People keep lots of unusual things in storage units, from historical artifacts to Nicholas Cage’s long-lost comic book. But this story is a new one: the body of a woman who died in 1995 was found in a coffin in a U-Stor storage unit in Clearwater, Fla.
The woman’s death certificate has been located, and police say there was nothing suspicious about the way she died. There hasn’t been any news as to how or why the woman’s remains ended up in the family storage unit. However, improper disposal of a body is indeed a crime. No charges have been brought against the storage renter yet. On Friday, news came out that the renter’s mother’s remains had indeed been properly disposed of through a funeral home, quelling any suspicion that there was another storage unit with a sinister surprise somewhere in Clearwater.
