KNIGHTSTOWN, Ind. (WISH) - A Henry County family that discovered bones in the attic and basement of its home has discovered even more.
With concern that its initial discoveries may be more than the remnants of a former mortician, the family continued searching their property for bones. Without much difficulty, family members found a few more bones.
Police are holding onto the latest set of bones, which will be turned over to the county coroner for examination. In the meantime, family members plan to keep digging.
"We've had thoughts we might run into a bigger piece of bone, more identifiable. Like maybe a skull or something," said Michelle Hudson, whose aunt Pat Booher rents the home.
Booher said ever since the discovery in the attic of embalming fluids and autopsy photographs, she won't stay in the house by herself.
"It's not made me scared," she said. "Just uneasy. I feel like we need to be finding out what went on."
Booher said the most disturbing thing they found was a set of human autopsy photographs that were handed over to police.
"I looked at some of the those," said said Cpt. Anthony Lorton, Knightstown Police Department. "It looked like before-and-after photos. Kind of like, it sounds creepy to us, but for someone that that is their trade, if they're going to be job hunting, they're going to be showing before-and-after photos of their work."
Whether the bones found are human or not, family members are anxious to know who buried the remains and why the remains were left there.
