A metaphor is a literary device in which an author makes an implicit comparison between two unrelated things that share a common characteristic. In this example, the author compares a dead person and a stone. Most likely, the comparison refers to the immobility and the lifelessness that both present.

Pretty sure its a simile. It cant be personification because it says "he" which refers to a living and breathing human. I don't think it would be a hyperbole because hyperboles are an over exaggerated description. It doesn't use like or as, so i would say in this case simile.
