of $250 bond.

    Cops: 'Huffer' busted three times in one week

    December 2, 2012 | By Barbara Hijek,FloriDUH

    Patrick Henderson has been caught huffing three times last week, reports the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.

    Once he was reportedly caught huffing "Dust Destroyer" in the parking lot of a Staples office supply store in Delray Beach.

    Less than 24 hours later, cops received a report of a man huffing in a target parking lot, the report stated.

    Yep, it was a groggy Henderson, sitting in a car with a can of 3M Dust Remover in his lap.

    The third time a Boynton Beach cop found an allegedly "convulsing" Henderson in his car -- along with several cans of Office Depot cleaning duster.

    Is this some sort of record?

    Apparently not.

    Some folks just can't huff enough.
