"They're He-eere!"

A Louisiana real estate agent was showing a stately, split-level home, half of which was perched atop a circular mound, when he came across a stack of about 100 bones in the cellar. Obviously disturbed, he contacted officials. A forensic investigator from Terrebonne Parish said the bones were so old, dirt had seeped into the marrow!

The real estate agent soon learned the previous homeowners would find errant bones about the property whenever they were mowing the lawn or raking leaves. They casually tossed them into the pile in the basement and forgot to mention it.

It is thought the circular mound beneath the home is an Indian burial ground.

Neither the former homeowners nor the real estate agent returned calls, but The OddBlog believes this could be what's wrong with the market... in Terrebonne Parish, at least.
