Police officers in Columbus, Ohio made a gruesome discovery today while they were serving a search warrant for drugs!
Columbus news station 10TV reports that deputies with the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office were serving a search warrant at a home in the 1800 block of Bashan Drive around 7 a.m. when they found what they said looked like a homicide scene and called Columbus police.
Police confirmed body parts were found at the scene. Columbus police has since taken over the homicide investigation since the residence is in its jurisdiction.
“We are trying to find out if these body parts belong to one person or multiple people,” said Sgt. James Fuqua.
A man and a woman were taken in for questioning but no charges have been filed.
Neighbors tell 10TV that the home was a known drug house for about a year. They say two women who lived in the house have not been seen.
A specialty team, dressed in hazmat suits, were called in to remove the drugs and other chemicals.
The incident was first posted to social media, long before news outlets arrived at the scene, with commentators speculating that there were numerous bodies being taken from the house. Facebook users counted as many as 17 individual body bags. Those reports were debunked when the police reported that the multiple body bags that were seen being taken from the residence contained parts, not individual bodies although, there is a possibility for at least two victims.
We're praying for the families in the area who have missing loved ones and must be anxious and holding their breath while the authorities work to identify the identity of the victim or victims.
