A group of buddies on a weekend getaway in France got more than they asked for when they discovered a woman’s decomposing body in a garden on the property.
Police told AFP that the body was found “hunched in a dug-out area, her head against the ground, covered in branches and surrounded by wood stumps.” Police suspect foul play, though no identifying materials were found with the deceased. The renters were questioned over the weekend.
Airbnb’s website does not currently have any policy regarding corpses found on properties being rented out. An Airbnb spokesperson said, “We have offered our assistance to the police and will help them with their investigation in any way we can. In addition, we reached out to the host and guests and will provide all necessary support. Over 80 million people have travelled on Airbnb and problems for hosts and guests are extremely rare.”
