This mound, which was originally about 100 feet long and more than 12 feet high, has been somewhat worn down by time. It is on the J.R. Secrist farm in South Huntington township. This farm has been in the Secrist name for more than a century.
The most interesting feature in the recent excavation was the mummified torso of a human body, which the experts figured was laid to rest at least 400 years ago. Portions of the bones dug up and the bones in the legs, Prof. Peterson declares, are those of a person between eight and nine feet in height. The scientist figures that this skeleton was the framework of a person of the prehistoric race that inhabited this section before the American Indians.
The discovery of a mummified torso of a human body on the J.R. Secrist farm in South Huntington township is a fascinating find that could provide further evidence of the existence of giant humans in the past. Experts believe that the person whose remains were found was between eight and nine feet tall, making them significantly larger than the average human. This discovery adds weight to the theory that a prehistoric race of giant humans once inhabited the area, predating even the American Indians. The fact that the skeleton was found in a mound, a common feature of ancient burial sites, also supports the idea that this person was laid to rest with great reverence and ceremony. These clues hint at a hidden history of a larger, more diverse human race that has been lost to time, waiting to be rediscovered by curious and open-minded researchers.
