Imagine doing some Spring cleaning and finding a perfectly preserved human hand. It actually happened for one man in Florida.

Mike Lopez of Tampa told NECN that his sister was doing some cleaning in his grandparents attic when she came across a small wooden box. Intrigued she of course opened it only to find a map, coins and a preserved human hand.

Some might say creepy, but Lopez is saying pirates! Seems the mysterious box may be linked to the notorious pirate Jose Gaspar.


A Tampa museum curator took a look, but it seems this mystery box is raising more questions rather than getting any answers.
