Partying Airbnb Renters Make Ghastly Discovery

A group of friends who rented an Airbnb in France for a weekend party made a gruesome discovery in the property's backyard: a woman's decomposing body.
Police said the corpse was "hunched in a dug-out area, her head against the ground, covered in branches and surrounded by wood stumps."
It was found Saturday in an "extremely steep and wooded area" at the base of the property where the garden met the woods, at a house in the town of Paleaiseau in the suburbs of Paris.
Agence-France Presse reported:
She was dressed, but was not wearing shoes and had a “ring with a large stone” on her finger. No identifying documents were found with the body.
The body’s advanced state of decomposition meant it was not possible to determine cause of death, and an autopsy will be carried out.
The renters were being questioned by police on Sunday.
Foul play is suspected.
