Storage War Stories – The Improvisational Mortician

The world of storage units can be a complex one. There are many scandals, murders, thefts, and other sordid happenings. But, at Greenbar Secure Storage, we’re as pure and innocent as the snow.

Many television shows have been about storage units and the secrets they hold. (Greenbar Secure Storage does not have any secrets. What you see is what you get, especially in terms of information and pricing).

It is amazing to see what people keep in their units. Sometimes, there are precious artifacts. Sometimes, forbidden lovers send love letters. Sometimes, there is a dead body.

It’s not just inside the storage units that tells the story. Sometimes it’s the surrounding environment of the storage unit.

There are Storage Stories and Storage War Stories. This is a Storage War Story.

Greenbar Secure Storage has a place to store your items. We just hope that “you” are, you know, actually alive.

We didn’t think we’d ever have to remember that, but we heard about the Ventura story and decided to share it. Similar to what the man in the story was trying.

A man by the name of Joseph O’Donnell, has worked his whole career as a mortician. His grandfather passed the business to him, but he lost his license in 2008, and his funeral home closed. He was left with nothing and no dreams.

O’Donnell chose to accept and spend deposits from relatives whose loved ones had just passed away, but now he is unable to do his “work.”

He improvised.

O’Donnell rented storage units, which he used to store his product. We mean products, not bodies. He kept human bodies in his storage area and gave the ashes of an unknown source to his grieving customers.

Someone eventually got the idea. Because there is a limit to how many dead bodies you can store in one unit before people start asking questions. O’Donnell did not have the answers to their questions when they started asking them, so he was charged with multiple counts, including improper disposal.

The takeaway: While we are sure that you don’t need us to say this, please do not keep dead bodies in your Greenbar Secure Storage unit. There are many things we can do for you, but there is a limit to what we can do with corpses.
