Storage unit found full of body parts
Lungs, hearts and brains from more than 100 people

PENSACOLA, Fla. (WALA) - A multi-agency investigation continues into the discovery of human body parts found inside a Pensacola storage unit on August 24 in an effort to determine what, if any, laws may have been broken.

The remains were stored in plastic containers, specimen cups and trash bags inside Unit B12 at Uncle Bob’s Storage, 195 E. Fairfield Dr.

The unit was rented by Dr. Michael Berkland, a former associate medical examiner who is no longer licensed in Florida.

Lungs, hearts, tissue samples, and 10 brains were among the body parts from more than 100 people found in the air-conditioned unit. The body parts were stored in formaldehyde in plastic containers, plastic bags, and even a 32-ounce Styrofoam cup from a convenience store. Some of the containers had cracked and leaked.

The discovery was reported to police on Friday. Storage shed Manager George Klages told police contents of the unit had been sold for $900 during an auction on August 22. As the purchaser began cleaning out the unit, cardboard boxes of plastic containers holding the remains were found.

Klages told police Berkland rented the unit from April 8, 2009 until it was auctioned August 22. He said Berkland was late on rental payments several times during the lease, but usually paid right before the unit contents were to be auctioned. The storage unit also contained office furniture and other property.

It is believed the remains are from autopsies Berkland did between 1997 and 2007 at funeral homes in Pensacola, Tallahassee, Fort Walton Beach, and Panama City. There were labels on some of the containers of a person’s name and autopsy date but other containers did not have identification indicators.

The remains have been given to the Medical Examiner’s Office. The Pensacola Police Department is not releasing the inventory because some of the decedent families may not be aware of the investigation.

Berkland worked for the Medical Examiner’s Office between 1997 and May 2003 when he was fired for failing to complete autopsy reports in a timely manner.

The discovery is being investigated by the State Attorney’s Office, the Medical Examiner’s Office and the Pensacola Police Department.

For some odd reason, Monty Python's Spam song with the word "brains" instead of "spam" popped into my head. Maybe I've been here too long

If that's his storage I'd hate to see what he keeps in the garage.

Re: Pensacola Storage Unit Of Death

I don't know what I would do if I spent $900 on a storage unit and saw all that... lifetime of transplants all in one storage lol. Probably can't be used.

Re: Pensacola Storage Unit Of Death

Cool but nothing sinister.

It's not uncommon for Medical Examiners to have specimens from decades ago. If you watch some of the crime shows and you see evidence rooms that have shit back to the early 1900's... this is NO different except with tissue evidence that can potentially decompose or go bad
