CULLMAN COUNTY, AL (WBRC) -
A mysterious liquid is seeping from a crypt in Cullman, causing concerns for residents and those who keep the cemetery grounds.
The liquid is coming from underneath one or two crypts at the mausoleum on the grounds of Cullman Memory Gardens.
Over the last several years, the grounds have has several owners and financial struggles. Recently, Ron Foust, who owns the wedding venue Stone Bridge Farms, has started voluntarily cleaning up the grounds with some of his staff.
As they've done so, they and others have started noticing the leak. So what is it? Foust isn't sure, but believes the liquid may be coming from corpses as a part of the decomposition process.
He points out that because of the financial challenges the cemetery has faced, the water and power was off for months. It's back on now but Foust believes that's played a role.
"When you go up there, when the air was not running, it was 80-90 degrees on the inside. So you know if the building was that hot the crypts would have to be equally that hot," Foust said.
"The power being off, it couldn't have vented properly because without electricity those fans couldn't work," he explained.
Foust says he plans to bleach and clean the spot.
A man named Jim Enneper owns the cemetery by default as a result of a court proceeding. FOX6 called him about the issue but has not yet gotten a return call.
FOX6 also called the Cullman County Health Department but they have not yet returned our call.
Ron Foust says he has spoken with Enneper about the problem and says Enneper assured him the problem will be fixed.
