When Shannon Whisnant purchased a smoker at a Storage Wars-style auction in 2007, he never expected it to make him famous. Yet, it was what he found inside of it that would do just that. Once the sale was official and he’d returned home, the Maiden, North Carolina, man opened it up and was met by the site of a severed-just-below-the-knee human leg.
Not long after, the leg’s biological owner came calling for what he believed was his. When Shannon refused, invoking the ancient right of finders keepers, the resulting custody battle would take his already bizarre story to the next level.
Wow. Now that is one heck of a story. Hopefully the movie received lots of standing ovations! And if you’re wondering, TV’s Judge Mathis awarded the foot to John Woods.
