We hope you enjoyed yesterday’s Plot Bunnies featuring Brain. This is the beginning of a new project that Dave Mornix and I have planned. Each day will post something funny, weird or strange … but with some fact behind it. You can then run with it and use it for your own inspirational purposes or just read it and do nothing the choice is yours.
Everyone loves a vacation … who doesn’t like hanging out at the pool, ordering room service and getting your bed turned down. Some times truth is stranger than fiction. Where does the line in the sand get drawn? Ask Aaron Silver, who when he dropped the TV remote founds something else among the dust bunnies. It reminded me of the The Enigmatic Monster Project. Sometimes you forget a book, a toy, a favorite pair of jeans … but a … what?
In the News, on July 24, 2014:
Stunning news this morning out of New Jersey, as reports of police discovering the body of a young woman under a motel bed have been confirmed. The owners of the motel asked that their name and location be omitted from news reports to protect their business.
The body, which has yet to be identified, was found by a person staying in the room.
“I dropped the television remote, and when I went to check under the bed I found her. It was like something out of a scary movie,” said Aaron Silver, the man staying in the room.
According to initial reports by the medical examiner on-scene, it appears as though the body lay undisturbed in the room for about 5 years. There was a normal amount of rot and decay on the body to suggest that it had not been moved or touched over the course of that time.
The motel has not made a comment about the issue but have told police that they are constantly cleaning their rooms and have no idea how this could have slipped beneath the cracks.
“I clean that room every day. I noticed a smell several times, and told my manager,” said Anita Rodriguez, a housekeeper at the motel. “He told me to just use extra Febreeze in the room and it would go away eventually. I always hated cleaning that room.”
Motel representatives say that all their rooms are cleaned daily, but that it is not the policy of the company to make their housekeepers check under the beds.
“They do a heavy clean of the rooms to sanitize for guests, but when it comes to under the beds, they just run the vacuum around the edges. Who really looks under the bed, anyway? No reason to waste anyone’s time,” said Charles Dyson, a representative of the motel chain.
“It’s the most bizarre thing I’ve ever seen,” said police chief Joe Goldsmith. “I’ve seen a lot of strange things in my time on the force, but to think about all the people who’ve stayed in this room, with a dead body beneath them, and they didn’t know about it? It gives me the heebie-jeebies.”
Urban Legends/Myths and stories:
- Dead body found stuffed inside a mattress.
- Dead body stuffed under a mattress.
- Dead body parts looking like decorations (yeah that wouldn’t float for me).
- Body found in the tube with stolen kidney (or other body part)
One of our favorite movies is Psycho (the shower scene in the Bates Motel)
Food for thought:
Story ideas …
Haunted room in hotel/motel due to dead body under the bed or in the mattress or maybe buried in the wall.
Maybe something or someone buried under the hotel?
Something or someone found in the back of a hotel.
A hotel that offers other amenities, could be a magical hotel/motel.
