Over the past five years, witnesses have seen full jars, partially filled jars, and even a jar topped with a bow for Christmas. Now, the search for the culprit who's been leaving pickle jars on an I-270 ramp in Des Peres, Mo., is heating up, per Fox 2. "There has got to be a story behind these pickles and inquiring minds want to know," reads a Facebook group dedicated to the mystery, alive since at least 2012. To its nearly 2,000 members—many of whom have joined in the last few days, per the Kansas City Star—solving the case is a big dill, er, deal. A jar spotted Wednesday morning is their latest clue, according to one user. (More Missouri stories.)
