body under bedHICKORY, NC — Here’s a story to freak you out a bit the next time you plan on staying in a hotel or, at the very least, relay to friends when they say the “body under the bed” story is just an urban legend. Police in North Carolina are at a Motel 6 after a dead woman was found rotting underneath a bed in one of the rooms.

Hickory police said an employee at the motel discovered the woman’s body underneath the bed on Friday after a guest complained about smelling a foul odor. “I heard some screaming and I don’t know what happened after that,” said Tim Brown, who was outside of the motel when the body was found. “I didn’t know anything was going on, to be honest with you, but wow.”

Police still do not know the identity of the woman, but believe a couple had been staying in the room and are now asking for help locating them. They have released a photograph of a white Previa Toyota van seen leaving the motel Friday morning and are calling the pair “persons of interest.”

Aside from the locating the couple, police hope to learn more about the woman, and how she died, from her autopsy. …
