POLICE were called to premises in the Midlands early this morning where they discovered a family of five’s badly decomposed remains all huddled together on a three-seater sofa and clutching what forensics described as popcorn and two remote controls, it has been reported.
The police were called after neighbours reported a really bad odour coming from the three-bedroom semi-detached property. Some family members and friends also reported they hadn’t seen any of the family for weeks.
A family spokesperson said: “They were warned about Netflix and the dangers of trying to find something worthwhile to watch but they obviously didn’t listen.”
A police spokesperson told our reporters: “Our officers are currently receiving counselling after the grim discovery.
“Some of our younger officers were physically sick after learning it can take so long to find something worthwhile to watch on Netflix. It’s something quite new to them.”
Police are appealing to anyone who has a Netflix account to simply watch recommendations set out by Netflix or take advice from Facebook friends on what to watch on the subscription channel.
