A tiny coffin with the preserved body of a three-year-old girl is probably one of the last things these workers expected to find when renovating a San Francisco home. But what made this discovery even more puzzling is what the little child was still clutching in her remarkably unspoiled hands.
It all started when Ericka Karner decided to remodel her childhood home in San Francisco’s Richmond District. Karner was not actually around at the time, however, as she had moved to Idaho to live with family members while the work took place.
But, as construction workers arrived at the house, there was no indication that this job would be any different from others that they’d done before. That said, this perception quickly changed not long after they began their work.
