Airbnb Guests Find Decomposing Body In French Rental’s Garden

We’ve heard of Airbnb horror stories before — from nightmare renters who refuse to leave, to guests who find hidden cameras watching them — but this might be one of the worst, and saddest: renters staying at a house near Paris discovered the decomposing body of a woman in the home’s garden.

A group of friends staying at the seven-bedroom house with a swimming pool were paying around $435 per night for their party weekend, in a ritzy town 12 miles southwest of Paris, reports The Associated Press.

“Her body was found at the bottom of the property which opens out into a woods,” a police source said, according to The Guardian.

Foul play is suspected. The listing was removed on Sunday.
