Two Bodies Dug Out of Horse Manure in Gary

By Chuck Sudo in News on Apr 25, 2011 4:40PM

The story of two bodies discovered in a fifteen-foot high pile of horse manure in a Gary, IN stable brings to our mind parallels of the Spilotro brothers ultimate fate in an Indiana corn field. A man who was boarding his horse at the stable discovered an arm sticking out of the mound of guano. Police dug out the two bodies, one of them -- a male -- was wrapped in plastic. Both bodies were bloated and it is uncertain as of now how long the two have been dead.

Autopsies are pending.
