AZTEC, N.M. (AP) — Flooding in New Mexico washed up an unexpected item in one small city — a casket.
The Daily Times reports (http://bit.ly/15Lk9xV) that the rusty casket washed up in an arroyo near Aztec Speedway during the recent flooding in northwestern New Mexico.
The casket's appearance mystified Aztec Well Servicing employees, and when an employee opened it he found what he thought were bones.
But Aztec Police Sgt. Joseph Gonzalez said nothing but trash, towels and junk were inside.
Anti-zoning advocate Carl Bannowsky, who lives near where the body-less coffin was found, says he's sure the mysterious casket is his.
He says one of his three caskets washed away during a recent monsoon rain.
Bannowsky says he collects old cars but had purchased the casket at an auction in the 1980s.
