Police in the United States have discovered the body of a missing mother under a hotel bed, which had been rented out five time since she disappeared six weeks earlier.
Police say the body was discovered on Monday after bad odour was reported in the room.
“The room had been rented approximately five times and cleaned by the hotel staff numerous times,” police said.
The bed’s mattress and box spring are encased by a metal frame which sits directly on the floor.
Police did not specify exactly where in the bed the body was found.
Sony Millbrook was reported missing on January 27 after she failed to pick her children up from school.
Her family told police they had checked the hotel where she had been living and Ms Millbrook was not there.
A hotel employee told police Ms Millbrook had last been seen in the hotel while she had been locked out of the room for failing to pay, and her belongings were still inside the apartment.
The case was transferred from missing persons to the homicide department a week later and detectives interviewed two clerks and a security guard at the hotel.
Police say they subsequently arrested Ms Millbrook’s boyfriend on a gun violation and he remains a person of interest in the case.
