PAW PAW, Mich. (AP) A human-sized heart found at a southwestern Michigan car wash has investigators wondering whether it came from a person or an animal. The organ was discovered in a corner of a manual wash bay at Soapy's Car Wash, Paw Paw police said. The owner of the business found it Monday on the floor of the bay, according to WOOD-TV in Grand Rapids and WWMT-TV in Kalamazoo.

Police first took the heart to an animal clinic, where a veterinarian was unable to determine its origin. The next stop was a local cardiologist, who said while it was "consistent in size to a human heart," he could not make a conclusive determination as to its source, said police Chief Patrick W. Alspaugh.

The chief took the organ Tuesday to Lansing's Sparrow Hospital, where forensic scientists were to examine it.

"If it's a human heart, that prompts the question, 'Then where's the body?'" Alspaugh told the Kalamazoo Gazette.

...

If it turns out that the heart came from an animal, it would not be the first time that someone has left animal parts at the car wash

It'll probably turn out to be from a Canadian, they seem to be careless with body parts.

I dunno. It looks like a beef heart to me but they said it was human-sized.

That would make sense, given the location. Lots of deer in that area around Kalamazoo. I'll be driving through Paw Paw on Christmas, on my way to visit family in St. Joe/Benton Harbor.

I thought they said it was human, not grizzly. (Okay, that joke doesn't work too well in text.)
