PAW PAW, Mich. - A human-sized heart found at a southwestern Michigan car wash has investigators wondering whether it came from a person or an animal.

The organ was discovered in a corner of a manual wash bay at Soapy's Car Wash, Paw Paw police said. The owner of the business found it Monday on the floor of the bay, according to WOOD-TV in Grand Rapids and WWMT-TV in Kalamazoo.

Police first took the heart to an animal clinic, where a veterinarian was unable to determine its origin. The next stop was a local cardiologist, who said that while it was "consistent in size to a human heart," he could not make a conclusive determination as to its source, said police Chief Patrick W. Alspaugh.

The chief took the organ Tuesday to Lansing's Sparrow Hospital, where forensic scientists were to examine it.

"If it's a human heart, that prompts the question, 'Then where's the body?'" Alspaugh told the Kalamazoo Gazette.

He said he didn't know when the forensic scientists will give him their findings.

If it turns out that the heart came from an animal, it would not be the first time that someone has left animal parts at the car wash

The owner told police that animal parts had been left before at the car wash, but never a heart.

Any bets they were dressing a kill, and left the heart behind.

So figuring someone murdered someone and cut out their heart, the question then is...

why would he throw the heart out the window of his car inside a car wash? What does that possibly accomplish?

Oddly, although this original post is three years old, I can't find anything in Google News' archives later than the next day, when this was reported:

http://www.blueridgenow.com/article/20081219/NEWS/812190272/1197?Title=Heart_found_at_Mich__car_wash__origin_unknown

Pathologists who examined a heart found this week at a southwestern Michigan car wash still haven't determined whether it came from a human or an animal.

They plan to submit the organ for DNA testing in an effort to find out once and for all.

So it seems to have remained a mystery, or else I guess not have been that interesting.

Now that's an expensive car wash. I've heard of costing an arm and a leg, but this is ridiculous! :eek:

Am I the only one who read the title as the heart being the size of a human?

Seriously though, this is a bit disturbing...

I think it belongs to the Grinch. With it growing three sizes that day, it would be about human size. I think somebody still held a grudge against him for breaking into all those houses, and did some vigilante justice on him.
