(Newser) – A teacher at Florida's Cape Coral High School returned to his classroom at the beginning of the school year and was greeted with a not-so-pleasant surprise: Inside one of the cabinets was a mason jar wrapped in a paper bag ... and inside the jar was a human fetus, WFTX reports. The 8-inch fetus, determined to be about four months past conception and bearing no signs of trauma, was in a formaldehyde solution and well-preserved, according to the police report. WBBH reports that the mystery may be solved—a former teacher apparently used it in child-development classes and it's at least 20 years old—but the sheriff's office is still investigating.
