Easter Egg Hunt Leads Woman To Corpse In Own Backyard

Fun turned horror for a US woman and her 3-year-old-son who found a decomposed body in their backyard during their traditional Easter egg hunt.

The woman, Tara Hanouskova, from Knoxville, Tennessee, said she had noticed a foul smell but didn't find the source.

It was only while searching for chocolate Easter eggs in her garden with her son that Tara noticed tennis shoes in the crawl space under her deck.

According to Fox News, quoting Knoxville Police Department spokesman Darrell DeBusk, the man had been dead about two weeks.

The autopsy, however, did find that the man suffered from a medical condition that could have led to his death, which will be listed as natural causes unless something turns up in the final autopsy report.

The police are still trying to find out the man's identity.

Egg hunt is a game during which decorated eggs, real hard-boiled ones or artificial, filled with or made of chocolate candies, of various sizes, are hidden in various places for children to find, says the Wikipedia.

The Easter egg, for Christians, is a reminder that Jesus rose from the grave, and that those who believe will also experience eternal life.
