Human Body Washes Up On Plum Island

It’s not a monster this time, but a human corpse. With “very long fingers”. Hmmm.

via NY Daily News:

PLUM ISLAND, N.Y. — A human body has washed ashore on suburban New York’s tiny Plum Island, where the U.S. government has an aging lab for studying dangerous animal diseases.

Police say a security guard on foot patrol discovered the clothed body Thursday afternoon on the southwest beach area of the island, where access is restricted.

Police say the partially decomposed body was that of a white male about 6 feet tall with a large build and very long fingers. They say there were no obvious signs of trauma.

The Suffolk County medical examiner will perform an autopsy to determine the cause of death.

Plum Island is about 100 miles northeast of New York City in the Long Island Sound. It has been called a potential target for terrorists because of its stock of vaccines and diseases, such as African swine fever.

    There's another interesting conspiracy connected to Plum Island. The island is right across the water from Lyme, Connecticut, which was ground zero for the so-named “Lyme Disease” outbreak.

    Lab 257, located on Plum Island, was nicknamed by researchers themselves as “the Biological Three Mile Island”, and served as an animal research laboratory, but was recently closed under Congressional directive.

    The lab had a creepy history already, even having employed a Nazi doctor who was hired to run the lab after World War II. His particular area of speciality? Work on using ticks as possible carriers for biological agents.

    An interesting documentary on all this is called “Under Our Skin”, which has won a number of awards. The personal testimony in the film is just astonishing. You can get that here:

    Another interesting read on the matter can be found in Michael C. Carroll's book, “Lab 257: The Disturbing Story of the Government’s Secret Plum Island Germ Laboratory”.
