When you buy someone else’s house, you inherit their past. Whether it’s their choice in wallpaper or the undisclosed termite infestation they left behind without a word, every owner makes his mark on the property. For one renter in Spanish Fork, Utah, someone else’s past came out to haunt him when he went to the cellar to retrieve his belongings. What he stumbled upon was horrifying, and it would change his life forever. Read on to learn what life changing discovery he made in his basement.
The anonymous tenant thought he was simply packing up his belongings to leave this home and move to a new one, but instead, he found in the outdoor cement cellar a human skull.
“The tenant who was moving out this morning was removing some items from the cement cellar in the backyard,” explained Lt. Matt Johnson with Spanish Fork Police, according to Pix 11. “He became somewhat curious and he and the individual with him decided to dig and remove some of the soil.” He continued, “They dug down approximately 18 inches and found a human skull wrapped in a blanket.”
That was thirty years ago, and today forensics teams are excavating the cellar looking for evidence. The police have stated that identifying the skull could take quite some time, but they are convinced it belongs to Peggy. They have stated that if it comes back as a positive match to Peggy Sue Case, they plan to locate Kurfin, who is believed to be currently residing in Illinois.
