Storage Auction: Cold Case Edition

Most people see storage unit auctions as a fun and exciting way to kill some time as a hobby or to make a living, however it is tough to imagine that any of us are prepared to find evidence from a murder case over 10 years old in the storage unit that we just won. Imagine opening that storage unit looking for what treasures you have stumbled upon only to find bloody clothes, a hatchet, shell casings, a bloody sock, and more. While this sounds unbelievable and unfathomable this exact situation occurred in January 2017 when, per CBS local news in Denver, Rick Ratzlaff won a storage unit auction. At first he was excited to have won the unit as there were an assortment of police lights from cop cars that Ratzlaff was interested in, however as he dug further he discovered evidence from the 2006 murder of a 17-year-old girl. The storage unit was rented out to a deputy of the Fremont sheriff’s office and an investigation was launched into how this evidence ended up in an offsite storage facility. For the opportunity to add some unforgettable and uncanny adventures to your life, consider attending some of your local storage unit auctions and make sure to get your information to the best Storage Unit Auction information provider,
