go into the trunk with a flashlight and ask a pal to spray water on the rear end of the car with a hose. You'll see where it leaks from

The most likely place is from around the rear lights. Check it as said above and then you will need a $2 tube of sealant to put around them.

A quick fix for preventing accummulation of rust, mold and mildew, from water leaks into the trunk area. Just remove one of the rubber drain plug under the spare wheel well in the trunk and let the rain water drain out. This will do the trick until you are able to fix the leak.

"and water will come in everytime you drive in the rain too. Not a very smart thing to do. "

Not in my experience, this plug is not located in the rear driving wheel well, it is located in the middle of the car. Water does not jump from the road up into your trunk. This is known as gravity.
