  • A Woman in North Carolina bought $30 freezer from her neighbour’s garage sale 
  • The seller asked the woman not to open it as it was being used as a “time capsule”
  • Police has confirmed that human remains were found inside the freezer

Goldsboro, N.C., June 1,2016: A woman in North Carolina bought $30 freezer from her neighbor’s garage sale and chill ran down her spine when she found dead body parts inside it.

The woman from Goldsboro, North Carolina was in utter shock when she looked into the freezer. She said “I was just in shock. I opened it up for a second time and my heart went into my throat. I ran out of the house and called 911.”

According to The WNCN, the buyer did not open the freezer for 3 weeks and when she did, women found the dead body parts of human inside it. The woman did not open it immediately as the seller had told her that it was being used as a “time capsule”.

The seller of the freezer told the women that it was a part the project she was doing with her church school class and that people from church will come and pick the freezer’s contents. But they never came, so the women opened it and believes she found her neighbour’s dead mother.

“She sold me her frozen mother for $30. How do you do something like that??” the woman said.

Goldsboro Police confirmed that human remains were found.

When police asked the women about the seller she said, “(She was) Just the sweetest lady. I mean quiet, kept to herself, stayed at home. Just unbelievable how she could just stick her mom in a freezer.”

The freezer seller has reportedly left the town after the sale, claiming she is headed to West Virginia to take care of her mother. Currently, police are investigating this incident as felony concealing or failing to notify the death of a person.

U.S. Library of Congress will not collect every tweet on twitter

US, Dec 31, 2017: The U.S. Library of Congress says it will no longer collect every single tweet published on Twitter as it has been doing for the past 12 years.

The library said this week that it can no longer collect everything across the entire social media platform because of recent changes Twitter has made, including allowing longer tweets, photos and videos.

It said in a blog post this week that its first objective with collecting and archiving tweets was “to document the emergence of online social media for future generations.” The library says it has fulfilled that objective and no longer needs to be a “comprehensive” collector of tweets.

The Library of Congress said it will still collect and archive tweets in the future, but will do so on a more selective basis. It said going forward “the tweets collected and archived will be thematic and event-based, including events such as elections, or themes of ongoing national interest, e.g. public policy.”

The library said it generally does not collect media comprehensively, but said it made an exception for public tweets when the social media platform was first developed.

The library said it will keep its previous archive of tweets from 2006-2017 to help people understand the rise of social media and to offer insight into the public mood during that time. “Throughout its history, the Library has seized opportunities to collect snapshots of unique moments in human history and preserve them for future generations,” it said.

“The Twitter Archive may prove to be one of this generation’s most significant legacies to future generations. Future generations will learn much about this rich period in our history, the information flows, and social and political forces that help define the current generation,” it said. (VOA)
