Just saw this in today's paper. Y'know, every time I watch "Storage Wars" on TV I always wonder if something like this has ever happened... now I know!! Human organs found in Fla. storage unitPENSACOLA, FLA. - A former medical examiner crudely preserved human brains, hearts, and lungs in soda cups and plastic food containers found inside a storage unit in Florida, authorities said Tuesday.
A man bought the contents of the storage unit at auction last week in Pensacola and made the gruesome discovery after being overpowered by a strange smell while sifting through furniture and boxes.
Authorities said the unit had been rented by Dr. Michael Berkland, who worked at the medical examiner's office from 1997 until 2003, when he was fired for not completing autopsy reports. Officials were trying to determine whether Berkland broke any laws.
That last line kills me. "Trying
to determine" if the guy broke any laws? YA THINK? Geez.
Imagine what it must've been like for the poor b@stard who found this stuff.
(Sifts through boxes) "Junk...junk...junk...hey, what the hell is that? AAAAAAIIIIIIGH
I'd need therapy for the rest of my life.
I hope the auctioneers gave him his money back.
