Weird things happen in Florida, almost to an incredible degree. Nearly every day, some headlines read like jokes coming out of the Sunshine State, but all of them are truthful reports by the local media and police departments that have to handle all the strange cases.
One case in early 2020 was especially troubling. A building inspector discovered something horrifying in the crawlspace underneath a Gainesville house.
The police arrived to follow up and found six plastic gallon-size jars full of human tongues, and one with the long-since perished remains of what seemed to be an infant.
An investigation was launched immediately, first against the home’s owner, and then against her long-since divorced husband, a former professor, and researcher at the nearby University of Florida.
They found it shocking, but what was far more shocking ended up being the comparatively lackluster story on how they all got there in the first place…
9 Jaw-Dropping Discovery
Jorge Campos, the chief inspector of the local police department, was called in by the contractor when he found the mysterious, grotesque jars.
An initial investigation found that each jar was labeled with a woman’s first name, and inside were preserved tongues and nothing else.
Only one stood out as having tiny bones, which the inspector initially identified as belonging to an infant or, possibly, a late fetus.
8 Internet Investigation
The home inspector saw fit to publish his findings on Reddit, where the post gained immense popularity.
He shared disturbing photos of one of the jars’ contents, which featured the discolored, preserved human tongues in a solution.
After further investigation into the prospective owners, police concluded two things: the jars had been there since long before the former occupant moved out. That occupant was likely the unfortunate owner of the vessels.
