This man, Davis Wahlman was shocked to say the least when he heard strange noises coming from the basement. He founded a dark haired woman, who said “Jimmy’ was letting her live there. The only thing was, he had no idea who Jimmy was, and his name wasn’t Jimmy. She apparently snuck in and decided to crash there for a while. He was first alarmed when he found this window screen in his bathtub. Like most people would do, he called the police, but the mystery woman, had already fled the scene. Trying to have sense of humor about the situation, he posted this on his twitter account say, “Everyone’s out there catching Pokemon, meanwhile, I’m catching weird ladies in my basement”.
5. Cold Hard Cash
This seems like everyone’s dream when there getting some cleaning done! If you came across 45,000 dollars in the attic, would you return to the previous owner of the house? A man named Josh Ferrin in Utah, had just closed a deal on a new home. Not long after, he came across the bags full of money in the attic. They were originally in an ammunition case that looked like it was from the world war II era. Looking inside, he found rolls upon rolls of cash. This attic had more rolls than a bakery. Josh first saw the money as a great way out of having to pay a large amount of bills but he did the honest thing and returned it to the previous owner, trying to set a good example to his kids. How do you really forget about that much money in the freakin’ attic!
4. A Mummy?
A man in Germany named Alex, came across a startling discovery in his home. It’s believed that his grandfather had taken a few trips to Egypt in the 1950’s but it’s unconfirmed where it came. You see the extensive hieroglyphics and the mummy itself but does it seem a little too well preserved? Turns out the mummy is made of plastic and it’s really a forgery. Modern day scientists could tell pretty quickly that it was fake but maybe not so easily in the 1950’s. It’s believed that the cloth was also from the 21st century and were machine made, Other items like a death mask and canopic jars that were used to store organs.

The Head of a King
It’s not everyday that you clean the attic and find the mummified severed head of a French monarch but this kinda stuff does happen. This baffling discovery, was made by a French person living in the city of Angers. Born in Pau, France, King Henri the IV was the first protestant King of France and this caused much uproar since France was mostly Catholic. Eventually he was brutally executed in Paris at the Age of 56. Once he was buried, graverobbers, severed his head and sold it on the black market. King Henry was identified by his wounds from prior assassination attempts, including knife gash to the upper jaw. Historian were under debate about whether or not this was really him, so they even used DNA samples from prevois French monarchs who shared the same blood line and it was still a match! Some people in France, like the Duke d’Anjou, called for the head to be reburied out of respect, with the rest of the body.
