Airbnb Renters Find Decomposing Corpse in Garden

When a group of friends in France got together to have a party, they decided to rent a house to make the experience even more enjoyable. They consulted Airbnb and found the nice looking, three-story home in Palaiseau, pictured at left. Just a ten minute drive south of Paris, with seven bedrooms, a swimming pool, and backing up to a wooded area, it seemed ideal.

Yet when it came time to party, the renters were horrified to find a woman's badly decomposed body half buried in the garden area near the woods. In its shallow grave, the body was in a near fetal position, face down and covered with logs and branches. The local prosecutor's office said that homicide is suspected. 

The friends who rented the place called off their party on Saturday and were questioned by the police the following day.
