Chances are, you don’t spend a lot of time thinking about what’s hiding inside the walls of your home. But looking through this list of disturbing things that other people have found in there, maybe you should. After all, whether it’s alive or dead, an inanimate object or just something totally horrifying, you never know what might be lurking in there. Fingers crossed it’s not any of these, though.
20. A hidden corridor
Back in 2005, first-time buyers Kerri and Jason Brown found what seemed like their perfect starter home. Until, that is, they stumbled upon a passageway to a secret room, hidden inside a wall. That may sound exciting, but the corridor was actually filled with toxic black mold, and the previous owner had had to get out, for the sake of their children’s health.
19. A live bomb
Of all the things to find in the wall of your home, there’s surely nothing more immediately frightening than a live bomb. But that’s exactly what the Wittmans found lurking inside their bathroom wall in 2011. The alarmed couple quickly took the Korean War-era device outside and called the police, who evacuated the neighborhood. Eventually, the bomb squad arrived and safely detonated the small, green bomb.
