Letter, receipt and tapes found in mysterious safe

MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) -Construction workers found a safe buried on Wednesday at what used to be known as Tindall Heights. They brought it to the Macon Housing Authority on Friday and on Monday, it was opened for everyone to see.

It wasn’t money or jewels, but it’s still a mystery. The safe found, two feet under the ground, had a letter, a receipt and two tiny cassette tapes. There was a ‘Macon Housing Authority’ envelope, with a letter inside but the paper was too wet to read. The receipt had a date on it from 1992, so it’s not exactly ancient. Especially because of the two AT&T cassette tapes, that appear to be for a voicemail machine. There were also four keys and some change.

Macon Housing Authority CEO, June Parker says it wasn’t what she was expecting, but she’s not disappointed..

“It’s still exciting because it does relate back to Tindall. Even if it’s from the 70s, the 80s or the 90s, it is still part of Tindall and the history that’s there,” said Parker. “I had a great time doing this.”

Tindall Heights was knocked down about a year ago. It’s in the process of being replaced with Tindall Senior Towers, which is how workers came across the safe.

The letter and tapes will need to be dried before we know what’s on them. Parker says she with the help of others will look into it as soon as possible..
