VALDOSTA, GA. (THECOUNT) — Construction workers made a startling discovery while renovating a building in southern Georgia.

City officials say after crews knocked down a wall in the building they found nearly 1,000 human teeth that literally came spilling out.


While there is no clear explanation, officials said the building has been standing since 1900 and was home to dentist offices for several decades. source

The teeth will be donated to the Lowndes County Historical Society where they will be DNA-tested to find out who they belonged.
