The Marion Police Department said they received a call on Tuesday from a boy called George Hollingsworth who speculated his garage was broken into. Hollingsworth told police that the door frame was damaged and the garage was so cluttered that he couldn’t tell what was stolen, according to a press release.
While cleaning out the garage on Wednesday to see what might perhaps be stolen, Hollingsworth determined a body underneath a 900 -pound antique floor safe that had obviously fallen over, Deputy Chief Stephen D. Dorsey said.
“My mind couldn’t comprehend it, ” Hollingsworth told Indianapolis’ FOX 59. “I would have preferably experienced him steal trash and get out than die like that. What a terrifying acces to die.”
The Marion Fire Department helped Hollingsworth lift the safe and remove the body, according to police. Police recognized the failed burglar as 28 -year-old Jeremiah A. Disney, of Marion after an postmortem on Thursday. An investigation is ongoing.
