: More Bodies Found Behind Bank Till
I'm not sure. Unless it means more bodies were found behind the bank counter...not evident when a person first walks in the door.
A till (Merriam-Webster online) is:

Date: 15th century
1 a : a box, drawer, or tray in a receptacle (as a cabinet or chest) used especially for valuables b : a money drawer in a store or bank; also : CASH REGISTER
