Scientist Missing For Over 20 years Found Living Inside Secret LSD Drug Lab Hidden in Basement?

A Couple from Cottage Grove, Minnesota discovers a man living inside a secret laboratory inside their basement.  On Tuesday, officers with the Warrington County Sheriffs Office went to the Morgan family’s home after receiving a call of a possible break in.  When the officers pulled up they saw the Morgan Family standing by the road.

“They ran up to use and said they heard a man shouting inside their basement and that’s when they called it in to 911” Said Captain Bruce Normans with the Warrington County Sheriff’s Office.

Officers say they could hear the man yelling in the basement the moment they entered the Morgan’s home.  But when they moved cautiously into the basement they saw nothing but could hear banging sounds coming from behind the northern wall of the Morgan family’s basement, specifically echoing from behind a large storage cabinet.

“It was a very odd situation.  We assumed the possibility that a vagrant may have been trapped behind the cabinet and needed help” Officer Jim Catelli told Channel 6 news.

When the Officers moved the large metal cabinet they uncovered an entry way to a large basement room that was full of various science equipment along with a terrified, elderly man.  The 83 year old man was identified as Dr. Winston Corrigan, a chemistry professor from the University of Minnesota who went missing in the fall of 1984 and was a previous resident of the home.

“He had clearly been living down there for a long time and had suffered severe psychological trauma probably from not socializing with anyone for a while.  I don’t know if he had been living down there since the 80’s but I wouldn’t doubt it” Said EMT personnel Landon Choler.

Dr. Winston is currently being held at Abbott Northwestern Hospital in Minneapolis for observation but will eventually be sent to the state psychiatric ward in Prairie Hills Clinic where will undergo a psychiatric evaluation to determine the extent of any psychological illnesses and possibly reintroduced to modern society.

“I just can’t believe it….it’s just so odd.  The family that used to live there moved because they said the house was haunted so I guess that makes sense now.” Said a neighbor who had lived next door for 33 years.

The Police recovered over $500,000 worth of lab equipment stolen from the University, along with 3 Hand guns, an assault rifle, 50 years’ worth of military grade rations and twelve 55 gallon barrels (including three almost empty barrels) of what DEA labs have identified as pure liquid Lysergic acid diethylamide, a powerful hallucinogenic drug more commonly known as the street name LSD or Acid.

It is not yet known if or when Dr. Winston will be convicted of any crime.

        So are you saying this old man doing all of the acid committed treason by not sharing or is your post completely unrelated to the article?

      • Equalizer

        ExposeTheTruth is correct

        “Treason Against the United States”

        By Section 110 of Article III. of the Constitution of the United States, it is declared that:

        “Treason against the United States shall consist only in levying war against them, or in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort. No person shall be convicted of treason unless on the testimony of two witnesses to the same overt act, or on confession in open Court. The Congress shall have power to declare the punishment of treason.”

        So after 20 years tripping on LSD in a basement he is soon going to find out that America has been turned in to a cross between Nazi Germany and the Looney Tunes on Afghan heroine and Disney Pixie dust

        it’ll probably freak him right out lol :lol:

        • maxxy

          Busta….If he wasn’t crazy coming out of the basement, He is now. I love your description of our current situation……. :wink:

      This is the weirdest thing I’ve read for years!

      • SickOfTheStupid

        each one of those barrels of LSD probably held a 100 million doses …………at $5 each dose that was worth millions ……12 barrels what happened to the 3 empty’s ?

          LSD is sucha a beautiful drug but when its misused its a deadly one too!

      fake story. first picture was created… second picture is from a car crashing into a house in ferguson, mo ( interesting story but completely fabricated.

      • Nancy636

        Seems you are correct. Why do they have to just make a story up?

        • TruthBeyondReason

          to confuse us amongst the true stories that get out… discernment is our greatest strength. plus, as long as you have general understanding of how the internet works, you really can’t be fooled by these false hoods anymore… do you’re own research and usually you can tell if a story is on the up-and-up or not in a matter of minutes… after doing it for so long eventually the fake stories out there stick out like sore thumbs…

        • Geeper

          It’s from, one of those crummy “satirical” sites that makes up wild but unfunny stories in the hope that people will share the stories like this as fact, and link back to the original, which runs pay-per-click advertising.

          They lie for money.

        • Geeper

          And annoying those these stories are, it’s always useful to see who takes them at face value without doing even ten seconds fact-checking on google. :lol:

      • The Clucker

        I was wondering that as well since I doubt this fella was leaving his hiding place to get purple beard dye. Plus there is no way he could have stayed hidden that long down there with other people living in the house. What would he have been using as a bathroom? It would have taken much less than 20 years of constant LSD abuse to finally break and start freaking out.

        I love when 419 mentions me by name. It’s especially flattering. Chickenhead is a great name so thanks for that. I hope it sticks. I never vote for my own posts. It seems a bit poopy to me. You seem to be trying to kiss my ass, 419, with all of the flattery and all. I didn’t know you were a weiner watching fudge packer.

      • Pateriot

        This kind of anti-Christian diatribe gets a dozen likes? The NWO types who have worked diligently to erase Western culture and replace it with a multicultural utilitarian one, easily molded, must be ecstatic at their results.

        Speaking of Butt-buddies, it’s nice to see you taking a break by temporarily retracting your tongue from Chris Kitze’s chilly ring. Looks like that break is about over as you wasted all your time ranting over something no one will read (because you suck).

          It stands for “too long, didn’t read.”

          Maybe think about shortening your rants up a bit and then people might actually read them. Just something for you to think about.

            I do forget, The Clucker, that people like you are REALLY stupid!
            That’s right!!

      Old fake stuff, typical Pritchett post.

      Also the headline says missing 20 years, then the story dates him as missing since 1984. That’s 31 years, kids.

      • An Observer

        Although it is funny that when you hold the mouse over this Pritchett article, it shows a picture of a man performing an oral sex act on an animal.

          Figured. Got the brightness down in my cell phone to conserve battery, and didn’t feel like looking extra close at it. Why does Jeffery feel the need to share his pornography tastes with us?

        Pretty sure it goes against the TOS here too, since you can’t swear, I’m pretty sure that means you can’t post bestiality pictures either.

      Why is the thumbnail to this story a photo of a guy giving head to a horse?

      • An Observer

        Because Jeffery Pritchett, host of a horrible low quality radio show, is also into bestiality. Although I’m sure he’ll try to say it’s just his “dark sense of humor”. Even though my humor can be dark, I’ve never posted pictures of bestiality.

        But to good ol Jeff, a guy giving head to an animal, that’s worth posting in the main page of a news site.

        He should be banned for it.

      “this story is unconfirmed and lots of debate whether it happened or not”…I truly wish more people would label their articles as absolute BS more on this site, I applaud the writer for doing this. I mean, I know it’s hard NOT to believe a man was in a hidden room in someone else’s house for 20 years, and obviously never needed to use the restroom, had room to store 20 years worth of garbage from the “50 years of rations”, never needed any medical attention, and was dead quiet while tripping on 3 barrels of acid. No smells ever came from the room, not even the sound of him accidentally dropping something, nothing. This story was soooo totally believable until I read the “this article is completely made up” on the bottom.
