Where is the dead body?

That is the first question people had asked when they smelled the stench at the intersection of Kings Mountain and Greer roads in Woodside recently.

Dozens of voodoo lilies were blooming on the corner. The exotic looking purple flowers may look attractive, but they stink like rotting flesh in order to attract flies.

Growing up to 3 feet high, the plants are much shorter and more common than another stinky plant called corpse flower.
