Scientist Missing for over 30 years Found Living Inside Secret LSD Drug Lab Hidden in Basement

Officers say that they could hear the man yelling in the basement the moment they entered the Morgan’s home. But when they moved cautiously into the basement they saw nothing. However they could hear banging sounds coming from behind the northern wall of the Morgan family’s basement, specifically echoing from behind a large storage cabinet.
hen the Officers moved the large metal cabinet they uncovered an entry way to a large hidden room in the basement. The room was full of various science equipment along with a terrified, elderly man. The 83 year old man was identified as Dr. Winston Corrigan, a chemistry professor from the University of Minnesota who went missing in the fall of 1984 and was a previous resident of the home.
The Police recovered over $500,000 worth of lab equipment stolen from the University, along with 3 hand guns, an assault rifle, 50 years’ worth of military grade rations and twelve 55 gallon barrels (including three almost empty barrels) of what DEA labs have identified as pure liquid Lysergic acid diethylamide, a powerful hallucinogenic drug more commonly known as the street name LSD or Acid.


12 55 gallon barrels!!! Holy shit!

Their other stories like "robot bear named SeppuKuma to aid in assisted suicides" look real to me.

That is unbelievable. As in, I literally don't believe it. That is an absurd amount. Largest acid bust was 91lbs, and that was actually bs, as it turns out.

I saw the IFLScience tag, and didn't realize it was a .org not a .com (the real IFLS is a .com).

The story is quite similar to the plot of the movie Housebound.
