A suspected burglar was killed after being crushed by a 900-pound safe in a home in Indiana this week, authorities have confirmed.

The Marion Police Department reportedly received a call on Tuesday, 12, from a man, George Hollingsworth, who told his garage was broken into.

According to a press release, the man told police that the door frame was broken and the garage was so cluttered and thus he didn't able to tell what was stolen.

Deputy Chief Stephen D. Dorsey said that George was cleaning out the garage on Wednesday, March 13, to find out what has been stolen when he found a body underneath a 900-pound safe that had fallen over.

The man told Indianapolis' FOX 59, "My mind couldn’t comprehend it. I would have rather seen him steal stuff and get out than die like that. What a horrible way to die."

According to police, the Marion Fire Department helped George to lift the safe and remove the body.

An autopsy was performed on the failed burglar on Thursday, March 14, after which he was identified as Jeremiah A. Disney, 28, of Marion.
