News Of The Day: Dead Body Found During Easter Egg Hunt

Worst. Prize Egg. Ever.
Dead Body Found During Easter Egg Hunt

(WBIR - Knoxville) The hunt for the source of a foul odor ended with the discovery of a decomposing body under the deck of a family's home in west Knoxville.

The body was found by a mother who was having an Easter egg hunt for her four-year-old child in the back yard, according to Knoxville police. Officials said the body had been there for about two weeks.

The woman told police she had smelled a foul odor outside her home on Forest View Road for several days.

She tried to find the source of the smell a couple of times during the week to no avail.

Wednesday night at 7:19 p.m., the mother noticed the smell again during the Easter egg hunt and was finally able to locate the body.

  2. This family must have a very muted sense of smell! Human decomp is STRONG and I would have had to tear the house apart to find that smell. Wow.

    1. Okay, now that's putting it mildly at best. Once there was a dead groundhog stuck in the storm drain across the street from our house, it stunk up the place until Animal Control could be persuaded into removing it.

      I can't imagine how much worse a dead human body that's almost 10 times as big as a groundhog would have to stink, especially if it's right under your house and not across the street.
