Police in Clearwater, Fla., were called to uncover a woman's skeletal remains, which were being kept in a blue coffin at a storage unit facility.

According to reports from the Tampa Bay Times and Associated Press, the manager of the facility called the renter of the unit because she was behind on her rent. The woman told the manager her grandmother was in the unit.


Police found the remains -- the woman died in 1995, according to a death certificate -- inside a blue coffin. The woman who rented the unit told police that her mother informed her of her grandmother's remains as she was on her deathbed last year.

The Tampa Bay Times reported that medical examiners told police the grandmother's body was indeed properly processed for burial, but it was unclear why she was kept in the storage unit.
