Dead Woman Molders 6 Weeks Under Motel Bed Before Being Found. Customers Incensed!
A mother of five whose body was found under a motel bed more than six weeks after she vanished was strangled, according to a report released Tuesday by the Shelby County Medical Examiner.
Sony Millbrook, 28, was reported missing by her family on Jan. 27. They last saw her at the Budget Lodge, 1533 E. Brooks, in Room 222.

Despite repeated complaints from customers who stayed in the room about a foul odor, the motel cleaning staff didn't discover Millbrook's body until March 15.
It was entombed in the space under the mattress and box springs in a metal frame that sits square on the floor.

You would think that in this day and age that the first thing they would do when someone complains about a foul odor in a motel room is to check for a dead whore under the bed!

Those poor kids, it'll be a miracle if any of them are able to make something out of their lives.

They need to do an "internal investigation" when the cops taking the missing persons report never went inside the motel room? The place she was last seen?
Yeah. They might have handled that report differently.

As a veteran motel employee, I can tell you that 16 rooms a day at union wage does not leave time for detective work! This whole section of town stunks.

This is a three year old story. Why post it now?

C'mon, how horny must you be to not smell a rotting corpse a foot away from you?

That article was so fucking poorly written that it barely makes any sense.
"I want justice for her, for my mom, for her kids, for all of us," said Linda James, who has taken care of Millbrook's five children, ages 5 months to 14 years old, since she vanished.
"Our lives will never be the same again," James said.
She has gotten the children beds and clothes to last for the school year. James said she can't go back to work since this happened; she works in the hospitality industry at a hotel."
Who is Linda James' mom that she wants justice for? Why can she not go back to work because she works in a hotel? Why does it matter that she bought the kids new beds and clothes? Hit up the Motel 6 for money if you don't want to go back to work and need reimbursement for the kids. I doubt the community at large feels responsible for this.

Didn't something like this end up in an episode of "Law & Order" or "CSI" or some other procedural show?

She was a whore turning tricks in a run down motel that stinks so bad, you can't smell decomposing human flesh, from the every day rotting smell.

They last saw her at the Budget Lodge? Why did they leave her there?

This story has moldered for longer than the woman under the bed, OP. It's three years old.

r10, "my mom" suggested to me that it's also Sony's mom, that Linda is her sister. It makes sense that the kids would go to a close relative like a sister. There's 5 of them and they range in age from a baby to 14. Of course the woman is under a lot of stress all of a sudden having to raise 5 young children. If she wants to stay home with them for an adjustment period, who the hell are you to judge?

It's not like she got trapped behind a bookshelf, People.
This woman was MURDERED!

Jesus H. Christ, the article is so poorly written.

Who is "they?" The "customers," the cleaning staff, the hotel management, or the family? Or none of the above.
Don't newspapers have editors and proof readers anymore?

Do they offer weekly rates?

r16 The the writer should have given a little more info, like saying Sony's sister, Linda James says __. I am not judging that she is staying home. I am saying that this is written incredibly shittily, why say where it is the woman works unless you are trying to imply that she is so traumatized from this that she can't ever go back to a hotel at all because of it. Is this shitty writer a relative of yours? Why do you care?

If the neighbors are incensed, it might explain why they didn't smell the body. Geddit?

No wonder Motel 6 has such low rates!
