Found inside BBQ Grill: An Amputated Leg!

Here's a bizarre story: a man bought a barbecue smoker from a storage facility auction and found an amputated leg inside of it!

John Wood's leg was amputated near the knee after a 2004 airplane crash. He asked doctors to give it to him so he could be buried as a whole man when he died.

The limb, which Wood had kept in the smoker at a storage facility after he lost his home, was bought by Shannon Whisnant last Tuesday in an auction of items from units that were behind on rent.

Whisnant then made a show out of the amputated limb:

... Whisnant, who put a sign on the empty smoker charging adults $3 and children $1 for a look, wants it back.

"He's making a freak show out of it," Wood, of Greenville, S.C., told The Charlotte Observer. "He wants to put money in his pocket with this thing."

After a little brouhaha, it seems that the leg is now on its way back to its (original? rightful?) owner.
