How common is this problem?

Novel idea to use light poles in cities to host all sorts of services for the public. One of the proposed use cases is searching for buried bodies. First thought was how often will killers be burying bodies by the light poles unless they didn’t bring a flashlight.

With a reread after the spit take, I realize the intent was after disasters, but in that case won’t the poles near the incident also be affected and unable to be used to search for bodies.

I wish the research team well and hope they “Don’t Stop Believing”
