I’m sorry, I just don’t get this at all
A mother fears a burglar has eaten her son’s placenta after it was stolen from her freezer, alongside frozen meat.
Auckland mother Loralie Burns said she received the disturbing news from her former landlord on Saturday.
The 35-year-old recently moved houses within the suburb of Sunnyvale, but her washing machine and fridge-freezer were still at the old property.
A thief ransacked the vacant house, rifling through kitchen cupboards and making off with the contents of the freezer: Some meat that was due to be thrown out, and a Tupperware container holding something far more precious.
“My mind’s still blown,” Burns said. “In the freezer was some meat that was supposed to go in the rubbish, and a plastic container that has my placenta in it.”
Burns kept the placenta after giving birth to her now-5-month-old son, Dante. She said it had huge sentimental value, and her family had planned to bury it somewhere significant.
Why in the name of hell would you have that in your freezer?
