‘I think we’ve got a dead body out there.’

Man finds a would-be robber crushed under his 900 pound safe.

AOL-

Homeowner George Hollingsworth told police he began inventorying items in his garage after discovering the door frame was damaged on Tuesday evening.

While cleaning out clutter the following day, Hollingsworth discovered his 900-pound antique floor safe had been knocked over. Upon further inspection, he realized there was a body underneath the large piece of furniture.

“My mind couldn’t comprehend it. This can’t be real. It’s like some strange tale,” Hollingsworth told WXIN. “I came in and told my wife, ‘I think we’ve got a dead body out there.’ She thought I was kidding.”

First responders were able to lift the heavy antique and pull out the crushed body, later identified as 28-year-old Jerimiah Disney.

In a statement, investigators said the safe, which had been held up by a floor jack, likely fell onto the intruder as he rummaged through the cluttered garage.

But despite the victim’s intentions, Hollingsworth told WXIN that he wishes the man had simply gotten away with his attempted burglary.

“I would have rather seen him steal stuff and get out than die like that,” he told the station. “What a horrible way to die.”

  1. Nah. Better things have been ironed out, so to speak.

    If more burglars are squashed by safes, the less burglariea we’ll have.

  2. Trust the legal system this ain’t over …
    look for a ambulance chasing lawyer lawsuit.

    Less you forget a store owner down in Fla. was sued by the family of a Burglar. That electrocuted himself in doing so, about 8 years ago.

  6. Dude might want to suit up in ty-vec, buy a good respirator mask and empty that garage out. If that’s bodily fluids they keep highlighting in the video, he’s going to regret not hosing that out.

  7. I’d Lawyer if I was that homeowner.
    Like Steve T said, some ambulance chaser will sue him for the unsafe safe.
    He better have had the doors locked or he will be ruined.

    he’s just thankful they didn’t open the safe and find his ex-wife. The one who went missing 14 years ago. (just joking)

  11. Man, that’s a shame. It’s gonna take a lot of bleach and elbow grease to get the stench of that dead body juice off the front of that safe.
