Paramedics in Norwalk, Ohio, found the organ in a field whilst they were passing time outside Norwalk’s Friendship Food Store.
Speaking to Cleveland 19 News, Sergeant Jim Fulton of the Norwalk Police Department said: “This is pretty unusual. We have no idea where it came from. I talked to the Lucas County Coroner and she seemed to think that it hadn’t been in that field very long. It could have possibly been frozen prior to that.”
The police added that they haven’t found a body that could be missing a heart, but they’re investigating where the organ could have come from. Authorities have also stressed that the public should not be concerned.
Jim added: “We don’t want the public to be worry. Like someone ripping out people’s hearts – we don’t think that’s the case here.”
