💀The State of Ohio Asylum for the Insane has an inactive graveyard located in Franklin County, OH. It was used to bury indigent patients of the Columbus State Hospital and unclaimed children who died at the nearby Juvenile Detention center. The detention center is also known as the Training Institute of Central Ohio or (TICO). About a quarter of the tombstones contain the names of the deceased. The others are simply marked with an M or F to identify the gender followed by numerals. But the most bizarre grave at this cemetery is a tombstone that simply states …..“Specimens.” TICO provided maximum security incarceration for serious juvenile felony offenders and had a pretty bad reputation. There was also widespread reporting of abuses occurring there. A 1981 government report by the National Criminal Justice Reference Center stated that TICO was an example of an institution that imposed “substantial suffering and punishment on their inmates.” Examples cited included rapes, severe beatings by the guards, and children who were reportedly released but, in actuality, died there.
The Specimens grave is unique because nobody really knows what’s buried under the stone. We can assume that whatever lies here is human, but anything more would just be speculation. One hypothesis is that the grave houses the remains of human body parts, organs, and tissues that removed through surgeries or used for research.💀
