Storage Wars is a reality show on A&E that follows five people as they bid on storage units that are being auctioned off. In California, where the show is filmed, storage units go on the auction block after 3 months rent has been missed on them.
“It was a very horrific story, and it was an occult group and all that kind of stuff.Darrell tells Reality Weekly
Each person has their nickname and Darrell Sheets is known as “The Gambler” and often works with his son, Brandon, at the auctions. Two spin-off shows are in the works in New York and Texas. Darrell has been bidding on storage units for 32 years. Some of his greatest findings included a big comic book collection, four drawings by Picasso, and a letter written by Abraham Lincoln that sold for $15,000.
His creepiest finding, however, was a dead body that he found in a unit he bought(before the Storage Wars show). The corpse was wrapped in plastic. Darrell called the police and after interviewing him, he was determined to not be a suspect. The police determined that the previous owner of the locker murdered his wife and stuck her in the storage unit.
I actually found a body years ago in like 1988 down in Sand Diego, California,” he says. “You know, I don’t really want to talk about it a whole lot, but it wasn’t a pleasant situation. But in this business it does happen. I’ve found ashes, coffins…Darrell Sheets
In an aired episode fellow star Dave Hester also found a Human Skeleton in a storage unit.
Back in 2018 Elvira hosted a Storage Wars Halloween special which we really wanted to hear more about the corpse that was found.
