Gardeners made a surprising discovery in a $23 million Silicon Valley mansion


Landscapers working in the yard of a $US15 million ($23.5 million) mansion in Silicon Valley discovered a car filled with bags of concrete that smelled of human remains that had been buried decades ago.

The car was found Thursday in the exclusive San Francisco suburb of Atherton, populated by tech executives and millionaires, police said in a news release.

According to Atherton Police Chief Daniel Larsen, cadaver dogs alerted to possible human remains, but none were found more than 12 hours after the car was dug up. NY Post reports.

Police believe the car was buried four to five feet deep in the 1990s — before the current owners bought the house — but Larsen would not say what led detectives to that conclusion.

He said unused bags of concrete were spread all over the car, although it was covered in dirt on the roof.

The large house and property are valued at $US15 million ($23.5 million). San Francisco Chronicle informed.

Larsen said current homeowners who purchased properties in 2020 are not suspected.

Police said the registered owner of the vehicle is being sought, but has not been named at this time.

Records show the current occupants of the sprawling property in the 300 block of Stockbridge Avenue are Meta software engineer Paul Saab and his wife, angel investor Crystal Condon Saab.

The couple lives in a five-bedroom, seven-bathroom home with three young children.

According to a recent Facebook post, Condon Saab is pregnant with her fourth child.

The mansion the Saabs live in was built in 1990 and sold in 2014 for $US7.3 million ($11.4 million). Purchased in March 2020.

Atherton was named the most expensive postcode in the country for the fifth consecutive year in November 2021, according to property information company PropertyShark.

The median home price in the town of 7,000 is about $US7.5 million ($11.7 million).

Famous current and former residents include late Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen, Fleetwood Mac’s Lindsey Buckingham, disgraced Theranos founder Elizabeth Holmes, NBA star Stephen Curry, Google chairman Eric Schmidt and MLB Hall of Famer Ty Cobb.
