Mystery heart found in Ziploc bag in field

Mystery heart found in Ziploc bag in field

Cleveland 19 News Cleveland, OH

 

“This is pretty unusual. We have no idea where it came from,” said Sgt. Jim Fulton, with Norwalk Police Department.

In late August, a North Central EMS crew idling at the Friendship Store on Milan Avenue came across the heart. Fulton said the heart was in good condition and had only just started to decompose. He says there’s no indication it was part of a violent crime.

“I talked to the Lucas County Coroner and she seemed to think that it hadn’t been in that field very long. It could have possibly been frozen prior to that,” said Fulton.

Initially, the paramedic who discovered it, actually put it in the dumpster nearby but was later instructed to retrieve it for an investigation.

Fulton says they don’t even know if a crime has been committed here.

“We don’t have a body that we’re missing a heart from. So I guess it’s an unusual occurrence, is what you would say. It’s what’s listed on our report. We hope to be able to classify it as something else and close this out,” he said.
