So basically, it's a gamble. They might make a winning bid of a $600 and end up with items they can sell for several thousand dollars, or bid $2500 and discover nothing of value in those boxes.
I couldn't help but think of those "gamblers" when I read that when the family of a 80 year-old deceased man found and unplugged freezer in his storage unit. Inside the freezer were a person's remains, which police believe may be that of a woman who dated the deceased man and disappeared 28 years ago! The storage unit had been rented by this man since 1992 and had reportedly visited the unit from time to time over the years..
Was he still "courting" his dead girlfriend? Who knows? It certainly is a bizarre find and must have been a terrible shock to the family members who were going through his belongings. And of course this may bring sad closure to the family of the missing woman.
It looks like there's a strong possibility that the deceased man got away with murder. I can't help but wonder what went through his mind all those years. Was he living in fear of being discovered? Was he laughing inside because he'd committed the "perfect" crime? Did he regret what he'd done? Was he riddled with guilt until his death? I guess we may never know.
Sorry to for such a grim post, but it was just so bizarre I had to do it. Back to my usual lighter fare tomorrow!
