GLADWIN, Mich. (WWJ) – A Michigan homeowner doing some spring cleaning made a very peculiar discovery — dozens of 1970-style women’s shoes and brassieres hidden in the walls.
Gladwin County homeowner Gwen Skover says she stumbled on the foundation garments and footwear when her son spotted a piece of drywall that didn’t look right.READ MORE: Michigan Matters: Impacting Health & Well-Being Across Metro Region
They found a gap, and behind it: 53 pairs of women’s shoes — some with bras jammed into them. Skover has only owned the home for eight years and was sure the garments didn’t belong to her.
She told WWJ Newsradio 950’s Dave Ramos she thought the whole thing was pretty funny at first.
“And the more we thought about it we thought, well, maybe it’s linked to something, you know. So we contacted the police,” Skover said.READ MORE: Detroit Police Department To Host Drive-Up Candy Stations On Oct. 31 At All Precincts
Responding investigators agreed it was pretty weird, but did not believe there was a crime involved. “They don’t have any unsolved mysteries or anything, so everything is good,” Skover said.
Skover certainly did not try anything on or consider keeping a shoe or two.
“Oh God, no!” she said. “…The mice had gotten into it, and, you know, made little nests everywhere. They were pretty damaged.”
