Woman’s body found inside a motel bed frame

The body of a Memphis mother of five was discovered stuffed inside a hotel bed frame, according to local Memphis news services.

Sony Millbrook, 28, was first reported missing in late January. News reports say Millbrook was staying at the Budget Lodge hotel and was last seen on Jan. 27. A missing persons case was opened a few days after her disappearance, and family members had later come to clean her belongings from the motel.

The case ended abruptly today (March 17) when Millbrook’s body was inside the bed frame in the room she was occupying.

According to MSNBC.com, “Millbrook’s room had been cleaned many times since Jan. 28, workers told police. The room also had been rented out several times since her disappearance.

On Monday, motel staff called detectives after a foul odor coming from the room led to the discovery.

Police said Millbrook’s body had been stuffed in the metal box frame, which sits on the floor. The box springs and mattress also set inside the metal frame.”
