DAYTONA BEACH -- Two men and a woman who earlier had run from police soon wanted their help after coming face to face with skeletal remains in the attic of a home where they were hiding.
The remains were found at 6:15 p.m. Monday in the third-story attic of a duplex at 346 Maple St., police spokesman Sgt. Al Tolley said.
Police were after the three on violation of probation charges. They searched the house and were about to leave when one of the hiding suspects, Ben Gibson, 26, called out. "Get me out of here. There's a body,"
Bahahahaa!! they should have hid in the basement! that is funny

From January 2004:
Cooper said she has been complaining to Daytona Beach Zone 6 City Commissioner Charles Cherry, who manages the property, about a foul smell she could not find the source of or get rid of since she moved into the house three months ago.
Cooper said when she told Cherry about blood on the carpet in her daughter Samira's bedroom, he said it was likely from a deceased pet. Both the carpet and the kitchen tile were replaced when Cooper could not get rid of the stain or smell, she said. Without knowing it, "We were cleaning up evidence," Cooper said.
Investigators found similar stains behind the refrigerator and on the kitchen ceiling and took samples for testing, Tolley said.
Neighbors believe a badly decomposed body found in a Daytona Beach attic could have been there for a year...
They say, around Christmas of 2002, the upstairs was vacant. But the former renter would come back, sometimes with friends. Residents say they would break in. That was the same time Octavia Brown went missing. According to neighbors, she was there when the former resident had a confrontation with police.
"When the police came, he opened the door, but she never came out," says neighbor Sophia Isaac.
Police have not determined how Octavia Brown, who was 49 when she vanished around New Year's 2003, died or how her body ended up in the attic of the home at 346 Maple St.
