MORRISTOWN (WATE) – A Morristown man received a scare after buying the contents of a storage locker at an auction. The items included decapitated and dismembered dolls as well as a whole assortment of weapons.

"This feels like human skin," Barry Mabe said, as he showed 6 News hardened pieces of what he believes could be human skin.

"I think it's pretty messed up. I don't know if it's a Halloween joke, or if somebody gets off on something like that. It's kind of creepy," Mabe said.

Mabe purchased the contents of the locker at an auction at the Storage Loft on West Andrew Johnson Highway over the weekend.

"Every once in a while you'll find something nice, if you know what you're looking for," Mabe said.

What he uncovered was the last thing he expected to find. Mabe also found books in the lot.

"Some sort of rituals, how to cast spells and stuff like that," he said.

He also found papers that appeared to be job applications with the personal details of people.

"I don't know. I hope it's nothing. I hope it's someone who has a wild imagination or something like that. It's just creepy," Mabe said.

Records show the locker was rented to a man who served time in prison. However, police say they aren't investigating because there's nothing criminal in what Mabe found.

"It's not an everyday occurrence," he said.

Barry Mabe says he will certainly be a lot more cautious the next time he pays money, not knowing what he's going to get.

"I'll definitely always have it at the back of my mind when I buy one from now on," Mabe said.
