Since dead bodies are supposed to be buried in the ground the dream reflects aspects in your life that you are unable to let go. A symbol that encourages the dreamer to reflect what areas in their lives that needs to be metaphorically buried. Alternatively, this could be related to dead weight or trying to get rid of something negative in your life. If the dead body is in your house it suggests a psychological problem that is unconscious to you. If the dead body is floating in water relates to a toxic emotional state. A dead body in a coffin can be seen as a positive symbol that suggest you will bury this problem soon. See coffin dreams. To notice a dead baby represent an ending in some sort of new development, idea or inner growth. See dead baby dreams.
