GREENVILLE, SC (WSPA) – Police are investigating a piece of muscle tissue that was found inside a shipping container at the CVS on Main Street in Greenville.

The Greenville County Coroner said the material appears to be skeletal muscle of some kind, and that it is not a tongue.

DNA testing will be done to determine if the muscle tissue is human or animal.

Detectives with the Greenville Police Department are working to track the origins of the container to find an explanation for the object.

Police say the container originated in North Carolina and traveled to Georgia before arriving in Greenville.

The container also held other products but none of the products were meat or dairy related.
