Burt Reynold’s memorabilia

The unit had lots of fascinating objects including a horse carriage, a canoe from the 1972 ‘Deliverance’ film, a Smokey and the Bandit toy car, and a 1955 letter from his physician. The memorabilia was put in a museum to give fans of Burt’s work an opportunity to see them.

Disembodied organs, or how NOT to practice medicine
The winner of one auctioned self-storage unit was stunned to learn he had become the owner of amateurishly preserved human organs. The unit contained the organs of over 100 people kept in permeable plastic cups and food containers. They were stored by a former medical examiner, who was fired in 2003 for filing incomplete autopsy reports. The organs are thought to have been taken from private autopsies done at local funeral homes.
For anyone who has a fear of snakes this would be their worst nightmare. Minnesota detectives who uncovered 32 ball pythons in a unit intended to be a breeding site for the snakes. Tragically, the pythons were dead. The lawyer’s office sought to file animal cruelty charges against the tenant. It is never a good idea to keep pets or animals in storage units.
