Woman Discovers Dead Body During 4-Year-Old's Easter Egg Hunt

On Wednesday, a woman hosting an Easter egg hunt party for her four-year-old son discovered a dead body under her deck.

For about a week, Tara Hanouskova had noticed a strong, rotten odor coming from her backyard in Knoxville, Tenn. With the help of her landscaper, she searched for the smell's source but found nothing.

Then, during her tot's Easter egg hunt on Wednesday, Hanouskova followed the odor to her deck, beneath which she found a decomposed body.

"I really don't even know how he got there," Hanouskova told the Knoxville News Sentinel.

Police say the body, which so badly decomposed it still hasn't been identified, had been there for at least two weeks. Based on an autopsy, foul play isn't suspected.

Happy Easter everyone!
