Creepy finding

Construction workers in Valdosta, Georgia made a terrifying discovery on Tuesday. As they were tearing down the wall in a commercial building, they discovered thousands of human teeth inside of the wall. Someone later posted a photo of the teeth to Facebook, and it began to be shared across.

Ellen Hill, Valdosta Main Street director, said the downtown agency caught news of the teeth through social media and began research into the building’s history.

According to a researcher quoted in the Valdosta Daily Times, the first tenant of the building, in 1900, was a dentist named Dr. Clarence Whittington. Another tenant was Dr. Lester G. Youmans, who remained in Converse until at least 1930.

The Daily Times also pointed out that teeth in walls have been found in two other Georgia cities as well, both times in buildings that previously had dental offices as tenants.

Unfortunately, the teeth have been thrown away, despite the local historical society asserting they’d be “happy to receive the teeth.”

“I’m not sure if it was a common practice between dentists at that time, but it’s very strange that there were two other people that said, ‘Hey, we’ve had that happen, too,’” Ellen Hill said.

VPD Lt. Adam Bembry said nothing has been reported to the police department as of press time.

“Nothing has been reported to us yet; so far, we have not been notified or have located any evidence of a crime,” he said.
