A suspected burglar was found crushed to death under a 900-pound safe in an Indiana house Tuesday.

According to the local authorities, the house owner George Hollingsworth called them Tuesday and said his garage was broken into. He told the police the door frame was damaged, and the garage was in such a state of mess that he wasn’t sure what was missing. However, on Wednesday, while he was attempting to clean the garage, he found a body underneath a 900-pound antique floor safe that had fallen over.

“I came in and told my wife, ‘I think we’ve got a dead body out there.’ She thought I was kidding,” Hollingsworth said before. His wife called 911 immediately. An emergency officer reached the scene. He went inside and called “Buddy. Hey buddy,” as Hollingsworth tried to tell him the man was dead, WXIN, the local TV station reported.

“My mind couldn’t comprehend it. I would have rather seen him steal stuff and get out than die like that. What a horrible way to die,” Hollingsworth said.

A statement about the attempted robbery was issued by the Marion Police Department, which said the burglar was 28-year-old Jeremiah A. Disney. The autopsy was conducted Thursday and the investigation was ongoing.

Marion Fire Department helped Hollingsworth and the police in lifting the safe so the body could be removed. Police did not release details about how the safe fell on Disney or when the incident occurred.

In November 2018, a thief from Texas bled to death during a home invasion that went wrong. The homeowner called 911 after he discovered 28-year-old Javier Tellez Jr. dead inside his home in El Paso, Texas. He said he found the man after seeing a pool of blood and a broken window in the house. Investigators found Tellez slashed his arms on the broken window and died after he lost a lot of blood.
