BRIDGEPORT, Conn. — Court officials tracking a “putrid smell” at the Golden Hill Street courthouse made a gruesome discovery Wednesday — two decapitated chickens under a bench, according to the Connecticut Post.

The chickens, decorated in gold, green and silver glitter, were found feet up in the large arraignment court, the Post said.

And this isn’t the first time: Decapitated chickens have been found in both the Golden Hill and Main Street courthouses and some believe they are part of a Santeria ritual to protect a person from being found guilty, according to the Post.

It’s unclear how the chickens got in the room and the incident is under investigation.
