Remember the guy police caught in a shop's ventilation system who claimed to have been playing a game of hide and seek? Well, a vent shaft may be a very good hiding place but that's nothing compared to this:
The long, narrow barn has an open-air trough that runs along one side of the building and flows into a vat covered by a steel grate. The setup allowed the farmers who once used the barn to spray the animal manure from the floor into a holding tank.
An officer looked down and there, through the steel grate in the floor, he could see the 52-year-old man, just his head peering out from the cesspool deep with frigid feces, said Chief Deputy Doug Harp of the Noble County Sheriff’s Department. “The pig operation hadn’t been in there for a while, but the previous tenant had been using it for dog kennels,” Harp said.
