A body is found under a bed in a motel room. This is another prompt inspired by a fake news site, this time Empire News. My favorite “quote” from the “article”:

“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.”
