An Indiana homeowner was investigating a break-in at his home — when he uncovered the burglar dead beneath a 900-pound safe in his garage.

George Hollingsworth found the body on Wednesday during a sweep of his home to see if any items had been taken.


“My mind couldn’t comprehend it. This can’t be real. It’s like some strange tale,” Hollingsworth told WXIN.

According to a statement by the Marion Police Department, “Upon cleaning [his garage], he found that his antique floor safe weight over 900 pounds was knocked over. Upon further inspection Mr. Hollingsworth found a body lying underneath the safe.”

Firefighters eventually lifted the safe to move the body.

The man’s identity has not been released.

Hollingsworth wishes the situation had turned out differently.

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