Pensacola, Florida- August 29, 2012

Numerous human organs and tissues were found inside a Pensacola, Florida storage shed and some media outlets are reporting that some of those body parts are from our area.

The State Attorney's Office says the organs were accidentally discovered at Uncle Bob's Storage late last week.

Officials say the unit was being rented out by former assistant medical examiner Michael Berkland.

No one is sure exactly how long the organs were there.

According to the Pensacola News Journal, the Medical Examiner's Office said the remains appear to be from private autopsies that Berkland performed between 1997 and 2007 at funeral homes in Pensacola, Panama City, Fort Walton Beach and Tallahassee.

Officials are investigating the incident to find out if a crime was committed.
