Ancient Mummy found in northwest Indiana could be 2,000 years old

A team of archaeologists uncovered a mummified body that could be 2,000 years old on the site of the controversial Singleton Stone quarry in south Lake County.


The mummy’s head and torso was distinguished and found in Eagle Creek Township, southeast of Lowell.

The archaeologists will investigate whether they stumbled onto a Native American burial ground and Forensic anthropologist Stephen Nawrocki and University of Indianapolis graduate students look for clues as investigators seek to identify bones of the mummy.

But according to Cody Allen Gronkiewicz there is something very odd is happening at this quarry.

Cody excited for a chance to volunteer for this site contacted a professor of anthropology at Indiana University Bloomington and the forensic anthropologist Stephen Nawrocki who was supposedly called to the scene but both gave Cody no chance to volunteer for this site.

Cody: “It was a semi-controversial quarry but what makes the discovery of this mummy so special is the fact that Native Americans didn't wrap up a corpse ceremonially like the stereotypical ancient Egyptian mummy.”


It is possible that a story was made up to prevent the quarry from working. There is definitely something wrong with the story published on several main stream media.

  1. Just carbon date the tape. The tape looks like tape you would but in the 20th and 21's century. If it is 2,000 years old you'll know. That's some well made tape and a nice wrap job too.

    Read "The Ancient Giants Who Ruled America" - Richard Dewhurst. Giants ruled N.America before the American Indian. And they were White skinned and red haired. Even the Native Indians have them in their literature. They were called the mound builders and the mounds in the central states Indiana included still exists today.

  2. Hi! I'm Cody Gronkiewicz, the actual writer of the counter-arguing article told about above. I never really wanted any attention beyond what my facebook friends would think, and since I didn't realize I was quoted on my post on various blogs (and most of which don't do my research any justice), I'm going through and updating people on what the situation was now that nearly half a year has passed.

    There was nothing dramatic about the experience (not dramatic enough for a negative image anyways). I wasn't denied volunteer time, because the professor wasn't even on the case. In fact, he doesn't even work in the field of ancient anthropology. He works in modern forensic anthropology. He was absolutely clueless when I showed him the articles that said he was working there. The image that went viral isn't even original either. It's a cheap image you can find throughout the internet for different articles beyond any that concern Indiana. So once everything settled out and everyone had the common sense to say, "Duh! everything that they're saying in the news is completely fabricated," everything went as it would have if the incident never happened. The quarry is fully functional with no more "mummy" discoveries.

    Plus, I have no idea how everybody forgot about the fact that this entire region of Northwest Indiana has been a swamp for hundreds of years until fairly recently, and it still floods seasonally and has a marsh (which is maybe within a mile of this quarry may I add). The body would have decomposed MUCH faster in seasonally wet soil (which was all the quarry was at the time of the original article).

    Now that this 18-year-old has disclosed this "dramatic mystery" for all the people out there who mindlessly create, read, comment on, and share whatever crosses their face like they're some sort of expert in the field, I hope everyone can rest easy.

    You're welcome,
    Cody Gronkiewicz
