Home can be the most dangerous place...

In a small London bedsit, a radio is playing. A small dining table is set for three, and curled up on the sofa is a body...

Jenn is the one who discovers the woman, along with the bailiffs. All indications suggest that the tenant - Sarah Jones - was pretty, charismatic and full of life.

So how is it possible that her body has lain undiscovered for ten whole months?
