OK, I am officially squicked by this news: a body was found under a motel room bed.
Stunning news this morning out of New Jersey, as reports of police discovering the body of a young woman under a motel bed have been confirmed. The owners of the motel asked that their name and location be omitted from news reports to protect their business.
I’m sure they don’t want their name spread around: the body was in an advanced state of decay and the police estimated it had been lying there for five years. Customers and housekeepers complained about the smell frequently, but “it is not the policy of the company to make their housekeepers check under the beds”.
“Funny thing is, the records also show literally almost 1,000 complaints from people who stayed in the room over the years. Everything from a bad smell to an ‘eerie feeling.’ Several people even asked to switch rooms in the middle of the night,” said Goldsmith. “The motel really should have checked out that room a little more closely.”
The police are doing a disservice to the community by not revealing the name of the motel chain that has such awful maintenance practices.
Never mind. The story is from a so-called satirical site — I don’t understand how it was supposed to be funny, but OK, taste varies.
