Bomb squad called out to Paul Avenue

 

After finding a man dead in his home Thursday, police also found a suspicious looking container.

Police were called to Paul Avenue on Thursday at 10:50 a.m. to do a welfare check on a man who hadn't been heard from in a few weeks. He was found dead.

"It didn't look like a traditional bomb device but we weren't sure," Yaeger said of what was described as a "container with a screw lid."

He said police decided to play it safe and called in the bomb squad, and the resulting numbers of police and fire personnel on the scene alarmed neighborhood residents. Police had to ask themselves, "Do we just cut it open and look, or do we err on the side of safety and do it the right way?" Yaeger said.

It appears that man was suffering from an illness and died of natural causes. "It doesn't look like suicide so far," Yaeger said.

The article says the bomb squad was called. Then what? Was there a bomb?

Yes, turned out to be an atomic bomb. It exploded and we're all dead.

The bomb turned out to be nothing. This was a friend of my mom's. It is strange how they left the story hanging like this though.
