(NYP) – In a bizarre story coming out of Florida, Police are investigating the gruesome discovery of jars of human tongues in a home’s crawlspace, according to a report. The preserved organs were found during an inspection of the foundation in the Gainesville house, which was previously owned by Ronald Baughman, a former University of Florida researcher, according to WCJB.

Some of the jars date back to the 1960s. Investigators are looking into the possibility that Baughman, who published studies in the following two decades, may have brought the tongues home as part of his work, the news outlet reported. Baughman currently is a professor emeritus at the university, it added. FULL REPORT
