A woman from Ireland had been driving a rental car when she discovered something that made her blood run cold.
The woman, who was in her 20s, had rented out a car and was heading to the village of Mullinavat in County Kilkenny when she noticed a bad smell coming from inside the vehicle.
Upon stopping to investigate, she was shocked to discover a dead body in the boot of the car.
The deceased - a man in his 40s - had been reported missing and was believed to be the person who had rented out the vehicle immediately beforehand.
"She picked up the car at one of the GoCar depot spots and had just a short drive out to where she was heading, the village of Mullinavat, I'd say around five miles," one of the woman's close family members was quoted as saying.
"While she was driving she noticed a funny smell, she didn't know what it was, thought it smelled like gas and thought it might be coming from the car engine when she started the car."
"But it didn't go away and so she stopped the car when she got to Millivant and that's where she made the shocking discovery, there was the body of a dead man in the boot."
The rental company has since confirmed that it has been assisting the police in their investigation.
It remains unclear how the man died or how long he'd been lying in the boot before he was found.
