Recently unemployed, Richard Schilling decided to tackle the junk in his Brooklyn garage — and found something that sent a chill down his spine.

“I was like, ‘This is creepy. This is not supposed to be here,'” he said. What Schilling found was a heavy gravestone, “a creepy gravestone that should not be in my garage,” he said.
