Weird news - Rented house, found body in garden

Airbnb is a major player in the tourism business, creating a major new business in essentially the past few years and emerging as a threat to established hotel chains. After all, many people like to have an experience that is different from traditional hotels; and being able to look at homes of people and stay in them is a very different experience. Further, staying in a home, many of them located at choice locations, and with the option of being able to cook for your own needs rather than having to eat hotel fare or keep on looking for restaurants to ear sounds like a much better deal.
One problem with Airbnb is that you are totally dependent on the host, the good or bad experience comes from the host and Airbnb has only limited control over the experience on the ground. But nothing can compare to the experience that these people had. They went to a superb place in order to stay, have a nice family vacation, and it sounds like a lovely place with a nice garden. And what was present in the garden ? A decomposing body of a woman, having been dead for around a month; sounds like a horror story (link to article):
An Airbnb listing for a house in the French town of Palaiseau, near Paris, was quickly taken down after renters reportedly made a grim discovery in the garden: a corpse. A group of young friends had rented the home in the Paris suburb to celebrate a birthday. They said they found the body facedown in the garden and covered by branches. The corpse was "hunched in a dug-out area, her head against the ground, covered in branches and surrounded by wood stumps," police told Agence France Presse. Authorities have not identified the deceased woman, and an autopsy will be performed on Monday. The death is being investigated as a murder. French newspaper Le Parisien reported that the homeowner, identified only as "Emmanuel L.," was vacationing with his wife and five children when the renters phoned him on Saturday, saying they had discovered the body earlier that day. He told the newspaper in French that he was "dumbfounded" by the news.
