Police made an astonishing discovery this morning while executing a search warrant at the residence of a Bloomington mortician: 250 embalmed human penises.
Authorites suspected 54-year old Paul Houston, an employee of the McLean County Coroner’s Office, of being implicated in an organ trafficking network.
Investigating several reports of missing organs and body parts, dozens of police raided his residence this Monday morning, hoping to find evidence of his involvement in the crimes.
What they found on the site was a lot more disturbing than what they expected, as the Police spokesman Andy Ramirez described the scene in an interview with WMBD.
“There were shelves everywhere, filled with hundreds of glass jars. Each of them contained a penis floating in formalin.”
According to Ramirez, the accused rapidly confessed everything as soon as he was arrested.
“He explained in great detail how he had been cutting off dead men’s genital organs and collecting them for more than ten years.”
It took the police more than seven hours to gather all the organs and other pieces of evidence that were found on the site.
A total of 53 criminal charges have already been filed against Mr. Houston and hundreds more could be filed over the next few days.
An anonymous police source told WMBD that the number of charges could reach over 600.
Paul Houston will remain in custody for the moment as a psychiatric evaluation has been ordered to determine if he’s fit to stand trial.
If he is considered fit, he should appear in court in October for the beginning of the procedures.
