Human-Sized Mystery Heart Found at Michigan Car Wash

PAW PAW, Mich. — A human-sized heart found at a southwestern Michigan car wash has investigators wondering whether it came from a person or an animal.

The organ was discovered in a corner of a manual wash bay at Soapy's Car Wash, Paw Paw police said. The owner of the business found it Monday on the floor of the bay, according to WOOD-TV in Grand Rapids and WWMT-TV in Kalamazoo.

Police first took the heart to an animal clinic, where a veterinarian was unable to determine its origin. The next stop was a local cardiologist, who said while it was "consistent in size to a human heart," he could not make a conclusive determination as to its source, said police Chief Patrick W. Alspaugh.

The chief took the organ Tuesday to Lansing's Sparrow Hospital, where forensic scientists were to examine it.

"If it's a human heart, that prompts the question, 'Then where's the body?"' Alspaugh told the Kalamazoo Gazette.

He said he didn't know when the forensic scientists will give him their findings.

If it turns out that the heart came from an animal, it would not be the first time that someone has left animal parts at the car wash

The owner told police that animal parts had been left before at the car wash, but never a heart.

I bet it was from a hunter? A deer or moose heart would be comparable in size, wouldnt it?

Umm... NO. They would be MUCH larger.

From a small deer, maybe, but a moose heart is huge.

I'm thinking it's from roadkill caught in the undercarriage of a car?

Pft. Soapy's my ass.

I'm quite sure this car wash is really called Gateway to Hell & Damnation Carwash. You know, where it's commonplace to find various body parts while you get your car cleaned.

Yeah, I find animal parts at my work all the time. It didn't creep me out until a heart showed up.

Maybe the heart is related to the feet that have been washing up in BC. :|

You never know when it will strike, but there comes a moment at work when you know that you just aren't going to do anything productive for the rest of the day.
